Revolution Review

Book a table at Revolution

Revolution is featured in these Guides:

The second instalment from the Revolution crew in London, this bar offers the typical extensive selection of vodkas and fine cocktails. Soft leather furnishings, mirrors and steal compliment the cool tunes played live every night by the in house DJ, with a late license in the pipe line this place will soon be kicking to the early hours.

Revolution are very proud of their vodka selection with 30 Premium vodkas and an additional 34 house flavours. Whilst the cocktails are great tasting, in busier times you may find your more adventurous requests refused.

Comfortably busy during the week queues are not uncommon on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. There is a 21yr old policy on the door and football tops/caps may bar entry.

Of particular note is the fact that Revolution is predominantly patronised by local residents who have taken the civilised steps of popping home for shower and a fresh set of clothes before venturing out.

“It's now our regular venue every Fri as Obzee is the resident dj and we used to follow this guy around a few yrs back. If you like good house and electro grooves played to perfection with an EDGE, go to Revolution... There is a top vibe in there once it gets going from 10pm onwards. Good bar team..polite and smile a lot...got an 89 vibe!”

“re: the critical review below I have since received a full apology and redress from Revolution, and the way the management handled it so swiftly has convinced me that last Saturday was an unfortunate one-off, caused by a series of misunderstandings. Rare to get such a response - so now I''m left recommending Revolution but encouraging you to get there early!”

“My friend and I held our joint 30th birthday party at Revolution and I am absolutely livid about what happened. We were told that with a guest list, 25 people could get in if they came later than 9.30pm. We spent a lot of time organising the list and getting people to come on time, only for the bouncers and the other manager to tell us that everyone had to queue after 8.30! What was the point of the guest list?! At least ten of my friends stood outside for more than half hour, then left. I wasted most of my evening arguing in the rain with the bouncers trying to explain to them what I had been assured would happen. That is unacceptable, if they have a door policy like that they should have told us when we came to talk to them. We thought we were coming to a sophisticated, well-organised place! Not only that, but the minute the lights came on the bouncers and the other manager were the first ones to come up and grab the birthday cakes from the table. While the bar staff were very helpful, I cannot forgive that kind of hypocritical behaviour. They have since apologised and tried to explain themselves, but I was very disappointed. ”

“A very upmarket bar, quiet small but seems alrite to start the nite off in. I went with about 5 mates bought a round of 6 bottles of "Sol" lager cost me over £25 quid, so we stuck to the vodka shots. The upside was there is alot of talent in there and the crowd seem a bit older and more mature.”

“Great cocktails in here, and generally pretty good tunes from the DJ. However, the typically pretentious Clapham crowd lends nothing to the atmosphere, which is non-existent. Good place to go for the cocktail pitchers, but for a fun night drink your cocktails and move on!!”

“I have to say that if you looking for a a wicked bar with the best cocktails in South London, look no more. The answer is Revolution Bar. After going there a couple of weeks ago for the first time, I found myself completly hooked. The cocktails were among the best I've ever tryed, the decor is really classy and confortable and the music was absolutely fantastic for a wednesday. Just need to say that the dj kept me dancin' till close and it was just a wednesday! Anyway, now you know the best place to go in Clapham. Ivana & Sarah”
