Steve C left this review about Revolution

This venue was known as the Standard before being absorbed into the Revolution chain of bars. There are steps up to the entrance and although there were no bouncers on the door when I visited early on Monday evening there have been every time I’ve walked past later in the night. There is a little foyer at the entrance where I can imagine money exchanging hands for entrance at the weekends, but I may be wrong. There is a small bar area to the left that was roped off during my visit and I didn’t visit the vodka attic or clubroom that I saw directions towards. I did sneak out the back to have a butchers at the paved and decked garden that I thought to be surprisingly large for a place in such a central location. The main bar area comprises some sofas on the far and left hand walls and more conventional tables and chairs by the front windows. In the centre of the room are high tables and chairs and the bar is located along the right hand wall. The music was a mix of dance and R & B and flashing lights were bouncing off the disco ball that hangs from the ceiling. There are a couple of plasma screens on the back wall that were showing Revolution TV which is the advertisement channel for this chain of bars.
The bar is stocked with standard draught products alongside San Miguel which was served by a polite young barman. Food is served all day and all of the tables had condiments on them. This is not the cheapest place with the mains coming in around the £9 mark, but every Monday the food is half price.

I’m a bit long in the tooth to enjoy these types of bars and to be honest I still wasn’t the biggest fan of them in my youth.
