Horrible bouncers
Jan 2017 • Friends
£9.45 for a cocktail is fine in a nice bar but this place is not. The barmaid had no idea how to make cocktails and she was really rude. Then upon sitting at an empty table we borrowed a stool from the next table and the bouncer tried to pull it from under my Wife as she sat down. We complained and managed to get our entry price of £7 each refunded so we left. Won't be going again. Ben the manager was very helpful though

cocktail making
Feb 2016 • Friends
Came her for a friends Birthday to do a cocktail making night for a couple of hours. We arrived at the agreed time to find the place all locked up and no lights on. Luckily they have contact numbers displayed by the door so a friend tried ringing them and managed to get through to head office who told us to go for a drink somewhere and they would call back.
We did receive a call back and were told to go back in 30mins.
The blokes behind the bar did a good job with trying to put things right and gave our table a bottle of vodka along with the two bottles of fizz that were in the package we had paid for.
We all got to make a cocktail, had a dance and enjoyed ourselves in the end, just a shame our time got cut down as we had another table booked somewhere else so we were unable to do the two hours that we had booked due to staff not being there on arrival

Nice cocktails and atmosphere, shame about the music..
Jul 2015 • Couples
Visited Lola Lo on a saturday night around 10pm so still a little early as we heard the music from outside and it sounded like fun dance music, a break from the usual chart rubbish you hear in other clubs in the city.

Not long in thoughm it changed to the usual rubbish that unfortunately we hate, lots of Beonce, Destiny's Child etc chart trash which was lapped up by the vast amount of hen do groups in there which started to fill the place up. The DJ also didn't seem to finish many songs and chop them up all over the place.

We ordered a few cocktails each to the tune of £6.00 which is fairly standard and wasn't a problem, hey were quite nice and well made (I forget the name but a refreshing Midori Vodka mix) but the fancier ones which seemed to come in weird glasses just seemed a bit like a gimick to me.

We found it a bit odd that management have decided to not put in much in the way of seating, of course you don't go clubbing to sit all night but you can't dance the whole time. The set up leaves you standing around looking awkward and feeling uncomfortable with your drinks or leaving. What seating that there is, is bunched together and all taken up by pre booked VIP hen do parties.

It cost £5 to get in and £2 for the cloakroom and the cloakroom cost seemed a bit steep given the cost of drinks and entry etc.

All in all, okay and nothing terrible, but wouldn't be my first choice in Oxford.

best birthday ever
Jul 2015 • Friends
got to the club just before 11pm so we all got in with discounted entry which was great as it went up to £5 afterwards and then £7 after midnight!
the bar was busy and had a great atmosphere, it was great to see the bar staff make the cocktails and i understand it takes time and once we got our cocktails we went for a little snoop around and then made our way to the dance floor where a girlfriend of mine suggested a song and they played it only a few minutes which was great! And once it turned 12 everyone on the dancefloor sang me happy birthday! Best 28th Birthday!

Hen do - VIP area - don't bother!
Jul 2015 • Friends
I pre booked the VIP area and told the lady I booked it with that we would all like to order cocktails when we arrive between 10.30-11pm
We arrived at 10.45, shown to the VIP area, club was busy - probably 90% females and a few other hen parties.

No staff on bar in VIP area bar- raised issue with bar staff after waiting 15 minutes - was told the were short staffed and that if we wanted cocktails we would have to wait for 15-20 minutes - which would have meant in total wait of half an hour.
Spoke to Manager who didn't apologise - was happy to refund my deposit so we went elsewhere.

Such a shame as all 20 of us were intending on spending the remainder of the night in Lola Lo- What a let down and embarrassment for me as the party organiser :-(

A real let down
Jul 2015 • Friends
Attended here last night for my hen do. My friends had booked a table and paid a deposit for a minimum spend. We were shown to our table and left for ages and then told that they wouldn't be able to serve us any drinks for half an hour. We left but I felt bad for my bridesmaids as they had gone to the effort of arranging it.

not what I expected at all...
Jun 2015 • Friends
Went with party of 4 as part of my birthday celebrations. Chose this club as thought the retro tiki vibe would be fun. Started ok on the door as I had registered for guest list, which included free entry. Headed down the stairs and was then told we then needed to pay £5 each cover charge. I argued with the attendant that it had been advertised free entry until he finally relented. Made it inside to an empty club with zero atmosphere. The music was awful so no point dancing and it was too loud which made conversation impossible. Part of why I chose this place was that we would be there during happy hour which promised half price cocktails and £2 bottles of beer. So why did a round cost £30??! Unfortunately I was with someone far too polite that didn't question the price they were being charged. We finished our drinks and left. Will not return nor would I recommend it. So many brilliant places to go for a drink in Oxford... skip this.

Nice decor, over priced
Jan 2015 • Friends
Nice place if your looking to spend lots of money, fun inside atmosphere and dres up room, but bars are small and alcohol pricey. i only go for happy hour or special events as it can be costly to get into and costly to drink, dancefloor small but lots of seating and usually good djs

New Years Eve
Dec 2014
Come down to oxford for the new year on arrival to the club we said that we had pre booked and payed for tickets for the new year party to which we got the response that they needed to see the E ticket which I didn't have I only had the reference number I was told in a rude manner put your internet on I responded that there was no signal in the club to which I was told to go up outside and get it sorted ! After 5 minutes of explaining that i had the reference number and ID to prove who I was he finally agreed to look on his list and let us through. When we got to the bar I ordered a drink and then my parter did the bar man was completely arrogant ! He turned around to my partner who was getting his money out and said "your going to need a bit more money then that mate" in a rude manner ! . Then my partner went to the toilet and the toilet attendant demanded money off him for using the toilet hand soap. Overall the night wasn't ruined it's a nice location it's just a shame that it's ruined by rude people
