Great music in lively designed club, but completely ripe off from bar team. On Thursday night we have been passing through when young lady offer us free shots and 2 cocktails for £10. We gave a try and went inside. Free shots was kind of mixed vodka with cranberry juice in the bottle of some gin which was listed on the menu and not even in the bar display. When we asked for 2 cocktails she offered us 4 small beers or 2 simply mixers so we decided go for 4 canned beers, when u wanted to pay she said a minimum payment is £20. I said it's only 2 of us and we can't spend that money on first round otherwise drinks get warm or lost. She took our drinks back without any interest. When we spoke with girl outside she told us bar has been informed about limit for card payments during a week. When we come back situation was exactly same, but after 10 minutes of discussing and double checking between each members in bar I paid £10, second drinks of same beer was £6.50 each. Personally I haven't seen such a amateurism in such a popular place for long time a gonna uave large break from thus place...GOOGLE REVIEW

One hot summer's evening, our group decided to check out Cargo as they have an outdoor area in which to enjoy the weather. However, we had a frustrating experience with a lot of friction. The entry system is odd: even though there is a bouncer standing at the perfectly accessible entrance to the outdoor area, you're expected to go to the indoor entrance to show ID (this was at 6pm, had none, let me in anyway), and then walk through the dark empty part of the venue to get outdoors - a strange exercise in compliance when the outdoor part of the venue was barely at one-third occupancy. Having found my group, a friend and I couldn't wait to grab a couple of beers. Unfortunately, the bar staff looked rather easily agitated when we asked which beers were on offer (no eye contact, no smiling, quite the opposite of good service). We were offered a choice of two brands of beer in cans at an expensive price and at room temperature. Because we'd just arrived, we didn't want to be left out of the group so we reluctantly bought ourselves the drinks. As expected, it was horrible. After about ten minutes of all of us agreeing the experience wasn't great, we migrated to The Strongroom just around the corner which was absolutely buzzing but provided a much smoother experience (with cold beers no less). Avoid.GOOGLE REVIEW

Horrible. Avoid this place. Group of 30 asked for a deal on the entry charge from £20 to £10. The girl promoting the place said this would be fine but then as we lined up half of us got told we had to pay £20. The manager got involved and didn’t handle the situation at all. What a chump. Our group was split and it ruined a night for our overseas visitors. Horrible London experience. These guys are a joke and have no customer service experience. Spend your time and money elsewhere. Youve been warned.GOOGLE REVIEW

BEST NIGHT EVER! I was scared of going after reading so many negative reviews, but I am so happy I went anyway. I booked a table for my birthday, when I got there the staff were all super friendly they showed me to my table with no problems. Just make sure to get there before 10pm if you've bought a ticket online as they won't be valid after that. The music was great, the staff were friendly and helpful.. definitely 10/10 nightGOOGLE REVIEW

Lot of negative reviews here but we had a good time. We just happened to be walking by on a Tuesday and heard the party inside. It’s small but there was a fun crowd dancing inside to a great dj. We didn’t meet the minimum but the staff was kind enough to let us use our cards anyways because we didn’t have cash. The bartenders were really friendly.GOOGLE REVIEW
