Great concept cocktail bar, the bartenders make some cracking cocktails, I have to agree with some of the other reviews, to make the most of your money get there early for the happy hour.
I've recently been here for two separate occasions one for a late night birthday party and the other for afterwork leaving drinks. Both nights I had a really good time.
Highly recommended if you're in the area.
Great bar been working in the areas for years and never even knew it was there, cocktails are brilliant, happy hour is decent and good value for money.
Think they can do more with the rain theme but its still very cool.
My mate held her leaving party here and it was epic, so much fun, great cocktails, DJ and atmospher.
I think we will be booking up our xmas bash here too.
I recommend getting there for the happy hour to make the most of the evening 241 of the whole menu.
This is our new fav spot in waterloo for after work.
Great concept, the lads behind the bar make some cracking cocktails, I think they might be new we overheard a few people say these guys are more friendly then they guys before.
Either way we had a great evening, ambiance was lovely, mood was just right and the gradual switch to a party environment was timed perfectly.
The girls and I were looking for a place to have a few drinks, we popped into Carriage 34 thinking we would have a few cocktails before heading off to the Fire Station (which now closed) but ended up staying for the whole evening.
Great bar to watch the football, large screens that you can see from most areas of the bar, didnt need to book a table or area we just turned up and welcomed by the bar staff.
Will be back.
Awesome night, we were here on Sat 8th Feb for a friends birthday party, it was fairly packed-out when I arrived with a number of other birthday parties. Music was great, crowd were lovely, we really got on well with the other groups and the service was spot on!
Will be back for sure.
I was here over the weekend, on arrival the bar was buzzing! I thought I was early but clearly the party had started without the birthday boy. Brilliant night, great cocktails, wicked DJ and friendly staff. Couldn't have asked for anything more from the night.
Awesome venue, will be back.

Don't bother going unless you reserve a table.Got there soooooo early for quick meet up with a friend ,nice and quiet so we could chat,bought a drink and sat down.5 mins later a reserved sign put on the table ,bartender said table booked from 6 pm.As were all the other tables.Asked for money back for drinks and left,what's the point in having a bar when people can't "drop in"? Maybe the good reviews are when a) it's a booked event b) at the weekend without the pre commute crowd.Pub down the road better,got a drink and a table and atmosphere,carriage 34 empty on arrival,nuff said.

I don't think I could have welcomed the new year in any better, in previous years I’ve always paid extortionate amounts on big ticket venues and nights that have generally been a massive disappointment but I am so glad that I was convinced by my friends to join them at Carriage 34.
The night was sublime!
Fab bar, has to be one of the best in Waterloo, we had a great xmas party, the nibbles and cocktails were lovely!
The screens with the moving train are really something special.
Will be back soon.
I was here last week for a department Christmas party, its defiantly ranked in my top ten seasonal parties ever!
Food was great, service was decent and the music was wicked!
I'll be back in the new year, keep up the good work!
We recently held our Christmas party at Carriage 34 and we had a great time.
Highly recommend if you’ve not already arranged your Christmas shindig, it is a brilliant venue, I would say we had about 150 people in the venue and we probably could have had another 50+ nicely. The canapés we really very nice and very good value for money, the bar manager help arrange our big night and made it a night to remember.
I would like to say a big thank you all to those that were involved we will be returning in the future for other events.
This bar is mental!
Before heading down this Saturday I read the reviews so felt I had to leave one of my own to share my experience.
Atmosphere is brilliant, people are all really friendly and chilled out. It was just really nice to go out with some like minded people who are there to have a good time.
This actually was a great discovery for my group of friends and I.
I like the concept and I am really looking forward to the NYE themed party, for the ticket price I think its very reasonable.
I do hope to return before then, for a few more cocktails.
Had a great Saturday night at Carriage 34 will be returning in a few weeks for another birthday party, we had such a good time my flat mate decided to book his 28th here also.
Only thing I will say is if you want something to eat on the night (we were not as organised as some other parties we shared our space with) you need to pre-ordered the platters, it would have been nice to be able to order some nibbles adhoc but it didnt really take anything away from the night.
Other then the snack issue (which was our poor planning - School boy error) Perfect venue for a birthday party!
I read a few of the reviews on this site before making my way down to Carriage 34 last night to checkout the live music night called nxtstop, I have to agree with them its an epic night with a great crowd of people.
Not been to any of their weekend events yet so cant comment on those but have made plans to venture back next Saturday with the girls.
Came by this evening by chance, overheard a few lads talking about it on the train and thought it sounded interesting, my GF and I love live music and as we were going to be in the area thought we might as well check it out … some truly great performers, we will be back next week for sure!
Halloween was a seriously creepy night … In the best possible way ;-), Ghost train was an explosion of good times. #nxtstop last night was also EPIC!. I love how C34 has opened up so close to where I live and always has something going on.
Carriage 34 is seriously putting Lower Marsh Street on the map, before a few weeks ago I had never even walked down this street and I only work around the corner.
Had a few good nights here the live music night on Wednesday really worked well, looking forward to seeing next weeks acts!
I had countless messages the next day from friends and family telling me that they had a GREAT night at Carriage34. The music selection was impeccable, the DJ played all-most all our song requests, he has a mammoth selection of tracks, thanks DJ Davey and Carriage 34 team for a wicked night.
We have held two seminars at Carriage34 in the last few months and I have been extremely pleased with both evenings. Our clients have provided us with some very positive feedback which has reassured the continuation of holding future events with Carriage 34.
