After casting an eye over so many identical pub refits, it's always a pleasure to come across a venue that's doing something a little different. Here's a self-styled 'bar and screen' which lives up to the name, laying on a screening each and every day. Free entry, a simple refit (walls covered with more red curtains than a David Lynch film), a large screen and a decent enough range of drink to enjoy whilst you enjoy the visuals (we particularly liked the range of bottled beers in the fridge - and the cocktails). If that wasn't enough, the bar food looked enticing and mains come in under the 10 mark. The films on show range from recent releases, cult classics and experimental shorts - there should be something on to appeal to any filmgoer so it's definitely worth contacting the bar to find out more about their listings as they constantly change. Now if only they had an usherette selling ice creams...

Overview

Roxy Bar & Screen opened in Summer 2006, combining a stylish bar environment with an informal cinema space. It quickly develop a reputation for its laidback lounge atmosphere and the “innovative and imaginative programming” (Metro).

Detailed Description

Weekends see regular DJ nights and live audiovisual nights alongside plenty of party bookings, then with screenings of recent releases, cult classics, shorts nights and live rescores during the week, the venue provides a unique environment to watch films and was voted one of the best five cinemas in London (Time Out), one of the top ten bars in the UK (Shortlist) and described as “…probably the coolest cinema venue in London, if not the UK.” (Urban Life Magazine)

 

Film screenings take place from Sunday to Wednesday on a large-scale, state-of-the-art digital cinema screen and surround sound system, offering viewers a unique, high quality cinema experience within a relaxed bar setting.

The hugely popular Film & TV Pub Quiz takes place every other Thursday, whilst all the big football, rugby and other sporting events are screened live in HD on the 4m screen - one of the best places in London to watch sport.

 

Good quality value-for-money gastropub food is served alongside an impressive wine, beer and award-winning cocktail selection.
