Archangel is a restaurant and bar serving Eastern European food, with a cocktail bar and restaurant on one floor and a night club in the basement.
You might be surprised to find a suitable place on High Street Kensington to relax with a drink after work, but that's just what Archangel Kensington can give you.
A Baltic-inspired bar/restaurant/nightclub located at the former Bar Cuba venue, Archangel offers an unusual and eclectic drink selection and a mid-sized dance floor where you can find everything from salsa lessons to retro hits, depending on the night of the week.
The two-level bar has a calming ambiance, with rich red walls, chandeliers and plenty of angel statues (naturally). Archangel stocks a large selection of Eastern European beers and ciders.
Archangel Kensington will give you a unique blend of food and drinks for the price you pay. The queues aren't burdensome, the service is good, and closing time is late for the area - Archangel is open until 2am Monday to Saturday and until 1am on Sunday.
It's not necessarily the place to go for a wild night out on the town, but if you need to unwind after a hard day at the office, you've found just the spot.
