loop is a cool place, its typical tourist place, cheap drinks and busy crowd! but its a good fun!


Oh Lord. It really wasn't great. At all. On top of being located in a dark backstreet right off Oxford street, I got an extra 5 wrinkles waiting for the bartender to even get our order. Bless him, he was trying hard but was on his own behind the bar when this place was packed, even though it was only a Wednesday night.

I went there because it was accepting Tastecard and my friend thought it would be a good idea... It wasn't. Fair enough, thanks to both the Tastecard AND the 50% off drinks Happy Hour, we had a cocktail and main dish each and only spent about £9 each, which is a pretty nice deal. And the raspberry mojitos were very sweet and tasty! The food was passable.

The place was super loud but the music very cheesy, which was a good thing.

Ooh and my whole experience is based on the ground floor but there's a mysterious basement that might be lots of fun and better staffed, who knows!


I only had a mojito but it was goooood :) The bar upstairs is nice and light but apparently downstairs is verrrrry noisy (not great for a post work drink but I am sure fun for a night out?). They have a happy hour (can't remember the deal) during the week. Their cocktails don't seem anything amazing but are standard and thirst quenching!

The manager with the ginger hair has an attitude problem. Saw him yelling at these two girls inappropriately whole he told his staff to tell the queue to shut up?? I understand many people r trying to get into the club but he could've worded it out nicely instead of shouting and trying to angrily kicked people out. Suggesting to change their manager as this is not the first time I heard the story but actually saw it by myself! If it isn't the student night I don't recommend anyone to go! Rude

On the evening of Saturday 22 February 2014 I attended this venue located on 19 Dering St, London W1S 1AH to celebrate an old friend’s 24th birthday. At 2142 my friend decided to take his t-shirt off on the dance floor to boogie on down to his favourite 80s track. He was quickly removed from the venue by three bouncers, which to be honest I found - as he was not proving to be a threat nor inconveniencing any other guests - a little bit over the top. That said I can see the logic behind the decision to remove him from the venue - the rest of us decided to finish up our drinks and move on. As we left the venue and entered the street we were greeted by two members of the door staff shouting obscenities towards my friend and a couple of ladies in our group who left with him. Being told to “f*ck off” and to “get the f*ck out of here” was completely uncalled for and outright unprofessional. After hearing “f*ck off” for the fourth time I decided to ask for the door members identification numbers as I was going to make a complaint to the bar and the SIA. The doormen refused to give me his details which I believe is in breach of his working practice. I then proceeded to take a photograph of the doorman who was proving to be ‘a bit big for his boots’ for want of a better phrase. Upon photographing him (which was completely legal as he was standing in a public place) he swung a punch at my hand resulting in my mobile phone landing 10-15ft away — which no doubt was the intention when throwing hist fist. Another doorman then tried to push me away from the venue. I stopped him in his tracks and stated that I did not invite him to touch me and that any further contact would be regarded as assault. He soon stopped. At no point was I, or any of our mixed group confrontational. I asked to speak with the head doorman and manager of the venue. I was refused this opportunity. This matter has now been reported to the police and The Home Office’s SIA department after such non-cooperation from the door staff and the licensed SIA member. I believe this member of staff is at fault by: - Refusing to give me his details - Refusing to get a manager - Throwing a punch with the intention of causing personal harm and criminal damage I tried to resolve this issue at the venue with no luck. I strongly advise against visiting this venue, after my personal experience here and a general trend form other reviews that they seem to treat their clientele with utter contempt.
