SquareMeal Review of Via

If bars could talk, this rambling dockside hangout would doubtless tell some cracking tales about office drinks gone awry. It’s just the kind of place where a quick pint of Guinness or Beck’s & a game of pool after work turns into a long night of cheeky Vimtos, slippery nipples & Jägermeister shots with just the one plate of nachos between the lot of you. Set within a majestic Georgian warehouse, Via is a highly useful, all-purpose venue boasting extensive terrace seating, a VIP area, games room & some quieter corners for eating & drinking during office hours too. Expect populist international tucker – from Thai green curry or blackened chicken to fish & chips, backed by an easy-going wine list with Champagne under £60, even at the top end.

Unfortunately happened upon this bar last week on our works party night out, frankly it killed the evening. They open the doors on one side of the bar when their club opens. Blocking this off with a curtain offers nothing in the way of installation on a cold December night, so what was a relatively pleasant spot becomes very unpleasant, very quickly. As we had just ordered some bar snacks and couldn't move to a different place it was quite annoying. The bar snacks were horrendous when they arrived, but maybe they think they can serve crap to people as they will be inebriated to notice. The management clearly didn't give two hoots when issues raised. I realise I am maybe at a time when I expect more from a restaurant/bar but may be not, it shouldn't be so hard to look after your clients, even just a little bit. You have been warned

Myself and a few of the girls went to VIA for some well needed end of week drinks!! We were having such a fab time we were there untill 1am !!! We were absolutley blown away by the atmosphere created in this very unique venue the place was buzzing, we had no idea there was a night club untill one of their friendly staff informed us, since then I have raved to all my friends about VIA and we have now reserved a table for the next Friday night out so we dont miss out!!! wonderful service and great prices overall 10/10 evening!
