Tucked away down some discreet steps is the very unassuming but brilliant London Cocktail Club. With a look back to the image of the British navy, the interior is fitted out with cosy leather booths and the decor plays on the naval style tattoo designs and images. LCC is not gimicky in any way shape or form, it is an intricate, cool, basement bar where you can come and enjoy fine drinks, awesome food and a bloody good atmosphere.

The cocktails are the main draw and the expert bar staff can quite literally make you pretty much any classic concoction you fancy, but their own creations offer that something extra special. With the list of ingredients for these weird and wonderful concoctions even stretching to Bacon and Eggs, they really do have to be tried to be appreciated. With incredible cocktails, a delicious menu, and an anything-goes atmosphere, London Cocktail Club Shaftesbury Avenue is perfect for a post-work tipple or full on let your hair down weekend celebration.

Come and join us for the best Happy Hour in town

I took my best friend here as part of her 30th. I reserved a table and pre-ordered the birthday cocktail which came out with a sparkler and loads of whipped cream (and booze). The waitress made a real fuss of my friend which was great. Go here for a special event or for happy hour!

Amazing place to chill and relaxwith your mates. Would recommend it to anyone looking for a fun and chilled night out. The prices weren't too bad and the staff were nice aswell.

Only there for just over an hour, but friendly service (although confusion over our first order) and the drinks were lovely - especially the Old Fashioned and their take on the Espresso Martini. Kman81 visited The London Cocktail Club Shaftesbury Avenue on 16 Aug 2016

Amazing start to our day celebrating our friends 30th. Mark made us all feel really welcome and cocktails were delicious! Toasted marshmallows were a yummy touch!

Had a Cocktail Masterclass on Saturday 6th Feb. The class was great both bar tenders went into detail and both were very entertaining well worth the money they made it a great hour and half got to try many cocktails. Stayed on after as we booked onto the guest list the great night continued, drinks were fantastic venue is relaxed music really good. We both had a great fun night. Cheers.

I booked tables at The London Cocktail Club Shaftesbury Avenue for 16 people and it was absolutely fantastic. The venue has it's own, unique style, cocktails are wonderful and staff is very friendly. I have also pre-ordered cupcakes for all of my guests and they were waiting for us once we arrived (they were really tasty too!). I definitely recommend that venue if you're looking for a new and interesting place for a night out in London! w_kowalski visited The London Cocktail Club Shaftesbury Avenue on 15 Jan 2016

I booked a table for 4 people at the Shaftsbury Av cocktail club. Booked for 5.30. I turned up ahead of my 3 guests (clients of mine), to try find the table. Was not greeted at the door by anyone, so I walked around to find the table. No reservation anywhere... So I grabbed a passing waitress, asked where my table was- she told me to wait 5 mins... After 5 mins I grabbed her again, at which point she then asked me the name of the group and told me to wait... I then 5 mins later had to grab her YET again, and she casually said sorry, we don't have a reservation for you. I proceeded to show her my confirmation email, at which point she said there was nothing they could do and did I want to go to another venue?!! Highly embarrassing for me as I was entertaining that evening and had to find a pub nearby at v short notice, and which to be frank was not the ideal entertaining location I would not recommend this place to anyone who is looking to reserve a spot for business or really just any occasion, as you are liable to turn up, be ignored and waste your time nohandlename visited The London Cocktail Club Shaftesbury Avenue on 10 Dec 2015

I booked the Shaftesbury Avenue club cocktail masterclass for a corporate entertainment event - there were 6 of us. We had a brilliant time - the bar staff were very friendly and charismatic and it was definitely worth every penny! aimzjay visited The London Cocktail Club Shaftesbury Avenue on 04 Dec 2015

Had part of my hen do there on Saturday. We had so much fun. We were welcomed by Keiron who helped make our time there fun and informative. He knew the cocktails inside out and made us laugh from start to finish. I would definitely recommend. Thank you again. garfield1981 visited The London Cocktail Club Shaftesbury Avenue on 24 Oct 2015

Fantastic evening. waitress knew her stuff and recommendations were perfect. Nice tunes, although loud if just wanting to chat (we didn't, as it turned out). Friendly place indeed. Recommend to friends for sure

I wouldn't recommend going to London Shaftsbury. On the email it says that you will make 2-3 cocktails but you only make 1! The rest of the time was spent sitting watching other people in the group make cocktails. Complete waste of time and money. Although you are given 4 cocktails, I booked this cocktail experience for my fiances birthday and was disappointed both by the staff, venue and attitude. I tried to call but haven't received a reply. It's an old dark venue and I wouldn't go again.

