We spent Saturday evening at Wax Jambu for a friend's birthday. She had reserved a space which was great as the bar was soon packed and a long queue appeared outside. The decor is quite eclectic; Swiss chalet meets loft conversion (lots of exposed brick and dark wood panelling). We didn't eat anything or see any food being eaten but were rather disappointed by the standard of the drinks. It took ages to get served at the bar and the cocktails were a real let down. A mint julep was rather watery and lacked any mint. In fact, it bore very little resemblance to any one I've ever had before; at £7, I felt I'd paid well over the odds for a mediocre drink. While the place has a good vibe, the music was too loud to make conversation and I don't think we'll be rushing back. There are much better bars along Upper Street.
