Description

Topolski gallery, cafe, bar, venue replaces the 20th Century art bunker that has occupied the address for nearly two hundred years. The building originally functioned as a studio, belonging to Feliks Topolski, one of the official artists of World War II; step inside and you won't miss the dedication for a second - upon the walls of the cafe and bar hang a series of paintings produced by the man himself. The venue also plays host to specially curated live music events and club nights.

Topolski by day serves pressed juices, soups, stews, sandwiches, flatbread pizzas, sharing boards, fair trade coffee and cakes with a carefully selected playlist of down-tempo grooves. By night Topolski serves flatbread pizzas, meat, cheese and vegetarian sharing boards, irresistible bar snacks, classic cocktails, quality wines, popular range of beer and cider with a modern, upbeat playlist.

  • For private bookings Topolski offers canapés and bowl food. This menu is available on request.
  • The popular 2-4-1 offer on selected drinks runs 5pm-6pm Monday to Sunday and includes all cocktails, prosecco, Moretti beer and a choice of red or white wines.
  • Topolski even has a ping pong table.

Poor service (staff was rude, unhelpful, slow and inefficient... brought to us the wrong food and then brought it cold, cutlery for one rather than for two, didn't give us a a menu for ages etc.). Rather low quality drinks/food. It was quite hot and stuffy despite the tall ceilings. Decent prices and conveniently located. Seems suitable for post-work drinks as an alternative to a pub. Would not go back. visited Topolski Gallery and Bar on 09 May 2017

Hosted my girl friends 30th Birthday in Arch 3. Staff were helpful and welcoming and allowed us to decorate the room. The room has plenty of space and seating and you have you own music and set the lighting and it even has a ping pong table, which was fun. Great venue for a surprise as hidden away... just remember to get rid of the reserved for sign the staff put outside the entrance (big giveaway before the surprise). visited Topolski Gallery and Bar on 29 Apr 2017

I planned my proposal and engagement party with Bar Topolski who were absolutely superb. I enquired by email and corresponded as such for the large part as phone calls were very difficult to do secretly. Vicente was extremely patient and accommodating. I arranged for a choir to sing for when my partner and I walked in and the staff helped to organise every little detail. This included dropping off a digital piano the day before which they kindly set-up on the day, and then dismantled for me to pick up the day after. We were looked after all evening by the bar manager Edoardo who was absolutely wonderful. He made sure everything ran smoothly on the night and put me completely at ease about sorting everything out the day after. Nothing was too much hassle for him, he even took some pictures of the entire group. In all they made that night the most memorable night of my life (so far!) and I'm so grateful for everything they've done. Vicente, Edoardo and the other staff members who were no doubt working behind the scenes - Thank you!! visited Topolski Gallery and Bar on 22 Apr 2017

we were a little disappointed on this occasion. we had reserved a table but on arrival there were other people sat on it, who promptly moved, but we were left to clean up their empty glasses ourselves. our food was served in dribs and drabs, without cutlery which meant some of the party had to wait quite a while to start. the pizzas weren't as nice as we remembered from our last visit but the vegetarian board was lovely. we were then told at the end that it isn't possible to split the bill which was frustrating and baffling! good atmosphere considering it was a Tuesday night visited Topolski Gallery and Bar on 04 Apr 2017

While we had a great evening with friends, and the food and drinks were great, I found the staff extremely rude and unhelpful. Particularly the man on the door. I tried to make an online reservation before the evening through the website, and got no response. I called on the day to reserve a table for 10 people, and spoke with the manager who was very helpful. He said that while they didn't have a table for 10 people, he could give me a table for 8 which would fit 10 people. He said that there would only be chairs for 8 people provided, but that we could find the extra 2 chairs on the night, as the reservation was for dinner and drinks. When we arrived, the table had 6 chairs around it, so I asked the doorman (very politely) for the 2 extras as promised (he had shown us to our table), plus another 2 if possible as we would be a table of 10. He was immediately extremely aggressive and said 'this table doesn't come with any more chairs as was explicitly mentioned at the time of reservation, so - no: you absolutely cannot have any more chairs'. To which I pointed out that actually we had been promised 8 chairs, and 2 more which we could find during the night. I and a friend went around the venue, spoke politely to other guests on reserved tables and asked if their whole party was coming and if we could take the extra chairs - we managed to find our extra 4. The bouncer then came back to us - again extremely aggressively and telling us we couldn't have the chairs and he would be taking them away from us.... then the duty manager came over and said the same thing. It was all extremely uncomfortable and handled unbelievably badly, and really made a very bad start to the night. In the end they didn't even need the extra chairs for other tables.... so it really was a horrible way to treat some paying guests, and made everyone on the table feel very uncomfortable. One suggestion: as a restaurant with space for people to sit - why not buy just a couple of extra chairs to have as spare, just in case some people need one or 2 more???? It is crazy that you have no spares at all!! And please teach your doorman some manners. visited Topolski Gallery and Bar on 31 Mar 2017

The staff were very friendly, and the space has a lot of character. But Archway No 3 was far, far noisier than it had been when I made the booking, and as a consequence a lot of our guests stayed less long than we'd expected. A good suggestion would be to make Arch 2 the noisy space for those who want to dance, and keep Arch 3 at a lower level so that conversation is possible. visited Topolski Gallery and Bar on 03 Mar 2017

The booking service was excellent and I was called a number of times to confirm once I'd booked online which was reassuring as I'd booked for a large group. Staff were very helpful when we were a bit late and our area was a good size and sufficient for our large group. The food was tasty and fresh. The cocktails were inventive but most of them were far too sweet. Some of the staff behind the bar were unsure when it came to making the cocktails and took a long time, so I would assume they need a bit more training. Otherwise, staff were friendly and it was a good atmosphere. the music was great (we enjoyed the garage!) and there was a good space for a dance. All in all a good night! I'm sure people in my group will be back. visited Topolski Gallery and Bar on 04 Mar 2017

