I have always seen Revolution as a cheap and cheerful stop in a bigger night out. That was until I visited the one in Beaconsfield for my brother’s birthday.
With bars all around the country, including all the major cities, there is a big chance you have already stumbled upon or seen them. And having visited the ones in Preston and Manchester, I wasn't expecting anything out of the ordinary. That was until my brother told me we were going there for a meal!
If I'm honest, I wasn't sure how that was going to work. Revolution for me equaled vodka nightclubs and, while I enjoy a vibrant atmosphere when having a meal, the idea of my food bobbing down my throat to clubbing music gave me indigestion before I even got there. But how mistaken was I?!?! We arrived and the atmosphere was that of a funky bar and restaurant and we had a designated party organizer who dealt with our group and guided us through all our option.
A platter of mini fish and chips, beef sandwiches, burgers, chicken goujons, cheesy melts and twenty vodka shots and two cocktail pitchers later, the lights were dimmed, the disco ball lights turned on and the music changed from somewhat vibrant but sedate to full party mode. By which time we were more than ready to get up and dance.
Our table was always been cleared of dead glasses and even when they were in full clubbing swing with two rows of waiting customers at the bar, the event organizer managed to come back to our table and check how we were doing.
The service was great; the food reasonable, yummy and generous; the cocktails dangerous and the music contagious. It was brilliant. And the best thing? Because we had everything in one place and didn't have to move around I didn't get wet on my party gear or had to walk in ridiculously high heels from one venue to another. An all-around winner.
They are also open during the day for food and drinks. Definitely worth checking.
Children: Maybe during the day only.
