Fluid Review

Book a table at Fluid

Fluid has now been for a lot more years than many venues last in London and business is booming. The influence is distinctly Japanese with oriental script colouring the walls, a glowing Sapporo drinks dispenser in a corner and copies of Japanese magazines bedecking the window cills. Sushi is served during the week and prices are extremely reasonable, while the drinks range is again distinctly Japanese.

A tight, winding staircase leads to the dark demonous depths, which have just undergone a major refurb adding some intimate seating and a hugely dramatic back lit view of Tokyo. Fluid is a friendly bar with a real laid-back ambience, which set the trends in this now buzzing part of town and continues to lead the way.

“Came to farringdon to go to Fabric and we found Fluid just by surprise after dinner. The cocktails were REALLY good, cant vouch for the food because we'd already eaten but the DJs were EXCELLENT...infact they were so good we didn't even go to Fabric!! So thats saying something!! Upstairs bar was more funk and disco, but really good deep house in the basement and the sound is really good down there! (dj was FITTT too which always helps LOL) Lots of smiley people and I liked the bar manager. Northern guy, very smiley and accomodating, they all seemed to be having lots of fun behind the bar too and thats really important in my book. Really recommend it actually. Best cocktail...try one of their Mortal Kombats with lychee liquor...was yum! :)”

“Nice bar. Upstairs is lively, the downstairs bar is available for exclusive hire. small and not very spacious but fit for about 70 people. Although the capacity is said to be 100 people, for comfort and space less would be advisable. Bar staff can be friendly and accommodating, until they actually have to do other work like cleaning, they are not afraid to speak their mind even if you are the paying customer. Manager very nice and can be reasonable but make sure you know exactly what you are paying for when you put down your deposit to hire the downstairs bar i.e security, cloakroom,equipment e.t.c as this isn't always made clear and you may not receive any of these services. All in all, it is cosy with Japanese themed walls all around, drinks are fairly reasonable and it is a good bar to go to before heading off to another club later on.”

“Fluid is an unusual bar. Fairly pricey after the 2-for-1s finish. Sushi is like an afterthought; it’s pretty good, but I wouldn’t vouch for the hygiene standards. Funny smell downstairs. Otherwise, it’s OK. Some days they open up all the doors and windows and it becomes a very different bar. Nice.”

“Price Japanese-theme sushi bar, encapsulating London’s pretension in a nutshell. The staff’s appearance is of models with the day off, and the attitude that comes to boot with this can be unappealing. They do, however, possibly hold the best encouraging tip-tray look in the whole of the capital. Fluid does, though, have some saving graces. The clientele aren’t as poncy as you might perhaps expect, the beer vending machine is a useful novelty and, as always, the retro video games give a sense of inherent cool”

With its bolshi streetwise design, fluid represents the fashionable bar-led end of the sushi spectrum. References to Japanese culture are integrated into the contemporary design, with futuristic graphics complimenting the retro tabletop arcade games, low-level spaces and sumptuous cocktails with a eastern twist.
