ICON Bar & Lounge
Primarily known as a post-work hangout for Media City types, at first glance Icon doesn’t stand out, especially the upper deck, which can get noisy and smoky, especially on Thursdays. Meanwhile regular sports screenings on weeknights make it a male-centric spot at the best of times. However the smoke-free lower deck is thankfully free of all this testosterone; instead there’s pumped jazz, a tiny terrace and a focus on grape, which makes it a welcome refuge for office types winding down after a run in with the boss. With fast and efficient service, we don’t really have a bad word to say about this place – just head downstairs if it all gets too much.

    This has been an absolute favourite for after work drinks for YEARS!
    non smoking area on the ground floor, a rowdier top floor for smokers, every sporting event you can think of is broadcast on screens all around, the staff is lovely and the service decent.

    The place has survived numerous bars sprouting all around, remains packed on game nights, and i can't think of a better place to watch the F1 in this city!

    Are we talking about the same ICON Bar? No darts board. However, you were right about the great staff and great ambiance. Brilliant jukebox.

    What a pleasant experience we had at Icon. We went for the Brunch on Friday and it was delicious. A real British food spot and we loved everything on the menu. The variety was small BUT who eats everything at the big brunches anyway? All the taste needs you wanted to satisfy was addressed and how great this was. And the cost - almost for free compared to many other places. Last night we dropped by the watch the cricket - we had some soup and drinks and the service was great - even had a laugh with the staff who supported the opposite side. Very nice - we will definately visit the Icon again and again. Thank you.
