Visited here after work and totally loved the place- not many places left in London with pool tables, where you can hang out with your friends as well as enjoy some funky music and cocktails. The staff are on the right side of being cool but still being very friendly and helpful. I also loved the mixed crowd here, not just the usual media types you find in this area....will definitely be coming back.

I love burgers and I'm not talking the McDonalds variety (although I'm not ashamed to say only a Big Mac will hit the spot!). The burgers at 1920 are definately some of the best Ive tasted in London and that's probably because tehy use 100% Angus beef. Forget the usual burger combinations of cheese or cheese, 1920 serves a varied menu including buffallo Mozzarella with parma ham, garlic butter mushrooms with smoked bacon and my facourite- the burger with chargrilled vegetables and roquefort cheese. Yummy! Not only is the food fantastic but the cocktails are also great and the staff are only happy to make your drink to your requirements. If you're not too stuffed from your burger you can also play a game of pool.  Not for me though I'm quite happy chilling witha  cocktail. 1920 definately deserves its title of serving the best burgers in town.

I cant believe I only discovered 1920 a few days ago...its round the corner from where I work. Really cool place to play pool. And the best cocktails I have had in ages. Really cosy atmosphere and really nice staff too. Ill definitely be back!

By Tom K.

Wow, taking pub food back to the dark days... fancy a platter where every item has come out of the deep fat fryer - BINGO... could barely get this down... prob ok if you are drunk, but as a place to go to eat please avoid

I went for a night out here with my girlfriends a few weeks ago on a Thursday and I very much enjoyed myself. The interiors are really funky with comfy and stylish seating areas/booths and the music selection was pretty good too, not stupidly loud so you could hear yourself think and have a conversation without shouting, but loud enough to have a bit of a dance. Also the cocktails are delicious and very reasonably priced for London. I will definitely go again, it is something different, not your usual London bar, overcrowded and full of annoying people.

We had our engagement party last week at 1920 and we wanted to say thank you to all the staff.

You made this evening a real success. Everybody loved the venue and we all had a great time.

Thanks again

Fun, quirky and great for big groups, 1920’s stylish exterior pulls you in, and its warm, vibrant atmosphere keeps you there all night.

The Venue
Only a few minutes from Barbican and Farringdon tube stations, 1920 is easy to get to but still hidden enough to feel a bit special and off the beaten track. There are plenty of tables outside for summertime drinking, and inside on the ground floor you’ll find comfy sofas, a funky mural and four pool tables. It feels clean and airy, and this is the place to hang out if you’re just after a drink and a chat with friends. If you fancy a more lively evening, head down the spiral staircase to the industrial-style bigger cocktail bar, complete with dance floor, DJ and padded bright red seats.

The Atmosphere
What with its tasty cocktails, comfy seats and enough eclectic music to get anyone's toes tapping, 1920 can get rather busy, mostly with 20-somethings wanting to relax with a game of pool or to strut their stuff on the small dance floor downstairs. It's perfect for a birthday party, with plenty of large tables and secluded areas, and the DJ won't drown out conversation. But you'll want to reserve in advance if you're going with a big group. Come early evening, there's still a vibrant atmosphere but, in that gap between after work drinkers and 'out for the night' party animals, you'll have plenty of space to move/sit/play pool, and you won't have to queue at the bar.

The Food
If you like burgers, you’ll be in your element. 1920’s tasty and generously-sized bespoke burgers come with salad, mayonnaise and delicious potato wedges, and there are loads to choose from. Try a surf’n’turf burger, complete with whole tail Scottish scampi for £9.25, or a chicken burger with goats’ cheese and red pepper for £7.50. Vegetarians can opt for a spicy bean burger or (for pescetarians) a salmon brochette burger.

The Drink
1920 serves up a large list of drinks, although you might be pushed to find your favourite cocktail on the menu. Instead, you’ll find imaginatively named blends like Rum and Bass, Cuban Thunder and Southern Rock Star, all for £7. Ask the staff for recommendations, they’re happy to tell which ones they like best. For wine lovers, a small glass of chenin blanc or shiraz is £3.80, with a small rioja or pinot grigio on offer for £4.50.

The Last Word
A funky cocktail bar that doesn’t take itself too seriously, 1920 has certainly been designed with a good night out in mind.
