A sleek urban bar with a vibrant atmosphere and a hotspot for suits mixed with hens party affliates.

Not the best service on arrival (if it takes longer than 7 minutes for me to even order a drink I start getting angsty) but once they got into the flow of things I was happy.

We were originally placed on a long narrow rectangular table which made it feel like we were attending a board...more

I was there for the first time in January when they did a 50% OFF promotion. I immediately liked the industrial design interior. The lucky streak continued with delicious cocktails.

Lovely Cocktail bar that is much more sophisticated than the average pub in central London. The crowd is friendly, young and full of energy. They have an extensive cocktail menu with delicious wine choices to compliment. While visiting there was also a DJ playing music making it a very lively atmosphere.more

Having never been to Abacus, some friends and I ended up at its new incarnation, Forge, a few months back. It's conveniently located in the city, but was laid back and but not too crowded when we visited at around midnight on a Friday.
