I can't recommend The Loft highly enough. Just celebrated our Engagement party and we had a great night. Food and drinks were tasty and nicely presented, DJ played great music and the service was attentive and friendly, especially Vince. Will definitely be back.

I booked an area at the Loft in Clapham for a birthday night out. They were very accommodating towards my needs - there were 25 of us and therefore required enough seating etc. Management were great at offering us the best deals on food and drink, with the ability to pre book anything that suited our tastes. When we arrived at The Loft, our area was reserved and we had a great night, the bar area was never too busy but there was a great atmosphere! Music and drinks were fab, and a great night was had by all! Thanks guys!

I booked an area at The Loft for a friend's leaving do and I can't speak highly enough of the venue, the staff and the drinks menus. We received a complimentary bottle of Prosecco which was a really nice touch and the venue wasn't overcrowded or noisy. The music/DJ was good and the location is perfect if you want to visit other bars in Clapham. I'll definitely be back to try the food and it's a great place to visit for a range of occasions, whether it's for a quiet drink or a full on night out with friends.

I celebrated my Birthday here and couldn't have been happier. Micha (the manager) was really great at helping with the planning before hand and she couldn't have done more. On the night we all enjoyed the food (especially the Arancini)  and cocktails (can highly recommend The Allstar and the Passion of the Loft). The service was great and the atmosphere was relaxed. The bar can get busy, but that's only because it's a popular place. 

We will definitely be back and I would definitely have another event there in future.

Jo Parkin

We had a lovely rtime at the Loft. We used our tastecard for 50% off the food bill, and with it being Happy Hour as well, it was amazing value. The food was excellent for a bar, with the pulled pork burger being particularly good. We will definitely be going back soon.

Last week I celebrated my birthday at The Loft, and the whole night went effortlessly. After reading some negative reviews about the venue, I was a bit apprehensive, so I talked to the manager about my concern for the quality of the staff's service, and he assured me it would all be great, which it was. The Loft's convenient location, situated between Clapham North and Clapham Common stations, make it easy to travel to once you surface from the Tube. The venue is beautiful, kept clean, and it has a lovely view to the buzzing High Street. The staff were helpful, and I was happy that all my guests were impressed and pleased with the venue I'd selected, which allotted a very nice space just for us. The music was on point, the cocktails were delicious, and the food looked amazing, and I look forward to returning to another great night.

Rachael

Had a lovely time at the Loft on Satuday. The staff were friendly and made us some delicious cocktails, and the food was surprisingly good as well, really tasty. We'll definitely be going back soon!

I held my birthday party at The Loft. I was apprehensive about going to a venue I'd never been to before but I should not have worried. Misha, the manager, helped me organise a great seated area as a base for my friends and organised serving dishes for the table for everyone to share when we arrived. There is always a worry that the atmosphere will be lacking in 'dry January;' but the bar was lively with good music and the food was tasty. We had a dance towards the end of the night and were there until the lights came on! I would definitely reccommend The Loft as a birthday drinks venue.

emily retter

Great venue. What's good about The Loft is you can happily spend the whole evening there, starting off with a seat and some good sociable sharing food and cocktails while you chat, and then making a really big night of it if you want. The music's good and the venue steadily fills up with a lively crowd so if you want to dance the night away later on you can. The clientele are a bit older and pretty laid back too so it all feels more relaxed than some of the other venues on the High Street!

Debbie

I booked The Loft for birthday drinks without any of the group having visited before. The reviews I read were all positive so I thought I would give it a go and it certainly didn't disappoint. A fab range of great tasting cocktails and friendly bar staff started the night off well. As did the sharing dishes that we ordered for when we got there. The mini burgers were brilliant. The music was great, and in our seated area you could still have a conversation, but the music was loud enough for a bit of a boogie in the area without seating. We will definitely be back.

Steve

Just to say many thanks for the night really good service and the food brought out was really nice and bang on time! Have never been before and everyone said how much they enjoyed the place and will be definitely be returning!

Been here a couple of times and it was absolutely fine, so I thought NYE would be guaranteed fun times. Boy was I wrong! The guy who greeted us was quite abrupt from the moment we entered the venue. Ok, New Year's is quite busy, I totally understand that and didn't think any more of it. However, the waiter who served us was shocking. I don't expect to be spoken to condescendingly and dismissively as a customer after my friend commented on the long delay in food service. The waiter argued with me in front of other customers then I asked him to get his manager. Even worse the manager was rude too! Suggesting that I was wrong to complain about the rude waiter. Got a refund for the food only (the manager turned slightly aggressive when he thought I asked to be refunded for our drinks too - I did not) and we ended up spending NYE at home after leaving as eveywhere else was pre booked. Will never go back since there are lots of decent bars in Clapham. Totally shocked by the night to be honest, being NYE when people are usually quite jolly. I wouldn't have left a bad review but as a usually mild mannered person I feel compelled to. On NYE too! Will avoid this place like the plague in future. Agree with Cecile who has reviewed below.

