So is Katie Rogers happy now he has his way?
Zecora - 26 Aug 2008 20:53
Ha Ha - the reason Katie Rodgers used to comment on this place was it was one of the best bars Bexleyheath ever had. As because of the lack on management and poor excuse for service you have got what you deserve hardly any customers. You got rid of decent Dj's and quality service and thats that. Funny isn't original dj still there playing one night the best night you have every month maybe that should have told you something.
katierodgers - 1 Jun 2008 18:53
Bloody hell, whats happened to this place? I went on Friday 16th at around 9pm. Music far too loud (i like music in pubs but not at an earsplitting level) and there must have been at least 20 people in there.

Ages waiting for a drink (4 bar staff all making cocktails) and when leaning on the bar i had to peel myself off it because it was filthy. Very poor selection of drinks in there as well.

In closing, awful! Close it down!

Pretty poor on all fronts.The impression I was given was a class venue. Smoking at the entrance as there is no real smoking area, the bar is sticky and not wiped down during the night and behind the bar is worse. Floor is slippery and the staff lack communication skills. I like the idea of the staff drinking shots and toasting each other.
Pure class

Went to go in on Monday night, lights were on, staff were in there but the doors were locked. Guess they finally gave up on week night opening
anonymous - 6 Sep 2007 02:12
Popped in for a drink during day with a couple of mates, very loud music being played had to attract the barman attention who spoken very little English. I found it a very grubby and uninviting place. I have been there in the past during the evenings but you don't realise how dirty and run down it is.
No wonder nobody goes in there during the day!
anonymous - 22 Aug 2007 15:01
Bit rich to comment on anonymous comments when you to remain anoymous. Katie are you really a bloke or just a boy who should have been named Sue. Lighten up Zerobar is no worse then any bar in Bexleyheath, its about personal taste. There does seem to be some really bitter people out there...I would post my name but somebody may challenge my sex and that may come as a shock to my family. Hee he

oooh anonymous again....what a surprise
anonymous - 28 Jul 2007 12:59
Whats up with the stink in there? Was in there saturday and it smelt like someone had chucked up and someone had to disguise the smell with a cheap air freshner. Bring back smoking, least it wont smell of sick!
anonymous - 24 Jul 2007 12:56
Theres no denying that OHM and Zero cater for different people. Ohm probably 21-26 age bracket, above 26-35 for Zeros (Breeze / Affinity if you are over 40!)

Last time i went to Zeros there was a boogie wonderland night so i went upstairs.

Upstairs was a cheesy disco and i must i had a really good time although it did feel like a wedding reception.

Thankyou for the last person who posted on this message board. good points made about miss k rogers. We do realise that miss k rogers (and all her other alias names ) are from one person. He has an unhealthy obsession with zero bar and obviously has way too much time on his hands. Thankyou to all our loyal and genuine customers, keep coming back
anonymous - 16 Jun 2007 02:50
Why does KatieRodgers only seem to comment on Zero Bar? If you dis like it there so much why go there at all? There are so many places in Bexleyheath its not like you have to. My friends and I head down there most weekends, ok you get some very varied people there but it is a public place. We used to go OHM, which is a nice bar, but its all attitude and show where as Zero is very laid back and you can actually talk to random people in there without them thinking your starting a fight just by looking at them like most places in the area.

Also, why would Zero Bar want to speak to OHM and be exactly the same? Would it actually be BAD for business to both be fighting for the same people?

Katie, if you have a problem with people being diffrent and worried about what they wear, then there is a pro Natzi town down the road where they all have shaved heads and wear T shirts and jeans which would be more your sceen.

Zero Bar aint everyones cup of tea but thats why we like it. Bit busy early on, but later in the night its great, not too busy, easy to get served and some great songs. Ok I might not like EVERY song that gets played, but spend a fw hours in any bar and you wont like every song.
anonymous - 2 Jun 2007 13:49
Do the owners read these reviews and why do they not react. The manager dresses like a character out of Bugsy Mallone as a customer before you would have been turned away if you turned up dressed like that.
The floor behind the bar has come up so how clean can it be? The beach party was like a night out in Southend. Lacks class, a smoke machine what is that about? I suggest you speak to your sister bar OHM on how to run a theme night. Really quite poor for what used to be one of the better music bars in Bexleyheath.
katierodgers - 1 Jun 2007 12:58
Used to be one Bexleyheath better bars - Its falling apart, the roof has leaked, the floor tiles are missing and the standard of customer has reached a all time low. Do they let anybody in - I can hardly believe this is the same bar of a couple of years ago. Are there new owners?
anonymous - 19 Mar 2007 14:15
A real effort has been made to improve the surroundings and service but the music on a Friday is dreadful. Far too much cheese and annoyingly repetitive!
anonymous - 29 Jan 2007 07:54
was there xmas eve and had a great night upstairs adn down, as a result bought a ticket for new years eve and told all my mates to do the same... oh what a let down!
anonymous - 1 Jan 2007 20:42
Ditto previous comments - really good night upstairs
anonymous - 29 Dec 2006 00:31
went there xmas eve absolutely banging. Ok so the upstairs looks like a school hall but with the groovy music and the christmas spirit( mostly vodka!!) we all had a top night!!
anonymous - 28 Dec 2006 14:37
Get in there about 9

