Simmons King's Cross reviews

By Andrew M.

I often pop into Simmons on the way home to take advantage of £2.50 bottle beers during happy hour! My geek mode is always set into high gear when playing Sonic on the SEGA Megadrive in the room downstairs!

Simmons is my current favourite place in London, love the teapots, love the fun decor, always have a great time and will be back there very soon. My friend booked us a table on Friday and despite it being busy the service was good and we all left very happy!!!

Veeeeery nice bar! Awesome Skull Mirrorball on the ceiling, awesome staff and awesome cocktails for everybody who like those, and for those who don't - very lovely wines, beers, mixers and shooters. I would forget, AWESOME cheap happy hours! Check it out!!!! :)

Cocktails were excellent and very well priced. I would definately reccomended the venue for birthdays and celebrations and will definately be returning. Many thanks!

Great little venue just off Kings Cross. Working in the trade I'm always looking for cool little niche bars with their own imprint. Away from the monotony of chain bars and boutique bars that are too cool for school. Simmons is exactly what I was looking for. Small enough to be individual but without all the pretentious nonsense that surrounds these types I venues (usually owned by a top 'mixologist' with Daddy's money. Simmons quirky staff rub off on the place and their humour really is imprinted on the walls of this great little hideaway. Definitely will be back next time I'm around town!

By Yannick B.

Loved the theme of this bar, the decor, the teapots and the bartenders who definitely know their stuff! I for one feel tired of seeing dozens of bars which all look exactly the same. With Simmons you definitely will see it's uniqueness. It's the kind of place you'd remember the morning after no matter how many drinks in you were.. Note: If and when you check out this bar don't be that person who orders the same boring drink. Trust the bartender with your preferences and what's the magic happen or taste it even.

By Thom W.

Had two great nights here in the last two weeks. Cocktails are great, drinks are affordable and the location is ideal. Will be returning soon!

By J K.

Wow what a little gem we stumbled across. After meeting up with friends in the day, we were about to go home when we saw this little place and decided to have 'one more', well thanks to the beautiful cocktails 'one more' turned into a 3am night bus home! Well worth it, cannot wait to go back. Thanks Simmons for making it a night to remember, if I ever become famous this night will be in my book haha...

By Chris T.

Went to the bar for a couple before we headed out. What was supposed to be a couple led to staying majority of the night. Nice staff, interesting surroundings, decent music, crowd and drinks. What more could you ask for.

By Lizzie B.

great little bar! went for friends birthday for few drinks before going out, ended up staying all night! worth a visit...

By Lorenzo C.

really great little joint. Very nicely done with cool design touches inside, always a great vibe too strongly recommend for either a chilled drink or a party!

By Lee E.

By Tamar C.

Love love love SimmonS! Great cocktails, great company and great decor! Really cool place. Unique and one of a kind. You are pretty much guaranteed fun and laughter! I would definitely recommend checking SimmonS out! Happy drinking people :)

By Izzy F.

Went to Simmons a few weeks ago for the first time and I am so glad I have found such a gem in KX. Great atmosphere, good tunes and really friendly staff, topped off with amazing cocktails. If you haven't already, you need to check this place out!

By Sophia W.

Me and my friend randomly managed to find this amazing little bar a few weeks ago... Literally the BEST cocktails I've ever tasted, especially when drinking them out of teacups and teapots! The bar man will make you ANYTHING.... Great fun atmosphere, and amazing deco! Will definitely be visiting again on our next trip to London!

By Christina A.

Went there tonight for the first time and it's the best thing in London. Can't believe I didn't know about this place...Staff were so nice, really good service. So much fun playing Megadrive and drinking cocktails- the best combination ever. Definitely recommend it to any one looking for a one of a kind place to hang out!

By Nick C.

Good little night out at Simmons tonight, funny lamps everywhere and beer cans lining the walls. the music was great and the random atmosphere works very well, would highly reccomend!

By Kristaps B.

