As cool as it gets! Fantastic atmosphere, excellent drinks reasonably priced!!!
Definitely a fan, even though I only tried the ol'-good Guiness and didn't splurge on the cocktails.
Next time I'll make it during happy hour!
- 5 min walk from Baker Str.
- Nice seating by the big windows.
- Nothing yet.
More than likely skip it.
We stopped here for a cocktail. Looks good from the outside...
Then the bartender got into this big production making what he seemed to think was the best cocktail ever... at first I thought he was joking, so I just humored him... and was patient.
Then he continued to draw the production out... holding the shaker way above his head letting drops of drink drip into the pint glass.... (missing the glass and getting some on the bar..) Towards the end he added MORE ICE on top (to water down my drink)... I was puzzled.
I actually had to walk away and my girlfriend took care of the tab because it was so ridiculous.
Whatever I had (there was suppose to be gin) tasted like fruit juice or a snow cone.
The atmosphere is nice, and for a beer it would be fine... NOT for the craft cocktails though..
The Marylebone became my end-of-London Sunday-night happy hour spot with a friend, where we met and shared delicious cocktails at an amazing 2-for-1 price (until 8pm on Sundays!)
This meant we usually ordered twice as much as we needed, but gave me (over the course of several weeks) the chance to try the:
Mangopolitan (mango-infused vodka, cointreau, cranberry, lime)
Mango and Passionfruit Caipiroska (vanilla, lime, mango-infused vodka)
Breakfast Margarita (marmalade, grapefruit, tequila)
Marylebone (elderflower, cranberry, lime, gin)
and something with watermelon in a tall glass...
Basically, you can't go wrong. I've sampled lots of their infusions at a Yelp event, and now I've had the cocktails too. Brilliant.
They take a former pub layout and bring it to highest calibre of cocktail bar. Best of the best.
Not bad. A little crowded on a Friday night.
This pub is on a busy intersection with a LOT of foot traffic passing by.
I get the feeling a lot of people use this as a meeting spot on their way to somewhere else.
Lots of picnic table benches outside in this dark, but homey spot.
Good mix of business people, but I imagine a lot of these people are tourists here.
Didn't have any problem with sharing a table briefly with one of the locals. So it seems like a decently friendly place. Not far from the Sherlock Holmes hotel, and some references to Sherlock Holmes-like stories are referenced here.
Ok place. I'd surely watch my valuables in a busy "cross-roads" place like this.
Awesome adult playground. Great staff, and best cocktails in the area. Mix in with groups of local drinkers and shop and eat near by. Great little find and good for all occasions. Leave the little ones at home and have some fun.
This is a great pub. It is the local pub for AIU students, as well as the residents of the area.
They don't serve food here, but they are ok with you bringing some food in (as long as you buy a drink, of course).
I have lots of great memories of this place, and also great times that I don't remember.
No complaints. Live dj on weekends, creative drinks list, and 2-for-1 deals before 8pm on weekends. Younger crowd earlier that gradually transitions into a late 20s/30s crowd by 10 or 11.
Not my favorite neighborhood, but if I'm there, this will do nicely.
Definitely the scene for the young, hip and well-heeled 20-30s crowd, this slightly pretentious, but quirky and homey little bar makes for a friendly (albeit pricey) evening out. I went there around the holidays and the place was teeming with probable regulars, the smell of mulled wine and/or peppermint concoctions thick in the air. The decor was pleasant and interesting. It was definitely a unique experience, but one suited to the trendy hipster. I normally like this kind of place, but my drink companions were looking more for quiet conversation and a good ale. Even for myself it became a bit too crowded when the tables beside us filled up.
I'm not sure if it's meant to be a restaurant/cafe bar(?), but a table of about 6 guests (seated elbow to elbow with us) brought in with them some pizzas in cardboard takeaway boxes from another eatery. They nonchalantly proceeded to help themselves to some plates from behind the bar and dined ravenously, cheese and pepperoni flinging around, while they continued on their obnoxiously loud conversation. Maybe I'm just not trendy enough (certainly true), but is bring-your-own-dinner a "thing" in London? Not really an idea that should catch on, IMO. Although the clientele that frequent The Marylebone may be sharply dressed, the behavior of that particular crowd helped rush our party out pretty fast.
I don't think I like this pub for the right reasons. I like it because it's in one of my favourite areas of London. Everyone forgets about Marylebone, even though it's only a few minutes from Bond Street. It's no somewhere I frequent, so when I do, it's fun. It's a lovely area, the shops are fab and wondering around makes me happy.
So the Marylebone makes me happy. But it's not nearly as nice a pub as they like to think. The service can be pretty shoddy. With five behind the bar, the restocked the shelves and left us standing for close on ten minutes. We very nearly left. But once you've got a drink, it's a nice place and you tend to forget that the service was bad. It's not cheap (but then, in this area, you wouldn't expect that, and I wasn't allowed to suggest the Sam Smiths pub up the road).
I like it here, but it's a bit snotty. It gets four stars because it's in the perfect location. Really, it's a three star pub that's a bit shiny. Not that you'll care once you've stumbled out of La Fromagerie.
A great hang out of many of the university students around here, I've spent many an evening at the Tup with friends. Definitely a great place to go when the weather is nice and sit out at the tables right outside.
Went last night with a friend for cocktails. Really nice bar; good decor, comfortable vibe, and friendly staff. Cocktails were good too (theres a pretty extensive list), though some of the cocktails were a lot stronger than others. At 7.95 a cocktail they aren't cheap (though not exactly bad prices for the area). They also have a good happy hour of of 2-for-1 cocktails (Weeknights from 8 till 9, Saturdays from 6 till 8)
This place feels like a traditional pub with a modern twist. Two huge LCD screens on opposite corners of the bar area generate clusters of people around them (I'm guessing this is a fun place to be for any game), but it also seems to be just a simple hangout for students in the afternoons. What really attracted me was the free wifi.
Its NOT the Marylebone Tup anymore!! Its now known as the Marylebone and is a cross between a wine bar and . well i dont know!! Its a MASSIVE shame that was always a busy, great, friendly, BYO food, LOCAL has been changed to a (yet another) standard want-to-be young person bar. Give this a miss with both barrels! And before you ask, yes i am a local, yes i have lived in W1 for years and I am in my early 30's and just don't get why you would change such a great pub that always had amazing reviews by any London mediaSHAME!!!
a really sweet pub that's always packed on weekends. unlike the old folky ye old swiss cottage pub that's around the corner to where i live, the Marylebone is usually full of young 20's/30's after work or stopping for a drink before heading to a bar/club. impossible to find a seat on weekends but during the week it's not so bad. the Marylebone is also our choice of pub to go to after hitting our favorite restaurant L'entrecote down the street! for a relaxed drink on a trendy street, why not the Marylebone?
Great place to meet some friends, grab a pint and just relax.
A few tips for the manager in "How not to treat a well behaved bunch of 40+ local punters". Tip 1: Don't be really aggressively rude to the birthday girl that's brought said 40+ people to your otherwise empty bar. Tip 2: Don't use dodgily wired light fittings that explode their wine bottle-sized bulbs down on to the drinkers below (see live-wire blown fitting in photo). Tip 3: At closing time, don't try and justify why you were so rude and aggresive to the same customers who've just spent a small fortune in your bar. Tip 4: Don't mess with locals who use Qype. Verstaan?
