Light Bar


The Light Bar is a unique and breathtaking space that takes the concept of atmospheric lighting to new heights. Guests gather to sip the now famous cocktails, such as Raspassion Martini, Lighten Up Champagne, Strawberry Cheesecake and Lychee and Elderflower Collins, snack on Asia de Cuba delights, chat and people watch in a series of cozy niches that are bathed in warmly vibrant shafts of colored light - pink, orange, violet, and green.

The walls are hung with enormous black & white close-up photographs of people making funny expressions, taken by renowned photographer Jean Baptiste Mondino, which lend the Light Bar its bold yet distinctly light-hearted touch. On Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights, some of London's hottest DJ's are featured.

We visited Light Bar while staying at St Martins Lane and it had some of the best drinks I have ever had and I am a cocktail aficionado. The bar was not that crowded when we went and my wife rated it the best Pimm's cup of all the places we tried. I had some tropical cocktails and all were expertly made and served in super cool tiki glasses. Anyone can visit the bar and it is on the first...more

Went to the cinema last night and wanted to go for a couple of drinks afterwards in a not so packed/touristy area. I've been to Light Bar before on nights out with various companies so knew what it was like. It's inside the St Martins Lane Hotel opposite the entrance. Walking through the glass panels, you enter a darkened room, chairs and tables lining each side, a regular bar of sorts partway...more

Has to be one of the strangest settings I've been to with the various faces on the top walls showing all sorts of different emotions. At first glance, it is a bit startling, but after some time then you don't notice them. Dimly lit overall with candle light being the source of light with the lounge settings.

It's a different feel during the weekday nights versus the weekend fun. Weekday...more

Needed a place to meet my coworkers while in London and wanted to go to somewhere in Shoreditch so we picked Light Bar. Had a lively scene going on though I have a feeling that it would be way more fun in the summer. It served our purpose but wasn't anything memorable this time around.more

What a great little bar inside the St Martin's Lane Hotel. Yes, one should expect a dope bar inside a Morgan's Group hotel, but hotel bar to me conjures up images of cookie cutter decor and drab spaces filled with creepy businessmen and cougars.

Not Light Bar. Although a bit on the small side, there were always a lot of large groups, huddled around tables boozing it up, having a great time....more
