Great little cocktail bar - from the same owners as Boujis so you’d expect a great venue. Nice crowd as well. Will be back regularly for sure.

Fairly nice venue, with ball pit which adds a bit of quirky fun in the downstairs bar. The DJ played a really eclectic range of music, most of which our group didn't enjoy much, but thats subjective. Service at the bar is slow and the...More

Dear Management, I have decided to contact you after my disappointing experience this past Saturday 31st of March. I took my friends, 5 of us in total, to Eclipse Bar at Old Brompton road and it was utterly unsatisfactory experience. As cocktail lovers, we were ordering few rounds of cocktails,...More

We often come to this place with colleagues after work because it is the closest open until late after we have finished working. Nice atmosphere, we will come back definitely.

With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque
white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's
easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with
superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and
Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely
child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to
mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall)
such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming

On the corner of Bina Gardens and Old Brompton Road, the Eclipse Cocktail Bar South Kensington has been an established local favourite since it opened its doors in 2002. Its stylish street-front bar has comfortable, low-slung lounge seating, and the outside terrace is an excellent summer hang-out. The justifiably renowned cocktail menu can be accompanied by snacks ideal for sharing. Perfect for partying until the small hours, the bar is licensed until 3.00 am on Fridays and Saturdays. New for this winter is The BALLR. Room by Ciroc, which is the first adult ball pit in West London. Whilst maintaining the exclusive vibe this new addition is set to bring back a level of frivolity to the area, establish a place for premium playfulness and create a space where speakeasy meets the wonderful world of circus with live performers Thursday to Saturday.
