My friends has organised my birthday party. We went for dinner and then to Nola bar. That night Nola had a live band and pianist performing in the small room where we were sitting. At the entry we got masks and pearls to wear and we became part of the atmosphere. We had a great time. The cocktails were great same as service. I can highly recommend Nola bar as a great place to go.

The name of this Rivington Street cocktail bar comes from New Orleans, Louisiana - a common abbreviation. The Big Easy influence doesn't stop there though, with a soundtrack of jazz, blues and rock 'n' roll alongside a cocktail list inspired by the city. They're the first bar outside of North America to be awarded the 'Seal of the Sazerac', in recognition of their efforts to honour New Orleans' official cocktail. Expect live music on occasion, too.

I had great experience at NOLA. Really nice place to hang out with friends. Drinks were really good and the price. The most cool thing about NOLA is, inside the NOLA. Will recommend people to check it out for once with friends.
It is a very nice cosy place tucked away on one of the side street just above bedroom bar. A very nice relaxing environment with lovely live music playing in the other room. There is also a nice selection of cocktails and the service was prompt, prices are reasonable. There is also a nice little balcony for smokers which is handy. Other then that its a nice place to drink and worth the visit.
As it was so busy I was asked to sit down after I ordered at the bar and they would bring me my drink. On delivery of the drink (of a distance of roughly 10ft), they promptly asked me for a service charge totalling £2.70. Service for what I might ask? The pricing ethos suits the pretentious environs of Old Street very well - you pay through the nose as a way of 'earning' the right to be there, then get moved off of an outdoor smoking table because what you are doing isn't expensive enough. Maybe I simply don't suit the type of place for people who like to burn their hard earned money.