Wait at the bar to get a drink

15 mins later - walk out

Go to The Drayman and get served straight away.

Note to the bar staff of Zeros, stop chatting and throwing bottles in the air trying to be like Tom Cruise in Cocktail and serve people.

anonymous - 20 Nov 2006 08:53
I have to agree with many others here. The wait for drinks is terrible. Don't bother with the 2 for 1 cocktails offer as they won't have half of the ingredients and you'll have to wait around 15 minutes! Thats if your lucky!
anonymous - 3 Nov 2006 15:12
Is it really necessary to make personal criticism of individuals under the anonymous umbrella? There may well be issues with service and staff, to whom you maybe one or a friend of one Ė but be BIG enough to criticize the individual to his or her face. This website was not set up to be a forum for staff and their friends. I have had a long association with the Venue and as a Dj, I except criticism musically or otherwise as I am able to defend myself via this site or by email directly. I have not written this because of the posting regarding last Friday or comments about me in the past but because those who continue to make criticisms of individuals who are unable to defend themselves.
misterd - 31 Oct 2006 17:44
What happened last night [Friday]? Me and my girlfriends love the Friday nights here, and were all dressed up and looking forward to the saints and sinners night, but they got rid of the usuall Friday night DJ! No atmospher unlike the usuall Fridays. But the effort made by the staff [except the DJ] and to re-decorate the bar was good.
anonymous - 28 Oct 2006 12:48
Have any other regulars noticed that half of the staff have actually left. All the people that seemed half competent before have fleed what seems to be a higly political back bar row. The barstaff clearly do not like their jobs or repsect the female manager. Not surprising after she hired all of her friends and gave them priority on the shifts. Hmmmm! Surely thats not right. Tom is lovely though, professional and can control his staff. Is a good bar but needs some differentiation.
anonymous - 27 Oct 2006 15:41
Saturday was really packed, I had to wait over 15 mins to buy two drinks. Most people I think get bored of waiting and left as when I passed later it was empty. Your website does not work, like your staff as I tried to email disappointment directly.

anonymous - 23 Oct 2006 16:16
If you consider the service as good, then you must be Pi***d. Expect a long wait to be served. Full of fun people where were they in the toilet.
"tom is wick'd excellent attitude" sums up the the type of people to expect - Slade Green must really be quite.
anonymous - 21 Oct 2006 13:31
brilliant bar and full of fun people. tom is wick'd excellent attitude.pity he wasn't there tonight to cheer up our evening. the service is good and the dj on fridays is really proffesional and knows what to play to please the crowd. just left there tonight and had a really good time.
anonymous - 21 Oct 2006 02:35
Zerobar - take note you are losing so much business because your service is poor! Expect at least a 10 minute wait - expect the staff to vanish around the back, bring notes of large denominations to wave about before you get noticed - a fog horn or football rattle may be better. You don't have enough staff and the ones that you have are useless! As for the manager she needs needs to read a dictionary Manage be in charge of;succeed in doing;control;handle.
As a bar the management fails at all of these !
anonymous - 17 Oct 2006 18:17
The only thing I can say is be prepared to wait a LONG time to get served! Service is terrible on Friday nights! My nan could serve quicker with her eyes shut!
anonymous - 17 Oct 2006 17:26
Indeed it does sound like a advert, not of my doing but thank you to who ever posted it! For my part I would like to thank those do attend my night at Zerobar! Your comments are always welcome as I would like to improve the experience for you. You can contact me directly on [email protected]
Cheers Al.
misterd - 7 Sep 2006 13:27
Dynamic duo "Dj Stef & Mister D" the best night in Zerobar every month is the First Saturday. Great choice of music and good atmostphere.
anonymous - 6 Sep 2006 09:56
A real shame for a bar with so much potential. For bar that claims to be over 25's its clearly not. The service is really poor and if you do wish to be over 25's bar, over 25's won't suffer ten minutes for a cocktail and a average wait of 5-10 mins to get served. Music was really loud as simply driven beyond its capabilty. As for the music it was a mishmash of everything and not very well done. I spent my weekend with friends - so I also visited on Saturday Night music was much better but service issue are the same.
Glad to return to Manchester
anonymous - 24 Aug 2006 10:09
After having a brillant last Saturday we gave Friday a try. Sorry Zerobar it was rubbish. Maybe you need to get the Saturday Dj to do both nights. On Fridays we will be going back to Affinity or Ohm Bar.
Sorry!!!
bexleybabe - 12 Aug 2006 11:01
First time vist to this site and Zerobar, from my experience I find some of the comments a bit harsh.
Really friendly crowd, good music funky house in the bar and seventies & eighties upstairs. Atmosphere was really good. It was nice to dance to all that cheese and cringe at the dated videos. £2.50 is good value and you go upstairs or downstairs. Probably the best night I've had in a pub for years. Give it a try !
bexleybabe - 7 Aug 2006 13:19
Had a really good evening this Saturday. Two floors of music in very different styles. Had a lovely evening upstairs, both old and young enjoying themselves.The bar is a bit small so they struggleto keep up

