Adventure Bar is a vibrant venue that boasts a wide choice of affordable cocktails. The friendly service makes this popular amongst young professionals.

Ranked #27 of 2091 pubs & bars in London
Part of the Adventure Bar group
"Based in a time traveler's workshop and home, this part-Victorian museum part-re-imagining of the future has hosted parties and evenings out since 2005. This recently refurbished venue has grown significantly since the visit of the Doctor, who whilst leaving his time machine laying around, also managed to discover and install the mysterious tunnel of time and keep a log of the bizarre goings on of his travels. Adventure hosts the local Claphamites for after-work eats and drinks whilst putting on mind bendingly ridiculous parties at the weekends. A drinks menu that hosts over 50 cocktails and numerous beers and wines does for the drinking side of things, whilst the food menu ranges from the astonishingly good sticky wings, to the ludicrous currywurst."

I had my 30th birthday at Aventure Bar Clapham Junction on 13/02/15, we had the room to the side to ourselves which was great, the staff were really friendy and helpful and the best bit was that they organised our own private Beer Pong for our group which was so much fun- thank you to everyone for making it such a great night!

By S C.

Adventure bar! The best nights I have always had have always got an adventure in it, by that I mean my mates and I always going here. The atmosphere is just great. The food is so tasty! My hour lunch breaks at work I think will I get to adventure bar and back in time to get a steak manwich. Some day Ill manage it! Not only that but the cocktails are the best I have tastied! Each cocktail that is made is made with care and attention! But over all I think its the great staff that make it such a good night out! They are always so enthusiastic and friendly. The staff seem to be enjoying serving you drinks and food and having a laugh with you, which I think is just so nice. Rather than the usually bar '(sour face) that`s £10.90, NEXT' I love how the place interior design is. I also think the menus on the old video tapes are just the coolest! I always try get a big group of people I know going here because of the beer pong tables! They are so fun and just such a cool addition to the bars. Love this place and will never have a bad word to say about it! So this weekend (or weekday!) get yourselves down there! You wont be disappointed.

I was looking around for somewhere to have our staff Christmas party. I approached The Adventure bar in Clapham Junction as I had visited before the renovations and loved it. It was easy to book, Sarah was really helpful and outlined the different options available. When we turned up on the evening the staff couldn't have been more helpful. Miles, the manager, was a real sweetie, but all the staff were keen to make sure that we had the best time. The retro room is fantastic, just the right space, I'll even forgive you for painting on vinyl ;)The food was great and everybody had a fabulous time. In fact, I shouldn't be giving the bar such a great review, as they all want me to book it again for next year, and it be too busy!

I booked out the Retro Room in the Clapham junction adventure bar for my 25th birthday. . Although a bit more expensive to reserve than just a table, it was 100% worth it! The decor is very cool and having a seperate room made a real difference later on in the evening when the main bar was rammed. The deposit turns into a bar tab anyway so an extra £25 didn't make too much difference as we were on the lovely cocktails all evening! The staff were some of the friendliest and most attentive I have come across- always smiling and making sure we had a great evening. Sang happy birthday and gave us free birthday shots for all 25 of us which was a nice touch! I would definitely recommend booking here and will be coming back soon.

By Thea N.

Great night out! Brand new venue, super friendly staff, free prosecco for my party of 8 and delicious, affordable cocktails all night. Would definitely recommend this bar!

By Isaiah F.

Great venue for a Birthday Party. Had a look at venues for my 24th in December 2013 and Adventure bar stood out for me. Booking was great and the people taking the reservation were pleasant and hilarious too. Night was loads of fun and I loved how the bar staff got involved. Much recommended and will definitely come back for more!

By Emilia C.

We went to the Clapham Junction bar last Saturday night. Fantastic cocktails and the staff were so bubbly and friendly. Though it was my birthday, I was on antibiotics so was a bit apprehensive about whether I'd enjoy myself: at recommendations from the bar staff I was made a personal cocktail which was so yummy! Had a really good night, music was awesome, atmosphere great, comfy bar stools for sore feet... Everything you need for a boogie with your mates!

