I’m a regular at some club nights at the Phoenix - ‘Age Against The Machine’ & ‘Great Big Kiss’ are on top of my favourites list. The atmosphere at The Phoenix is always amazing, staff is super friendly and you can get some awesome craft beer at the bar. Most importantly, the crowd that comes along to these events is lovely. TOP PUB/CLUB venue in London!!!

I'm a regular at 'Old Rope' as they always have great comedians trying new material. I also love the 'What Ever Happened' club night - great music and atmosphere. The staff are always chirpy and very friendly, even when it's really busy you get served quickly and with a smile. I haven't eaten here yet but the burgers do look epic! They have an amazing beer range too!


I recently attended one of the most unexpectedly hilarious events of the year in the basement space at The Phoenix called 'Museums Show Off' and there hasn't been a soul whose ear I haven't chewed about it since! It was a gathering of 8 fantastic minds who work in some of our most impressive institutions in the city and each treated us to a presentation letting us in on some of the secrets of the trade. My cheeks were hurting from both smiling and laughing for such an extended period of time and I will most certainly be back for the next one in May!

Despite the bar being understandably busy, we were served very quickly very time and the snacks we bought to tide us over were also quick and delicious.

I came here to the All My Friends Club Night after hearing about it on Radio X. So much fun! The Italian girl working was crazy and hilarious - best moves I've seen behind the bar. Her and the other girl working (Jo I think?) were so friendly, even when the bar was busy. 

We often end up here on Friday nights and it''s fast becoming our favourite stop for work drinks. It's busy but you can get served qjickly, there's a great atmosphere and it's open late! On a few occasions we've ended up downstairs, dancing through to the early hours, after what was meant to be 'just a couple' of quick drinks. 

I totally forgot about this place! Used to come here (many) years back when working around the corner at Top Man. It's kinda changed but has kept it's charm. Looks a bit dated from outside, and even feels a bit of a polished dive bar inside; but there's an undeniable warmth to the place, helped along by the young attractive hipster staff that actually remember how to have a personality and smile (a rarity in the West End!).

I somehow ended up in the basement and on the dancefloor at 1am, and even more surprisingly did not feel old! My friends tell me they had a marvellous selection of beers too - but that not being my thing I made do with the cooking wine which (obviously) did the job.

Not in these parts too often these days, and really don't get out much - so thanks for making the 2 day hangover worthwhile.

Love it! Great atmosphere in the pub upstairs, wide range of beers and good food. Plus loads of great events in the venue. From Feeling Gloomy's David Bowie and Pulp specials and their new Indie, Rock night 'All My Friends' to comedy nights with Rich Hall, Frankie Boyle and lots more. Best place to go if you're in Central.


If like me the thought of going out for a night in central fills you with a nauseating feeling of impending dread, fear not The Phoenix is not that bad.  Yes it's just off Oxford Street and busy, sweaty, and overpriced.  However The Phoenix redeems itself with a selection of club nights in the basement bar.  We went to the David Bowie Feeling Gloomy night and while it was full of drunk 20 year olds snogging on the dance floor, it had that comforting familarity, like meeting an old friend in your University town Wetherspoons.  A worthwhile night for when you're in need of a good ol' sweaty dance at an indie disco.

Finding a good pub near Oxford Street is harder than it seems. Luckily, there's the Phoenix. Tucked behind the back of John Lewis, it's always got happy folk having an after work drink and a good atmosphere.

As you can expect, it's pricey for what it is. Sure, it's a nice place, but the girls loos are shoddy and the drinks aren't the most diverse. But it's a reliable place to take friends or dates and it's never done me wrong. 

If it seems a little busy, stick with it. The crowd at the Phoenix are a "quick pint" kind of crew. A table will open up soon enough.

Nice pub around the back of Oxford Street, particularly good for a post-shopping cool down; Eg. "I can't believe I tried on a little under 40 pairs of Chelsea boots today, and I still think I should've bought the first pair" type thing...

The craft cocktails are great, a fiver if you get them between 4 and 7pm on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays. 'Dusk' is really good - Vodka, jasmine tea and white peach = yummy!

Amazing quiz nights, even have their own resident rapper to sing out mystery pop star biographies. Good night all in all.
