The Roadhouse Description

Book a table at The Roadhouse

The Roadhouse is featured in these Guides:

The name Roadhouse says it all really.

Found in a basement in Covent Garden, this 1950s style American bar diner has an expansive bar floor for dancing.

As a bonus (if you're into this sort of thing) there are leather-clad flair bartenders flipping and occasionally dropping the odd bottle all for your amusement. Bring on the cocktails! There's a 60-strong cocktail list that needs drinking.

With some of the best DJs around spinning an array of musical genres, Roadhouse generates possibly the best party atmosphere in London.

Live bands perform on stage every night adding to the experience.

Food is available all night and is served in the diner. Tables can be booked in advance or just ask on the night and they will accommodate you.

“an amazin night out! Music u can dance to (and sing to!), friendly staff, a fantastic happy hour and great cocktails!! what more could you want? Ideally located in the heart of Covent Garden.. just seconds away from the tube station (although this place is so good u will, no doubt, miss the last tube!!) ”

“Has to be the best bar in London. Get there early to avoid the queue and cover charge. Early doors means cocktails for around £3 and discounts on the food menu. Pace yourself ... steak now, nachos later. It's amazing with only 4 bartenders working on the main bar I didn't wait once for a drink. He took 3 other orders as well as mine all night long, constantly doing bar tricks as well. I only went in to meet some mates for a couple of beers. Ended up missing last tube because the band ROCKED. Always stay for the second set. Organizing work do there. Check it out.”

“Roadhouse goes off, get in early for no door charge cos it does get full, drinks are cheapest around Covent Garden and they have a bonus late night happy hour from 10pm til 11pm. The barstaff are unbelievable with their flair skills, they hold a competition every month where other bartenders come to take them on. Great music - bit of everything, even have live bands recommend you check it out.”

“Not a bad time if your looking for some good music (rap and rock definately from the 90´s). There are some good looking boys, and a hell of a lot of good dancing. The bar tenders are, ummm , shall i say friendly... damn hot... and put on a hell of an act.”

“Awesome !! Went there last Friday had a fantastic time with some work friends, just caught the end of their happy hour (5.30-7.30 !), a beer for £1.80 and cocktail for less than £3 which was a bonus. We also had some food in there American diner which was great value for money, tasty and we were served by a really great waiter. As the night went on and got busier we were delighted when a band came on at around 10.30, played a really good mix of tunes, went off then came back on after a break then played a fantastic 2nd set which got everyone in the venue rocking to. When the band went off a dj took over a played until 3am. All our party(aged 22-35) stayed until the end and agreed that it was the best staff night out we've had in ages, we thought the security staff were the most friendly and professional even encountered. Well done Roadhouse !!!”

“Live music late license the cocktail menu is the size of a Dickens noval. Shit this place is so good it sells its on mechandise and holds its own cocktail flair competition. Not bad for a place the size of your local pub and is probably the cheapest to get a drink in covent garden especially during their happy hour”
