Nordic, London

This page is no longer being maintained, so the information may be out of date.

Nordic is a bar tucked away in a basement on the north side of Oxford Street, five minutes walk from three tube stations: Oxford Circus, Tottenham Court Road and Goodge Street. It is a popular after-work meeting place with a mainly young crowd. It's cosy, despite the wooden floors, hard seats and the low lighting and appeals to local office workers by offering ping-pong, karaoke and sing-alongs whilst retaining a relaxed and cheerful atmosphere.

Their food only has the occasional Scandinavian influence. They claim to have four Nordic Specials, but one of those is fish and chips with mushy peas! Pleasant refuelling stuff.

Nordic is about drinking and socialising. They have various happy hour deals under the strapline, we don't restrict being happy to just 1 hour. They have a good range of cocktails with Scandinavian names like Sex in the Snow, Northern Lights and Scandapolitan.

When I have been with friends we have liked Nordic Bar as a place for a drink and a chat, but if you want to enjoy the best of Swedish food you would probably be better looking elsewhere.

Verdict

We didn't carryout any visits in 2014 so we cannot express an up-to-date opinion, but the Tripadvisor scores for food, service, value and atmosphere are all high with glowing comments about the cocktails. Where there are poor scores on Tripadvisor the manager replies along the lines of the fact that they "strive to give customers a good night out".
