I've vowed never to go here again. In fact, I was a sucker to go twice. There is a certain waitress in there who is so, so rude it is actually funny. Low carb menu but the staff have no concept of what this means. Don't go, save your money or spend it somewhere else. Don't bother using their website's feedback section as your email will be ignored.

This bar is known as Vodka Revolution. Its main drink is vodka. It doesn't serve beer. Why is this on BITE?

That having been said, it's not a chav bar at all - not particularly cheap and, while busy, not an unpleasant place by any means. Seems to cater to office workers in the area and people going out in Soho at the weekend.

Just don't go. End of story. Got my laptop nicked in there. Despite theft being prevalent in there (admitted by the bar manager to me-something like a dozen bags a week they said) they have CCTV that doesn't cover most of the bar. When I reported it to the bouncers they were extremely unhelpful and quite rude about it. Oh, and the drinks are overpriced; it's hot and sticky in there; and it takes ages to get served smaller than correct measures of cocktails.

Definately recommended at weekends and late night during the week as busy and lively atmosphere (but you won't get a seat!). Nice place to sit and relax during the day too as the seats are spacious and the decor is excellent. The service and staff vary. Beware...Sometimes service is non existant and you have to wait ages to get served!! last time I went in, there was no one behind the bar and I had to wait 10 minutes before someone showed up!! Also sometimes staff come around offering you a vodka from a tray and as you are about to sip it (thinking its a tester) you suddenly get charged so beware of that one! Can be pricey to but if you order a tray of vodkas you soon forget about that! Good chillout place and worth going in if your passing it :)

Truly dreadful - but what would you expect of a chav chain bar?

A fair variety of Vodka, great music but really packed. A little bit of a snotty croud, but easy enough to ignore.

Went there for a mate's b'day last week and it was carnage. THE place to go if you wanna get wrecked! Smart decor and unaffected by townies who plague the other Revolution branches.

Great place for shooting flavored vodka. Very busy but then that's a good thing. Prices are very reasonable considering the location. Would reccomend it for sure....

I wanted to go here for my birthday but after having an email from them, I was told NO Dancing!! err.. Has anyone else been & seen any dancing going on.. most ppl would find it difficult to go there get plasered and celebrate without putting a few moves in here & there! Tell me they were wrong?? Please!!?? Is the music any good?

Great Place full of people with that Friday feeling. Start the long night off here.

A good venue for a night out. Modern bar with excellent decor and vibe. Only downside is finding it - it's set on a side street off Dean Street.

I had an excellent night in Revolution for my Birthday. A big thank you to Management who were excellent. Good decor and atmosphere. Would recommend the pitchers which were reasonably priced and good for a group to share, and if you are up for a party -try the vodka shots!

Probably the worst revolution I've encountered. Try the one in Newcastle - much better location and atmosphere.
There's always a queue to get in here and the service is shit

Went early 6pm, got a great table, didnt have the food, but had a very fun evening. Very attentive staff, prices quite reasonable and easy to get to / stagger back from !

Watch out for the 79% vodka! Does good food & lots of different flavoured vodkas. Book a table in advance if you expect to sit down!
