Description: There is a long list of reasons to choose the vibrant Nordic Bar as your venue of choice. Not only do they offer a unique homage to all things Scandinavian, but they are also conveniently located in the heart of Soho. They kick things of with an impressive list of Scandinavian beers, crisp wines and refreshing cocktails, as well as some indulgent Scandinavian food, from traditional Swedish meatballs to their authentic Smorgasbord platter. Entertainment wise, they provide plentiful options, perhaps you’ll fancy competing against your colleagues in the game of ping pong or beer pong.Or maybe you are interested in live sports? They have that covered with their monthly listings of all the big games in the world of rugby and football, they also take requests too. They can arrange entertainment such as karaoke, speed dating, quizzes and more! Don’t miss out on their infamous shot wheel of misfortune; it’s the perfect way to get your party started!

I’ve booked a table for four to watch a NFL game on the 19th of January and it was a terrible experience due to the poor service and bad info gave me at the booking time. They asked (and I did) a depots for € 25,00 for the table and at that time I’ve specified I’d like to watch the NFL match. Unfortunately when we were at the bar we discovered that it’ll close at 10:30 pm, before the match ending! Ok we started to get some drink thinking to order some food (to use our deposit) later but when around 9:30 we’ve been to the desk asking to order the food the girl there answered that wasn’t possible anymore because the kitchen close at 9:00! They could tell us about that before... they lost clients, money (because we didn’t buy food and more drinks) and we had a very bad experience instead a “fun” experience like they advertise!
I won’t really go back there anymore especially to watch Super Bowl!!!

Hi there,

Thanks for taking the time to leave a review and visiting Nordic.

We would like to offer our most sincere apology for this booking. Unfortunately there was a slight miscommunication regarding the NFL fixture. You should have been informed this upon booking your area.

By way of apology we would like to offer you a free round of drinks and some food on us next time you are in the area. Please email info@nordicbar.com to claim this.

Apologies again and we hope that you will return soon.

Regards
Nordic Bar

We were a group of friends that stayed for food and drinks watching a football game. The atmosphere was just great. All football fans, especially the finish fans were very glad and were singing and cheering a lot. It was far better in reality than photos shows. It really gave us some unforgettable memories.

This year, I was tasked to help arrange the work Christmas party for a team of 25 and was looking for something different than a traditional sit-down lunch and came across Nordic Bar.

The reservation process to design a package that met our needs was simple and straightforward with a very personal and friendly touch. Nothing was too much of an ask- even a last minute change for a non-alcoholic attendee--- I was told the mocktails were excellent!

I believe as we had booked the location for an off-peak time of day, we were quite chuffed when we were told we had free reign of the venue till approximately 4pm, when other patrons would begin to show up.

We were warmly greeted by Marlon and Abi, with Marlon checking up to make sure everything was as expected until he went home for the day, with which his colleague Anthony (I believe, so sorry I had had a couple drinks by then!) took over and again- was extremely friendly and helpful. Even later in the evening Abi checked to make sure everything was all right and I really appreciated the dedication from the Nordic team to make sure our Christmas do was a success.

Beer pong was a huge hit for our team- at one point all of us were crowded around taking part- as well as Cards Against Humanity. An honourable mention also goes to the “Shot Wheel of Misfortune” that people were still talking about in the office the following Monday!

Food was tasty- both the vegan and meaty options and if I had to provide any criticism it would be that we would have happily paid even £5 more per person to have more to eat throughout the afternoon but really that is us just being nit-picky.

Thank you so much to Nordic Bar for a great party that was literally enjoyed by all! 

The Nordic allowed us to host our Soul Night Out event on the bank holiday Sunday in August. The general manager Anthony was very accommodating & the staff & security were brilliant on the night.

We look forward to returning for another Soul Cellar event this Xmas

The only place outside of Finland I've seen with long drink, for that reason alone it's worth 5 stars. But the staff were also friendly, toilets had fun wallpaper. The prices match London and their Nordic counterparts.
