user reviews of the Retreat, Islington

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

Is now called Kinky Mambo. Never has a queue outside because it doesn't attract the kind of insipid proles that places like the Living room attract. Friday's and Saturdays, it's packed inside with great DJ. Tues and Sun see's live jazz/cabaret acts. other nights are quieter but a great place for a proper cocktail and low lights. Always good quality music-no R+B etc. The door men are really friendly as are the staff. The cocktails are dangerous though, very strong, but therefore good value!

Took a very varied group of people there on saturday night and everyone loved the place.

Fantastic DJ. Polite staff. No door charge.

NB. Retreat is now called "Kinky Mambo".

This has now been renamed "minging mango" or something. Never has a queue outside and when you go in there you can see why.
