Went here to celebrate my birthday a few months ago. Whilst Barcadia has never been my top place of choice I do appreciate the fact that you can get in here for free, listen to bearable music and drink into the small hours without having to pay ridiculous club prices. I must admit I have certainly spent a bit of time and money in this place over the years as I lived in Kingston through to the age of 27.

What left a bit of a sour taste in the mouth though was as it was my 30th birthday, a mate of mine kindly gave me a bottle of whisky in a gift bag. Being a responsible person I ensure that the whisky was left safely behind the bar. In my befuddled state at the end of the night(due to drinking their booze) I forgot it. Now I don't live in Kingston so I had to phone them up to ensure that they kept hold of it for another week so I could arrange for it to be colected at a later date. Well it was liked I have asked them to store a dead body for me! ! ! !

To make matters worse when I got someone to go in to get it, the gift bag had disappeared ant the bottle was sitting on their bar with a pourer in the top. Now I work for a transport company and this would be similar to if one of our customers left there car at our depot and me instructing one of my drivers to use their car to make deliveries. What a way to treat a paying customer.

Absolute Piss Take! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !

To the misinformed reviewer below, can you back up your slanderous comments with any actual evidence? For your information, all the door staff at Barcadia hold SIA licenses and are hired through the same agency that Oceana and most other venues in Kingston. Your references to the door staff and managers' ethnicity are inaccurate, not to mention irrelevant.

This place needs to be shut down. The door staff are Eastern European thugs who are illegally working on the door as they are unlicensed. The management are also Eastern European thugs who if they don't like the looks of you are willing to express their opinion and threaten you.

the place can potentially be the best bar in kingston, if they sort out the doormen. some nights they friendly, others they make any excuse not to let you in. Also, why they sell Cristal champagne tho is beyond me

Not been here for a while, so I won't leave a rating. Always used to have a good time when I used to come here, when I was younger.

No, it doesn't serve any real ale and it does play loud house music, but that is quite obvious from the outside, isn't it? I think the last review is a bit unfair, as Barcadia is not trying to be anything other than what it is, but as the previous poster said: each to his own.
