Let's face it, you're only really going to stumble in here on a thursday or friday when the pubs in the city empty out. To be fair to them, they cater for this very well, and play some decent music. It's quite pricey, Don't expect change from a tenner for 2 pints. Never had the food, so can't comment there.

Went here for drinks with the girls. Quite dark and loud inside even at 530 but it's the sort of place you go for a full on night out I would say. Lots of dressed up people very glam! Great cocktails especially the large pornstar martinis. Friendly staff even when busy under pressure. Shame the outside bit isn't bigger for... More

A work event to enjoy the world cup was left sour as the management double booked and then refused sound during a world cup game that we specifically booked for. Totally dissatisfied that they refused to accommodate our requirements despite us being the vast majority of the space. On a personal level I did not appreciate the decor which I... More

Me and my wife had lunch at this place while visiting London. We stayed one block from here so it was convenient and while dining there were a few business people eating and drinking as well for lunch. We wanted to experience the nightlife this place has to offer as well, but unfortunately during the week there wasn't that much... More

I booked a work's party at Babble City last Thursday evening to celebrate the end of the financial year and can thoroughly recommend it as a fun location. The service was excellent; the staff were all very courtesy and made sure we had everything we wanted. The prices were good as there was happy hour until 7.30pm; great the cocktails.... More

Neighborhood Profile
City of London
From its ancient past as a Roman trading outpost to its 21st century status as the wealthiest square mile in the world, the financial district known simply as “The City” is one of London's most historic and fascinating neighborhoods. Here high rise office towers such as Norman Foster’s Gherkin mingle with Roman ruins and architectural marvels from virtually every era in between, including Christopher Wren's glorious St.Paul's Cathedral, and John Soane's dauntingly classicist Bank of England. This neighborhood is also home to some of the finest restaurants and plushest hotels in Europe, in addition to an assortment of of watering holes, upscale shops, and Tube stations. During the week, the City is abuzz with white collar workers going about their business; the weekend sees this area turn into a quiet haven for sightseers.