alana - 6 Aug 2006 16:20
Boogie Wonderland - Fantastic
katierodgers - 6 Aug 2006 10:33
Party Friday: Loads of thirty years old blokes, drunk, intimidating, plus a punch up, dj from hell playing party music sounded like jive bunny or stars on 45, mumbling on the mic, droping the volume up and down like the red coats at Butlins. Ladies have your cocktails before 10.30 and then get out. As a woman going to a "over 25" bar its a disgrace. I left Ohm Bar because I told Zeros has a older crowd - Well Ohm Bar was million times better! If you want a sugar daddy - ladies there are 10 losers to every woman - and that essentially sums up the night.
anonymous - 5 Aug 2006 09:57
It amuses me at the amount of comments Zerobar attracts in comparison to the other local bars it would seem it is the ONLY bar in Bexleyheath. Yes I would agree the service is poor but there have been staff changes and unfortunately it takes time to correct past management errors. It seems to me that the management need to take note, but your case is not helped by your Dj defending himself in that tone.
I'm sure he doing his best and Saturdays Dj is much better but still people leave at 10.30!Zerobar needs to go back to couple of years it was perfect! Punterss - Give the place a chance! Ex bitter staff who seem to be the source of most comments need not apply.
anonymous - 2 Aug 2006 16:47
I have to say that I think the service in Zero on a Friday is rubbish, really poor! If you want to get served quick this is not the place to go. The happy hour is a joke as it will take you forever to get served! A complete con!
anonymous - 2 Aug 2006 11:07
I've never found the service that bad. Busy times (9-10) there is a bit of a wait but nothing too bad. To be honest, the Golden lion can be worse

Of course, after the 10.30 exodus you should get served straight away!!

I've never had an issue with the music either although i dont go on Fridays. Unfortunately, every DJ probably gets asked to put on the usual 'Dancing Queen' by someone who's drunk.

I still think its the best place in Bexleyheath.
Appreciate thats not saying much!
anonymous - 2 Aug 2006 08:54
Could't agree more with the previous comments - service is really poor - one person working the back bar - staff are very slow to react to waiting customers. A real shame because it's quite a nice bar!
anonymous - 31 Jul 2006 21:10
I went to Zero bar on Friday and have to comment that the service was absolutely terrible. I had to wait 20 minutes for my first cocktail and half an hour for the 2nd one after ordering it. Considering the amount of bar staff working there this really is a complete joke. I was even told to go outside while they made it and come back! They didn't even have half of the ingredients either so I was asked to change what I wanted twice! So considering its happy hour between 8 & 10pm if you want more than two drinks get there early as the staff are not capable of making more than two cocktails an hour!
anonymous - 31 Jul 2006 11:07
Interesting, I have popped into Zero Bar the last few weekends and the Friday nights are getting alot better to what they were. Th old music is not quite my thing but my friends are in there every week, hence why I pop in and I have to admit, even I enjoy a few of the tracks played. This night is definatly for the girls or teh older crowed, but I prefer lloyds where its a bit more my age group and up to date. Great place to start off though.
anonymous - 30 Jul 2006 17:31
I did't write the original comment Keith, I just thought your closing comment was rude and detracts from the fact the friday Dj (who may be you or somebody else) is generally slagged off - yet you defend yourself on again as you say time frame question.
As for Boogie Nights I think you will find that dj built his reputation on being rude obnoxious git but I have to concede his knows his music and crowd.
anonymous - 27 Jul 2006 17:28
think u got the wrong end of the stick here, I wasnt aiming to be rude in the slightest, I was just answering ur query of why that song was played at 9 pm when it wasnt. As forbar policy? I cant comment on that, its not my bar. In refrenct the 'same as other bars' this is only till 10pm, then we go old school then party. it is impossable to please everyone every night, we try attract the older crowed and so play the older stuff to attract a similar cowed as the great one we get for the boogie nights. Sorry if you though I was 'having a go, but I was just correcting ur time frame for the music.
KeithTrue.com - 27 Jul 2006 16:52
Easy off Keith True - I read at least 8 reviews in the last few months saying the Friday music ain't up to much. Are you saying it is bar policy to play the same as most other places on a Friday (your words) and most people are leaving at during this period. That would lead me to think "I'm playing the wrong music or I ain't as good at playing music you are likely to here at other places" becauce people are leaving to go to those other places.
Being rude in your reply to one customer - doesn't excuse the fact Friday is lacking and its the Cocktails bring people in not your music!
anonymous - 27 Jul 2006 16:29
Re: annon 27-july 07:50... I was the DJ on this week and in reply to your Question "Why play Dancing Queen at 9pm"? I can assure you that the older music does not start until 10:30pm only after the Old School club stuff at 10pm. this week was the FIRST time I'd played dancing queen at zero in months, and so remember it wasnt played until midnight because I dislike it myself and was requested by a customer.

