Spent a night in a hotel around the Victoria embankment area and decided to go in here to have a drink only to be turned away because I was on my own. How absurd! It wasn't even late in the night which was even more shocking.

After being here several times previously and enjoying the atmosphere & spending a lot on drinks, my friends and I came for drinks in January and were refused entry because we were 'too drunk'. We were told to 'sit on the kerb for 10mins' before coming in even though we had only had 2 drinks each and it was raining.... More

Had the best time at Opal, staff were incredibly friendly. We went for the birthday package which was such good value for money - and they through in champers which was incredibly sweet! Music was rnb/mainstream but perfect for a great night out, with plenty of space to dance and booths to chat! Thank you and would definitely recommend!

Staying in Trafalgar Square / Embankment

Neighbourhood Profile
Trafalgar Square / Embankment
With its iconic Nelson’s Column, majestic oversized lions and brightly-lit fountains, Trafalgar Square is not just considered the heart of this bustling London hub, but the very core of the city itself. Beyond this esteemed gathering place are more famous icons, as well as a disproportionate numbers of the city’s most popular cultural attractions including the National Gallery and many West End theaters. Along the way to these major sites are quiet lanes and antiquated pubs to discover, as well as riverside vistas to enjoy on the embankment. With a calendar full of celebratory events, any time of year is a fine time to visit.
