Good for a casual drink and snacks after work. Wine and aperol spritz were good.

Good place to meet, but I’d probably have one drink and move on

The website showed a picture of a great view high up in the Shard. Bar 31 is on the first floor...very disappointing and simply a shameful/deceiving way to attract customers.

We went there, because on the menu online you can read a few of vegetarian meals, but those are only served untill 3 pm. I asked for some vegetarian tapas and they responded with "olives". We left the place, so sorry for that. In addition, online you see the bar is located at the 31t floor, but you find on the ground floor.

Falsely advertised, it’s actually on the ground floor of the shard with no view. Stayed for a drink, tables were dirty and a limited selection of drinks definitely not worthy. Front of house staff very nice and managed to get us a last minute table at Gong on the 53rd floor, great service and views would highly recommend booking a table there.

Complete disappointment. Had booked it because I thought it was on a high floor at the Shard. In fact it is ground floor, furthermore it looks like a glorified Starbucks. Did not bother to actually sit there

A couple of glasses of champagne in the sunshine whilst catching up with a friend is always a good way to start an evening.

The only suggestion I’d give is that if someone asks the guy outside if they can order from him, rather than saying no, say it’s champagne only as if would have saved me queuing up after asking.

The guy on the guitar was great and a lovely addition.

Arrived at Bar 31 expecting a nice romanic date with my partner only to find the football was playing, un-engaging staff, and a cue to order food which is something I did not expect. Not a great atmosphere, so decided to go to one of the restaurants on level 32.

Staff was amazing and very accommodating. Had drinks and light bites there while waiting to be seated at the GŎNG (which was a different level of pretentious) and food was super tasty. Cool, chill ambiance. Not much of a view but we caught a few last tunes from a live performance - lovely time!

Was closed the date you confirmed a table reservation for me. The staff at the shard managed to get us a table at the Gong bar instead because we travelled down from Yorkshire. So overall dissapointed with your booking for a bar that is closed on Mondays!

After accidentally booking Bar 31 instead of the Gong, the service was incredible as explained my mistake and they called through to the Gong Bar to change our reservation after trying to rebook online with no luck. I had a lovely beverage whilst waiting for our reservation to be changed. All the staff we encountered were so helpful and accommodating.

Lovely little cafe on the ground floor and a good meeting place to catch up.
