Stepping out from Old Street station can be a pretty daunting endeavour. Once you finally work out which of the gazillion exits to emerge from, you’re thrown into a tangle of roads, flashing signs and left with almost no idea what to do with yourself. But if you’re willing to brave the maze thenjust…
Nightjar in Shoreditch is conceived as an antidote to overcrowded West End bars and flashy nightclubs. As a destination for discerning drinkers to meet, linger and relax, Nightjar entices with quality cocktails, attentive personal service and a vibrant and varied live music programme. This is the ultimate speakeasy bar of London - descend the stairs and be prepared to be enchanted by a 1920's scene of candlelit tables, glorious tin cup cocktails, where jazz and swing bands will soundtrack your evening. It is seating only at Nightjar, so make a booking and soak up the magical atmosphere of this jazz and cocktail heaven. There is no other bar in London, let alone Shoreditch, like this.
Nightjar has made numerous changes in order to reopen safely for both staff and guests. You can read the full booking policy here and we summarise the key points below:
Nightjar currently takes bookings 30 days in advance. In light of Social Distancing and reduced capacity, they have been forced to make some changes to the booking policy, as outlined below:
Minimum spend introduced for all bookings
Nightjar now requires a minimum spend of £30 per person. This will be taken as a deposit in order to confirm the reservation. This includes entry fee and service charge on the minimum spend.
This will help to avoid no shows and last minute cancellations which may leave the bar with empty tables. Entering a post-lockdown world, Nightjar is striving to avoid empty tables, support employees and provide the best possible service and atmosphere to customers.
Please let Nightjar know before 1pm on the day of your booking if you wish to cancel your table. After this time, your deposit of £30pp is non refundable. If you are running late, please do let them know via email (firstname.lastname@example.org). They usually only hold tables for 15 minutes.
Track & Trace
The person who makes the booking has a responsibility to inform their other guests if at a later date Nightjar contacts you in regards to the UK Government's Track & Trace programme.
Arriving at the venue
You may have to wait a few minutes for your table to be ready to allow for extra cleaning.
Nightjar asks for the whole party to have arrived no later than 30 minutes after the start of your booking time, after which they reserve the right to release additional tables to walk ins.
If you are running late please do not phone, but instead email email@example.com and the host will be able to respond directly.
Due to Government guidelines, they e do not currently have any live music at Nightjar. As soon as that changes they look forward to welcoming back a brilliant roster of musicians.
Due to Social Distancing, 6 people is the largest booking the bar can accommodate.
If you have any special requests please let Nightjar know and they will do our best to accommodate them. Please make your host aware of any allergies upon arrival.
Please note that they do not host 18th or 21st birthday parties.
If your booking time is unavailable, this is because they are fully booked for reservations. You are welcome to try your luck on the door for a walk in table.
Due to the reduced capacity of the venue, they will no longer hold tables back for walk ins, so we encourage you to book in advance. Of course if you are passing you are welcome to try your luck on the door.
Nightjar has an over 21s policy.
