user reviews of Essence Bar, Farringdon

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Never been in, but pass it every day, and all I see through the fishbowl front windows is a soul destroying scene each and every day.

Sutton Arms next door is great if you like pubs. If you want bars, head along for about 3 more minutes and try Meet or Smith's or Beduin. This place looks like an airport bar.

The staff here should be given lessons in smiling!! The DJ was lousy and the cocktail was watery. Not good!

Went there for the 2-4-1 cocktales last Friday and wont be going back. Long wait just to get to the bar, then another long wait while they prepare your cocktails of course. Staff also not good at making a mental note of who has been waiting the longest. Avoid, there are better bars in the area.
