6/2015 • Kaverit
I tried to book a table for my birthday the manager was so rude even when trying to book!! After I didn't even receive a confirmation or any information for my booking. I arrived to be told the area I booked was booked for someone else and I couldn't have my money back!!?? DO NOT BOOK OR ATTEND!! Other bars in angel are so helpful.

BIGGEST SCAM OF A VENUE!!! AVOID AT ALL COSTS!!!
5/2015 • Liikematka
I have attached email correspondence with the venue as evidence. Make sure you read them. I booked the venue for my 25th birthday in March. I paid a £300 deposit and was told verbally that "if I reach a £1500 bar spend I would be refunded the deposit". After booking the venue I was then emailed 10 terms and conditions which I was only informed of after paying my deposit. Clause 2 in the terms and conditions states deposit fee is refundable. I had my birthday party and the bar made £1569. I tried to get my deposit on the night I was told to "contact the owner of the venue" the owner is called BAL thats his number (07436543943). Couple days after the birthday party I received an email giving me a breakdown of the bar spend and for some reason the deposit also known as the venue hire fee was deducted from the bar spend on the night making the total bar spend come to £1296. This didn't make sense to me because I didn't understand why the deposit was deducted from the bar spend. So I called BAL to challenge the email and was told by BAL to "speak to Nick" even though the email was sent from BAL email address. BAL quickly tried to mention that "the bar spend is net amount and not the gross amount". I challenged him saying that his "net and gross amount point is null and void as it wasnt mentioned to me before so I will not be accepting that." I tried to get in contact with Nick and was unsuccessful i.e phone ringing out and no calls or text messages returned. So as my next course of action I went to the venue to sort it out. Whilst at the venue I asked the bar manager to call BAL as he wasn't answering my calls. The bar manager complied, after the bar manager informed BAL I was there in person and repeatedly telling BAL I was in front of him he gave me the phone reluctantly to speak to BAL. BAL apologised for missing my calls but I wasn't interested in that I just wanted my deposit back. I informed BAL he is the owner of the venue so he should be able to sort out the issue. His response was its Nick issue to deal with so he has no involvement. I asked him for Nick number which he responded he can't give me as its his personal number. So I said you should be able to sort it out as your the owner and the email came from your email address so for all I know how do I know there even is a Nick. I again asked for my deposit back and he response it don't work like that and he is being polite. In the end I didn't get the deposit back and the issue still hasn't been resolved and I don't see what effort BAL is making to resolve it.

A total let down!!
I organised having pre-christmas drinks here with my work colleagues, was in contact with the manager with regards to the booking and mentioned my concerns with some of the negative comments but was reassured so went ahead and booked. We all arrived at the bar and it was a tiny 'sweat box'. Photos are soo deceiving as it looks nothing like the actual bar. We were not happy at all and tried to get our deposit back which the manager previously told us wouldn't be a problem, only to end up arguing with the staff and the manager nowhere to be seen nor accepting my phone calls. Wouldn't even give one star but have to, to be able to submit this. Be warned!

Dodgy and terrible never ever go here
2/2015 • Kaverit
Hired the bar for a birthday event . Unprofessional bar staff. Paid a £250 deposit to hire the whole venue. Spent over £800 at the bar which means I get all my deposit money. I paid £200 cash for my deposit and £50 over the phone. When the night was over I had asked for my deposit money to be given back . The bar staff told me to call the manager and get my money back of him been calling everyday for a week and keep being told the same thing I will get the manager to call you back never ever have I been given a call back it's been 6 weeks now each time they know it's me they hang up . When I email they ignore aswell DODGY DODGY DOdGY

Do not come here!
8/2014
We booked our engagement party here last aug and paid a deposit to secure the downstairs area. We made lots of contact the manager about our preordered drinks and food and even spoke to him the day before. When we arrived we were told they had double booked the area and we had to leave or squeeze into the very small upstairs area. They clearly knew they had double booked but didn't seem to care. I ended up in tears and ruined what was meant to be an amazing celebration. Do not trust these guys or come here

The place has gone to the dogs
1/2015 • Pariskunnat
I went with three friends last Saturday, my first visit for a few years, and to say the place has gone downhill is an understatement. First the barman used Gordon's gin in a friend's Hendricks Fruit Cup (the clue is in the title) despite it sitting on the shelf behind him and then we were 'invited' to go downstairs. The bar was closed, it was freezing cold, the chairs were on the tables and there was no DJ on a Saturday night. When the rude people we'd come across upstairs starting singing 'Happy Birthday' to their friend, we realised we'd been shoved downstairs to keep their twelve-person 'party' private. In fact, when we finished some of the worst cocktails we'd ever tasted (how hard is it to get a mojito or a caipirinha right?) and went upstairs to leave, we realised the stairs had been blocked off. So incredibly rude and terrible compared to what it used to be like. It needs an update to its decor and barmen who know what they're doing if its going to start attracting any kind of crowd again, let alone the right crowd. Avoid it like the plague until that happens.