I booked an area in the bar for my husbands 30th on December 7th. The whole process was really easy, with quick responses on email. I pre-booked some bottles and food, all of which turned up promptly. We all had fab night, one too many cocktails maybe!

Fiona P

Booked The Loft for birthday drinks and it did not disappoint!!! My friends and I had a great night, food was good and the variety of drinks for non-drinkers was nice!!! Staff are very friendly and I would definitely recommend The Loft to family and friends.

Andrew H

Looked this place up online to meet a mate in Clapham midweek. Was not disappointed. Really friendly staff, and great drinks. Next time I'm in Clapham will definitely go back.

Ben Baker

I reserved an area for 20 guys on a stag do on a Saturday evening. The area was great and it was also Happy Hour making for a great start to the evening. The drink choice was really good and the bar staff very helpful. I was very impressed especially with the help in making the initial booking. I will definitely be going back to The Loft! Highly recommended.

marta

I booked the loft last week end for my birthday drinks and I was really please with my choice. The reserved area was perfect, the music was really good and we all had a great Saturday night. I was also really pleased with the prompt response I received anytime I had a query and the staff was really friendly and helpfulI . I will definitely go back!

Cecile B

Avoid like a plague!THE WORST place we have been to in a very long time. I am surprised it's still open with the amount of extremely bad attitude coming from the barmen and waiters. Whether it's a frustration from not being paid enough or just sheer unprofessionalism I do know, but absolutely appalling service with the most aggressive barmen ever. Classless, overpiced place. But then, at least we didn't get punched or pushed down the stairs by the bouncers like the people commenting below. With so many other nice places around, do not bother, unless you enjoy being talked down at and verbally abused. Gave one star as otherwise it wouldn't publish, but should be minus 5.

Aaron

Power hungry bouncers who make you quue up when the bar is empty! Warm bottled beer and a very student atmosphere. Won't be returning

Beth

Was part of a group that booked an area for a birthday celebration, and had a very enjoyable experience. The bartenders were friendly and quick, despite there being a fair few of us. The decor and atmosphere were great, despite it only being a Wednesday night. And the cocktails, oh my! The ones I sampled were fantastic and for the 241 deal that runs every night until 9pm, you can't really argue! We all had a wonderful night and I want to come back to try the rest of the cocktails on their menu!

Devin

Booked The Loft in August 2013 for a cocktail making class as part of a Hen weekend. Service was great, the teacher was very knowledgable and friendly. We all had a really good time and it certainly endeared me to go back.

Rupal

My fiance and I booked the common room area for about 50 of our friends and family for our engagement drinks.... needless to say... we had the BEST night! We had pre-booked food and drinks, and all our guests loved the sharing dishes (especially the lamb kofte and the arancini - delightful!) We took full advantage of the cocktails and beers on the 241 ;-) Everybody had a lovely evening - we will definitely be coming back again! Special thank you to Misha, who was very helpful from the very beginning.... we'll be seeing you soon! xxx

John

Thouroughly impressed with the venue, atmosphere, excellent and friendly service and finally all of our meals and drinks! We will definately be back soon

Catherine Graham

I booked out an area for about 30 friends for my B'day bash last Sat. Staff were massively accommodating and helped move randoms off our seats throughout the night even though a lot of my guests were late! Was a great evening all round, cocktails on 241 were great, bar staff were so friendly and could have a laugh even though were clearly very busy. You wouldn't necessarily notice the bar straight away from the street but once you get up there it's great and really bright, classy and comfortable. We stayed until about 22.30 then headed to Infernos; it was getting pretty rammed by then and would have been a great place to stay and party I imagine! Obviously a popular bar ;) will come back for sure,

Manuela

I was there yesterday for a quick bite to eat - I tried the veggie burger and oh my, it was DELICIOUS! chips were perfectly cooked. Overall great, staff was super nice too, I will for sure come back! :)

Caroline

I reserved a space at the loft on Friday night to celebrate my 32th birthday. I had a good space and no problem to fit all my guests in the area. I had a great time and a night full of fun. Great food and cocktails. All the member of staff were very friendly and helpful. I will definitely come back and recommend the place to my friends.

Clare Emma

I went to the Loft on a Friday night. I had reserved a table for 12 people and we all had a brilliant time. It was really comfy, great cocktails and fab food. Even the music was good. Absolutely no complaints!!

RACHAEL CONLON

Having just moved to the area, I have been checking out local bars, and I popped into the Loft on a Tuesday night with some friends. It wasn't that busy, but the drinks were delicious, and exceptional value as they were serving 241 cocktails all night. I haven't been back at the weekend yet (I understand it can get rather busy then) but for midweek drinks, its great!

claire wilkins

I booked the common room at the loft for our engagement party, and the staff at the loft were ever so helpful. They had lots of bottles of champagne and wine all arranged beatufully on a table for us when we arrived. We ordered quite a bit of food and they were very accomodating bring it out in lots of little batches as our firends arrived. The quality of the cocktails was exceptional. All together a top evening.

