Guests Reviews of Bars for Groups on Tagvenue

Stephanie Sarrazin
Booked The Lutyens Bar at Revolution Leadenhall
I organised a business afterwork in the Vault at the Revolution Leadenhall. The organisation was great, Barbara was reactive and put together a personalised food and drink package for us. We were able to set up the room. We had great feedback on the day. Very nice place for an afterwork, I recommend.
Dominic Sheffield
Booked The Terrace at Near & Far Camden
Fantastic space, nice and open and set amongst a lovely bar in and easy to get to location. Service was fantastic and the staff were very attentive and understanding. Drinks and food were spot on and came out very quickly.
Bing Yi Lim
Booked Cocktail Bar at Sway
Amazing venue, bartenders and managers were extremely helpful. Cocktails were delicious and well-received by guests. The organisation process was very smooth and trouble-free.
Thomas Cunningham
Booked Cellar Bar at The King's Head Pub
Very flexible and accomodating when we requested to move furniture around to fit our requirements. The space is a good size for an event of 60 or so, and no one had to wait long to be served drinks. <2 minute walk from Green Park Station, and great surrounding area with easy access to other areas after the event has ended. Would definitely book again.
Izzy Kingsley
Booked Soda Room at The Botanist Broadgate Circle
Loved the space and thought it was a really great atmosphere, despite it being just a little tight for 150 guests. Thought the food and drinks selection was brilliant. Photobooth was a hit with our guests! Hannah was helpful throughout the booking and organisation stages. Thanks for a great party!
Kiran Birring-Sandhu
Booked Birdcage at Bird of Smithfield
Brilliant sized venue with lots of character. Great that we had our own bar and could play our own music too!
