Description: The Covent Garden Cocktail Club is one of London's most notorious cocktail bars, open in 2008 by mulit award winning mixologist JJ Goodman, it was the birth place of the London Cocktail Club group. The CGCC is still run independently, serving some of the cities best cocktails and snacks. Perfect place to meet, drink and party! Step downstairs into the basement which harmoniously blends the look of a quintessential British club with the vibe of prohibition-era New York City. Sink into the Chesterfield sofas and sample the three-tier sharing platters with friends, colleagues or a loved one in this cosy and stylish setting

Arrived and greeted at the door by a friendly lady... Luckily got some seats as most all of the sofas were reserved. In a small place like this I don't understand how can they reserve everything...?! Cocktails were great but I was not feeling comfortable seeing that the junior barman making our drinks while the senior mixologist making fun out... More

Well I went here with a friend and had an amazing night. The staff were so friendly, 1 barman in particular was great - he made the tastiest cocktails, gave us happy hour rates for one round after happy hour had finished because he forgot our order (didn't have to complain to receive this) and made us special cocktails off...

It's a small place but the vibe is great, the drinks are good and you get quite a measure. The barmen are great apart for the lady glass collector just pushes past

First impressions were a bit alarming, it's not for the pretentious, but have to say the cocktails were fabulous, good quality, not watered down and between 5-7 it's buy one get one free! Not sure you'd get such a great cocktail for £5 effectively anywhere else in London. Must try the Pornstar Martini it is to die for. Left this... More

Wanted great cocktails and somewhere to dance for 20 mates on my birthday. Heard that the music was good and could dance on tables and it didn't disappoint. If you want a quite night in a pretentious environment maybe give it a miss, if you want a bloody fun night out and really tasty cocktails book early to secure yourself... More

We've all had the experience of turning up an hour late to a party having been delayed by work or other business, only to find that in that hour, someone cracked open a bottle of tequila and everybody is either laughing, dancing ungracefully or snogging. You are left to stand awkwardly in a corner, trying to summon the courage to... More

The Covent Garden Cocktail Club had been recommended to us, so thought we'd give it a try. Firstly it's worth noting this is a club, which requires 'membership'. This is dealt with through an online form and payment of £1 to cover the cost of your membership card. In all honesty it seemed a bit unnecessary, but the girl on... More

We went last yesterday for a drink (with a member of the club) and they couldn't be more rude, with bad attitude and also the bar stink horrible. then we went to Balthazar for drinks and we got treated like KINGS! Thanks to CVCC for helping me to keep going to Balthazar!

Tucked away just off Leicester square this is a hidden little gem. Buzzing atmosphere and fun bar staff knocking up some of the best cocktails ever! My wife didn't like one of her cocktails which one of the barmen picked up on and without any prompting replaced it for another asking her what flavours she liked. We went on a... More
