Craig and Maks were fantastic in helping me organise a truly memorable 50th birthday party in the Basement Bar of The Oxford Arms. Craig was brilliant in assisting me in the preparation for the night, answering all queries promptly and always being clear and helpful. He was also very welcoming during a couple of site visits. On the night Maks and his team were brilliant. I have had loads of great feedback from guests on the venue in the days since the party - perfect size, location and facilities.

Honestly - couldn’t fault it.

Craig was super helpful and quick to respond to any of my questions and needs. On the actual night, the bar staff were very nice and made good drinks/cocktails. Bar service was super fast. The basement bar its self is a hidden gem. Good space/layout with own bar, entrance, cloakroom and toilets. Good venue capacity. Highly recommended!

Drink prices are a little expensive but due to central London location.

Looking for a venue in Central London then look no further. Great space with everything you'd need. Delicious food, exquisite cocktails and most importantly friendly / helpful staff.

I enjoyed an absolutely fabulous 50th Birthday party at The Oxford Market Bar. It's a superb venue located in the heart of Central London, just a short walk from Oxford Circus underground. The bar has a lot of character and offers a great party space, with bar, cloakroom and toilets for your guests. The event manager Craig, was superb in answering my questions regarding the party arrangements, and everything I asked for was executed brilliantly on the night. The bar staff and manager Max, provided fabulous service making sure everything went to plan on the night. The party food was absolutely delicious, and really good sized portions of food. I would highly recommend The Oxford Market Basement Bar as a perfect party space, and I couldn't have found a better venue to celebrate my 50th Birthday. Thank you to all the team for making it a most memorable night. I'm glad I found the venue through Tag Venue.

The only disappointing part was the security guy on the door. Some of my guests said he wasn't particularly friendly. Apparently he was quite challenging with my guests who had brought bottles of Fizz or alcohol as presents. The presents that were alcohol all had to be taken from my guests and stored in the office. Also at the end of the night the security guy was quite pushy in getting us all out, which he didn't need to be. Although this didn't spoil the night it was just slightly disappointing given that the rest of the night was fantastic.
