Isis Bar and Lounge reviews

By S.

Isis is a really cool place for a few drinks with friends - a group of us went last week for a birthday and had a fantastic evening.

The barmen were really friendly and luckily it wasn't as expensive as I thought it'd be! Give Isis a go if you fancy somewhere new.

By Sally K.

Isis bar at Tower Hill is awful, overpriced drinks, and shabby décor. We live locally and after shopping in the West End went for a drink on the way home. A large gin and tonic was £15.50! Hardly any ice in the drink (had to ask for more)- no coaster to put drink on and no offer of nuts. We go to many hotel bars in the West End where the décor is superb and the cost of a G and T lower, better, served with grace. The bar needs a refit as it is not 5 star

Isis was the Egyptian goddess of motherhood and fertility. What this has to do with a luxe bar and lounge on the fringes of The City is anyone's guess. Despite this apparent misnomer, Isis Bar and Lounge, which is about as masculine an environment as you could ask for, is a suitable place to nurse a highball or two.

The Venue
Isis Bar and Lounge is part of The Grange Hotel - a 5-star hotel just behind Tower Gateway tube. The bar is a class act, fitted to a very high specification. Polished marble floors, wall panelling and gold leafed light fixtures fill the space.

The room is split in half with the bar in the middle. One side offers seating for meals and the opposite comprises low sofas and chairs for unwinding with a drink at the end of the day. Although a lot of people traffic flows past the wall of windows, there are few cars to spoil the mood. A couple of discretely placed flat screen televisions are muted so as not to disturb.

The Atmosphere
During the day, a suited and booted business crowd gather for lunch at Isis Bar and Lounge, while evenings enjoy a mix of post work punters and hotel guests (most of whom are business travellers). The uniformed staff are gracious and management appear to run a tight ship. It all feels polished and professional.

The Food
By day, the food is varied and light, including a well-priced daily lunch special. Other options include salads, paninis, risottos, pasta and meat dishes – all of which are a step up from typical bar food. Evening throws in some nice looking sharing platters. Or perhaps drop by for afternoon tea complete with sandwiches, tarts, scones and cakes.

The Drink
The sophisticated wine list at Isis Bar and Lounge has a selection of well-chosen wines - both old and new world. Prices are mid range and not all are available by the glass. Premium spirits are served at non premium mark-ups, making it a choice place for your favourite tipple or a trip through their cocktail list. Die hard lager lovers still have several draught selections to choose from, including Stella, Fosters, John Smith, Guinness and Budvar, although you do pay a premium on your pint for the upmarket environs.

The Last Word
Isis Bar and Lounge avoids the bland neutrality that plagues so many hotel bars. They have a clear understanding of their clientele – the business traveller – and do a very good job of satisfying that niche.
