One of three Adventure Bars in London, this subterranean spot on Bedford Street brings a combination of cocktails, tunes, food and good times to Covent Garden. 

The food menu features dishes such as jerk skewers, burgers and sharing platters showcasing some of the mains as well as sides including sweet potato chips, sunshine slaw and rainbow peppers. 

The drinks list ranges from vodka shooters infused with strawberry bon bons or cookies and cream, to porn star martinis, caipirinhas, flaming zombies, sharing cocktails and beers from around the world. Selections from the cocktail list are available for £6 each during the extended happy hours.

Adventure Bar says
With tunes that will make you forget yourself and an atmosphere often as electric as a tasered eel, this basement bar is a destination any day of the week for the daytime city dwellers. Evenings that start with casual after-work drinks and eats are known to often descend into dancing on tables.

The bar itself is a subterranean cocktail den which thrills with its impressive vaulted ceilings and interesting design features. This place was once a wine cellar of such repute that dukes were murdered to gain access. And this bar now calls upon the spirit of those heady days and treats them to the service and food and drink of champions, albeit in a slightly more casual manner and with significantly less slaying.

Located in the bustling Covent Garden in London, only a stone's throw from Soho, serving delicious cocktails, Champagne, wine and beer, there's something for everyone. Find a romantic spot for a first-date on a quieter weeknight, or book an area for you and your mates to party through the night on the weekends.

'Adventure time' treats you to cocktails every day of the week until 9pm, Sunday-Thursday, and 8pm, Friday-Saturday. £6 selected cocktails and £3.50 Peroni Rossa.

A bit stinky, but good for large groups if you get there early!

The bar is in a basement but it's really nice and great atmosphere.


If you are in your 20s or actually in your 30s but still holding onto your youth- -Adventure bar is a treat. Bartenders are friendly and the music is pretty awesome (coming from a 30-something who secretly laughs when 20 year olds don't know Green Day songs older than the Nimrod album). 

Also-- the *ahem* eye candy is quite good from a ladies point of view ;) 

Cocktails are reasonable and no night reclaiming your youth would be complete without copious amounts of shots of some sweet liquid passing off as alcohol (the skittle ones are particularly tasty). Just be wary of that hangover the next day because let's face it-- you are not a young kipper anymore. 

Not good for: quiet evening in

Great for: PART-AY (like its 1999)

I think is good for a younger more rowdy crowd. It's always rammed, very loud. The cocktails are decent though, I just wouldn't go back on a weekend evening.

Great for parties and on the weekend! Keep an eye out for new menus and make use of happy hours!


I came here the other day for a colleague's leaving do and we had a brilliant time. The drinks were fantastic and the venue is awesome - very fun and quirky. The staff were really lovely and helped make the night a blast. Will definitely be back!

We booked a surprise birthday party for a friend and it was fantastic! A real hidden gem of a place. From the detail Sarah put in to planning our party to the FABULOUS manager who sat us. The Adventure time is fantastic value especially in central London like a happy hour. I would recommend the Surfers paradise the flaming zombie was awesome as well. The staff were extremely friendly and happy to help you with deciding on drinks. The music caters for everyone we had hits from the past all through till now. Takeover Tuesday was brilliant. Thank you Adventure Bar keep up the Good Times!

I've been to the Covent Garden Adventure Bart a couple of times now, and it's safe to say that I love it!! the cocktails are delicious and the bar staff are always smiling and very friendly. My favourite cocktail has to be the Dreamcatcher- it comes with a little fortune cookie as well which is a fun touch! If you're looking for a good atmosphere, decent music, and yummy fresh cocktails, then I would definitely recommend this place!

We had an amazing time at Adventure Bar :) The staff was friendly, fun and ready for a laugh. The service was fast and the happy hour on Saturday was ideal! Booking an area was easy and there was great disposition to fit all our little caprices ;) 


Party atmosphere. Extremely welcoming and friendly staff. Wide choice of cocktails. Had a fantastic time. Highly recommended. Only thing stopping a five star rating is that happy hour ends at 7 and some places offer half price/2 for 1 deals till 9. I can only afford cocktails in London when they're on special offer.
