“Best of Best”
Reviewed December 14, 2013

This was my first time at Floor by O. Nice place with everyday happenings. Evening is best time to go there. So much variety of cocktails and mock tails Bites also we can get for reasonable price. Staff also very friendly. But if we going on Friday there will be too much crowd. I think every things can say best at Floor by O.

“The Best Pub/Bar in Colombo”
Reviewed August 11, 2013

This the the best pub in Colombo for the young crowd with all the cocktails, beer, liquor, best bites and meals. Cheap prices and variety of cocktails to choose from and dishes. Staff is helpful and polite. On Fridays, this place is jam-packed and better to go to the place early as possible. They issue a ticket for Rs. 1,000/- but it is redeemable against the bill, which is excellent.

“Horrible!”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Our first visit to the floor. Only good for excessive drinkers and smokers! No entertainment for people who just wanna come and have a good time with friends.
We got a ticket for Rs. 1000/= which was said to be redeemable against any item in the menu. After some time, my fiancee and I were asked to move to the poolside and give our table to some other crowd, but the poolside was full, so we came back in, only to realize our ticket was GONE! it was just GONE! and they refused to set off the 1000 against our bill so we ended up paying the whole amount! VERY DISAPPOINTING!!!
We were there till 10pm, and not a single soul was dancing. The band was okay-ish but not at all exceptional. Oh plus they really need to put simpler guidelines on how to get there, cos it's on a one-way road!
The food was dry and i could almost smell the MSG in them, but it was okay, couldn't really complain.
I'm just saying if you're only source of entertainment is drinking this could be the place for you but dark, dingy, suffocating pubs with thieving and unjust waiters are not really my idea for a hangout.

“Really vibrant bar/restaurant/live music.”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

Around 10 minutes ride by taxi from central Colombo is this great bar. It can be a little difficult to find on Maitland Crescent, but as long as you can find the Coffee Bean, then it’ll be just a few minutes’ walk from there. If you reach HSBC, you’ve gone too far.

The bar is near where Clancy’s was and has a very discrete entrance, just a doorway with the ‘O!’ sign above it.

There is an outside terrace overlooking the swimming pool and cricket pitch (see photos), and then inside is a long bar and also booth style seating.

The bar seems to be lively almost every night, weekdays or weekends and also has live bands playing who are superb. Music appears to be 80’s, 90’s and 00’s (U2 etc.).

The drinks and food are very well priced, particularly compared to some of the other more vibrant bars in town. The food is of a reasonable standard, with a good selection. It includes a mixture of British, American and Sri Lankan options.

They do seem to have a dress code which precludes shorts, open sandals (flip flops) etc.
The bar can get quite busy later on and I believe charges for entrance on weekends.

Tuk Tuk/Three Wheelers are available outside until late to whisk you back to your hotel/home.
Highly recommended.
