Absolutely loved this place! The music, the decor, the ambience and in particular the cocktails! Fabulous service by Eric, not only for great showmanship, see photo, but his knowledge and great customer service!

This place has a tacky 70's lounge vibe which is quite fun. The bar man was really helpful and really knew his stuff when it came to helping us choose our drinks and while it was quiet it was a good atmosphere. It was a completely other world however when it became busy and the music had started.My party stayed... More

Found this place on the off chance... The only two things it had going for it, was the unique decor and the DJ. Our waiter was absolutely terrible - rude and had too much sass... rolling his eyes every two seconds. Recommendation - train your staff on customer service. Never again.

Average bar in Notting Hill. Stays open a bit later than some of the other places in the area. Gets really crowded and quite hot in there but the crowd seems nice enough. Bar service is good

After spending a good few hours sat at the bar of trailer happiness, I can safely say it's an amazing bar with great drinks and even better staff, ask for jon to make you a long Island ice tea it's on point

I'm sure this bar would of been lovely as had heard great things from the friends we were visiting with. Me and my two friends were allowed in but Charles (the doorman) stopped my boyfriend on entry. He isn't dressed as a doorman and my boyfriend had no idea who this guy was. My boyfriend called me back outside where... More

My boyfriend and I went to try this place out on a recommendation from the awesome bar Portobello Star nearby. The manager was so lovely to us and bought us our first round of cocktails which were delicious, as were our second. I don't think I could've stomached any more than that as they were delicious but extremely sweet! I... 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.
