London has no shortage of blowout venues where you’ll go for a special occasion and spend your monthly take-home wage on two G&Ts as you party the night away. There are restaurants where meals have to be saved up for months, if not years, in advance (Salt Bae anyone?). London is expensive, or at least it can be. Because for every uber-luxe and expensive restaurant, is an equally good and far more affordable neighbourhood joint or market stall. And for every bar charging through the nose for a spirit and mixer, there’s a Simmons bar – London’s ultimate value destinations for nights out.
The brand’s incredible prices are no doubt a big part of their success in recent years, as they’ve grown to 25 sites – with five opening in 2022 alone. And the fifth location this year from the UK’s fastest-growing bar brand will be their biggest yet. Opening on November 17, mere days after the November 10 opening of another new Simmons Bar, next to Bond Street tube, the venue will drop down into the centre of London, in Holborn. Spanning two floors, they’ll have a capacity of up to 400 people in the neon-filled space.
But what’s a bar opening without a party? For the first two days of the bar’s opening (November 17 – 18) they’ll be treating guests to a FREE BAR from 6 PM – 8 PM. Forget happy hour, this is on another level. Except, they haven’t forgotten happy hour. They’ll still be bringing their legendary five-hour-long Happy Hour. Running from 4 PM- 9 PM, you’ll be able to get incredible offers such as 2 cocktails for £10, bottles of wine for £12, bottles of prosecco for £18, and spirit & mixers from as little as £2.50.
Said Nick Campbell, founder and CEO of Simmons Bars:
“Holborn is a great little spot, connecting Soho and Covent Garden to the East and The City, and we’re looking forward to bringing the party to a new part of town!
Over the next 3-5 years the brand plans to expand to over 50 locations, and you can bet they’ll be packing every site thanks to their incredible prices. Want to head down to the Holborn opening night parties? Head to the Simmons website to sign up for access to the Holborn Launch Parties.