I cannot comment on much else but trust me from when I start a 8pm I play the usual R&B, Funky House and chart stuff you're likely to find at most places on a friday night, and so doing the older stuff we get alot of requests from the older crowd which we are targeting.

Hope this answers your questionand please get your information right when posting on these things. Thank you.
KeithTrue.com - 27 Jul 2006 14:09
I was there on Friday - The party policy is to get the YOUNGER girls drunk on cocktails and have them dancing around the back. The music caters for this.
Why play Dancing Queen at 9pm no wonder people are leaving early - leaving the drunks to create atmosphere. Zerobar used to have a better class of customer, I not so sure now! Security staff smoking and blagging punters a sign of the times or maybe I just getting old!
anonymous - 27 Jul 2006 07:50
I went zero bar last weekend. Got there for about 9 and it was busy. Good, quick service at the bar and friendly crowd. However, people started to leave at 10-10.30 which was a shame. The only answer must be to have a 'happy hour' from 10-11! I think people are much more likely to stay on later then!
anonymous - 25 Jul 2006 20:25
Being more of a traditionalist, I'm not really a fan of "trendy" style bars, but admittedly was impressed on my visit here. The interior and decor was as I expected it to be, however it was the draught beers from a microbrewery that impressed me. I tried a couple of the varieties on offer and both were excellent. The prices were also reasonable and was glad the music was at a reasonable volume. I like it load enough to be enjoyable, but not so booming that you struggle to hold a conversation. The bar didnít get too packed either which was a bonus for me, but was a little surprised at how quickly the place cleared as the evening progressed. All in all, Bar Zero is one of the BETTER music bars in Bexleyheath. Recommended.
HTM69 - 24 Jul 2006 14:34
Nice to see the improvement in staff and service - crowd and dj still a bit suspect on a Friday. Well done
katierodgers - 17 Jul 2006 14:26
Thank you to those who emailed me regarding the Seventies & Eighties Night at Zerobar. Your kind words are appreciated. As this night enters it eleventh year there will be dramatic change to the format - bringing the nostalgic night into age of video. I am just compiling the videos before launch.
Thanks again Al
misterd - 7 Jul 2006 10:44
Funny somebody uping Ohm at 12.39 and then making excuses for Zerobar Dj at 12.37 - Could the management be at work again! Your Friday nights a crap at both venues - sort your Djs out may that would be a start. As for seventies night (may I add the best night at Zerobar) how does that help the fact the bar is empty downstairs and would continue to be if events were held upstairs! Zerobar used to be busy on both nights till you changed the Djs about a year ago. Why was that done since then its just got worse and worse - Young drunken chavs at the back is now the yard stick of success ! Avoid FRIDAYS
anonymous - 1 Jul 2006 12:32
Can I just comment that Firday nights Dj was a stand in DJ as the regular DJ was playing in London. I will agree that the music was rather dyer on Friday what the place needs is a few more events like seventies and eighties night.
anonymous - 28 Jun 2006 12:37
Yet another painful Friday night - Is this another new DJ in a state of confusion - R'n'B with cheese cut in - Why the managers not listening - I was pointed to this site by one of your staff when I moaned about the music - well I ain't the first and i won't be the last.
anonymous - 26 Jun 2006 20:04
Again Zerobar is suffering a personality crisis - The new manager has alot of work to do - firstly some of the staff need to replaced and only then can he start to rebuild this pub with has been suffering from a lack of direction. Nights like Platium Funk do the venue no favours as it attracts the age band.
You need to work on returning to a over 25 bar like before. And in time the customers will return

