I have been to this venue few times and I always had an amazing time. Cocktails and food are nice, the service is good and the atmosphere is amazing. One time I went with a group of 10 people and the member of the staff did everything in the power to treat us like royalties. TIP: the best time to... More

This is the perfect venue for before or after dinner cocktails. Gorgeous lounges, chandeliers and house music with a killer cocktail menu to boot is what this place is all about!

I had a fantastic birthday party at Loungelover. It accommodated all of my needs, a large group, no ridiculous fee just a reasonable minimum spend, excellent food, fabulous seamless service, all on a Saturday night bang in the heart of Shoreditch. Our waiter Nicholas managed to always be in sight whenever anyone ordered a drink and even though we had... More

This was the first time visiting this bar & will 100% be the last time. My boyfriend made a reservation for my Birthday. We arrived at the bar & was seated on a shared small table. Which we wasn't too impressed with, as we expected a table on our own considering we had reserved one. Once choosing an overpriced cocktail... More

We went along to Loungelover on a Thursday night; the bar looks great and the ambience is good but it's let down by the appalling service. Not realising it was table service we waited at the bar for 10 minutes before a barman deigned to clue us in. When we managed to get a seat we were ignored by one... More

Went here recently for a friends birthday party, the host having recommended it. What a disappointment. The venue itself has a chilled our atmosphere, fairly large and well located, just near Shoreditch overground station. It sits on an unloved, crummy side street, but I wouldn't hold that against it. However, the staff... The service is absolutely shocking. The staff are... More

The cocktails prepared here are absolutely amazing. They are worth every penny and hats off to the bar staff, they are artists! However the place is massively let down by the pretentious rude children who are employed there. I have found the floor staff to have 0 people and customer service skills and choose to be unpleasant to paying customers,... More

Great drinks but staff verging on being pretentious. However, the weird vague more than makes up for this with interesting things to look at wherever you look. Recommended for couples who need a taking point or two.

Yeah... nah. Finally found this place and had a super hip dude show us to a table (the place was pretty empty, but clearly takes a lot of reservation bookings), which we were allowed for an hour. Cool, no probs. After going through the cocktail menu (lots of interesting options), we made our choices and ordered. Sadly, I seemed to... More

A friend of mind once told me that the only thing missing in London is nice cosy bars. This one would prove them wrong. It is nice atmosphere and lovely cocktails. Recommended

Staying in Shoreditch

Neighbourhood Profile
The western front of the edgy East End, Shoreditch is a perennially trendy haven for anything “street” – be it art, food, or fashion. With its handful of well connected transportation links dotting its perimeter, along with an ever increasing variety of shops, hotels, bars, and restaurants, it's easy to explore this trend-conscious and youth-oriented neighbourhood. There's a lingering post-industrial grit about Shoreditch, but because it shares a border with “The City” financial district, the influence from its upscale neighbour can result in fascinating outcomes.
