Party Earth Albannach Review

The Scene

An ultra-trendy Scottish bar, lounge, and club, Albannach lures in passersby from Trafalgar Square with its hip urban décor and modern glass exterior.

An ultra-trendy Scottish bar, lounge, and club, Albannach lures in passersby from Trafalgar Square with its hip urban décor and modern glass exterior.

Deer antler chandeliers and male staff members in sharp black kilts give a nod to the Scottish ambiance without going over the top, while a scattering of silver couches and white tables welcomes customers to the sophisticated cocktail bar on the ground floor, a popular hangout for an after-work crowd of young professionals.

The low-key vibe in the bar area features soothing music and the constant buzz of animated conversation as patrons sip seductive cocktails or savor a selection from the bar’s famed menu of whiskeys from every region of Scotland.

Albannach also offers a small upstairs restaurant with buttery yellow sofas and rugged Scottish landscapes, as well as a VIP area surrounded by silver curtains and wrought iron railings that overlooks the bar – but the main attraction is the A Lounge, a funky downstairs den that turns into a club on the weekends.

The wide variety of music from Nu Jazz to funk classics keeps the stylish clientele on the dance floor all night, making Albannach an excellent and lively alternative to the typical West End clubs.

Albannach User Reviews

Average rating:
Eclectic underground-ish venue in a cool location
Anna O. Nov 30, 2012
Albannach is literally in Trafalgar Square and is a cool and somewhat quaint venue. I have only been to the downstairs where it is kind of a modern-dungeon like look with alcoves with seats and tables. It has an open middle which is the perfect place for a dance floor kind of off from the bar so it doesn't get too crowded. Overall a funky venue with a really cool look and vibe.