anonymous - 13 Jun 2006 08:39
I have got to say Zero Bar your standards have dropped. What has happended since Rick left? Now we all no he wasnt a particularly great manager but what is with the new one? I was there on Friday and not only was the bar deader than ever but the barstaff looked suicidal at points, its one of those places where you can blatently tell there are serious bar politics behind the scenes. Sort it Out!
anonymous - 12 Jun 2006 16:28
When are you all going to wake up (Affinty/Ohm/Zerobar/Drayman) - none of you are Jesus and you can't divide the bread in thousands. There are only so many people going out in Bexleyheath and none of you offer anything original - so people go where it busy or where there is atmosphere!
Stop bitching and concern yourselves with your customers !
anonymous - 9 Jun 2006 09:02
Gee! stuck for choice do I go to Zerobar on Friday where there its empty or Ohm Bar where its empty !
I suppose I choose the Croog Log !
anonymous - 7 Jun 2006 20:44
what happened at the back bar?

Actually, i think the door staff ok, it was great entertaiment watching some bloke going into one at them about why he couldnt get in with trainers!
anonymous - 2 Jun 2006 15:59
Agree with you mate, where does everybody go at 10.30pm ? Also your doorteam are rubbish after what went on a couple weeks ago at the back bar - get on with your jobs instead of socializing and smoking.

I've been coming to Zerobar of years and trouble was stopped at the door, Ive read all the negative reviews aimed to a manager - well if he's gone maybe its time to reinvent the place !

Ps Saturday is the best night - Friday can be painful.
anonymous - 1 Jun 2006 13:26
Sorry to bang on about the 10.30 exodus but it happened again! Went there on 27/5.

Have they put the beer prices up? £2.90?

I actually quite like the music there, loads of early 90's house. Then again, i'm old!

I think it is the best bar in Bexleyheath though (although arguably, thats not saying much)

We need a tacky nightclub in Bexleyheath!
anonymous - 31 May 2006 14:15
Visited here on Saturday after the dissapointments of Dryman, Ohm Bar and Affinity looking for that over 25 crowd. Music not really to my taste, but the Dj informed me politely he was covering and that was the music policy of the night. Later he did play some cheese which totally transformed atomsphere. The bar service was poor considering the number of staff,as for over 25 pull the other leg.
anonymous - 17 May 2006 14:32
Went there last night- 12/5/06 - A real shame a bar with plenty of potential but poorly run. Very young and inexperienced bar staff, the music was okay but provided with no personality. With all the competition locally you need the create a atomsphere which is seriously lacking.
anonymous - 13 May 2006 11:31
well what can we say? we all said he would be out the door one day and that day has come. lets party. his leaving do is wednesday the 17th of may. come down an wish him good luck. or as i will be good riddends.

at least now zero will be able to run like a real bar. just a shame they lost that other manager a few months back.
anonymous - 12 May 2006 17:38
What happens at Zerobar that is so wonderful that Rick was responsible for? Is it the toilet attendents, the lighted candles on the tables, maybe table service, or the clean kitchen upstairs,the fire exit covered in broken bottles, the disco lights that don't work most of the time,or the poor service at the bar. Oh yes its customers fault that the management can not do its job properly, so Rick's leaving (or was he pushed?).

anonymous - 10 May 2006 18:31
To who fanked god for Rick leaving,

You are obviousli an idiot. Rick is a legend, he is what makes Zeros what it is. It is going to be so much worse then it is now without him and its to people like you that this is to blame. half of the things that have happened at Zeros wouldnt have if it wasnt for him, so in future keep your lame ass opinions to yourself.
xXxkatexXx - 8 May 2006 14:32
There must be a God ! Rick to leave Zerobar ! Maybe Zerobar will return to the better class of bar it used to be. As for Rick ever considered washing cars in Sainsburys - Forget that I forgot you are lazy and clueless!!!
anonymous - 4 May 2006 17:22
Please, please, please do something with the Friday Dj - I have seen more life in my dried flowers. We are being driven to Affinty. Also I'm quite capable of powdering my nose without a toilet attendant intimidating me to part with my loose change.
anonymous - 2 May 2006 17:21
Saturday had a Great night, I don't know why this bar gets so much negetive reviews. Dj downstairs totally complimented the Seventies Night upstairs. £2.50 was really good value - nice crowd, they restrict the numbers hence not packed in like Affinty, friendly doorman. Upstairs was brillant, maybe the Dj should lighten up, you play great mix of music but the odd smile to show you to are enjoying the night may go a long way. You need to promote more nights upstairs.
Give it a try!!!!
anonymous - 7 Apr 2006 09:56
I think this bar has gone down hill....ever since the management was changed - the manager changed all the staff and then the DJ's on friday. The young lad that he got in was playing the right music for the place he kept it quite partyish and even played the newer stuff to keep the attraction there and to compete with OHM and Affinity. But to tell you the truth how can this bar compete with them when they dont put no money into adveristing the place. Ok so they went as far to getting the DJ's decks and lights at the back...but why just the back why dont they have them in all of the bar...and for god's sake the sound systems there is terrible!!!!

