A Chic Boutique Cocktail Bar, within the streets of Chinatown next to Leicester Square

Average Reviews


If you're in the mood for a chill night out in Soho, Ku Lounge is the place to hit up. Nestled in the heart of London's LGBT scene, this spot is all about good vibes and great drinks. Think of it as your laid-back, fancy yet unpretentious hangout.

First things first, the cocktails here are the real deal. The espresso martini comes highly recommended, and they've got a happy hour that's worth every penny. And let's talk about the ambiance – it's got this cool mix of luxury and comfort that just works. Whether you're out with your squad or flying solo, the vibe here is welcoming and lively.

The staff at Ku Lounge deserve a shoutout. They're super friendly and know their stuff when it comes to mixing drinks. Plus, they add to the whole relaxed atmosphere of the place. Now, if you're into more than just sitting and sipping, Ku Lounge has got you covered with their cabaret, drag shows, and DJ nights. It's never a dull moment here.

Location-wise, Ku Lounge is easy to find. Just a short walk from Leicester Square, you're right in the mix of Soho's best – theaters, shops, you name it. It's the perfect start (or end) to a night out in London.

The Ku Bar is one of my favourite spots around Soho. The staff are incredibly friendly and welcoming and you'll find the atmosphere is always one where you can feel at ease - doesn't hurt that it's great for enjoying a drink on a warm and sunny day.My reason for this review is because I was impressed with the levels of assistance from the Hr & Office Manager, Amy. She was attentive and very quick with answering my questions when booking a 10 person booth for the Eurovision screening. The result was a great night and everyone left very happy.

Nice little lounge, we got our drinks fast. Place was packed so it was hard to find a seat. Nice design, though I gashed my leg on the corner of one of the tables. DJ was cool but the music was way too loud for a place that doesn't have dancing.

All the staff at KU were amazingly helpful, kind and generous with their time. We had a great party and I could not fault the place.

Had drinks there on an early Saturday evening. Entertained by a drag show with cocktails included for £10. Totally worth it. Come a bit early to have comfortable seats as the space can get packed quick.

Ku Bar is a vibrant LGBTQ+ bar in London's Soho district. It has a lively atmosphere, inclusive ambiance, and captivating entertainment. The staff is friendly and attentive, and the DJs spin a diverse range of music. Ku Bar is a safe and welcoming space for everyone.

Went to ku around 19.00 a Saturday. It was quite empty. We ordered 2 cocktails which took 30 minutes to get. And the taste of the cocktails was not worth the time or the money. We will not come back.

I love the revamp. Much more open and more accessible to get around.The club downstairs is lovely.Not much interest in cocktails upstairs; they should be more assertive on that side.

Greeted as soon as we walk to the door, everyone was so friendly and looked amazing. Had a couple of cocktails and shots that were really good, definitely recommend the lychee cocktail!

My friends and I went to Ku-bar over a week or two ago to catch up over a few bottles of MOET ROSE CHANDON.The evening started off beautifully with lots of jokes, catching up and laughing away.After 7 to 8 bottles of MOET ROSE CHANDON, few cans of red bull and sparkling water with a bit of a misunderstanding with the waitress, the waitress behaviour was some what unpalatable so was the rest of the team which cut our evening short.My friends and I had a very, very bad experience leaving a bitter taste in our mouths.I don't think they know their audience very well, or they just need proper training or possibly should be trained all over.Lady Watson

Such a disappointment of place. Disgraceful bartenders. Bouncer argued with me because he thought I was drunk when I clearly wasn't, he tried to deny our entry when there was no reason whatsoever but his own minimal power of bouncer, poor guy. Music just ok, forgettable place.

Great drinks, I really enjoyed the lotus drops and long island ice tea. Don't worry if a cocktail you like isn't on the menu, the bar staff may be able to make it for you anyways. I enjoyed the music playing, there was K/DA and a vocal cover of crazy frog that I really enjoyed. The waitress was very nice and provided great service to everyone and seemed very friendly and always happy to help. At 9 or 10, I don't remember when, a drag show was hosted and was a very fun experience, Snow White Trash was the performer's name, great singing and saxophone playing, great comedy she was very funny, and got the crowd involved as well. The seats were comfortable and the establishment was very well presented. This was all on the first floor, not the ground floor, I was not able to see if there were any accessibility options available.

Interesting venue on Thursday’s apparently. I came because they were rated high for cocktails not knowing what other event was going on. It’s in a great part of town (Asian influence) and this particular night there was a drag show. I still had a good time and I’d come back.

Great vibe in center of soho. Cocktails taste great and have a good variety. Bartenders are full of personality and are, cheeky (which Is a nice touch).

Ground floor was always meant to be more casual, music videos playing. Upstairs was obviously catered for a more up market clientele who wanted to sit down and chat, have cocktails and have waitress service, it's even called a lounge, then why play loud music? Hardly sophisticated. Otherwise great place since they done the place up a few years ago.

Classy spot for some great cocktails and the steam buns are a must have.

Great venue. Quieter during the week, but plenty of space per table, you dont have to shout over music to be heard, staff are friendly and approachable, heated outdoor smoking area. Got a complimentary round of shots for my birthday too
