Party Earth Elk Bar Review

The Scene

Elk Bar in London’s Fulham is a popular bar/beer garden with mountain-style décor & a rowdy young crowd. Get tossed in London with pretty people & Party Earth.

Walking into Elk Bar can feel like entering a cabin in the middle of the Adirondacks, save for the rowdy young regulars who are far more preppy professional than plaid-clad lumberjack.

This spacious, high-ceilinged bar has deep red walls and hardwood floors, pictures of mountain habitats, and that sort of fake rural air that would probably be a hipster’s dream if it weren’t located in trendy Fulham.

An HD projector and several flat-screens promise all manner of sporting events – with the obvious predilections toward soccer, rugby, and cricket – while a large beer garden out back with long wood tables and an oft-used barbecue ensures a big crowd (and big burgers and ribs), especially when the weather cooperates.

Busy during the week thanks to an express lunch menu, the bar steps it up even further in the evenings when the nightly Happy Hour’s 2-for-1 drinks and big jugs of £9 cocktails draw lots of after-work collared kids. Thursday through Saturday nights, meanwhile, invariably see a line out the door and lots of slick dudes and trendy ladies getting rowdy over Ciderapple Slings and Banana Coladas from the long drinks list.

DJs spinning pop and 80s classics keep the energy high between rounds, as large throngs of sexy young revelers pack in shoulder to shoulder, trying not to spill on their ties and heels as they dance.

Catering to both unpretentious groups and usually snooty clans who are quickly too drunk to judge, Elk Bar is a wild weekend destination that is anything but stagnant.

    An HD projector and several flat-screens in the bar and beer garden feature popular sporting events, including soccer, rugby, cricket, and tennis.

  • Hot Nights / When to Go

    Thursday through Saturday nights for a guaranteed packed house, sweaty dance floor, and way too much drinking, or any day to take advantage of Happy Hour before the masses pile in.

  • Close By

    The Harwood Arms (Walham Grove & Farm Lane) looks like just another quaint neighborhood pub, but has become a destination for fine dining – and the owners have the Michelin star to prove it – making it a great spot to grab a fabulous meal before letting loose at Elk. Fiesta Havana (490 Fulham Road) is a festive Cuban joint with a larger menu and an equally rowdy dance crowd on weekends.