Ian Johnson

I reserved a space at the loft for my Fiancee's 30th, and was impressed from start to finish by the customer service at the Loft. We exchanged quite a number of emails discussing all our requirements for the night, and nothing was too much trouble. The drinks are really tasty, and the food is surprisingly good too. Would definitely recommend.

Robyn Parker

Awesome bar. They made my birthday go so smoothly. All my guests had a great time. Many thanks.

Sarah

I recently celebrated my 30th birthday at The Loft and my friends and I had a fabulous evening! I booked an area a month in advance and the Manager was most helpful and sent me all the details for the night including; dj timing, menu, drinks specials and booking options. The space was perfect for my group and the cocktails were amazing! I would definately recommend The Loft for a weekend night out or a special occasion.

Lizzie Clancy

We booked the common room at 'The Loft' for our christmas party. It was an easy and trouble free booking process and we were pleasantly surprised with teh space we were allocated for the night. We had a wonderful evening thanks to all the friendly and helpful staff on hand throughout. To sum it all up- great space, awesome cocktails (especially the Lady Boy Mojitos!!), and lovely staff- perfect for our work party and we will be booking again next year!

Lisa

I organised my 27th birthday celebrations here and the staff at The Loft were extremely helpful and friendly and had excellent communication via email. They were accommodating (especially because I left it until a few weeks before my party date to book out an area). Luckily everything came together and another party had pulled out, leaving an area to be reserved for my party & I. They were lovely and let my friends bring in a cake and set up my area with balloons making it extra special. The bar staff were lovely and efficient and the bar itself was spacious and the music was good. Various times throughout the night, I had various friends come up to me and say nice choice on the bar. Definitely recommend this place :-)

Astrid

Picked this spot as I wanted a relaxed, friendly bar for my boyfriends birthday and I'm happy to say all our needs were met, we had a great time! I'd reserved the Common Room and was pleased to find it had ample space for the fourty or so people who turned up to celebrate with us. It was slightly sectioned off from the main area as well, meaning we didn't disturb other customers. Everything ran smoothly and the bar staff were exceptionally helpful. The music was also terrific, perfect for the chilled out vibe we wanted. Couldn't have asked for more.

Nicky

Went for first time on Sat 25 Aug 2012. The doormen/security staff have nothing on the stasi. They're rude & aggressive. One actually began to put his hand in my bag to dig around looking for only knows what until I told him that wasn't acceptable. There is nowhere on earth worth this hassle. The bar is full of 20somethings, getting p***** & feeling each other up. Not for the discerning late thirty something. One star rating is for the friendly barperson who served me.

Katie

The secutiry guys are very rude. We ordered our drinks at almost 1am and the barman didn´t make us aware that they were closed in 5 minutes. The security guys tried to quick us out before we finished our drinks, when other people were still drinking, apparently friends with the barmen. During 10 minutes, the secutiry guys tried to force us to leave our drinks and go and threatened not to let us in never again, until finally one of the manager asked them to let us finish. I won´t recommend this place, there are plenty of places in Clapham and don´t need to be treated like that

Pras

Had a fantastic 30th Birthday party at The Loft. I contacted the team a few weeks before the date and they were very helpful in suggesting a course of action for the night. I was provided with price lists, offers and an explanation of the area that was reserved for us. On the night, the staff were very friendly and accommodating. The food was great too! I pre-ordered mini-burgers and mini-fish&chips and they were just the right size portions to accompany my guests alongside the drinks. The bar itself is a great space with lots of seating and standing space. Not once did it feel overcrowded. Looking forward to visiting again!

alana

Super place! The staff are lovely, the sofas are nice and comfy, and the cocktails are amazing!.

Brendan

I booked an area for 40-50 and was stoked with how the evening turned out.. the bar was a perfect setup, exactly what I wanted for a night celebrating with close friends. Thanks again for your hospitality!

Genevieve

I booked The Loft for a girls night out and they were flexible and friendly throughout. The numbers and times changed and they happily accomodated us; this, the excellent service and the 241 cocktails made a great night!

Lucey Van

I celebrated my birthday here and had so much fun. We had a great seating area, the cocktails were amazing and loved the DJ. Only place to go in Clapham!

Ruth

Staff could use lessons in manners - They are unhelpul and arrogant. I wouldnt recommend...

Lauren

The loft is a such a greAt place for a night out. I had my birthday here a few weeks ago and had an amazing time! I had emailed the events team and asked to reserve a space, as I knew things get busy on a Saturday. When we arrived the space was all ready for us, and we enjoyed scrumptious 2-4-1 cocktails which were amazing! As the night progressed, more people arrived and we ended up staying until 130. The service was great, the bar is trendy and relaxed and all in all a great night out. Would recommend to all!
