Foursquare Review: 3.1/5

"Excellent happy hour that lasts for five hours or an entire day depending on when you're there. Order a long island iced tea in a teapot. Funky decor, but the place stinks of toilet."

The Setting

Simmons is a well known bar chain that’s still popping up locations in and around the most bustling parts of London – and their Tower Bridge retreat, while cosy, is one of the quirkiest and most affordable nights out in the area.  Ideally situated and open until early morning, come on down for drinks deals and live music galore.

The Atmosphere

There’s no particular theme here, but we love the quirkiness and the sense of humour of the venue – everything is put together in a cheeky fashion and, as such, it’s not hard to get swept up in the fun.  Massive happy hour deals, regular DJ nights and live music help to make this a lively, social venue you’ll want to keep coming back to.

The Drinks

Simmons Tower Bridge offers a mix of specialised cocktails and the old classics – meaning that if you’re simply looking for a good old Cosmo or a White Russian, the team will see you right – at very affordable rates!  The Mirrorball – gin, lemon juice, soda water and elderflower – offers a real kick which we think you should get stuck into first and foremost.  Beyond the cocktails, deals on beers, spirits and more are always in full force.

The Service

Friendly and knowledgeable, the team here have clearly been lined up to help present the fun of the brand – they’re always ready with a smile and the level of service has always been above the standard we expect.

“TOWER BRIDGE’S SIMMONS BAR IS A TIGHT-KNIT, FUN LITTLE VENUE WITH NONE OF THE FRILLS OR THE PRETENTIOUSNESS – IF YOU WANT A SIMPLE COCKTAIL AND ARE JUST OUT AND ABOUT FOR A LAUGH, DEFINITELY POP IN HERE IF YOU’RE IN THE AREA AND TAKE A LOOK AT THEIR BRILLIANT MENU.”
