The area
Address
129 City Road, London EC1V 1JB England
Neighborhood: Shoreditch
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 neighborhood. 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 neighbor can result in fascinating outcomes.

'my kinda place'
Oct 2021
What a fine. So nice to sit down comfortable, drinking good cocktails (or just beer/wine), listening to some Jazz/blues (doesn't have to be your favourite type music), great atmosphere, welcoming. I didn't know these types of places still existed!
will be back.

Amazing Jazz Night
Oct 2021 • Couples
Went here with my partner to celebrate his birthday and wow, what an evening. The cocktails were delicious, really unusual flavours and beautifully presented. We were fortunate enough to sit right in front of a 4 person jazz band, who played from 9pm onwards! The music, atmosphere, lighting and service was all incredible. Would definitely recommend this place for a special occasion!

Lovely but pricey

Fantastic, innovative cocktails and polite staff!
Unfortunately didn't see any live music as this was a pre-drinking venue for me! Only downside was the price of some of the cocktails in comparison to other bars, I know they are not the cheapest of drinks and a lot of preparation goes into them but it cost me and my partner the same as our evening meal that we had afterwards!

Honestly don't see the hype at all

I tend to avoid writing such negative reviews about places, however I made a trip-advisor account just to warn others (that's saying something). I mean if you wish to go to a bar where the bar tenders make you skirm worthily uncomfortable whilst preparing a mediocre, underwhelming cocktail..... with some sad Jazz bellowing in the background, by any means, sure! This is the ticket. Although a place that is only good, depending on the rotation of staff and poorly made decisions such the cocktail list. Then this is just not it.

Amazing jazz bar

A little hidden gem! Make sure to make a reservation as tables are limited and it is seating-only place. Unfortunately we came too late and just missed the live band, but music continued to be great nevertheless. Cocktails are absolute craft of creativity - make sure to get some to enjoy the uniqueness of tastes and visual presentation.
A lady named Cintia will give you the best recommendation for cocktails and surprise you with suggestions.

Very nice evening

One of the best club I've ever seen.
My drink wasn't the best, but I think I chose it badly, the others were all good.

The best atmosphere and nice cocktails!!!! All started from the incognito entrance!!! It’s an underground bar with the best atmosphere I’ve met during my 4 days in London. Very tasteful cocktails and live music (don’t know if it’s every day) highly recommended!

Expensive and slow
Oct 2019
Doorman says its busy, have you booked? "No"
Proceeds to take us downstairs anyway.
Loads of tables and no one enters the entire time we are sat there.
Then you look at the menu and try to work out what it is exactly that justifies the price ?
A long wait for a fancy looking cocktails with a couple of sips of juice in it.
Been there, done it, won't go again.

Excellent!

Nightjar is the best bar in London hands down. The cocktails are inspired and delicious. We went on a Saturday night with friends, and booked a few months in advance. Cocktails are £12-15 and bottles of wine from about £22 which is very reasonable. The cover charge was £8 per person which goes to the band and there is a 12.5% service charge on top for drinks. But it’s well worth it for the experience. It’s 100% seated and table service, so no issues trying to find somewhere to sit or people blocking the band like in other bars. We were served by courteous and knowledgable staff.

Highly recommend the zombie cocktail which comes on fire (but not for the faint hearted!) and the sharing cocktails which have impressive jugs!
