Came here with a few cousins for a night out in London Town, 3 of us are based out of the Los Angeles area and were visiting London. We went with bottle service so we would have a place to sit and relax at, a good move looking back since standing room was limited. Service was good, I find that most nightclubs in London have terrible customer service so this was a big plus.
The pricing was a little high, but its what you expect when you are a popular club in this amazing city. There was a mini fight that broke out next to our table, the bouncers handled it very well and allowed everyone who was uninvolved to enjoy their night.
PS- if you travel here from out of town or specifically the states, bottle service in London isn't what it is in Los Angeles or Vegas. People don't really pay much more attention to you for having a bottle or a table - not that its a huge deal but just putting it out there y'all!
They put on a £25 tasting menu. Food is bearable, with some notable highlights such as seared yellow tuna cube, truffle potato gnocchi and the chocolate s'more where favours and textures are nicely executed.
If it were not for the price I'm not sure I'd be willing to dine there as lots of attention to details in terms of service was missing, like using bread plate for starters!
Probably best to visit as a night out in London town when it turns into a nightclub, I'd skip dinner there!
This place is just awful, it is the one disco in London you do not want to go. The music sucks and the drinks are overpriced. The amount of people they let inside is just insane and you cannot move. On top of that, the last time I went there, me and a friend put our names on the list, I got no less than 5 SMS and 3 phone calls and 2 emails in the afternoon of a guy asking me questions including about what I was going to wear, and when we got there they still wanted to charge us because even though they lie to all clients that you get in for free before 11pm with a name on the list, it is only the first 50 girls, so don't be fooled by their promoters. In sum, Dstrkt is the last place you wanna go to if you want to have fun without stress.
Quite possibly the only club in London comparable to the LA and Vegas scene - in size, style and class.
Dstrkt was an awesome choice for our agency Xmas party.
Four large chambers are connected via open planning, each on varying elevations to keep things interesting. The space feels expensive and the guests look a million bucks. Management surely didn't skimp on the sound system and intelligent lighting. And drinks kept flowing thanks to plenty of bar space and the pros working behind them.
Next time I'll surely booking a table.
Let me answer some of Yelper complaints/Qs first.
Yes if you were a bunch of guys they wont let you in.
Yes if you don't have a reservation or known by the door staff you may not go in.
Yes if you were wearing NOT smart, sneakers etc... You will not go in
Yes it is pricey . Its a club in Soho so .....
The place is attached to this amazing restaurant that serves some really good food.
As for the club its your typical club with the typical club characters. The Music was really cool as they always change their DJ line up. They also have dancers on different podiums around the place which gives a cool sexy vibe.
Had lots of fun and would definitely go back when ever I felt like dancing and have a nice group to go with.
My partner and I decided to have a big dinner night out here a couple Friday's back. 12 courses + wine pairings - we were pretty excited to throw down a few bucks.
Service - Not bad. Staff of course had to pop by a lot due to the number of courses being served but we were disappointed at times not to be given better descriptions of what was being paired with each meal and when asking questions they weren't always entirely sure.
Food - Okay. I'd like to say amazing but, unfortunately, it just wasn't. The tuna was a bit dry, the venison was okay, the blueberry bbq sauce served with the pork belly was so-so. My favorite part of the night was probably the Endives with blue cheese spears served right at the beginning and the extra black truffle added to the asparagus dish. During one of these foodie experiences you really want to have your socks knocked off, but all and all I was quite disappointed by the end of all the courses.
Wine - Pairings were quite good. We knew we would be getting the equivalent of about one large glass and a half each all together and they were generous with the pouring. The best pairings, again, were towards the beginning of the meal - though I'm not sure if my dissatisfaction with the meat towards the end contributed.
All in all i would say not worth the money you'll be spending.
I've only been here once and it was on a Thursday. There was a door scene, but that's sort of a given for any relatively cool gastro lounge. Good music/sound system, good vibe, good drinks...my only complaint is the location. It is not exactly in Soho contrary to another Yelp reviewer's description. Regardless, you quickly forget that your in a less desirable neighborhood in London once you descend down the staircases. If you're having issues at the door (and you're a pretty girl with a BMI of under 20/dressed well), ask to speak to Asher to avoid the line.
This is an absolutely awful nightclub. You do not come here to dance since there is no dancefloor! In fact there is barely any room to move at all. The crowd is horrendous. They are clearly not on a night out to enjoy the music and dance (if you know what i mean).
Very expensive and definitely not worth it. In fact i can say this place is horrendous!
The food is of michelin star quality really interesting and new concepts that I have not come across before. I would recommend trying their tasting menu or pre-theatre which is great value for money. Highlights include the fois gras popping candy lollipop, pesto salad flat bread, steak, oysters and smoking cauliflower. The location could not be easier to get to as it is central in between Leicester Square and Piccadilly Circus. I will definitely be returning again!
Great club and a truly fantastic DJ set from DJ Kayper what a mixologist!
