“Great live music”
Reviewed 28 April 2012

Really lovely little place to chill before moving on to Calema, etc
Great live music- you would undoubtedly have to pay through the nose to hear live music of this calibre in any London venue; at Blu Bar it is completely FREE!!
Not the best of places for non-smokers; your lungs will get a thrashing from all the cig smoke in here. Gets quite packed, but it has a nice atmosphere- both locals and tourists.
I don't drink alcohol so can't comment on the drinks.

“Very Small with fantastic atmosphere”
Reviewed 2 March 2012

We went here for a drink one evening and there was live music. The singer was great and one of the bar staff sang with him as well as one of the customers.
Cocktails weren't bad either.

“when happy hour is not happy hour due to the rude staff !!”
Reviewed 12 February 2012

We visit cape verde 3 times per year and we'v visited blu bar on previous occassions and had enjoyable experiences, however on this sunday eve visit we arrived at 8 45 happy hour being till 9 30, we were ignored i must add it was not busy ,after we then approach the bar and had to ask for a menu twice asthe first time he looked straight through us as though we were invisable and carried on talking to his female friend who was sitting at the bar, on return to bar with our order, we were then told it was not "happy hour" we pointed out on sunday it ran till 9 30 as stated on menu and signage on window , he turned his back on us ignoring us completely.At the speed of new bars opening up they are going to have to be careful of lost custom.
