The Golden Bee lounge and cocktail bar in Shoreditch is an oasis of excitement and elegance in London’s trendiest neighbourhood, featuring three floors of space and one of the capital’s most sought-after rooftop terraces. Our optimal location is only seconds from Old Street tube station, as well as a short walking distance from Liverpool Street and Moorgate stations. Escape the hectic city life and take in views of East London and beyond at Golden Bee, where you’ll find so much more than just a cocktail bar.

Golden Bee offers the ideal relaxation setting during the week for meeting up after work for a few drinks with friends or coworkers. On our rooftop you can bask in the sun with a refreshing cocktail and kick back on one of our lounge sofas or, if its cold out, get cosy around our fire pit wrapped in a blanket! When the weekend arrives, Golden Bee transforms from a cocktail bar into full-on club mode. Every Friday and Saturday our DJ’s crank up the music for 3 floors of thrilling tunes, tantalising drinks and sensational views where you can lose yourself on the dance floor and party in style into the early hours.

Everyday is an occasion at Golden Bee, so whether you’re just after some post-work drinks or ready to commit to an entire night on the town, Golden Bee is ready to welcome you with ambience, atmosphere, and great music curated by our DJ’s. As one of the top rooftop bars in Shoreditch, our weekly schedule is packed with happy hour specials, a delicious drink menu and even food platters for table bookings.

    If you want to hire a place for a summer party, I cant recommend enough. The way they catered and cared was incredible, I've had none stop emails from my staff saying how amazing the summer party was and its the best they have ever has since being at the company ( we have been open for over 100 years ). Thank you so much golden bee and i look forward to our next summer party :) x

    What a night is all I say!!!! I celebrated a special birthday at the Golden Bee and there are not enough words to express how much of a great night me and my party had. We started the night at 6pm and were one of the last ones to leave at closing, we all thought it was not enough time, this was a true reflection of "time does fly, when you having fun!" This is thanks to the Golden Bee Team. From the monument I made the booking, to the secret support they provided my best friend to have a secret cake delivered!!! Entrance for my party was smooth to the VIP area and having private access to the bar was even better. The bar staff and bouncers where friendly and where also enjoying the celebrations with us and keeping my guest happy. Great music and was taken back to the good old 90's R& B classics. Defo celebrated in style of good music. This was all under a very affordable price. I want to express by biggest thanks to Paige for finding a very valuable item and kept it safe till I could return to collect it. It Is very rare when you lose something valuable it gets retuned. Golden Bee is defiantly a place of style, fun, great service, affordable prices with no trouble/ safe venue. Thank you Golden Bee Team. Me and my party will be back for another night as it was replay the great night again

    The venue is very nice, clean. The music was good. Hip-hop and RnB. However the food was terrible, flavourless. Barely Mediterranean. The bottomless drinks were heavily watered down or had no alcohol in it. I kept an eye on the staff to see if they actually add any alcohol to the drinks. Which they didn't. It was a waste of money. Do not book this if you want to get your moneys worth of food and alcohol. I will never go here again or recommend it to anyone.

    Terrible experience. While the venue and music were good, the management was appalling. My best friend chose to celebrate her birthday here, but the management ruined it. One of our friends, who had purchased a ticket, was denied entry because the head of security cited some vague "policy." What policy? She paid for her ticket and arrived on time. The staff kept going on about policy, and one of the security guards was visibly high. We won't be coming back. If you care so much about your “venue rules” make sure your security doesn’t do drug during their shifts.

    We went to Golden Bee Bottomless brunch this weekend and I have to say it was really disappointing. The bar staff were all so miserable (other people there we got talking to also commented on this) with one being particularly rude for no reason. This really negatively impacted the vibe. The 'rum punch' was weak and poorly made (made with Malibu). The people preparing the food were using their bare hands! We had to go and collect our food from a different floor then bring back to our area to eat of our laps! The only friendly people were the host who greeted us and the female security guard. The dj seemed inexperienced with sometimes random song choices and poor mixing, people were sat down for most of his set. The venue hired a performer and the half an hour or so she performed was probably the best thing about this brunch. Other than her, our whole (large) group agrees all things combined it was the worst brunch we've ever been to. I recommend all to stay away , don't waste your time or money.