Rick - we all know who you are...you have to leave now and get back the DJ's that started that place. I would leave the Saturday Dj and he knows what he is doing but they current Dj on a friday doesnt have a patch on the one before him....
anonymous - 16 Mar 2006 11:49
may i say without stepping on anyones toes, as it seems a couple of you r at loggerheads as to what defines a good or bad bar, i was in their last sunday and enjoyed myself, a few straglers from the early footie game but developed into a nice all round evening....try it sometime
anonymous - 15 Mar 2006 10:21
The point I was making - It impossible for the dj's to cater musically for everyone in a bar which is basically a pub catering for people with different reasons for being there ! To meet friends, as a stop before going clubbing, or before going to Ohm or Affinty that charge to get in. If you define a night then you exclude people who may not like that genre of music. The decor and design makes it quite diffcult to create a atmosphere.
anonymous - 6 Mar 2006 18:03
agreed! get down to zero bar and stay till the end!
anonymous - 5 Mar 2006 20:44
Hey Anonymous of 23/2/06 - you don't know anything about djing in a pub and if you find the rest of the week okay at Zerobar you must be sad or lonely as it never busy or has a crowd. Since you seem to know so much about music maybe you should go up town to satisfy your musicial pallet with your crowd of one. The Dj's are doing their best in a town centre where there is loads of choice and simliar venues.
Ps I don't know any of the dj's but am speaking from experience having working as a dj in that type of venue.

anonymous - 2 Mar 2006 09:05
Wow - somebody else has spotted the Fridays Wedding DJ. Had a Dj on Friday who was there for years, Music was okay - maybe a bit dated or sometimes a bit cheesy, but least he knew about tempo. Then there was young lad, music again fine - a bit like the bloke before him but with more current tunes. Now we have a wedding dj with no clue about music. So if you like your music like Russian Roulette come on down. It maybe a idea to bring your own ipod or you may be left confused. To the managerment GET RID. The other nights are very good, if a bit quite but still better then the Drayman, the pretend nightclub.

r u joking .get rid of guy in toilet bah humbug.........some of you blokes need a bit of freshing up hahaha anyway had a fab night sat
anonymous - 28 Feb 2006 11:29
Went there last saturday for the first time in a month. Had a very good night and the music was better than normal. Wish they would do away with the bloke in the toilet asing whether you want to freshen up (!!). Its just not needed.

Once again, it emptied out a bit around 10.30 - 11 but there was still a good atmosphere until it shut at 1am and there was a good mix of people as well.

im gonna put it simple and honestly, take it how you want.... FRIDAYS "CRAP"complete tosh who hires this guy...SATURDAYS fine and relaxed even though funky hse it is not,just go to the drayman and thats funky hse.....good for MIDWEEK footie....the singalongs on TUESDAY mildly entertaining, but it is the beginning of the wk so cool to have a skin full and a laugh, SUNDAYS surprised its so quiet,good music,roll on summer for lighter nights. LETS face it a lot of people leave early coz the music all round is not good enough,its alright early on when you start, but doesnt capture people,they would prefer to go on somewhere else b4 its to late, TAKE NOTE DJS " WATCH THE CROWD,PLAY FOR THE CROWD AND THE CROWD WILL STAY"....................................

the pub has got a very young team of bar staff! seems if the manager is happy they are if not then rude an no drinks mode kicks in!. ive been their most friday&sat's for the last 3 months quiet a good bar. the age limit is 23 now used to be 25 whats up with that! friday nights are cheese, cheese, r&b, cheese so not bad if u like that.! sat nights cool they play funky house most i think is head kandy stuff but stillg ood tunes he throws in a few old dance classics 2. i dont understand why the place empties at 10:30- 11- ish not sure why. the beer sucks but bottled drinks r ok.

why does everyone leave t 10.30?
anonymous - 10 Feb 2006 20:51
Boogie Wonderland - Pure cheese it may be but what a great night - had a great birthday if you don't want to be ripped off at Deja Vu, or surrounded by kids at the Rat, or risk your life at th Venue. Well done Zerobar

It looks great, reasonable music, nice decor and all that but everytime i go there it seems to die about 10.30 with punters apparently going elsewhere.

