Booked the electric cinema as a surprise for my friend's birthday. It turned out to be the highlight of our weekend. The armchairs were so comfortable and the bottle of wine between us from the bar made it all the more relaxing - the only time I have been to a cinema where no-one has walked out at the end... More

Perfect place to relax and watch a movie in complete comfort. Food isn't anything special but the atmosphere is great.

I took a girl on a date here on valentines and it was spot on. We turned up pretty early, there's a cool bar linked with the cinema next door to have food/drinks if you've got some time to kill. The sofas at the back are perfect, comfy, loads of room, easily accessible to get to the bar to grab... More

A unique venue compared to the usual cinema chains. We booked armchairs which were comfortable. The price is comparable with central London just be sure to arrive early as there can be quite a queue for refreshments!

Yummy pasta, even yummier wine! Really nice vibes in the cinema itself, the best thing has to be the abiltiy to go the cinema, drink wine and sit on a couch!

Didn't have the food or drinks but had a wonderful experience at Electric Cinema! Sat in one of the front beds and found it to be extremely comfortable. Cashmere blankets were a great touch!

Enjoyed the great and somewhat eclectic atmosphere at lunch time. Very busy restaurant with friendly and efficient service by professional team who had flavour and individuality. My pasta with ragout was unfortunately tasteless which was a real shame.

Great quirky little cinema with a bar! What more could you want?! Sat in row D near the centre. Went for a drink in their diner next door and accessed the cinema through the door round the back drinks in hand! Bought a bottle of wine inside- expensive at £23 for house but who cares! Seats are so comfy, little... More

Staying in Notting Hill

Neighbourhood Profile
Notting Hill
As West London's friskiest corner, Notting Hill more than manages to retain plenty of the same appeal that's brought the affluent area so much worldwide attention. In this attractive cobblestoned neighbourhood, a delectable variety of eateries, independent shops, galleries and street vendors offer a delightful window into how to live the good life in London, with each presenting visitors with an experience that's a little more idiosyncratic and endearing than the last. Travelers looking to forage for antiques should be sure to visit the Portobello Road Market on Saturdays, the largest antiques market in the United Kingdom.
