Came here on a Tuesday and I'd say we got here just on time as this place gets busy during happy hour(s). Actually it was too busy when considering the intimacy of the venue and the seating limitations. Funky venue, pretty decent happy hour prices and cocktail menu. Maybe think about turning music volume down a bit. Place has potential... More

One of the employees, a bouncer, start yelling and shouting at me for using the "wrong door" (no sign or information of that door as being inaccessible) to go inside the bar. My reaction was simply an expression of discontent, mostly because of the level of rudeness and inappropriate aggressive response to an unequivocal behaviour. When I then start walking... More

Friday night was a bit too busy, but bar staff are friendly and happy hour drinks well priced. Would go again, hopefully upstairs bar will be open

Hi Raj, Thanks for the write up and we are glad you enjoyed yourself. You'll find our Fitzrovia and Camden Town venues are bigger, if you're looking for more space...although we're always pretty bust on a Friday I'm afraid, it's just a hazard of being fab! We hope to see you again soon. Best, Anna More

I privately hired the function room in the basement of the Kings Cross venue for my 30th birthday celebrations on a Saturday night. From the outset everyone was super helpful. I was told I could bring my own food/decorations and the only condition was a minimum spend of £1000 behind the bar which was easy with around 50 guests. The... More

decor cute, however had way too many people in the premises, we reserved a table and it was tiny not enough room for us to stand never mind sit. Drink prices average for Camden,however we left after 30mins and headed else where.

Hi Nat, Sorry you had a disappointing experience! Unfortunately Mornington Crescent is one of our smallest venues, do give the reservations number a call for any future bookings and we can recommend you a larger venue. Also please do let the bar staff know on the day if you have any issues with your reservation and they'll be happy to... More

Went here for the NYE bottomless party. Small discrepancies between drinks offered on the event description and what was actually in stock. Seating area was cramped and grimy, we found a few old cans squashed into the school desks. Towards the end, music was turned up so loud that the sound began to jar heavily.

Simmons is possibly the easiest venue to choose for random fun with friends or pre-drinks. The Soho branch is better designed than the "mini" bar near King's Cross; but they still assign smaller tables than the desirable capacity, especially for 10+ groups. Having said that, "happy hour" was amazing with £2.5 for beer bottles and simple gin&tonic, from 3pm. Service... More

Popped in for a happy hour cocktail prior to a gig at the old St Pancras Church. Cocktails were really good, generous measures of spirit and true to taste. Nice unusual shot selection and again very nice. The big let down was hearing the conversation the 2 bar guys were having about their street fighting skills while preparing my drinks.... More
