About

Rupert Street is Soho's most popular bar, ideally located right in the heart of all the action. Open 7 days a week, by day it is a relaxing & calm space, But by night the venue really comes alive with the most metrosexual crowd you will find anywhere, plenty of eye candy & that's not just the sexiest looking bar team around!! At weekends the bar showcases the best of London's D.J. talent, with Alessandro Londra, resident every Sunday and a massive list of D.J.'s on rotation every Saturday night, Gonzalo, Paul Heron, Oliver M,Brent Nicholls, Alessandro Londra,DJ Saki, Doug Silva, Sharon O Love ,Leonardo Golvibes, Steven Artis, Sevrino, Minx, Rich B.

Not sure if this place is discriminatory towards straight people but my friend and I were made to feel VERY unwelcome by the hostile bar staff who took eons to serve us, so much so that after one drink (a strangely very weak vodka and tonic in my case) we left and went across the road to The Yard, which I would totally recommend. When we asked if we could talk to the manager about the service we were told "He isn't available" and then, much quieter "And he won't care". Not sure if we were meant to here this snide comment or not but we both did.Do yourself a favour: skip this place and go somewhere friendlier.EDIT: wow, what a horrible reply from an unrepentant little manager who clearly doesn't give a toss about customer service, especially from two straight women. Misogynistic? Irrefutably. Short? Probably.EDIT 2: suggest whatever you want, you arrogant little wretch. Unless you have a tiny IQ you will already have noted that I'd rather eat razor blades in a dirty sock than visit your tawdry little pit again. Anywhere where the manager talks to customers the way you do is definitely somewhere to avoid.Oh, and a little tip for you, if you want someone to email you, perhaps you should, you know, include your email address? LOL.

Loveliest bar i’ve been to. The music is always on point and the cocktails are delicious ( and i can’t forget the full 5hrs of 2 for £12.00 cocktails). The staff are really fun and caring, always interacting with customers. The air conditioning is great for inside and the outside has a good amount of seats & tables for customers. I would highly recommend going to this bar, I am certain you won’t be disappointed!

Stunning venue, great staff and music. I believe I was served by James and Connor at the bar and both were really friendly and professional. 10/10 vibes and the prosecco is a sure party starter.

Rude/Inhospitable-- AVOID.Two friends and I walked into this bar and a cheery bartender happily served us a round of drinks. But within five minutes the music stopped and harsh lights came on. Although it was suddenly quite insalubrious, we were only a fraction of the way through our drinks and attempted to continue our conversation. In short order two different staff members told us to leave, saying the bar was closing. Then someone we assumed was an overserved patron parroting or mocking the staff swept through the room barking “Could you all please f**king leave.” When a third staff member instructed us to leave I suggested that they ought not to sell drinks to unsuspecting customers and then immediately boot them out. I was told to take it up with the manager…who it turns out was actually the “drunk customer” we had seen yelling moments prior. Many of the staff at this bar are unprofessional and the place is completely inhospitable. Door and/or bar staff should have advised us that the venue was closing imminently; instead they greedily took our money. It is due to experiences like this that as a Londoner I usually avoid Soho like the plague, especially on weekends. I would advise others to do the same.I rarely write negative reviews but this entire experience was absurd and galling.

Went here to celebrate my 40th birthday after being double booked at my previous venue. The manager Sam went out of his way to create a space for me and my guests at 5 minutes notice. Great cocktails, amazing bar staff and top music. My mum absolutely hates bars but is begging me to take her again. Truly a night to remember. Thank you Sam @ the bar team

Great bar, and great staff.I booked the place for my friend's birthday and I can say that I've had such a lovely experience.Truly recommend and I also must mention Louis the staff behind everything, he was super lovely and attentive to everyone showing such a kindness for the clients.The Dj is also something to highlight, such an amazing mix of disco, funky and house very well played.

We always visit this bar a number of times whenever we're in London. A fantastic ambiance and equally fantastic staff. A great place in the centre of London to sit in the late afternoon, enjoy a drink and watch the world go by outside.

Fantastic LGBT bar in the centre of Soho. Come in any time 7 days a week and it's always fun and games. The bar is super close to Piccadilly circus so easy to get to and home 🙂

What a great bar! The drag cabaret on a Thursday is a great addition to this soho favourite.We always come here for cocktails before the theatre as it perfectly located in the west end

Gotta love paying £10 for a "drink" that was literally water. Both my husband and I took a few drinks, and couldn't taste anything. It was overpriced, underwhelming, and the bartender looked incredibly lost. There are far superior bars just around the corner.Don't waste your time (or your money) at this place.

I don’t go out often but when I do I always find myself at this gorgeous bar. It has such a great atmosphere as well as friendly staff, most recently I had the pleasure of being served by young Lewis who ensured that I was served efficiently and with great customer care. You are guaranteed to have a laugh here and meet new people & be surrounded by friendly faces.

Only commercial beers on tap. The only interesting was out.Cocktails only with Prosecco or Mojitos. Boring.

I really enjoyed the atmosphere in the bar. I was served by a short Mediterranean/latino older man initially who was more concerned about the speed he was serving me rather than any customer service; however my experience was turned around when the younger member of the team named Lewis served me. He was very polite, engaging and his cocktails were spot on!! It wasn’t busy and I really appreciated Lewis taking the time to ask me about my day and my plans that evening. Excellent service and I look forward to coming back.

Covid measures in place make it feel very safe and the staff are always vigilant to stop others mixing and breaking the rules. Great service from all bar staff, friendly service with a smile during these unprecedented times

Rupert Street Bar has been a firm favourite of mine for the last couple of years. During my most recent visit I was impressed with how safe, clean and ‘COVID Secure’ it felt. My friends and I were seated promptly by Sam, the Bar Manager, and we received excellent and attentive customer service at our table by Patrick throughout the evening. It felt good to be able to go out-out again; my friends and I would definitely recommend Rupert Street Bar as a great place to chill out and unwind and watch the world go by. Looking forward to my next visit already. Thanks for having us!

20-some thing body of workers member who hates his task....I order a 75£ bottle of champagne and he acts so inconvenienced. I blame the supervisor for now not having a pulse on his workforce. (Oct 30 Saturday night time shift at eight pm, operating the outside tables) thanks men for the splendid enjoy!

Enjoyed my birthday party over the weekend which I booked online. Had a nice open space to accommodate everyone (20 guests) and drinks, especially the cocktails are really reasonably priced. Take one star off as one staff member tending to our table could have been nicer instead of scowling at me when I ordered through him, but we also had a new member work our table too who was lovely. Thanks so much for a great experience.