By Carly D.

What an amazing night! I can't put into words how great my night was here. Upon walking in, we were greeted by friendly smiling faces ready to help and do all they could to make my birthday fabulous. The drinks were gorgeous (especially with the £5 cocktail specials) and the sweet shots mind-blowing. Coupled with some fantastic tunes that catered to non-commercial tastes as well as big hitters, the vibe was just unbeatable. My 24th was definitely one to remember :) Thanks Adventure Bar!

By Myles A.

I've been here a few times and have always had a great night. After last Saturday I really wanted to share my experience. The bar staff were awesome, the music was a bit cheesy but perfect for the night and the atmosphere was spot on.

By Sal S.

I was there to celebrate my friends hen night, the 23rd of February, and it was one of the best night outs of my life! Absolutely adored the staff. They were so friendly and made exceptional drinks (especially the June Bug!). I am definitely going back soon!

By Astrid S.

Just spend a few days in London with some friends who brought me to this weird little cocktail bar in South London. Two words to be said, COZY and CRAZY!! went from 10-100 in less than half an hour. Really friendly and funny staff, and the most amazing high-fives between Copenhagen and London. Really impressed with the amount of choice their menu gave and the extra knowledge the bartenders had about cocktails, delicious shots and non the less, how to throw a massive party!! Definitely coming back! New Years in London? Let's go Adventure girls!

By Richard S.

Adventure Bar is a great bar and would definitely recommend it. Everyone, including the staff and the bouncers were awesome. There is a massive choice of cocktails to choose from, but I just went with the recommendations from the bar staff. Scouse Tom is a hero, excellent advice. Give that man a promotion.

By Luke M.

Went to Adventure bar for a friend who lives in London's birthday. Had a great night. Being from Nottingham University used to bar crawling when going out so was surprised when my friend told me we were sticking to one bar all night, but it was a good idea. Adventure has a good atmosphere and a large choice of cocktails that suit all tastes and meant you could try a new drink each time you went to the bar and not get bored. Bar-staff and bouncers all really friendly. I'd return and recommend the bar!

By Andy P.

Dropped in on the off Chance. The bar was quiet early evening but the staff were great and I was really impressed by the willingness to make drinks to my spec. rest of the evening was just as good as the bar got busy. No hesitation in recommending this bar.

By Lauren P.

Terrible experience - booked for 40 people for my leaving drinks and turned up to a table that could fit 8. Were also packed in to the tiny venue with 3 other parties, making there about 100 people in a room smaller than my living room. When I complained, I was met with shrugged shoulders. It was cramped and loud and hot, I couldn't actually get to my guests to talk to them - one of my guests had a panic attack and had to go outside it was so busy, another guest was charged drinks on his tabs he didn't buy, I was told my secruity deposit would be given back to me as long as I turned up but then told that I HAD to use it as a tab behind the bar so when I pushed and insist that I wanted my money back only then did they relent and say I'd get it back (still have to check if it has been refunded). We were given a bottle of champagne as a "good will gesture" with 6 glasses...for 40 guests. Pointless! I left after 2 hours to go to a much better bar. Thought it was pure greed to pack that many people in a tiny space to get their money. I also sent a complaints email to the manager who hasn't bothered responding. Won't ever be going back again and suggest you don't go either!

By Martin A.

I've always had a great time here. The bar staff are fantastic and attentive and their cocktails are awesome. A great place to go for a few drinks after a hard day at work or if you are looking for a big party on a Friday or Saturday night, this is a good place to go.

By John G.

I visited Adventure Bar last Saturday and I have to say that it was amazing! The music was brilliant, a nice mix between cheesy and modern! The staff were chatty and made a good atmosphere from start to finish. How they find the energy to be on top form all night I will never know! A big thank you to everyone who made my night I will definitely be back!

By Sheona G.

