Possibly the most shocking experience I have ever had in a bar.We were drawn in by the 2-4-1 signs on cocktails paraded outside the bar. On entry there was flies circling the establishment but didn’t pay too much attention as it was a really warm day.After waiting 20 minutes at the bar (there was only two people in front of me), we were told there was no 2-4-1 on cocktails despite all the signs - none of them saying there was restrictions.The bartenders were perhaps the most inexperienced bartenders I have ever seen. Being a bartender myself I understand the stress of a busy Saturday but for it to not even be all that busy there was no need for the slowness and rudeness of the bar staff.The cocktails ended up tasting like water and were not at all enjoyable for how much they were. The staff also said they did not do mojitos despite being on the menu as it was reserved for a ‘cocktail day’ - again no indication anywhere for a ‘cocktail day’.Such a shame as it is a great location to stop and have a drink.

The bartender was deceiving me and my friend, he and I constantly ordered 2 drinks, and he constantly made a different amount always ,My friend and I were surprised by such service, he was probably used to drunk guests of the establishment, I advise you to change your job to a “pickpocket”, a man of Indian-Pakistani appearance on Saturday after 00 at night in a black shirt, When we told him about this he said “sorry, sorry, I misunderstood”, We constantly get notifications from the bank dude, next time I hope someone punches you in the face

Yesterday on NYE I had a very nice experience at Circa Embankment. Good music, fireworks views and the place was not over crowded and it was not empty, just was perfect. I will repeat for sure 🤗

Went down to finally check out Megawoof tonight as never been before. The night is advertised on its website as “every Friday night”. Well, it’s clearly not. The place seems to have shut down. Could have spared a wasted trip by letting us know!

My first time here was actually really nice, I found the club really stylish, spacious and well maintained. The staff is kind, the music was blasting and really good, and the prices are also very affordable in any London terms. I definitely will come back here 🤩

The service was brilliant, Antonio the barman/waiter was really helpful and made us feel really comfortable and went the extra mile to make sure we enjoyed our afternoon.

Our “premium seating” had an excellent view of this wall. Unfortunately, the performers were on the other side of it. Luckily we didn’t miss much because the show lasted about 3 total songs.We saw 3 other tables complain about their ripoff view as well. Totally understand there’s limited seating at a socially distanced event, but just don’t sell tickets “with a view” if it’s going to be of this wall.Staff confirmed that guests are frequently disappointed but that the management doesn’t care. I’m leaving this negative review per their recommendation.Support your local queens, just don’t expect to actually see them at Circa.

We had the best time at Circa, Sam our waiter was so lovely and it was an absolute vibe. Couldn’t recommend it more. You feel safe and welcome for anyone.

Exactly what we've come to expect from Circa - a great place with outside tables in the sun.They're amazing with walk-ups as well as if you've booked ahead. The heaters are so good post lockdown! Great for drinks and catching up with friends.