Hi Went here about 3 weeks ago ! had a really fantastic party Loved the Bear Wall soo cool ! Fantastic toilet (so funny) got really of the hook . loved that little old school video GAME .. Guys Go there and enjoy

By Josh K.

Went here last week and i have to say i loved it!! My friend had told me of this quirky little bar near the station and had been on at me to go and try the different beers available. Ended up chatting to Elliot, all night and not getting home until 3am, a great place to go, would definately recommend if you are ever in the area.

By Anna C.

We hired Simmons for a private party in July and it couldn't have been better. Elliot and the team made everything perfect, with amazing cocktails and delicious toasties on tap all night long (until 3am!). The perfect venue for a party, as well as being a smashing place to go for a quick drink during weeknight happy hour.

By Charlotte K.

We first went to this newish bar for a private party and loved it. Since been back on midweek and weekend nights, and also for lunch one Friday, and each time it's been consistently good. We're working our way thru the massive range of unusual beers (try the gooseberry and plum ones - really tasty). It's also one of the only places we know in Kings X where you can get a decent sit down meal after 10 o'clock. Top marks for the lovely decor and soft lighting and brilliant music. We're definitely fans of this great little venue and the funky basement bar.

By Emma H.

I took a few friends here last weekend for a daytime pint and a cake - it went down really well with everyone, and we loved the atmosphere. It's a great place during the day for a chat and a cosy few relaxed beers, whilst at night the music and ambience are really great, especially for the start of a night out. I was really impressed and will definitely be going again!

By Katie R.

Four of us spent last Saturday night here - fantastic mix of music from the live DJ. Great chilled atmosphere and everyone seemed to be having a whale of a time. Seemed fairly new venue as never been before but well worth another visit.

By E T.

We were in Simmons a few Friday nights back, we loved it and we'll definitely be going back. DJ was great, loads of disco, funk etc, there was a real atmosphere. Oh and where else can you get a cupcake with your pint. Check it out, it's great.

A kitsch watering hole with a house party feel just a stone’s throw from King’s Cross St Pancras.

The Venue
On first look, SimmonS’ narrow facade looks more like a corner shop front than a bar, but once you walk through its unassuming entrance there is no mistaking it. The space inside SimmonS feels like someone’s front room, with long wooden tables and mismatched chairs as well as small spots in the alcoves and a tiny bar at the far end of the room. The walls, which are papered in jazzy jungle print, are home to shelves laden with a quirky collection of beer cans, lamps, board games and vintage typewriters. Downstairs there is a function room you can rent out for your private party needs. Though if you have an impressive collection of friends and acquaintances, the entire venue can be booked out, too.

The Atmosphere
With a mix of funk and disco music being played by the resident DJ, plus the jazzy decor - which includes a giant skull glitter ball swinging from the ceiling - SimmonS does have something of a 70s house party vibe. And the friendly welcome from chatty bar staff adds to the illusion that you’ve stumbled into somebody’s front room. The little bar boasts a buzzing atmosphere every night of the week and it’s an ideal destination for letting your hair down after a hard day at work, or a great place to meet up with friends for a cosy catch-up. If you don’t get there early though, there’s a chance you’ll have to elbow your fellow drinkers out the way for a seat.

The Drink
If you’re of the opinion that there is something seriously decadent about drinking your cocktails out of a teacup, you’ll be in your element at SimmonS. Not only can you sip your tipple from bone china, you can pour it from your very own teapot too. To complete your tea set, each pot comes with sugar bowls full of lime wedges or extra fruit to add to your drink. From a Manhattan to an Old Fashioned, with Margaritas and Martinis in between, you can enjoy a cup of cocktail for just £6.50 or two for £10 during the weeknight happy hour (from 5pm-9pm). If china isn’t your cup of tea (geddit), the tiny bar also serves a selection of wine as well as draught and bottled beers.

The Last Word
This quirky watering hole is a gem of a bar which stands out from the more commercial bars and pubs that surround King’s Cross St Pancras.
