Very close to Embankment station and located over two floors, Opal Bar is solely recommended for the 'Happy Hour' that runs every day from 5 til 7pm (half price beers and wine plus specials on the cocktails). The upstairs bar is quite small and often gets busy (with limited views of the Thames), so it can can be hard to get a table sometimes. The basement bar is more of a club, with no draft beer on tap.
the events team was very helpful in my pursuit of booking an area for my
birthday drinks before and after we enjoyed the Comedy Boats Show nearby on R.S
Hispaniola. The location was ideal and they offer large booths which can be
reserved at reasonable prices (which you then receive back as a bar tab – WINNING!).
This was well organised and all taken care for me, they even included balloons
and a bottle of bubbles complimentary for us which certainly went down well and
was a nice touch! My friends and I had a great time here and will be returning
for the great happy hour deal which is available even on a Saturday evening 5pm
– 8pm, I recommend the share sized Pornstar Martini for value for money with
added novelty ;)