Nice venue, atmosphere and cocktail list. However, we booked a table for food as well, and two members of our party weren't able to order any. The staff closed the kitchen around 7:30pm, saying that they were too busy. As far as I'm aware, it wasn't reopened. This meant our colleagues went without food for the entire evening, while the rest of us ate (we shared what we had, but one person had different dietary requirements). A longer-than-usual wait would have been completely understandable. Closing the kitchen so early and without notice seems particularly poor service, and makes me less inclined to book again. visited Topolski Gallery and Bar on 12 Dec 2016

I arrange birthday drinks for my friends 30th bay. It was a great bar for social drinks and we all had a amazing time. We were booked in arch 2 which was big and airy which was perfect for our group. We were running late and wanted to ensure that we could still keep our booking but you don't seem to be able to get hold of anyone past 6pm. This caused some unnecessary stress and it would be good if you could call a bar in the evening. Lovisa visited Topolski Gallery and Bar on 10 Dec 2016

Pretty poor all round, had made a dinner booking for 8 people for 9.00 and changed it over the phone for 9.30, but when we arrived they had given our table away and by the time they sorted it out and we got our table half an hour later...the kitchen had closed. Table of 8 for dinner with no dinner and no table service a totally packed bar with only 2 people working behind the bar on a Friday night. Hopeless. Really cheesy 90s school disco music, really cheesy commuter crowd. Awful all round. visited Topolski Gallery and Bar on 25 Nov 2016

Great atmosphere and decor but food was extremely disappointing. The mother board was enough as a starter for two at a push and not worth £22 at all. The pizzas were also wafer thin. The four of us dining were left hungry but reluctant to spend anymore on food given the sizes of the portions. Would visit again but definitely only for drinks. visited Topolski Gallery and Bar on 20 Oct 2016

I booked an archway for a friend's birthday here and we could not have asked for a better venue. The booking was made very easy and it was easy to keep in contact. The vibe on the night was exactly what we were after and the staff were lovely. Natalie visited Topolski Gallery and Bar on 24 Sep 2016

I had my birthday party here and it was great! We had Arch 3 with about 25 people. It was a great space- and easy to get drinks. Service was very good! I would definitely recommend it highly. Karen visited Topolski Gallery and Bar on 09 Sep 2016

Really fun and great location. Got a room under arch 3 with a ping pong table. Loads of room and great food and drinks. Have had birthday here two years in a row now and had as much of a buzz on a wed as a Friday. Philippa visited Topolski Gallery and Bar on 21 Sep 2016

Booked for our work summer party, the staff were absolutely excellent throughout the whole process, and were on hand and attentive and flexible all evening. We booked arch three and had a ping pong tournament. It was really warm in arch three, but staff provided a much appreciated fan before our guests had even started to arrive. finella_louise visited Topolski Gallery and Bar on 21 Jul 2016

Chose it for my birthday last year, and came back this year! As well the great vibe, the private arch doesn't have a minimum spend, and does have ping pong! Kathryn visited Topolski Gallery and Bar on 26 Feb 2016

Fab venue. We had a work do in Arch 3 which was just off the bar. What a cool space. We had a ping-pong table and a Grand piano. Funky, but also provatre space so we could talk. Delicious pizzas and sharing platters helped us through the booze! The bar was busy but service was pretty snappy. Never had to wait more than a few minutes! Why have we never been before! A gem of a bar!! I'd highly recommend Bar Topolski

Had a fantastic works reunion (34 guests) on Friday 18th December in Arch 3 at Topolski. Arch 3 is a separate room, off the main drinking area, with a table tennis table, and plenty of space. Would thoroughly recommend it. Despite the venue being busy, it never took long to get served at the bar. The music was loud in the main area, but in Arch 3, we were able to turn it down so we could hear each other properly. Really lovely evening. Would definitely book again, and recommend to others. vsoruth visited Topolski Gallery and Bar on 18 Dec 2015

Fantastic evening, I reserved an area for my birthday and the staff were amazing. Great atmosphere, music not too loud, but enough to create a good atmosphere. Brilliant evening and would definitely return here! Close to the station too - bonus!

Great venue for our team outing. Cool, different bar with a great little private function area within the arches. Food was good and the cocktails were great. Only one qualm - the staff seemed quite put out by us staying a bit later than last orders, and as we had spent a lot of money that night, I would have thought they would have been slightly more accommodating. Other than that, a good night had by all. Thank you.

So far I have only been to Topolski in the evening, as I work during the day on the other side of London, but its location close to Waterloo makes it a great place to meet up with my partner before our trip home. The staff are always welcoming, and the 2-4-1 offers very good. The bar snacks are good value - the meat and cheese plate for 2 keeps our glasses of wine good company.

What an amazing venue, with helpful staff. Perfect for my meeting and great cocktails for follow. I had a gathering for 20 people and nothing was too much trouble. Will be back for sure. thanks

I had a table reserved for 2 at 19:45 on Friday night. When I arrived (exactly on time) I went to the bar and asked where the table was. The bar man was extremely rude and stand offish and after huffing and puffing went to ask a colleague about the table. He then came back and said he couldn't help me, he was too busy and that I should find the table myself. I then asked him what non-alcoholic drinks you served and he looked positively disgusted. I then ordered a soda water, which he served in a very rude way, slamming the change into my hand. I was unable to find the reserved table and ended up standing in a corner.
