Farringdon has a new neighbor (with an underground Secret)Simmons Bar opened it's doors in Farringdon last Friday but had a cheeky twist we weren't expecting...
Last Friday saw the opening of the new Simmons bar in Farringdon. Late Night London headed to the Launch and boy were we impressed!
The venue has all the normal ingredients that makes one of the fab Simmons hangouts but Farringdon has a secret lurking beneath.
The main bar and ground floor is quaint and charming. The walls adorned with patterned wallpaper, retro computer games and a large collection of lamps in various shades and sizes sit atop the picture rail. Of course being a Simmons, the most important feature you will be pleased to know is in place is their ridiculously Happy, happy hour that runs from 5-9 and has some of the best drinks deals in town.
But the fun doesn’t stop there. Through a door to the left when you enter, which you may even be forgiven for walking past without noticing, There is an Instagram friendly neon lit stairs leading down to an underground club called the 105 Lounge. A cheeky wee after hours spot with DJ, Dance-floor and drinks to aid the cause. We arrived a little later (around 9) and suffice to say the atmosphere was absolutely LIT!
We of course joined in for a boogie and caught ourselves up by having Sex with a lad - BEFORE YOU JUDGE US, That is the name of a cocktail. Yes, one of the hilarious points of the evening was finding this name on the menu, cue endless jokes and questionable hashtagging on our insta stories. I mean, I couldn’t really write this blog without dropping at least one of them.
After we tired ourselves out (not by all the sex with a lad, by dancing), we headed back upstairs and saw in the final hours by making boomerang videos of the bartenders shaking cocktails, drinking shots and genuinely living for the music. In all, an absolute corker of a night.
Great for after work drinks that usually get a little boozy, birthdays and good old fashioned fun, book yourselves a table at Simmons Farringdon now!
