About The Joker

The Joker is as much about having a great time in brilliant company with the tastiest food and the most refreshing ale.

The interior includes a commissioned, large wooden sculpture of the comedy and tragedy dramatic masks, a rare oddity in the original 10 feet high clock which featured on the cover of the Oasis album "Be Here Now", and which formed part of the band’s stage show.

The Joker of Penton Street, which trades from midday to 3 am, promises to be a welcoming, interesting and fun loving place whatever the time.

    5 Booked Function Room for Minimum Spend event for 40 guests

    I've been trying to find words to describe how amazingly everything went, but I have no words. When I booked the venue, I had issues with my payment (transferring money from another country) and they were patient and helpful with me. Every email I sent, I got a fast and helpful response back. Roxy helped me with everything I needed.

    The actual event came and I had planned nothing. The staff were really helpful setting up my party.

    I loved the vibe in the function room. The room was fantastic. Our own bar, chairs and tables that we could use, big windows so full of light and sound system where I could plug in my own phone to play music. Everything I wanted from the party venue and more.

    The bar staff were just amazing. They made us feel welcome, handled a card machine issue beautifully and just made the party even more fun! When my friends surprised me with a cake, the bar staff helped them set it up and it came as a full surprise to me.

    Food was sooo good and there was enough of it. I ordered food for 30 people, there was 15 of us, but because the party lasted long, everything was eaten. Everything the vegan plate had were amazing, especially the burgers, and the people who ate the meat were really happy too.

    I just cannot recommend this place enough. If you want a function room full of personality with amazing staff and catering.

    It's not because of the venue, it's a tagvenue website issue I think, but I wasn't able to pay with my foreign credit card. But I cannot blame the venue for this at all.

    The staff were really friendly and professional, we had our own bar which stocked everything we needed. All the services were as advertised, it was a really nice room and a good location.

    Wouldn't have changed anything.

    4 Booked Function Room for Event Venue event for 30 guests

    - Good communication with venue rep (Richard) prior to event
    - Relaxed, trusting atmosphere at venue
    - Cosy, intimate upstairs venue for small celebration
    - Good food
    - Good selection of drinks

    - Sound system could have been better, occasional sound distortion through one large speaker
    - Issues connecting to weak wifi (for music streaming) caused some initial panic. Ultimately needed to get password for staff wifi, signal dropped occasionally during event. Venue was helpful with solution, but could've been a major problem if wifi had failed
    - No projector was available as advertised. Wasn't essential for our evening, but could've caused problems if we had planned to use

    4.6 Booked Function Room for Pub event for 50 guests

    The space was great - we were able to arrive earlier to decorate it how we wanted and play our own music, even til quite late on a Sunday! The staff were all really friendly and attentive, and Roxy was also great beforehand answering any questions I had and organising the food order. She was even going to order in extra Aperol Spritz's for us! Which we didn't go for in the end but she was willing to accomodate what we wanted. I booked it for a surprise 30th birthday of around 50 people and it went amazingly well, would definitely recommend this venue for a party. The food was really tasty too!

    The negatives are very minor things, as everyone really had an excellent time. We paid £50 to have the bartender in the private room, however the bar was quite small and didn't have all drinks available on tap so lots of people ended up going downstairs for drinks. Not a huge problem at all but could possibly be made clearer in the description that the upstairs bar is much smaller. The food we ordered was really tasty, however some of the portioning felt a bit small - this might be because it was brought out bit by bit rather than all in one go, so the party guests would descend on one plate at a time! Those are the only negatives, everything else was amazing!

    Perfect location in the centre of London for my 50th! Roxy was a superb planner and the staff and DJ were brilliant! Everyone enjoyed themselves thoroughly and I'm looking at having my 51st there next year! ;)

    That it all had to end at some time? :(