Easy to book and find. My friends and I absolutely loved it. Lovely service, great cocktails, also fantastic range. Great venue and the food is also very good. Recommend to everyone.

First time visit. Booked it. Had great company. Brilliant service n smile from the waitress, in a candle lit setting(but not too romantic). Tasty drinks, tasty music! Deffo come again.
02 Aug 2015 by carby1986

We booked as a party of 11 on a Saturday just as they opened. The Happy Hour deal was great,our server was amazing,cocktails were so impressive and we would all book to go again.
28 Jul 2015 by beckycharles

Nice atmosphere and cocktails. A good place to go after work, but don't bother ordering any of the offers. It takes longer and is more effort to get "arrival cocktails" than cocktails ordered from the bar.
27 Jul 2015 by Audrey

It's always a great night here! The cocktails are awesome and innovative, The waiting staff are awesome, good fun always looking like they love their jobs! Deffo worth booking, I'd booked a table for 2 post dinner and glad we did as there's no way we'd have been able to get one on the off chance! I'd highly recommend this bar!
01 Jun 2015 by roseabad

Friday night was busy, we are glad we booked a table as pitching up hoping to find a table is a 'no go' on a Friday night. It was happy hour, 2 for 1, until 7pm, which was great, and the pizzas for £6 were very welcome and a great price for the size, enough for 2 as a bar snack. Great service fro both the mixologist behind the bar and the waitresses, they were all very friendly. I loved the porn star martinis.
19 Mar 2015 by soniavbuk

Pretty decent cocktails, and very good service from the floor staff, let down by the fact that it seemed no space had been saved for us and the staff had to ask another couple to move to accomodate and we were made to sit at a tiny little side bar under a very loud speaker so could barely hear each other talk, this despite booking nearly one week in advance.
09 Mar 2015 by nickolasz

Staff were brilliant, friendly, efficient and only aided in the fun we had! Thank you for another brilliant evening full of delicious cocktails, great music and perfect atmosphere - I only wish Happy hour was longer!
09 Mar 2015 by rhianfeather

The staff were lovely and the drinks were awesome. I went here on a first date on a Saturday and the atmosphere was great however I think it's a bit too loud for a first date here on a Saturday as we could hardly hear eachother.. Or if you wanted to catch up with a friend...however I think it's great for a fun time night out with friends!
02 Mar 2015 by sam123

Great cocktail bar the drinks were fabulous and I love the quirky way some of them are served. Great value during happy hour and our waitress was brilliant, loved the table service as meant we didn't have to queue up and wait to be served. It was a work do to celebrate someone's birthday and everyone agreed it was the perfect place to celebrate before going on for dinner. Will definitely be back.
01 Mar 2015 by murphg1

Had a great start to our evening on Saturday at the London Cocktail Club. First it was happy hour so the prices were extremely palatable and second the cocktails were lovely, especially the Porn Star Martini! Waitrose service was really prompt and efficient and it was a great venue. My only slight criticism would be the music that although great, was a little loud and the 4 of us ended up shouting at each other! Old age maybe?
24 Feb 2015 by Nicola

I booked for Valentines night having not been before. As it was a surprise I was a bit nervous as to what to expect and thought it would be very busy ! What a surprise an amazing bar tucked away nicely , great mixture of people and a great drinks menu at reasonable prices. I think the main reason we had such a good night was the service , despite being on her own our waitress was always there and quick to take our order , she also gave us some great recommendations! We will be back!
21 Feb 2015 by naosplodge

