About The Blind Phoenix London
From the creators of The Cauldron, this quirky and luxurious cocktail bar is themed around Magic and speakeasies of the 1920's.
The Blind Phoenix serves some of the most unique concoctions in London delivering artisanal drinks with an interactive twist. Test your bartender to make magic in a glass, or check out your very own magic to deliver your favourite classic libations with a flick of the wrist.
I was really looking forward to an evening here, after reading about it, but unfortunately we were very disappointed with our experience. The cocktails were nice enough, if a little pricey, but we were expecting a bit more flair/effects/magic from a bar that described itself as a molecular cocktial bar serving unique concoctaions with "an interactive twist". We still aren't sure what the interactive twist was? While they made use of lots of dry ice, we were expecting something a bit more different, and having more of a "wow" factor, aside from looking forward to the interactive aspect which we didn't get. The bar descibes itseld as "themed around Magic" and a "wizard themed speakeasy" but the atmosphere and decorations was just normal speakeasy/bar. There was no magical or wizard theme and so it was disappointing that this just turned out to be a standard "speakeasy". Our waiter was also very slow and forgot our drinks on a number of occassions. We weren't in a hurry, so we didn't not mind this too much, but on top of the disappointing experience this was more irratating than it otherwise would have been. Overall I would not recommnd this bar to anyone based ont he magic/wizard them and experience. It is fine if you just want a nice cocktail but other than that it is nothing special unfortunately.
I seriously love this place! I've been several times now and the everything is always amazing. Great service, great atmosphere and the cocktails are the best I've ever tasted. We were even given two rounds of free shots. Can't wait to come back again.
Came here with a Timeout voucher and although my booking hadn't registered with the bar, the staff were so accommodating. Really great service the entire night, the best service I've ever had! Cool venue and drinks but the staff were the stand out for me!
We enjoyed our evening at the Blind Phoenix. The drinks are fun and original. The service is very good.
It was amazing, super welcoming, staff were knowledgable and cocktails were delicious.
We had really great service given to us when our drinks were running behind. They were all really nice and welcoming. And I loved the set up of the bar, it was like a real speak easy. It was such a fun experience even with the little bit of the wait. Also the drinks were really great! Super cool and on point with the theme and not lacking in alcohol unlike some themed bars. I’d definitely like to visit again next time I am in London.
Quirky and delicious cocktails as well as attentive service from the waiter-whom was engaging throughout however upon departure one of the staff stopped us half way up the stairs to inform us of the service charge- with us having the Timeout Offer we had settled the bill before hand however when we asked to opt of the optional service charge- he was very rude in her demeanour specifying "staff do not work for free" this cast a shadow on what was a pleasant evening.
My friend and I went to the Blind Phoenix after some potion making at The Cauldron. The speakeasy bar far exceeded expectations! The cocktails were incredibly tasty and unique, and the staff were beyond helpful and friendly. I'll definitely be going back - it's a true gem!
Confusion over booking despite email confirmation. Cocktail choice limited and very dark inside, not sure why the £11 reservation cost is required.
All the staff were so lovely. And the drinks amazing!
Had a fantastic time, and the custom drinks were great
Great bad Excellent service Great drinks Highly recommend to any one
Staff super friendly ! Magic atmosphere and great magic machine ! It was so much fun ! Thank you
Very very hot in there. But everything else was amazing.
Strange place but fun a bit pricey for a casual night maybe more a special occasion
Unique venue/location. Relaxed ambiance. Server was welcoming. Cocktail descriptors were amusing.
Nice drink and friendly staff
We attended this venue when it was Elephant and Castle, so a much different experience for us. Very enjoyable, glad to see the toilet is much more themed and in good shape! The hosts were all absolutely lovely and accommodating! The drinks were fun and really good very good value as well. We attended after going to the Cauldron down the road. The host on the door was loads of fun as well!
Great Speakeasy Bar. Great cocktails.
Interesting place and very unusual cocktails. The staff was really friendly and the service was excellent and I also really enjoyed the self-service option with the Time Machine, that is really fun. I think it would be great if you added some food options (at least some snacks). The decor could also be made a bit more quirky to match the menu.
Decided to visit this place after seeing it on time out. Is a very cute and fun place to go for great drinks and wonderful service. Downside for me was that it was not close to where I live but was worth the travel and not far from the station.
That bartender was literally magic. And the waitress was so super nice, she pointed out all sulfite items on the menu so I could make an educated choice. But, really, go just to see the bartenders. You will not be dissapointed. They snatched them right out of Diagon mixology wizarding schools.
Booked on a Friday evening as a date night for my partner and I. Had purchased the timeout voucher which was an incredible deal. The service was really great, atmosphere on point and the cocktails were amazing! Presentation and flavour were fabulous. Have been recommending this place to friends all weekend, will definitely be returning! Thanks so much!
Awesome bar! Really nice vibe in there. Music is cool (reminds me of Fallout, if you're a gaming fan), cocktails taste amazing and the whole atmosphere is really comfortable. The service was great and we'll definitely be back again. 1.5hrs there is not long enough if you ask me
Food & Drink: Some interesting cocktails presented well and the fun Time Machine system that you use with a wand is fun. Skilled bartenders. Atmosphere: Really cool, great nods to different parts of the movies/books, interest photos etc and the drink names are inspired. Great props throughout. Service: Low point. The manager/head bartender was really too intense. We were a group of 4 women and he was rather intensely engaged all night and too touchy - every single time he came to the table. It was uncomfortable and one person took the brunt of it to avoid the rest of the group having to deal with it. Made some jokes in poor taste. We had messed up the booking and our bill was slightly more complex than necessary, but we continually got pulled into conversations about the bill, at the table, in front of the birthday girl. It got to be quite frustrating and distracting for the entire evening. Value for Money: The cocktails are absolutely fine, so are the cool bubbling shots. The Time Machine is cool, but they aren't very upfront with the prices. We messed up and poured a long Margarita but it ended up costing nearly £25. All in all: Fine, a fun night out and special for Potter fans. I won't be back, but I would recommend it to others.