I dont know why this happens as its a nice place.

Reasonable (bottled) beer selection which could do with more variety but i dont like the draft ale (and i'm not the only one). In fact, its awful. If the owners want to avoid the Carling / Stella crowd why not get some other draft beers in like Oranjeboom or Hoegarden?

Good older crowd. I've been upstairs a few times and the DJ setup and music is pure cheese but enjoyable.

Average price drinkswise

Hello Katie, for your information, the night seems to have moved to their other club down the road. We were in there on saturday and the dj was playing old disco and some really good music. He also plays more modern music but it was mixed in well and so we did not mind.He also does requests and had everything we asked for. Try it at the ohm club.
anonymous - 14 Jan 2006 13:17
Poor communication, have attended 70 & 80's night on many occasions - saw flyer, phoned up and turned up on Saturday only to find night was cancelled. The only good thing left a Zerobar seem to have been stopped - but they do have karaoke on a Tuesday.
Sort it out you numpties.
katierodgers - 13 Jan 2006 13:09
really good place
anonymous - 8 Jan 2006 19:45
nice place and open late. would get so many more people if it had pints of proper beer. a sleeping giant.
anonymous - 28 Dec 2005 18:13
Hello everyone. I am neither EX-Staff nor DJ and have no axe to grind. Lots of good things about this pub and one unusual, but good thing is the kareoke night. Not what i'd expect from this type of bar but nice to see them try something unexpected. Was quite fun on Tuesday. Aaron (i was told he was the manager) can sing bloody well as could one man from the kareoke team. The rest of us, I guess we need more practice! See you next Tuesday, I'm the one singing the golden oldies.
anonymous - 9 Dec 2005 17:23
how good is this. the bar is now doing karaoke on tuesday night's, its not young and its fair, can win prizes for fun and runs a fun quiz aswel. dont forget people tickets avalible for xmas an new year, and if you get bored boxing day night, the bar is doing karaoke. x

anonymous - 7 Dec 2005 13:59
was at this bar last weekend and weekend befour, found it to be, full of nice people who enjoyed there time. was great fun and many enjoyed danceing on the dance floor round back. along with great selection of DJ's, the beer is fairly priced and there was a fair bit of seating, that included table service for drinks at no charge. defantly will go there again.
anonymous - 7 Dec 2005 13:55
the most ponsy pub in history! Used to get away with being ponsy when it was ram packed with ponses. Now its so quiet all the time. The truth is being shown to all. Oh and the beer tastes like an infection.
cafc - 24 Nov 2005 15:35
It seems to me that most of the reviews on this bar have been created by staff or ex staff with a axe to grind. To many names mentioned about managers and dj's. My experience is simple a big bar, clean and well designed but without a big enough crowd to create a atmosphere. Music okay, drinks okay, staff okay but no real edge to keep me or my friends there till 12am.

Thank you to thoose who have anonymously post comments regarding my time at Zerobar/Foggs. I accept your comments. I was the resident at Zerobar/Foggs for nine years and in that time Friday was always the busy. I still have people come up to me and ask why I don't work there anymore. Maybe my music was dated but it was different. Most bars play the same music, I tried to be different, Zerobar was a older bar and I catered for that and if I was rude well sorry, you probably asked for R'n'B. Also I worked with Richard at Zerobar for many years - Moody he may have been, but as a manager he was proffesional and never pissed.
I would like to thank thoose who continue to support me by attending the Seventies & Eighties at Zerobar.
And yes I agree Kieran is a excellent dj, so much so I'm djing at his birthday party and also my day job is going so well I bought the company.
wested - 10 Oct 2005 13:59
not a bad night, could do with more people, but then again i guess word off mouth should help the night...
worth a try if you fancy an older crowd to mingle with, rather than the younger crowded places in the bexley area.......give it a go it can only get better
anonymous - 4 Oct 2005 13:57
had a wicked time sunday,the place was buzzing,theirs a new dj just for sundays playing the best funky house around (and i dont mean all the commercial crap) it was like being at one of the clubs up westend, good soulful house and funky soul,u have to get their early as it closes earlier than the rest , but worth the effort as it sets u up nicely for the week lol
ttmoe - 23 Sep 2005 08:44
Had a really good night on Friday (16/9), music was wicked. Glad you got rid of that big Indian DJ, he was crap, and was really rude to me and my girlfriends last time we were in there. (Stick to your day job, mate, you have the personality & talent of a rotton cabbage.)
Good night had by all - J, Tia, Lauren and Tash will be back!!!