Was meaning to go to this place for far too long and boy am I glad I finally got around to it. Cocktails were delicious and the presentation was second to none. We also got little beer mugs of buttery popcorn every so often - such a nice touch to the experience. Would recommend the Fortune Cookie and Brambley Apple. Went on a Monday so cocktails were 2 for £10 - did someone say BARGAIN?
29 Jan 2015 by queenb

I absolutely loved this place! The cocktail list is great, not too big and loads of goodies on there for everyone in our party. The bar team are really welcoming and really know their stuff, one of my mates from New York is a real cocktail snob, even he was impressed by the knowledge they have and attention to detail they show. I've already booked my birthday here in September and pretty sure ill be in before then a few times.
26 Jan 2015 by jameswilliam

Really enjoyed it - nice staff and good service. The music was fun and table service was a definite plus. Possibly better to use something other than a doily to mark tables as being reserved - the name on ours had become blurred by someone spilling a drink on it, so took a while to find our table. Didn't put a dent in the night, but more of a simple fix.

This is not a bar for cocktail lovers. Sugary, pre-made drinks with no concept of how to make a proper cocktail. When we complained they said 'but this is how we make them' - no apology and no ability to change how the 'pre-set' drinks are made. It's a fun bar yes, kinda cool and trendy, but if you're looking for proper cocktails try somewhere else.
19 Jan 2015 by kevincar

Lovely cosy place. The drinks are great and every time we go there they treat us extremely well. It is the perfect place to chill and have a few cocktails.
21 Dec 2014 by vir88

Loved it!! Table service is a great bonus. The staff is friendly and helpful. Will certainly go back and take more friends there. It's more relaxing than the sister bars.
08 Dec 2014 by thoeftmann

Had a great night out, staff were very friendly. Appreciated the table service! I've been to two of the sister bars and this definitely meets the high standard set by the others. It is a bit of a nightmare when it gets so busy though!
07 Dec 2014 by Sophy

My local. I love this place. Great music, missed my usual cocktail waitress who is brilliant! The only criticism I have for that night was it was too busy. I booked a table for 4 and my 2 other guests were arriving later but the table next to us who had seemingly booked for 5/6 people max had about 12 people turn up and sat on our table, the staff didnt say anything to them and me and my friend were pushed into a corner while these other rude guests took over our space.
07 Dec 2014 by jasmin168

Sorry, but I found this a gloomy, dirty, noisy, smelly, unsophisticated, subterranean dive. Just about acceptable for inebriated students (plenty in evidence, chanting along at top volume). A thoroughly grim experience for anybody else. Cheap and nasty.

We had a great night at London Cocktail Club wish I could have stayed longer. Good atmosphere, amazing cocktails and a nice vibe. A must try cocktail is "Movie Night"
31 Aug 2014 by miss_lfc

Adore the cocktails here, incredibly creative and always damn delicious. Speakeasy vibes are a top addition too. And if anyone goes once they have the new Autumn 2014 menu, definitely tuck into the cannon fodder, amazing.
08 Aug 2014 by Katie

Awesome venue / vibe! The Skull/Candy cocktail was waaaayyyy too sweet though we had to send it back, all other cocktails were delicious though. We went on a Tuesday night for work drinks and it was pretty quiet so table service would have been nice but all in all a great night thank you :)
01 Aug 2014 by Clare

Fantastic cocktails and superb value during happy hour!, Great music and atmosphere with a very genial hostess makes for a top night out. Would highly recommend for pre-Theatre drinks, or just a good night out
22 Jul 2014 by hammerdivone

Love this place! There are hundreds of cocktail bars now but none better than LCC! the cocktails are inspired, the staff are great and I always have the best nights here!
08 Jul 2014 by gi_joe

LCC Shaftesbury Avenue is awesome. They greet you as you walk in, really quick to take orders at bar and just all round some of the best service I have had in London. Awesome atmosphere! Even better play lists. It gets busy so definitely book a table.

