Squaremeal Review of Crazy Bear (bar) ?

Part of a brand synonymous with reality TV careerists and tabloid high jinks, Crazy Bear's subterranean bar is the place for Fitzrovia folks with a fondness for knocking back cocktails and flashing the cash. ‘Weird and wonderful' interiors – all strip lighting, lipstick-red leather, ‘cute' snakeskin seating and mellow beats – sit comfortably with the glitzy cocktail menu, which is helpfully categorised into classic, contemporary and Champagne offerings. Bring some old-world glamour to proceedings with Crazy Bear's take on The Orient Express (vodka with Passoã liqueur, lychee, raspberry purée and fresh mint) or The Gatsby (Tanqueray gin with grapefruit juice and fig reduction). Sushi and small plates from the restaurant upstairs are available for grazing and service seems to have picked up of late – although the ‘freaky' mirrored-door toilets continue to confuse an unfortunate few.

Once inside, you are enveloped by striking colours and leather...

I've been there twice now, both for after work drinks and have been ‘greeted’ on the door by somebody jumping in front of me and blocking my path asking if I have a reservation. On being granted access to the hallowed basement I have received slow and pretentious service but served beautiful cocktails. Shame. The decor looks like the harem headquaters of a Russian billionaire (not in a good way) and the toilets aren't amusing or clever, just ridiculous. The bar staff watched me go into the kitchen...
