With three floors offering three different vibes, The O Bar is perfect for dancing, singing along with the music, or just lounging with a cocktail, and attracts an energetic clientele that packs the place from end to end just about every night.

The mirrored basement, which offers a spacious dance floor and intimate corners, gets a bit tight as the night wears on, and the scene at the main floor bar doesn’t offer much relief.

Guests who arrive early enough can admire the subtle and romantically gothic interior of tall cream leather chairs, chandeliers, candles, and dark wood paneling, though after a while it will all be hidden behind the diverse crowd of exuberant Soho professionals, students, and travelers who gather to sing at the top of their lungs.

Luckily, an upstairs room with soothing music allows patrons to escape the madness as they sink into poufy chairs and sofas and sip carefully-crafted cocktails by the fireplace.

Offering the best of both worlds, O Bar is a great option for late-night revelry without having to go to a club.

O, indeed!

After being hounded by numerous men of the street trying to lure us into their fast-track queues for overpriced clubs, a few of my friends and I happened to stumble across this little gem "The O Bar." It offered the perfect blend of bar atmosphere, with an ongoing social buzz, and a cocktail menu that satisfied my cravings (the drinks were also marginally cheaper than the previous bar we had visited. Score!). We were able to sit on the cushioned sofas, chat, sip/neck-back our cocktails and enjoy the atmosphere, taking in our surroundings, which happened to be occupied by an array of attractive people - it was certainly easy on the eye. The staff and the people themselves all seem to be caught up in this social buzz, making the experience all the more enjoyable. People seem relaxed, out to have a good time, mingling with strangers. My friends and I ended up talking to this lovely group next to us, which resulted in numerous rounds of drink being bought (which wasn't paid for by us). It was certainly a fun night. I'll definitely be remembering this little pleasure house for my next cocktail outing.
Great Venue

I love how many tiers it has. O Bar has three different floors with completely different feelings to each one so if you get tired of on floor you can run away to another floor. The main floor has more professionals and a small dance floor that doesn't get too crowded. It's a place for conversation and birthday parties. The lower floor is a club floor and the aesthetics are really cool with a lot of white and glass shards that create a beautiful enticing disco light effect. The patrons here are younger and more irresponsibly intoxicated. It's very crowded but still fun for dancing and people watching. The top floor is a quiet breather lounge with very sweet decor and a great place to relax. The bartenders are fun and great conversation as well.