Me & my friends had the best night ever celebrating my birthday - all the staff working were fantastic & really helped to make our night. I reserved a table & the service was very personal and it was just a brilliant night. Started off a little quiet but when you're with friends it doesn't matter but it got a lot busier as the night went on - will definitely be going back.

By John M.

Had a great time in Adventure Clapham, I hired a table for my birthday. The staff were great and had some great deals on the drinks. The music they played was varied but really fun. I would definitely go back.

By Milly G.

Went for a night out to Adventure Bar, thoroughly enjoyed it, staff really attentive, friendly and enthusiastic - especially tom! It was nice to see a fellow scouser who was so approachable. In general, would definitely recommend this bar to friends and when i next come to visit london ill be back!

By Amy C.

In a word: Amazing. 10 out of 10 for staff, drinks, atmosphere. You couldn't find a friendlier venue in Battersea, or probably the whole of London, if you tried. The staff go out of their way to make you feel welcome, and the cocktails are perfect every time. I've definitely found my local watering hole - can't wait to go back!

By Nick K.

Discovered the bar on friday night so dropped in with some friends for a quick drink and ended staying there all night. The staff were very friendly and the atmosphere was fab. Would highly recommend this bar and will definitely be coming back.

By Sarah N.

Fantastic night out last night at the Adventure Bar. Met friends there for drinks and ended up staying all night! Excellent atmosphere, friendly staff and good music made a really enjoyable night out. Will definately visit again, and next time bring more friends with me to sample the delights! 5 out of 5!

By Lauren B.

Visited the Adventure bar last weekend, the atmosphere was amazing, the staff were extremely enthusiastic and attentive at all times.I would definitely recommend this bar to all who love to drink and party! Top marks!

By Jinal S.

Arranged a night out with colleagues at Adventure Bar in Clapham, and was not in the slightest bit disappointed. Staff were extremely friendly and attentive, making the whole experience more enjoyable. We had booked a table, and were given a lovely location and plenty of space. Highly recommended! Made for a brilliant Friday night!

By Amy D.

This is an amazing bar with an awesome atmosphere and really friendly and helpful staff. The music is brilliant and people are always dancing by the end of the night. The drinks are delicious and expertly made and the cocktail range is huge (my favorite is the London Mule - gin, ginger beer and berries). Good value too with happy hour every day from 5 until 8. Been here lots of times over the past 2 years and I can't recommend it highly enough. Great venue for a birthday or special occasion as well as impromptu drinks any night. Easy walk (or stagger) to Clapham Junction too. All in all a great night guaranteed.

By Lucy J.

Had my birthday at Adventure CJ on Sat and had a brilliant night. The atmosphere, music and cocktails are great and the staff clearly love their jobs! It is a bit cosy, with only two tables, but think that just adds to the charm. Will definitely be back.

By Ben H.

Having just moved to the area I have looked into quite a few of the local bars and pubs and I have to say that adventure bar really does top them all! This place has a great atmosphere and brilliant staff who obviously enjoy their job and are more than willing to discuss which cocktail really would be right for you. Scott and his team really do everything that can to make sure every person that walks through the door have a good night.. I cannot recommend the bar enough or the sherbet flavour cocktail that Kat makes :D

By Ree O.

I was recommended Adventure bar by a friend and headed there for my birthday last Saturday. We had such a brilliant night. A Free cocktail on arrival as we joined the friends list online. And the free bottle of champers for my birthday was a brilliant touch. The bar staff were fantastic. You MUST try the Black Pearl cocktail definitely a winner as was the bar! I would have said a bad thing about the bar was that it's small but on the plus side we got to chat to loads of other people who were there because it was small which wouldn't have happened in a bigger venue. Def a good vibe about the place. We'll be back!

By Emma M.

Went to Adventure bar last Saturday for my 27th birthday! I was not dissapointed! They decorate your area with party poppers and hats to make you feel special! The venue had a great vibe, with excellent music and the staff were really friendly and helpful, even introducing some drinking games! The cocktails were beautiful and the great thing was that happy hour finishes at 8pm - be warned they are strong! All my friends loved it and we would definitely go back! We also got a free bottle of bubbly! All in all a great night out!

