Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Bar Opus

Very anonymous bar / restaurant housed under a corner of a modern office block adjacent to Snow Hill station. Having walked straight by a hundred times, I thought I should put prejudices aside and at least give the place a go. Although not large inside, the high ceiling does nothing to stop it sounding cavernous, but the full-height windows along the main façade do at least admit a decent amount of natural light. There are also a number of patio tables outside under cover of the main building above. There is no way that you would expect any real ale in a place like this, so its absence is hardly a disappointment, but the number of draught keg offerings is also pretty limited too. However, Estrella Damm seems to be the main beer here, and its new Inedit (a "malt & wheat beer brewed with spices") was being trialled, so ignoring the £6.00 price tag my visit proved slightly more interesting than expected.

Danny O'Revey left this review about Bar Opus

Plush modern cocktail bar and cafe/kitchen, part of the new Snow Hill Offices. Its sleek, high ceilinged and light, with eye-nerving diamond wallpaper over the large end wall.

Long bar serving cocktails and drinks such as Estrella, Suffolk cider and keg Bombadier from appropriately fancy over the top pumps. There is an open kitchen on the opposite side and there is some outside seating adjoining the new tram lines, adding to the cafe culture atmosphere.

Not a place to spend a lot of time, its too clean & modern, but was full of people catching a light bite and drink.
