We will definitely be back. Tucked away off the main road near Old St tube is a side door which leads you up some stairs in the Golden Bee. The Venue Planting itself firmly on Singer Street, this new bar to the Old Street area only gives away its presence by a buzzy little bee on a sign above the door, and by noise carrying down from the rooftop, several stories up. If you carry on round and up, you'll find yourself outside and up on the roof. Highly recommend Golden Bee, great club. I have only given it one star because Time Out will not let me give it -1000000000.
The clientele was diverse but mainly around the 25 year old mark, out to have a good time, a great drink and maybe a flirt. The staff were professional and focused yet nice and friendly; doing a little dance behind the bar when a real tune came on. Keep up the great work guys!!! Many contribute to a cocktail list chock-full of martinis, margaritas, mojitos, flutes, shots and the Golden Bee - a house drop of Olmeca Reposado tequila served with crushed ice, Pisang Ambon banana liqueur, passion fruit sugar, lemon and cloudy apple juice. Quick service at the bar which goes down well when you're in a crowd. Whether you're after relaxed post-work drinks, sophisticated fun on the weekend or a bespoke corporate event, our sleek interiors and stunning roof terrace - showcasing the cosmopolitan views of Shoreditch below - provide the perfect backdrop for every occasion.
Enjoy 2 for 1 cocktails and happy hour discounts on beer, house spirits, wine and champagne! Going to Golden Bee was the first time in my life that I have ever felt unsafe at a club, let alone feeling unsafe because of the staff working there. Really cool rooftop bar with amazing cocktails and a 2-for-1 happy hour, even on Fridays! Not impressed at all and I will definitely not be going back. The music was just right and the younger members of our group had a great time downstairs in the main bar We have nibbles delivered and they too were great, along with the easy atmosphere we had a brilliant night and cant wait to go back, Many thanks to all at Golden Bee, we loved it!! Most beautiful bar topped off with the best rooftop in London. The bon vivants who took full advantage of the lovely roof terrace were joined by a well-dressed surge just before the entry fee curfew at 9pm, generating a nice buzz. However drinks and bar are good, just unprofessionally run. Had a dance downstairs too. More Less Nestled between London's financial district and the vibrant urban village of Shoreditch, Golden Bee is the quintessential urban cocktail bar - complete with a superb cocktail menu comprised of beloved classics and original concoctions.
This open-air bar have comfy sofas and tables, perfect for hosting your event or special occasion as well as two 60 inch screens ideal for watching sporting events. It's all about the party at this cocktail bar on Singer Street, just around the corner from Old Street tube. The drinks are great and the staff are always friendly, you never have to wait very long for a drink unlike in many other London clubs. The staff weren't massively helpful either. I would definitely recommend drinks here and am looking forward to my next visit! The rooftop terrace has a retractable roof, so open through both good and bad weather. We had a short lived, horrible time at the Golden Bee.
The Management were great and I must say I did not find the place overcrowded at all. You would even have to move on just move floors as the music is always great! The roof terrace was so nice! The long bar and various seating areas make for a really communal feel, the trendy and current fashionistas really congregate here from the various other clientele in attendance. Delicious drinks, great music, plus an unrivalled atmosphere, Golden Bee has the full package. Loved the cocktail list and apple crumble was my favourite of the nite. The music, drinks and costumer service were great too! Roof top and cocktail bar in the heart of Shoreditch Golden Bee is a new city cocktail bar located on the outskirts of Shoreditch with a newly refurbished upstairs bar, terrace, and spacious rooftop bar and area. Drinks are reasonably priced and there's no entry fee which is a bit of a coup on a Friday night in Shoreditch! Not sure how these bouncers get away with it.
We all had drinks and wasn't even given the chance to finish them without the manager and owner shouting at us like mad dogs. The bar was busy but not overcrowded and i didn't need to wait long to be served by bubbly bar staff. Spirits - available by the bottle and the measure - range from the well-known to the rare. Despite the fact you dont want to drink these. You have to be very careful not to get beaten up if you are a male at this place by the bouncers.
Relax around the fire-pit on our rooftop bar and lounge on our sofas with a cocktail in hand, taking in the views of bustling Shoreditch. If it's a great view you are after though this is not the place to find it. During the week, Golden Bee is a relaxing lounge bar in Shoreditch, London and a perfect place to wind down and enjoy some post-work drinks with colleagues and friends. Even better is that they have a happy hour! The rooftop is definitely one of my favourites in London as seating is casual and relaxed but very pretty. There is a downstairs bar and outside terrace which is well able to accommodate the crowds.
Golden Bee boasts one of the most beautiful rooftop terraces in Shoreditch, with views of the surrounding trendy East London area. A member of our party was beaten until unconscious by three of the bouncers working here. Our talented bartenders are master mixologists, creating the most delicious cocktails that are perfect for your post-work drinks with colleagues as well as your big weekend out with friends. I visited a couple of Fridays ago for after work drinks, really good atmosphere and music on the outside terrace with plenty of heaters. Granted I have never been late in the evening, it has never been unbearably busy so I have always had quite a relaxed time here. Summer means one thing to me, happy hour at the golden bee.
Cocktails are good, and the view over Old Street is lovely! During the week, Golden Bee is a relaxing lounge bar and a perfect venue to wind down and enjoy some post-work drinks with colleagues and friends before at weekends the venue transforms into a club with a fantastic atmosphere. The rooftop is one of the best I've been to in London. They all seem to act like a gang and are young guys who seem like they go looking for a fight or to hit you. See our Enjoy the best rooftop terrace in Shoreditch no matter what the weather! Food and Drink The drinks selection is well-rounded and lives up to anyones expectation and taste but the main attraction is the fantastic cocktails. Music was fantastic and housey and the whole vibe was amazing, highly highly recommended!! Over aggressive and violent, very unprofessional. An original touch is the bars Gold Bee mascot, more often featuring in this bar than natural bees would around an abandoned marmalade sandwich.
I have to say however I visit the venue for the roof top bar, and find the downstairs small, dark and lacking atmosphere-until it gets livelier later in the evening. If you like gold, turquoise and velvet curtains then this new bar in Shoreditch is made for you! Please, do not go to Golden Bee. There is a Fire-pit and heaters all around. Try to time your visit to between 5-7pm on Tue-Thu when it is happy hour 2 for 1 , and you will have one of the most price-worthy and qualitative rooftop experiences available in London. The Golden Bee has a lot of potential to be great - fab location with a wonderful roof terrace.
