Just round the corner from Oxford Circus and close to Regent Street lies this cool and quirky drinking spot; The Aviary Bar. In their opulent red booths and at their grotto-inspired venue you will be impressed by the extensive selection of cocktails, beers, spirits, wines and champagnes.

This is a great bar for those wanting something a little different in London, as well as a buzzing social night to catch up with friends. Take a date to be wowed by the unique decor or go for after work drinks – a perfect excuse to avoid the rush hour. It's super close to the West End, making The Aviary a perfect destination for pre-theatre drinks.

Their late license stretches the evening long into the night, and you can enjoy the fun-time party atmosphere right up to 4am throughout the week. Those wanting to celebrate a special occasion in the West End need look no further. The venue can accommodate for up to 110 guests and adopts a flexible approach to meeting the demands of each and every function. DJs tailor their playlist to your requirements, karaoke can be provided and you can use their plasma TVs too.

My daughter's 18th at the Aviary was stellar. Bar staff, DJ, bouncers and food were all exceptional. My daughter and her friends reckoned it was the best party EVER! I can't thank them all enough. visited The Aviary Bar on 30 Jun 2017

Eklavya's birthday party took place at the Aviary Bar on Thursday 29 June. It was a fantastic venue and Tony and his staff took very good care of us and the evening went off very well. We had around 110 guests and the general consensus was that it was one of the best events and venues that the guests had been to. Tony and his staff made us feel completely at home and took care of everything leaving us to enjoy the evening without any worries. Fantastic venue and highly recommended! Five star rating highly deserved. visited The Aviary Bar on 29 Jun 2017

The Staff were attentative, friendly and provided a good service - so hats off to them! The DJ was amazing and played the music we requested which everyone enjoyed. However it was a hot day and the AC units looked dated, dirty and were not blowing out enough air. The room was horrible and stuffy even before the guests had arrived which made it uncomfortable for me our guests. kasha visited The Aviary Bar on 17 Jun 2017

Terrible. Told had table but did not. Door man incredibly rude about it. Shocked with the service. Do not risk going there.

I booked an area in the upstairs bar last Saturday. The bar was very unique and made us feel welcome. The staff very friendly and even let us play our own music. Great place for a private party. Natasha visited The Aviary Bar on 23 Jul 2016

I had my 30th birthday party here and had a great night. The venue is very quirky and really gives a unique feel to the night. The fact that it's a private space is also a real plus - you really can organise the night to your own needs. Organising the event through Robyn was easy and Toni and the staff were really welcoming and friendly and extremely helpful in making the evening go smoothly. I would definitely recommend organising a party here!

I knew as soon as i viewed the Aviary Bar that i was going to have my 30th birthday party here! The venue has an amazing atmosphere and the decor really gives it a unique feel to anywhere else in London. Robyn the events coordinator went above and beyond, helping with everything from last minute food orders to catering to specific needs of the night. On the night, Toni the GM was exceptional. Him and his staff made myself and my guests completely comfortable and knew exactly what was going to work on the night. These guys really know how to throw a party. If you are looking for a party venue, look no further. Thanks for an amazing night guys!. mattmcclure visited The Aviary Bar on 18 Jun 2016

Is this place still open? It looks closed to me. Very annoying that the site is not up to date. Had arranged to meet someone there, which was quite difficult. JT

Great for friday/saturday night cocktails, maybe before heading off to one of the many clubs nearby. The drinks list is varied and the decor is brilliant and quirky, with a buzzing atmosphere

An unusual venue tucked away behind Oxford Circus. I went with a friend one Friday night for cocktails and we seemed to be the only customers in the bar area on the ground floor- which was perfect for catching up whilst listening to power ballads and drinking an extremely large Black Russian. There is a small aquarium behind the bar and the seating area is designed like a grotto.

Booked for 8pm, we arrived at the venue at 7.45pm. The staff had no recollection of our booking, and denied that we had done so, claiming they were fully booked. A waiter went away to check for us, and ten minutes later still hadn't reappeared. Asked the barman, who was incredibly unhelpful and had no concern. Left without ordering, and went to London Cocktail Club on Goodge Street, which was amazing.

Decor here is amazing. Definitely the most bizarre London bar i've been to. There's a really long drinks list as well!

not what you expect at all - the features of this bar make it something that sticks out from the rest of the central london places. The restaurant is great for a cosy date - i love it!
