London Cocktail Club

Party bar down a foodie stretch in Bethnal Green.

Under the railway arches at Paradise Row is a whole roster of brilliant bars showing off quality wines and craft beers. And then there’s a seventh branch of London Cocktail Club, less about discerning drinking and more about The Fun. It milks a London Underground theme to echo its railway arch setting, so you’ll find vintage Tube posters, flashing metro signs and seats covered in the underground upholstery of nightmares. There’s also the happy clappy routine from staff behind the bar that has become synonymous with the brand. You’ll either love it or hate it, but at this end of town it’s likely to be the latter.

But what we can get behind is a daily happy hour hardly contested elsewhere in the capital, where two for one drinks are shaken at speed without quality being compromised. If you’re looking for a party, you’ve come to the right place. Especially if party for you means Justin Bieber tunes.

Classic cocktails come by the bucketload as well as LCC favourites, the bacon and egg martini included. Gimmicks continue in a similar vein throughout the menu – two neighbouring drinkers ordered bright blue Heisenbergs like they were going out of fashion (hint: they are). But stick with more straightforward numbers during happy hour, like a potent daiquiri and a decent spritz, and you’ll be laughing as much as the bar staff.

London Cocktail Club says
Hidden under the train tracks of Bethnal Green, the troublemakers of mixology introduce their latest masterpiece, the 'derelict train yard'! In a playful nod to its location, LCC Bethnal Green takes a railway theme, with a speciality in the most mischievous of intoxicants: gin!

I really like London Cocktail Clubs but wasn't even aware of this one on Paradise Row. It was a Sunday so 2 cocktails for £12 all day which is great and the service was excellent. I think you can always count on good music in the London Cocktail Clubs so that is always a plus! It was pretty quiet and therefore lacking a little bit of atmosphere but I'd definitely go back on another night where I'm sure it would be a lot busier.

This bar was not on books for tonight, but who would think so many good pubs in my area will be closed mid week. Do they think everyone is giving alcohol for Jan? They’re wrong! Anyway, we were not too late the catch the last gong for happy-hour (2 cocktails for £12). The selection is endless. I didn’t get the whole London transport theme, but the bubbly and entertaining explained it’s due to the station proximity. They also told us about the members club (more discounts!) and let us try some of their fancy liquors. I’m looking forward to visiting their other locations as they all have unique designs and vibes. The only fault is that they don’t offer any nibbles apart from little cup of popcorn, but then it’s free, so I shouldn’t probably complain.

Love:

  • The deals: they have awesome two cocktails for £12 offers and so for most of the evening.
  • The staff: young, sexy, skilled, cheeky and friendly.
  • The drinks: they taste great. This company really makes sure they hire the best bartenders and train them properly. These drinks are art – I mean, they smoke and set on fire some of their cocktails, which is enough for my little impressable mind to be blown away.

Hate:

  • The volume: it’s loud, loud, loud. Don’t go there to catch up or meet someone for the first time, unless you want said meeting to solely revolve around busting some moves or getting touchy-touchy.
  • Seating: there aren’t many seats available.
  • Price: if you buy cocktails outside of the deals, it’s a case of £8 to £15 per drink, which is mad as far as I’m concerned, no matter how good the drink is.

Seriously my favourite cocktail bar in London! My friends and I come here on a Friday to properly start the weekend and catch the happy hour! Their cocktail lists are endless and cover everything from your cocktail bar favourites to some more exotic kinds – I’ve tried one with bacon syrup in it! The staff are the friendliest staff around and make effort to chat to you when taking and bringing over your drinks order. They are also very knowledgeable on their cocktails and can tell you the best ones to go for based simply of your taste preference. The venue itself is in an old disused warehouse around the back on Bethnal Green station, adding to its real quirky feel. The background music is a good mix of hits and cheese, making it our perfect Friday night out venue.

Bethnal Green continues the LCC tradition of being a loud but super friendly and accessible bar, with excellent drinks and a cracking happy hour to boot. The staff know their stuff and are always happy to help you find a drink to suit, though there’s such a variety on the basic menu it will be a long time before you need to get off it. The major difference here is this LCC isn’t in a basement and has a less ‘rock’ atmosphere, but the more laid back aspects don’t damper the party atmosphere when it gets going. Not to mention the lack of staircase means that the bar is more accessible to everyone.


I will always suggest ending the night on a Smoking Barrel - my absolute favourite on the menu, despite close competition.

Just had my birthday party here - there were 15 of us and the bartenders let us dance on the tables and even go behind the bar and make our own cocktails. It's truly badass and the cocktails are soooooooooo good. 5 Stars 


I was so happy that an LCC has come to my neighbourhood! The staff know us by name already and the drinks are so much fun! Love this place! 


I went in on Sunday for the 2 for £12 all day/night and had a wicked time! Killer bar! Killer staff! Killer cocktails! Perfect for our group of 12, apparently weekends get crazy. I'll be back!