anonymous - 18 Sep 2005 12:56
havn't been to zero for a while, just went back recently after travelling for about 18 months. excellent place now you've got rid of that dj Al. (the rudest and most arrogant bloke in bexleyheath. new dj kiron is good and plays music we want to hear. . . not build me up buttercup every night.) atmosphere in the place improved since that pissed manager left, dicky by name and def dick by nature!
Hey liz jones. . .whats with the homophobic attitude. . Live and let live i say. . . maybe if you live you own life more fully you wont be worrying about everyone elses!!
anonymous - 4 Sep 2005 02:00
Apparently part of Zerodegrees in Blackheath, which we enjoyed - but Zerobar is at the other scale - miserable staff who appear to be just out of their prams with a empty and cold atomsphere. Rude and over keen doorstaff. Won't be returning.
Claire & Friends - 23 Oct 2004 14:06
Had our wedding upstairs - our night was made by the DJ who said nothing but playing music that truly united all our guests.
Alan & Lynne - 23 Oct 2004 14:01
Used to be the best place to drink in Bexleyheath but I have to say since the new manager took over its gone down hill. There used to be some really good attentive happy bar staff which seemed to have dwindled to be replaced by some very young non-smiling miserable bar staff who I am scared to ask for a drink from (even though I am the paying customer). What I say if you don't like bar work why do it. The only nights I attend are the 70's and 80's and Old School (my favourite) the DJ is fab. When I go past the windows it always seems empty and not how it used to be. If you haven't been for a while don't go back as you will be disappointed. Its a shame as its a very nice looking place with good DJ's on Fri and Sat playing good tunes but is it worth going when your not going to get served and when you do its done with a negative attitude.
Anon - 21 Oct 2004 09:16
Used to be best bar in bexleyheath but now due to new management and loss of atmosphere i would say Afinity is now the place to be.
Rick Breckenridge - 8 Oct 2004 22:18
Went to a private party upstairs with Elvis tribute and disco - excellent music by both, very polite staff, nice hall, smashing night
Elaine Barham - 6 Oct 2004 22:55
Hi Friday DJ what a cutie, good music if a little young for the bar but he's got a wiggling bum and that will do for me
Emily - 23 Sep 2004 07:18
Poor Service, staff gather around behind DJ box and take little notice of punters. Zerobar a great bar with was capable of dealing with very busy nights - now its very quite and yet you still wait ages to get a drink
Anna - 23 Sep 2004 07:11
Used to be a very clean bar, full of nice friendly staff now the tables are sticky, staff are very young with no personality. As much as hate to say it we won't be going back thats ten customers more for Affinty
Helen Rowe - 23 Sep 2004 07:06
Where the the big fella - Bexleyheath's Dj Patel - one of the last djs who played for everyone not just trend. My Fridays will never be the same, that not to say the new fella is bad - to much R'n'b sadly bexleyheath is full of that rubbish !
Rick Jones - 15 Sep 2004 21:25
Used to be the best bar in Bexleyheath for the older crowd, got rid of manager, dj on Friday, replaced by young fellow and the rudest creep as a manager. I now would only recommend the SOS and Seventies Night they have once a month.
Jane reeves - 15 Sep 2004 21:20
Bit empty, not that many people as the Rat had taken over the majority of bexleyheath now but theres a really fit barman (Dean i think it is) he looks a lil on the yung side tho. Overall if your over 23 its the place to go otherwise, go rat, its much better.
Lu-Anne - 26 Aug 2004 10:41
Zerobar, whoever thought someone would have the guts to take the likes of Stella and Fosters out of a bar, well done. Fantastic night I had there on Friday, not seen what it is like on a Saturday yet but someone recommended the first Saturday of the month cause they do a 70s and 80s night til 1 o'clock. Bar staff seemed a little young for an over 25s bar but hey they were all good lookin so I wasn't complaining.
anonymous - 20 Jul 2004 00:54
By far the best bar in Bexleyheath, older crowd, great music, nice bar staff except for the odd few who left their personality and manners at home. But would definately recommend it!
anonymous - 22 Jun 2004 16:49
Admittedly camper but that seems to add to the atmosphere. The bar staff ACTUALLY smile now! The best tunes, great crowd and fantastic surroundings makes this place a winner at the weekend.
anonymous - 31 May 2004 22:35
The best bar in the Broadway, an older crowd- decent music, granted it seems a little camp since the new management came along - but still i'd rather drink where the musics good and the women are women as opposed to loose women you find in most of the surrounding bars!!
anonymous - 20 Apr 2004 14:31
Bexleyheath's Gay bar - used to be one the best places for good music on a Friday & Saturday - Full mature people not idiots - new management has changed it to a younger bar full of gay barstaff
