What a great place for a party! We had our son's 21st there and everyone enjoyed it enormously. The staff were helpful and good, and the venue perfect for our numbers (just under 60). I would thoroughly recommend it. Visited The Aviary Bar on 2018-01-05

I’m not really sure what has been going on but I am so angry and feel completely let down. I paid my deposit for a party on Saturday and have been trying to get hold of someone constantly to sort out arrangements as I have had no correspondence from anyone at the aviary bar. I have called a number of times and left messages and no one has got back to me. I then received a call from Alan 2 days before the party was to go ahead seeing if everything was set. I could not believe I received a call 2 days before the party was supposed to be going ahead with absolutely no details what to ever. The party obviously could not ahead and was therefore cancelled. Alan told me that head office will give me a call on Friday and we can try and sort it out and he assured me that this would happen and gave me his personal number in case they don’t call. They didn’t call. I called Alan back and he said “oh I thought they called you I will get on to them.” I have still not received a call. I want to speak with someone in regards to getting my deposit back. If you cannot accommodate parties which is clearly the case as Alan has said to me you’ve had a real problem with staff at the moment and I should be able to speak to someone to arrange things to get the invites out in enough time and to make arrangements I should not of been called back 2 days before the party.

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 2017-06-30

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 2017-06-29

Great bar Great service Only complaint about basement was too hot And air conditioner wasn't work Visited The Aviary Bar on 2017-06-24

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. Visited The Aviary Bar on 2017-06-17

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. Visited The Aviary Bar on 2016-07-23

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!. Visited The Aviary Bar on 2016-06-18

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!