By Nicky P.

I came to Adventure Bar last night for the first time, The venue is great, the staff are friendly & the cocktails are awesome! Lucky is a really cool guy!! White Russian is a must try, I will defiantly be coming back to Adventure Bar again in the future

By Deanna H.

A great bar, with great music, bar service can be a little slow but worth the wait! Overall a great night out if you're around Clapham Juntction and fancy some tasty cocktails.

By Anna W.

I have just moved back to Clapham and this is now my new local - not how you would usually describe a cocktail bar but in this case, it really does feel like it. Really friendly bar staff who remember your name and welcome you with open arms when you arrive. Even Donald the bouncer is a sweetheart! Yes, it gets busy, as it is pretty small but you won't queue for hours at the bar, the staff there are constantly looking to see who's waiting and are pros at making several cocktails at once. These cocktails are amazing. And even better if you go at happy hour! The music is fab and I recently spent my 30th birthday in there - free bottle of champagne ( the good stuff, not luke warm fizz!) and a great atmosphere really helped me to have a memorable night! I recommend it to anyone looking to have a fun night out, without the expensive entry fee and snooty bar staff.

By Carlos O.

There is just nothing bad to be said for this bar! The drinks are of the highest quality, the atmosphere is always top notch, it's busy (but not the extent you're jam packed in like some other venues!) and the people are always of the right sort. Personally, I can't see why anyone would go anywhere else....

By Nicole I.

I've been going to Adventure on Battersea Rise for over 6 years now, and it is definitely one of my favourite places to drink. You know that you will never have a bad night. It's great in the earlier hours of the evening for happy hour cocktails (and the cocktails are amazing), and even better later when it packs out. Great music all night (you will leave with sore throat from singing along) and they have the happiest and friendliest bar staff ever! They will remember your name and make it feel like a personal, fun experience. It's always a pleasure to visit Adventure Bar and Lounge and I know I will be back in there very soon!

By Laura H.

I LOVE this bar and rate it as my favourite in London. I love that the staff ask you your name and get to know you more over the course of the night, I love that they play an assortment of music - but always good tunes and endevour to play your requests, I love that the cocktails are always very tasty (esp the Uncle Vanya!), I love that they do 2 4 1 every day and I love that it has it's own personality and as we all know personality goes a long way! Cheers +venture and crew what would we do without you!!

By Tobias J.

Hi there. Obviously being an intimate venue we have nights that can be more male orientated or vice versa. Overall, I think we get about 55% females drinking in our bar. They are mainly attracted by our cocktails and especially our offers on drinks. I'm glad you thought we looked good and I hope you get the chance to come and meet more of our customers next time. We find a lot of people meet new friends and more in our bar and we are a venue that sees many dates also. So maybe next time, you could meet "the one"! We look forward to welcoming you next time.

By Tobias J.

Yes, Adventure in Battersea is not big. We can't help this though and aim to make everybody's experience in our bar as pleasurable as possible. We would welcome the chance to gain a second opinon of our bar. May I recommend coming in on a weekday where you can sit comfortably and enjoy our cocktails deals or whatever you'd like to drink! We also aim to have the best service of any bar around. This is why even when we are really busy, we aim for everybody to get served within 5 minutes maximum. We have also re-furbished recently and would love the chance to welcome you back and show you what we've done. I hope to see you again in the bar soon. Tobias Jackson, Adventure Bar & Lounge

By James S.

I love what they have done with this place - got such a surprise going in last week theres a whole new colour scheme, booth seating and more toilets !! Still the same great tunes and cocktails and of course not forgetting the great atmosphere. Relaxed during the week and a party at the weekends.

By M.

I really like this place, the staff are friendly and quick. The music is fab, and i cant resist the great 2 for 1 deal. Love this place
