We went to this beautiful building for a 3 course meal and we were not disappointed. From the moment we arrived all the staff were extremely helpful and friendly and made sure we found where we needed to be. We were a little early for our reservation so we ducked into the Bloomsbury Club for a pre dinner cocktail. There... More

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.

Tucked away 2 blocks from the Dominion Theater, Bloombury Club & Restaurant was a wonderful find. I had dinner in their inviting, warmly lit bar (first noticed their beautifully lit outdoor terrace, but it was reserved for special event) The starter of asparagus with truffle oil was delicious, as were the grilled scallops with chantrelles & spinach. With 10-12 couples... More

If you are looking for somewhere to sit outside, this is good as it is tucked away at the side of the hotel (no view to write home about) and it is quite. We had dinner here with friends on a warm evening and were able to sit outside. The food was very good and the service we had was... More

A friend joined me for drinks and a bite to eat the bar last Friday. We were given a table on the terrace area for the first two hours then moved inside for the rest of the evening. On offer is an interesting menu of cocktails, spirits, beer, wine and a good choice of individual plates. The atmosphere veers on... More

Dear LucyCarvalho, What a joy to read your review! Thank you for sharing your experience!

The bar is very well presented and the staff are lovely. Our waitress Martina made sure everything was perfect and we had a great evening. The bar has a great cocktail menu and the prices were very reasonable. I'd recommend the bar for a girls catch-up or a date night.

This place used to serve food I think but it's now a 1920s speakeasy downstairs and a restaurant upstairs (Dalloway Terrace) The bar was great, a really beautiful space and an amazing cocktail list! The service was very friendly too (Martina knew all about the cocktails from that period) and the ambience was fantastic all around. I believe they will... More

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.