I enjoy LCC however I was not too pleased with the area we were given. we were spilling out into the main walkway, right by the men's toilets and there were two people that were not part of our group sat on a small table with in the rectangle area. If we had been given the whole area it would have been perfect. I understand not everyone can sit down but this just seemed a bit ridiculous.
02 Jun 2014 by ashleyhk38

Great fun as usual. The Brixton Riot cocktail is always a winner but I think it can be tricky to do at the table as the poor guy could only get one to light. To be fair they have to be careful to not set you on fire and burn the house down! I love that they still do that cocktail though. Also ordered a sharing cocktail and it tasted amazing and came in a pirate ship :). Great atmosphere for a casual get together.
29 May 2014 by craig12

Think some of the reviews are a bit harsh. I'd agree its not the prettiest out of the other london cocktail clubs but maybe thats why its getting some bad rep. Its still pretty damn cool and the cocktails are fun and inventive (take a wee bit too long get made)
23 May 2014 by victorialoves

Nice place, nice staff, nice decoration, music not very loud, free popcorn... but, there is always a but, 30£ for a bottle of red wine is excessive!!!!... unless I had to pay for the free popcorn and I didn't know :)
16 May 2014 by dsegura980

Staff were very helpful. The place was dingy and the music was way too loud for 7pm. The drinks were OK but for the price nothing special. Really needs the decor improved, with more character.
27 Apr 2014 by rosechris

Booked in for my birthday on a Friday night. The staff were so accommodating and helpful, the drinks were amazing, everyone had a fantastic night. Recommend it for anyone organising a party or if you're looking for a bit of atmosphere on a night out.
07 Apr 2014 by byrned

Great night out for my 30th birthday recently, fab music and expertly crafted cocktails! Definitely will be returning!
31 Jan 2014 by sofy_84

Great atmosphere, pretty small but makes up for it in the drinks. Don't be a wimp, try their breakfast cocktail, comes with a free piece of smoked bacon don't cha know
24 Dec 2013 by Katie

OMG!! Went here on Saturday for a friends birthday and LOVED it. The décor is awesome, not to mention the cocktails!

13 Feb 2013 by chloe_williams

Awesome night out! I recommend this one for parties and date nights. The staff really make the place, its great to get a bit of banter and some serious drinks. LOVE the music too!

04 Nov 2012 by jjgoodman

We go there sometimes after work, it's good for catching up with friends, we tend to move onto somewhere else after a couple of hours, not for any particular reason. But this place is def our local haunt.

15 Oct 2012 by out&about

Been here a few times and loved it, sadly the magic is rubbing off. The place felt like a sauna with no air and a weird musky smell in the air. The staff are lovely as usual and I opted for a bottle of wine instead of cocktails which was very reasonably priced!

28 Aug 2012 by barhop

This place is starting to look a bit shabby - kitchen door left open doesn't add to the magic, unimaginative list of happy hour cocktails. Staff are incredibly helpful however!

23 Jul 2012 by sunnyday

Went there on a Friday night, walk down the stairs to an amazingly decorated bar. Skull & Cross-bone wallpaper and swallow tattoo art. Free popcorn and the special house grog to start (believe me when I say the house grog is a kick in the teeth. bar staff are good fun and they know how to make a cocktail. Good mix of music that suits everyone's tastes. A brilliant night out and will be going back for sure! Thanks LCC

08 Jun 2012 by jpaine20

Really great bar. Not as good as the goodge street one for me but still has all the qualities you want! Great atmosphere, music, staff and drinks!! Perhaps 3 stars is a bit harsh but Im judging it against its 5 star sister bar! This is a very very welcome addition to the strange area around bloomsbury...lots of offices around there so i'm sure it will be full most weeks with after work drinkers! A brill cocktail basement!

11 Feb 2012 by jumpintothe_..

Similar to the other LCC (which is one of my favs) - amazing drinks and the staff SOOO friendly! Really like the feel down there and its a lovely escape to drink in. (look out for the skull and crossbones velour-esque wallpaper in one of the snug areas)

13 Jan 2012 by sarahb

I went here on thursday night eagerly as i LOVE london cocktail club on goodge street. This one will be equally as good i think. Cool decor (although i was hoping for more decorations on the walls), lovely rum drinks and a fun soundtrack. Great buzz down here!

13 Jan 2012 by funtimes

Loved it down here. Lively and such lovely barmen! I had the house grog which I think was 3 rums, port, sherry and arrak! Woweee. Blew my shoes off. Delish!
