My boyfriend and I came here for some drinks after dinner to celebrate our anniversary. We had a really enjoyable time here, great live music, good variety and quality of drinks, atmosphere was lovely, the staff were very friendly and helpful and overall it was a very lovely spot to celebrate. Definitely would recommend and come back again.

I had a sea bass with mashed peas and chips. My fish was tasteless. Nobody asked us how our main courses. When they were... More

Following Les Miserables at the Queens Theatre we had booked a late night table at the Bloomsbury Club on Tuesday night, it was a great way to round off the evening., we treated ourselves to Cocktails and the Ploughmans Board as a late night snack! We sat inside, which looked like being outside in an Italian Garden, the fairy lights... More

I had cocktails at The Bloomsbury Club Bar and really enjoyed my visit. Service was great as was the atmosphere. There are two very different areas to the bar, one feels almost as though you're on a Tuscan veranda even though it is inside. The area has a very chilled atmosphere and is quiet which is perfect if you're catching... More

A wide range of cocktails on offer, they were even willing to make us a special one off menu. It is a really stylish cosy bar - it's busy because it has such a good reputation

Great prices lovely staff and fabulous entertainment, a very chilled jazz duo with a great female singer. Considering how high the bar had already been set no mean achievement... More

We went to this beautiful building for a 3 course meal and we were not disappointed.

the description of 30s decor intrigued me so I went and was not disappointed. Elegantly furnished in green and cozy, good selections of liquids, I had a perfectly chilled Pinot, served with some nibbles. Friendly staff that engages in conversation.

Description
THE BLOOMSBURY CLUB BAR Set in the heart of literary Bloomsbury, The Bloomsbury Club Bar takes inspiration from the lives of the famously hedonistic Bloomsbury Set. Taking influence from the 1920's and 1930's, The Bloomsbury Club Bar menu celebrates the golden age of cocktails with a strong, seductive mix of forgotten classics and innovative new creations inspired by the Bloomsbury Set's infamous members, set against a backdrop of luxurious decadence. The bar is split into two areas, the walls in the main bar area are adorned with artwork and books synonymous with the Bloomsbury Set, with a subtle subtly English colonial influence. The secluded, heated outside bar resembles a bohemian space with booths lining the exposed brickwork and a canvas of fairy lights covering the ceiling.
