SquareMeal Review of Simmons Fitzrovia

Joining its equally quirky, wee siblings in King’s Cross and Camden, Simmons’ latest kick-back lounge is neatly ensconced in prime residential Fitzrovia. A jolly mix of junky 60s lamps and garish gewgaws from car-boot sales set the scene for a range of fruity, flirty, if not entirely convincing cocktails – our syrupy Margarita and a too-sweet, one-dimensional Cosmopolitan probably wouldn’t cut it in more swanky ‘Hollywood comes to London’ hangouts. That said, there’s plenty to enjoy here, from banging DJ sets and a basement bar with retro arcade games to secluded nooks and unbeatable daily drinks deals (4-9pm). With teapot cocktails at £15, wines from a tenner and beers sold for same price as a copy of The Sunday Times, this Fitzrovia playground promises fun and boozy evenings galore.

1 star is too generous! I do not recommend Simmons Fitzrovia. DREADFULLY DISAPPOINTING. APPALLINGLY RUDE bar staff. Went there on a Saturday night and will AVOID it in future. Encountered an unpleasant bar man who was clearly aiming to win THE WORST CUSTOMER SERVICE award of London. Considering that we were there early in the evening and it wasn't busy, he was unnecessarily DISRESPECTFUL to us. We left after sampling a little of our one drink; a pathetic poor imitation of a mojito (there was no alcohol in it!?). Bar men like him only add a bad experience to London's Nightlife.
