Bedroom Bar Review

On first impressions the Bedroom Bar appears to either be very small, closed or both. This is due to the simple fact that all you see is a door. But luckily enough the Bedroom Bar has a good enough reputation and oozes enough individuality to survive as one of Hoxtons gems.

The decor follows a formula of battered couches, one large open space with one long bar, tin buckets hanging off the ceiling and yes, true to its name it does in fact have a bed tucked away in the top left hand corner. But for some reason the bed does not seem to be the only appeal of the place. It is in the atmosphere and laid back attitude of the clientele where the beauty truly lies.

The Bedroom Bar kicks off on the weekend when you will find a bunch of mixed, smiley but no attitude type people. Everyone is there to strut their funky stuff to the music of the DJ and to have one top weekend night out. Although space is a bit limited due to its popularity so be prepared for a crowd.

The late license allows an extra place to go after you've finished up at the stream of other Hoxton chic bars. But be warned, late in the evening the bed becomes a haven for those who simply can't stand up any more or for those ever annoying canoodling couples. But it can be fun trying to take over the whole space. A small entrance fee of £3 is charged after 10:30 on Fridays and Saturdays. Well recommended. more

“The door staff here are beyond rude & quite frankly ridiculous. Its worth avoiding Bedroom Bar for that reason alone, at least until they are replaced. I hired an area at Bedroom Bar Saturday for my birthday. The bar was only 2/3 full yet two of my male friends were refused entry because it was "too cock heavy inside" - their words. I went down to enquire if there was a way to resolve the issue, at which point, what was shaping up to be an enjoyable night was essentially ruined by the unessessary, disgusting behaviour of the vile door man, who in front of a mass of witnesses stopped me mid sentence before I'd even asked the question & unleashed an amazingly aggressive flurry of abuse, telling me "he doesn't need to fcking explain himself to anyone, he doesn't have time to fck about, the world doesn’t fcking revolve around me just because im a little blonde & to fck off!." Charming. Considering this man can't string two coherent sentences together without a tirade of swear words & ranting at the top of his voice I hardly think he should be in a 'client facing position.' His behaviour was totally unecessary, purposely trying to intimidate & bully people for no reason. Yet another case of a sad little man on a power trip, thinking he has the right to speak to people as he pleases because he guards a doorway for a living. Someone should get him a clip board and a headset - he'd be in his ellement! It really was quite pathetic ultimately resulted in me taking my entire party of 30 people to a much better bar round the corner. It's a shame as on most other accounts it's actually a good little venue. The bar staff are friendly, the drinks are reasonable and the music's great. It's just unfortunate that management have put such a moron on the front door, in such a vital role as the first point of contact for paying customers. Especially in an East London bar where the pretentious attitudes of the west end aren't supposed to be found.”

“The bouncers in the place were proper goons. They made sure to spoil the mood before letting us in, and then were totally unnecessarily aggressive to some of the (perfectly reasonable) punters just enjoying themselves inside. Under-endowed monkeys on a friday night power-trip. Never coming back here again in my life.”

“People this place rocks! I celebrated my birthday in Shoreditch over the weekend. We ended up in this place and i tell you it was one of the best nights i have had EVER period. People were all cool , no hassle no bad boys looking for a fight just chilled nice people looking to make friends and have a laugh. drinks were cheapish BUT the music was the best. I have never heard Garage mixes with a sax before. it was too good! 10/10 Wicked! ”

“I didn't even get in this place due to a lippy bouncer who took a dislike to me for no particular reason and started insulting me. We were well dressed and we weren't drunk. When I told the bouncer he needed to learn some manners he looked like he was going to explode. I can only assume his ego was threatened by the fact I was much bigger and stronger than him and he thought he would try and embarass me very unsuccessfully! Anyhow I won't be attempting to get in there again when there are hundreds of other clubs to choose from.”

“Without a doubt the best Saturday night in Shoreditch The resident DJ Younglee never fails to blow me away and judging by the dancing folk all around everyone else feels the same... no wondered its a packed house every saturday (they even have a live sax player who comes on later in the evening). If you like good music that isn't your bog standard 'funky house' or 'dirty electro' this is the place for you....... can't wait to return.”

“This bar never dies due to the mind blowing music and the amazing DJ plus sax player. The two together are explosive. For £3 it's a bargain if ever I saw one :)”

“I went up to this bar last night having read the excellent reviews and getting a bit fed up with Islington. Having read the reviews that you have to pay after 11pm, we headed up there about 10.15 and was told there was a £5 cover charge from 10pm so be careful. If you don't want to pay to get in make sure you get there before 10pm. The venue is extremely small. I didn't think a great deal of it to be honest, perhaps I should try a saturday night when the sax man is playing? Being a smoker you have to go outside but you are not allowed to take drinks outside although you can easily get round this if you use your head and make a swifty past the "garden police" haha.”

“A large group of us went there for a friend's birthday last night. We had reserved a table area and we all got there fairly early. We had a drink or two - they have a nice smoking area out the back, although you can't take drinks out there. The overall atmosphere was nice, tunes were good - however, we had a problem with loads & loads of our half to two-third full drinks being cleared away repeatedly by the over-zealous glass collector. After we noticed this had happened a few times myself & the guy whose birthday it was went to speak to the manager about it. The manager was at best dismissive, pretty rude & heavily implied that we were just trying to scam free drinks - extremely insulting considering that as a group we must have already spent a few hundred pounds - as a result we all decided against buying anymore drinks & enjoyed the rest of the night dancing drink-free. On the plus side - today is the first Sunday for a long time waking up hangover free!!”

“This bar is superb but do believe that it is solely down to the responsibility of two of the most talented people I know...Young Lee an Jake Tha Sax (Furioustyles) - residents every fri and sat night, taking bar-goers through a funk filled infusion of anything from old skool classics, jazz, funk, house & broken beats with live instrumentation...perfect whatever the occasion! ”

“This is one of thoes bars that you wish only a limited amount of people know about( just wish it was larger in space capacity)....the music, the atmosphere, the bed(when your feet can't take it anymore) the Dj and most of all the Killer Sax player ( you just want to melt ) all rolled into one makes a perfect night out. Had a really good night, don't want to reccommend it as I don't want to get turned away from the door for it being too packed!!!”

“wicked venue...i found the comment about music on fridays and saturdays being pop a bit funny....i heard, masters at work, new orleans funk, vikter duplaix and some fine vocal soulful broken beat. also there is a live sax player after 11.30 on saturdays who is very good”

“I'm at pains to recommend this place simply cos I don't want everyone finding out about it! Never had a bad night here. Staff: friendly. Lighting: perfect. Clientle: funky, hip, unpretentious and down right sexy. However the main reason this gets the thumbs up is cos the music is just right.”

Russ, [ Unknown ] (13 years 10 months 9 days ago)

“I've got mixed feelings about this place. There's not a huge amount of seating, instead being designed rather like a dancefloor with the bar along one side and seats along the other, and the bed in one corner struck me as rather gimmicky. It was strangely quiet on the Thursday night that we visited -- especially strange given that they do a good happy hour until 9 O'Clock and the resident DJ was spinning some excellent New York house grooves. Also good is the lighting: not too dark, not too bright; nice colour balance. For a dancefloor-dominated place, it's aesthetically nice. The DJ informed me that on Fridays and Saturdays the music policy is apparently pop, so take your earplugs.”

"Very bad experience. Booked a table, before paying making sure that the table will not be moved at some point to make space. Looks like the woman taking bookings called Candice will promise you anything..." Which venue is this?
