Amazing experience. Came into to cafe royal hotel and the green bar was just over to the left. Received a warm welcome and sat in a lovely location with the bar behind me, so great to get some cute pictures. Arranged this for my partner...as he turned 50 at midnight (17th june) and he is a huge absinthe fan. There was a great selection of absinthe available and some gorgeous absinthe cocktails. (And lots of none absinthe related drinks but we were there for the green stuff). We had some cocktails and were given some complimentary almonds and olives, which were delicious, not usually an olive fan but they were lovely. We also ordered some small plate food and it was delicious. The service was second to none. We were served by Sam and another guy (who's name I didn't catch). They were both super professional and friendly. They are an absolute testament to the business. I asked Sam about places open after midnight as we knew the green bar closed at midnight (my partners birthday) and it was a Sunday, he gave me some recommendations which was so helpful. He then brought my partner a glass of prosecco for his bday and we were able to stay in the bar to welcome in my partners bday. It absolutely made my partners night. We were both so impressed, we asked Sam where we could give some feedback about the service we've received. So Sam, if you see this, thanks so much... we had a great time and you and the team took such good care of us. Although the booking was intended as being a one off for a special occasion....after our experience we will be back every time we head down to London!. Amazing!!More

Amazing! Unbelievable! Overwhelming, Unforgettable experience ! All of these words and more don't come close how incredible this establishment is, we went for the evening for drinks, (a very fine selection of absinthe) and food to celebrate an event, and honestly what makes the night...aside from the venue is the staff, namely Sam, friendly, charming, professional, a great sense of humour and someone who just simply shines at what he does, no words! Sam thankyou for making our night, you made it so pleasurable and enjoyable! you will not be forgotten, thankyou so much!More

Beautiful bar, feels very elegant. Service was great and didn’t have to wait long for drinks. They specialise in Absinthe cocktails but have a vast menu of other cocktails and will make any classic. Free snacks on the table. £18-20 for a cocktail so not...cheap but totally worth it. Would recommend and will be back. ThanksMore

Fab place to watch the world go by and try some unique cocktails. Not usually fan of absinthe but dared to try a couple of the signature drinks. My partner's better than mine but both really quite delicious. Great staff but took a long time...to get served and get our bill, only two bartenders on at 5.30-7pm was probably too little, and disappointingly, reception a little hesitant to help get us a taxi at the end... felt they were a little put out by the request. £95 for 4 cocktails (plus 15% service), so you definitely know you're in London when you get the bill! Lovely experience for a special occasion.More
