Gem Bar and club is a versatile hotspot for any night out in Soho, with its lavish décor, friendly atmosphere and a late night party arena in the basement. The interior style is a blend of industrial steel and a classy modern edge. The minimalistic furniture comes alive with the flirty deep red lights and chandeliers.

The ground floor is sleek and sophisticated with a long bar, big windows, comfortable leather booths and tables, making it an ideal place for after work drinks or cocktails. The drinks menu is as impressive with a kaleidoscope of cocktails and wines to devour during their great Happy Hours.

DJs playing commercial hits reign at Gem throughout the week and in the downstairs bar you’ll find the dance floor where you can let loose and enjoy late night clubbing until 3am. Gem is excellent at catering for special events or celebrations with its restaurant, bar and club all in one. They also offer many deals and promotional packages when you make a booking with them in advance so book your guest list or tables with DesignMyNight to get free entry and drinks deals!

Very rude security staff, the gentlemen was dark skinned had a Mohawk. Also he had shaved eyebrows, he went on to swearing at me and my friends saying "get the fuck out of here!!!" And continued on swearing at us and said he doesn't care if his management yells him off as he won't get sacked? It's disgraceful that security is allowed to swear at their customers like this. He was incredibly rude the whole night and was fighting with the staff claiming he doesn't care about the Gem Bar and what the management thinks of his behaviour? A disgrace and another birthday ruined.

Booked Gem Bar for my birthday and it was awesome. Had an area book and bar tab! Lady was friendly and fun. Great night!
by on November 12th, 2017

Booked an area at Gem for my 21st Birthday drinks. Firstly, we found the lady on the door quite unwelcoming. The Service was absolutely appalling. It took over an hour to get our drinks as after waiting for 30 mins our server came over and said our order had been forgotten. We then waited a further half hour after that to get our drinks (that never arrived at our table)from the bar. When I mentioned this to the manager all we got was an extended happy hour (of 40 minutes) which by this time we wanted to leave. Very disappointed

Worst bar in the west end I've ever been to. They threw me and my friend out because they are racist. They don't like white /Asian couples in the bar and they obviously felt threatened by that. We were the least of all drunk people in the bar. Anyone coming to London - do not make the horrid choice of choosing this awful racist bar as a place you want to stay for the night.

Beautiful place with great music.

Love this place. So much fun, cheap entry, however drinks are London prices... You are always guaranteed a decent night if you can't get into any other place near by, however late you are.

rubbish, photos here are overrated, it doesn't look anything like it. We were given a table near the dance floor for dinner which is what we requested but there was no service to be seen. We had to ask were the waitress was and chase them. the hostess was young and lovely it wasn't her fault and she did try her best, but i was embarrassed to have taken my friends there. I asked the manager if he could turned down the music a bit as there was noone downstairs and it was hard to hear each other. The manager refused. we asked the DJ for a couple of songs, he said "later" and dismissed us, there was noone on the dance floor but us, he could have complied. It is just silly. This is for people in their 20s looking for a not very nice place to go dancing not for anyone looking for quality. They also asked for a credit card which the hostess took with her and of course wasn't given back so my friend had to cancel it the following day.

Thank you for giving your feedback on your recent visit to Gem Bar, as we always strive to keep our customers happy I am sorry to read that you did not enjoy the time you spent here or the venue. As we are a nightclub the music volume will always be on the louder side on a Saturday night, and I wish this would have been communicated to you as you booked a table in the club area. I apologise if it seemed like the DJ was ignoring your requests for songs, unfortunately he has a music policy to follow through out the night and need to stick to certain genres as he is playing both in the club and the bar upstairs through out the night. I am glad that you liked the host, good feedback for team members is always appreciated and I will make sure that I feed this back to her as well. Due to a large amount of customers we have on tables we require a card to hold as a deposit when you have tabs running, with your bill it should have been presented back to you though. I apologise for the inconvenience your friend had as she did not receive the card back and having to cancel it, I will make sure this is brief to the team to avoid incidents like this. If I can assist you in anything else please don't hesitate to contact me directly at, I hope you have a lovely day. Kind regards, Mia Unander | Assistant General Manager | Gem Bar

We had a booth booking for my 20th birthday here on the 13/12/2014. The place is really packed and service can be slow but the decor and music definitely make up for it! We got some drinks with the package but bought a lot more and the amount of alcohol in the package pitchers was a lot less than those that we bought seperately. It was also disappointing that we never got the "free birthday shots" we were promised via email but all in all it was a good night! In most places, the bouncers are straight up rude but at gem they're assertive and lovely. Very rare in London!

Is OK. I went because it had a good star rating and design my night website catagorized it as a cheap place to drink. A pint of becks is £5.50 which is pretty reasonable for a bar/club in central, but my girlfriend ordered a double rum and coke - £13? Apparently a shot of cheap rum costs £6. I have worked in pubs and restaurants for 17 years and i have never been in a place where a cheap shot costs more than a whole pint. Industry standard is marking up a percentage from cost price on any product. So in that way the spirits pricing is a big con. I'd be happy to drink beer all night but if you're going with a group of girls who earn average money and don't drink beer - I'd avoid this placeplace like the plague. There's plenty of places in central better than this. If I'm paying £13 for a rum and coke I'd expect it to be served in a glass at least and have the offer of a lime?! Lol... Should not be categorized in in domicidal 'design my night'. Time to review your website and filters!!!

Thank you for taking time to give feedback on your recent visit to Gem Bar. Due to our vast range of spirits means that we do have some high end and thus more expensive spirits than others. We are constantly striving to stay in the game with our pricings compared to other clubs around us so we got an happy hour where we offer 40% off on selected spirits which is between 5pm-8pm everyday of the week. Please feel free to drop me an email on where I would be able to assist you further in person. Mia Unander, Assistant General Manager

Great bar/club space to reserve a booth, enjoy some cocktails and dance the night away. Packed on a weekend and the DJ plays song after song to get you dancing.

Liked the place..the music was just too good...very good staff who will make sure you feel great...Drinks were not expensive ...felt great to be there and visit again in the near future

Positives: Staff were very friendly and super nice. A free drink was given to me and my guest by way of an apology for the dirty booth. Music was amazing - commercial and dance floor filler music all night. I would go back on an ordinary night for a boogie! Negatives: I ordered and agreed 2 areas, one upstairs till 10ish and then another downstairs, the area upstairs was not booked and although Gem allocated an area very quickly for me I did have to ask for it to be cleaned. Very hot in the bar and club!

Did my birthday night out here and it was brilliant. The staff were so helpful and reserved a booth for me and my friends. The music was really good and the drinks were reasonably priced! Will definitely be back!

Awesome place for partying, good staff and crowd is pretty crazy!

One of Central London's best late-night DJ bars, always a good crowd with an atmosphere to match!

Gem Bar is good if you're catching up with friends, they do a really good happy hour, where most drinks and food are half price.

A cosy place for hyped after work drinks! Great brain damage shots. However I was not very impressed by their playlist :)
by on September 4th, 2012

Bit of a wait when I first arrived, when I got in the venue was what I expected. Nothing spectacular but overall had a good time with my group. decent prices, great atmosphere

Hidden venue, really nice

I go to Gem for its really good happy hour (cheap cocktails and food-can't go wrong), its efficient friendly staff and its people watching. On a Fridays and Saturdays the clientele are amazing; the very drunk and very funny after work crowd. Come early to grab a good seat, have some food and to view the night's goings-on over a cocktail
