Imperial College Union Bar

  • Prince Consort Road (map of this place)
  • SW7 2AZ
  • Monday-Friday 12:00-14:00; 17:00-23:00. Additionally during term-time: Sunday 18:00-22:30, Wednesday and Friday to 01:00


An ever-changing selection of real ales priced �1.50-�2.50. Brakspear and AAA seem to come round more often than anything else. The usual selection of big-name lagers, stouts and spirits, plus scrumpy on tap.


Crisps and microwaved pies and pasties are available from the bar; the adjoining Da Vinci's Cafe Bar sells Chilli (�2.50 a plate), Pizzas (�4.50 for a 12" pizza with any two toppings) and other student foods at reasonable prices. The vegetarian selection is as good as the non-. To some extent, you get what you pay for. Reduced catering service during undergraduate vacations.

Service and Ambience

Busy during termtime, especially on Wednesday and Friday evenings. Moderately smoky. Reasonable service. Full of students. Technically customers have to be members of Imperial College Union or an affiliated body to gain access to the premises; in practice nobody cares, except on Wednesdays and Fridays after 9pm, when an appropriate identity card is required to gain entry.


One room, with wooden tables and benches. More seating is available in Da Vinci's Cafe Bar next door.


Convenient toilets, not always particularly clean. Full disabled access. Dart board.
