“Probably below your worst expectations”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013 via mobile

Booked some space prior to our arrival on the advice of Alex. Good advice from her point of view as when we arrived at 10:15 in the evening it was deserted so we would have left had we not provided a £25 deposit.

Cocktail bar, but nevertheless bar man had to disappear downstairs to get some Gin. He did not have the grapes required for one of the cocktails on his menu so we had to have blueberries and incredibly he did not have lemon juice for a Tom Collins so had to make do with Lime Juice ( don't try it, it's awful). No apologies from bar man all he could say was that he was having a bad day

Never again and suggest no-one else does.

“Wonderful birthday with yummy cocktails!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

I chose to have my birthday here after reading such good reviews. The booking process was good and dealt with a lady called Zoe who was excellent. I was able to book an area for 20 people and get 3 bottled of wine and a platter of nibbles for £50.

On arrival we were shown to my area and I have to say I was slightly disappointed as I was expecting an area for 20 people but I had a booth which sat about 8 people. The staff were helpfully and tried to see if there were any other areas.

The happy hour is excellent with cocktails being £4.50 and the giant porn star martini for 2-3 people being £10!!!

My wine and nibbles didn't come until a few hours later for some reason and by then I had had far too many cocktails.

The music was brilliant and I danced all night!

All in all I would recommend jewel bar for a birthday and would say make use of happy hour

Me and a group of mates popped down for my friend's birthday, the bartender called Beth was incredibly helpful and gave us some really tasty cocktails on the happy hour deal! Would definitely recommend and will be returning!

“Excellent service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013 via mobile

I visited Jewel with a group of friends. We were greeted by Chloe who did a great job of making us feel welcome. We had reserved a booth which I highly recommend doing. The cocktails are great specially during Happy Hour! I can recommend the Porn Star for 2-3 people, particularly good value at only £10 in Happy Hour. If you are lucky enough you will be seated in the lovely Natalia's area, who will really look after you. She did such a good job we have reserved a booth tonight!

Unreal night! Half price cocktails were amazing and were too good! We didn't need much persuading by the beaut door lady Chloe who constantly checked up on us making sure we were having a good time! She's a great asset to the team! Lovely venue and such a buzzing atmospher. Definitely coming back soon! X
