I recently visited suckerpunch to join my friends for some drinks. On entering the foyer a gentlemen greeted me- I told him my friends had a table and that I was joining him. I told him the name of my friend and he informed me...More
Love this place! The only trouble is getting in as they only do table service and you can't there. Otherwise, the best place in St Albans. The cocktails are superb, the staff is great. The cocktails are on a pricey side, but they are worth...More
Having been to many cocktail bars around, we love this place - feels like London vibes but hidden away down a quiet road in St Albans (centrally located).
Really good cocktails and great staff. It’s our fave place! Do book in advance if you can...More
Wow this place is a gem, best place to go in St Albans. Made sure we booked as advised from reading previous reviews.
Staff super friendly and know their cocktails inside out, even went off menu. Will be back (when hangover permits me too!)
Wow - we tried to get a drink here as part of Legends St Albans night last month but were turned away as we didn't' book. Such obnoxious staff on the door - will not be back!More

This happens from time to time, specifically the ‘shocked’ part. I don’t bother with these types of reviews typically but I am waiting on for a meeting to start so, allow me to explain...

We turned up without a booking. It’s a cocktail bar I didn’t expect to have to book it’s not a restaurant. But they did their best to make sure we were comfortable. Found us seats when a slot came free and were very polite when...More
Called in here a few times during the week and this was the first Friday I had been. During the week a bit quieter as you would expect, but stunning service and a genuine interest from the owner as to what you would like to...More
This place is definitely a well hidden spot. Great for a night out with friends or your partner. Has both a downstairs and an upstairs so plenty of space if there’s a larger group. The drinks were all great and the bartenders very friendly. Really...More
We visited this bar with friends. It’s decorated really nicely and the staff were really friendly. We all had different cocktails which were delicious. I’d recommend booking in advance as when we were there they were fully booked. We’ll definitely be returning to try a...More

Here at Suckerpunch we’ve always operated a zero tolerance policy towards any form of harassment regardless of age, race, gender or sexuality. Our House Rules have been in place since Day One for this exact reason.
Our seated-only policy builds in a level of safety and prevents unwelcome approaches.
Theoretically, you’d never need to approach a member of staff to state that you’re being harassed or feel uncomfortable but we have zero objections to Ask For Clive and we would emphatically encourage all bars and pubs to adopt the policy.
