My boyfriend and I came to TheBloomsbury Club for drinks for his birthday. The setting is beautiful with the fairy lights and the live music was an absolute treat. The staff were friendly, accommodating and very knowledgable about their delicious cocktails! Will definitely recommend.

As hotel guests we never expected there to be such a fantastic bar at The Bloomsbury. Very popular spot, so it may be smart to reserve a table, at least if you want an outside seating. Great cocktails and wonderful staff.

Old fashioned, wood-paneled, low noise level, very posh and sweet place for a cocktail or glass of wine. Excellent service and reasonable prices plus some free nibbles. We were well taken care of.

Description
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.
