Nice bar great music! This place is conveniently located in soho. We chanced upon this bar after dinner and was pretty impressed with this place. Staff are friendly and nice, this place is pretty crowded. Try to get a seat upstairs if you want a quieter and cosy atmosphere.


O Bar is one of those places where you end up when you're just going to the pub for that one drink and it escalates until you're out until the early hours of the morning. You're not dressed for going to a proper club but all the pubs are issuing last orders and your legs feel like dancing so O Bar is the obvious choice. The music is pretty great in my opinion, recognisable so you can sing along and have a little dance if you want but not so intense like you'd get in a proper club. Drinks are pricey and it can get a little rough around there sometimes but I've had many a good night there.


Bigger on the inside than it looks on the outside, O Bar is a great place if you want a change from the usual Soho scene. Three floors, each boasting their own individual character, I chose O Bar to host my birthday drinks this year. My mistake was to book a venue that I have always walked past but never had a good look inside. The service was great, first to arrive I was shown downstairs to a room that was a mix of Peter Brook's The Empty Space (those who aren't familiar, you can use your imagination), and a hangout for the cast of TOWIE. Pretty Essexy, which is great for some, but I did think those days were over for me. Upstairs it looks really nice, tastefully decorated mood lighting and places to sit. Downstairs, its stark. Pretty much a white room, and some flashing lights.  When my friends arrived and I had a few drinks I had a really great night. Next time though, I think I may stick to upstairs.


O Bar is a great venue in Soho for having birthday drinks. Every time I have been there its been generally full and 'vibey'. The modern decor interior gives O Bar more classy feel. Good music, drinks and atmosphere. They have some great happy hour specials! The Pornstar Martini is a winner.  


Fun night in the O Bar last night - full of work groups but a fairly chilled atmosphere. Nice cocktails and great location in the heart of Soho.


Brilliant place for cheap drinks in Soho. The happy hour is amazing, 241 cocktails (which aren’t more than £6 each) and a pitcher for £10. Amazing place to have a few drinks before going out to a club or onto more bars in Soho. Great value. Service is not particularly friendly and the décor itself is quiet average. Can’t complain for these prices though. Would recommend for a quick drink.


The O-Bar is a great place to have cocktails in the heart of Soho!

They have 3 floors:

Upstairs, is a bit like a living room and people often hire tables up there for private functions. It's usually closed at the beginning of the evening they open it once it becomes busier.

Ground floor, this is the main bar area, in the early evening it's very much like a lounge, you can enjoy very nice 2 for 1 cocktails during happy hour, with nice background music.

Later it the place becomes quite busy, they music is turned up and there's a lot more of a party vibe going on!

Downstairs is the club, it's all white tiles and mirrors, with a dance floor and booths for groups to sit in. I haven't been there very often, so I can't really say much about it.

All in all, I really like this bar. The cocktails are good and reasonably priced, the service at the bar is just a bit slow sometimes, so when it gets busy you might have to wait for quite a while until you get your cocktail.

I am giving this a 2 star rating, however, I believe that this venue has the potential to become 4 stars. The size of the venue is perfect, both upstairs and downstairs, but maybe its still not that well known and people have other better known options in the same area. The music was great downstairs, the only problem is that there was hardly any people in there, even around 12am. So like I said, this place has potential, its just needs bigger crowds.
