We miss you!

Thanks for stopping by

Unfortunately due to government restrictions we are closed at the moment.

It is unlikely that NBS will reopen this year - we are a small, independent venue and do not have the space or facilities to readily provide a "substantial meal" as required by the new Tier 2 rules.

Regrettably many of the local independent food operators we usually collaborate with are also remaining closed - our neighbourhood is having a really tough time! 


As soon as the restrictions are relaxed we can't wait to resume shaking up our signature cocktails and welcoming you safely back to our suburban speakeasy.


Until then please keep safe, stay in your bubble and as a community continue doing our part to bring an end to Covid-19 so we can all look forward to 2021!

Virtual, socially distanced hugs

Team NBS


About NBS

We are an independent cocktail bar in the heart of Bloomsbury. Like the original Bloomsbury Set we welcome you as you are, for the ideas you bring and the value you add. 


Visit our cozy basement oasis to catch up with friends, to start your night out, or for an intimate date. 

The pineapple

The pineapple has been a symbol of hospitality since the 15th century, when it was first brought to Europe from the Caribbean. As a guest, there was no greater honour than to be served pineapple because it meant the hosts had spared no expense. Thus the symbol came to signify gracious gatherings. Welcome to New Bloomsbury Set, we hope you feel at home here.



Come down to our place and be treated as a VIP with our cosy bunkers. With room for up to 8 it's a hidden treasure away from the bar. So whether you're celebrating with friends or want a more private area with that extra important date, we've got you covered.