The Halloween effects on the screen were sooooo good, really added to the atmosphere, I’m so glad we decided to go here. Totally agree with ‘Tamara’ the prohibition NYE theme sounds really exciting me and the and gang will defiantly be spending NYE here for sure!
This bar is great for those late night owls like myself, the night continued to about 4am. What a cool spot to party in on the south side of the river. DJ is great, he has a great selection of tunes, I thought he was brilliant!
I seriously recommend checking this bar out if you're someone that likes to party till the early hours of the morning!
Great times to be had!
What a party!
Came here a few weeks ago for my friend’s birthday. We had a real fun time, the cocktails were the best ever tasted amazing.
Non pretentious crowd, staff were real good looking and friendly. I can’t wait to go back.
Went for a drink Saturday after having this bar recommended to me. It was fairly tame to start with but by mid-evening it started to really fill out.
The setting is great, very cool, cocktails were great, worth giving it a go purely because it's something different in London.
I can see myself venturing back one evening.
The music was great, people were friendly, decore was amazing. If you're looking for a bar with some real character and something different from your run of the mill the Waterloo is when you can find it.
I don’t really like mainstream bars and clubs much so my friends birthday I was on the hunt to find a cool bar, I found carriage 34 and had one of the best nights ive had in a while!
The music was great, the people we friendly and carriage really looked after our entire party. So rare to find a London location that ticks every box,but this bar really does!
I often go out in London and Carriage 34 was highly recommended by a friend. We went at the weekend for my friends 24th and it didn't disappoint! It's such a quirky venue, nothing like any club we had been to before!
Best night out I have had in a long time.
Love this place so much and the fact it's open till 4am it makes it extra special.
I've been to carriage34 a fair ammount of times now and I can safely say im a regular. Took my friend there for her Birthday and she had a great night.
I really enjoyed the venue and service very friendly and fun, I would advise getting an area if you are somebody that likes to sit down a lot as there's few places to sit down. If you havn't been yet I would definitely advise you to check it out.
I visited carriage 34 last week for the Halloween party and had a wonderful evening the bar was decorated really well, staff looked the part and music was perfect for the occasion. Can't wait to see what they will do for Christmas and New Years.
Wow! what a great night, love this new bar!
What a cool idea, we got there late in the evening and didn't really get a chance to see much of the moving train effect but I really liked how the videos matched the tunes that the DJ was playing.
Had such a good time I booked an area for my birthday bash, can't wait to come back really looking forward to it :-)
Where did this place come from? One of the best bars and nights I've had in a long time, real cool vibe everyone is out to just have a good night. Music was perfect, cocktails tasted great and it's open till late!
Think I've found my new favourite bar!
I came here a couple of days ago for the first time with a few friends and we had a great time.
The atmosphere and music were spot on and the bar service was super fast and friendly.
We stayed all night and left really happy and will definitely be back soon!
Reading the reviews before trying to find carriage 34 really did help, looking for the clock when trying to find the bar is good advice, it is so unassuming you could easily walk past.
I loved the little details in this bar, it's really decorated nicely, the wood really makes it feel warm and inviting. Brilliant bar for Waterloo very impressive can't wait to go back to try a few more cocktails :-p
We had a great time at carriage 34. It was just the right balance of great cocktails, music and atmosphere ... And it's open to really late.
More importantly my sister who's birthday night it was had the best time ever.
Thank you very much :-)
Carriage 34 is without a doubt my favorite place to go on a Friday night after a long week at work.
The cocktails are excellent and the music always gets me into that party mood.
If you're looking for a cool unique bar with second to none service and lots of laughs make your way to Carriage 34.
Great cocktail bar, with an amazing selection of cocktails and bartenders who really know their stuff!
I can wholeheartedly recommend Carriage 34 it is brilliant if you want good night out that's open late.
Bit of advice, be sure to book in advance if you want a table, it's getting busier and busier every time I go, popularity is really growing.
I booked a table for myself and 7 friends, occasion was girls night out!
We had an absolute ball, met some great people from other parties and the cocktails were just amazing.
If you're looking for a good night out with great staff and company this is the place!
Really Enjoyed my time last night. Went down to Carriage 34 with some of my girlfriends for a few cocktails after work and had a really good night! The staff were so friendly and the drinks weren't even that expensive, the happy hour offer was good value for money.
Great new bar, really enjoyed my birthday here, looking forward to coining back for the New Years Eve party and having another wonderful evening with my girls :-).
Thank you carriage 34 for making the evening so special.
Quickly becoming one of the most popular bars in Waterloo.
The cut has always been known as the more popular street for pubs and bars but with Carriage34 in the centre of Lower Marsh its brought back some life to the old market street.
The decor is clean and classy, the vintage theme is different, service was good, drinks were made well. Really enjoyable evening.
Great night yesterday, my crystal ball tells me there will be many a decent night @Carriage34 the Halloween party was the best! I’ll 100% be celebrating new years here, these guys know how to throw a good party!
I’ve been working in the media industry for some time now and regularly arrange offsite meetings in interesting venues around London. Carriage 34 has become one of my favourites for a number of reasons, the concept is brilliant and innovative, the service is to a good standard, the drink prices are reasonable and the atmosphere is uplifting.
I have no doubt that I will be back soon.
I was allured into his bar by the revellers that were congregating around the entrance, my curiosity got the better of me so I decided to venture into the unknown to see what the buzz was all about, I found myself in what has to be the best bar in Waterloo.
Keep up the good work, its always a pleasure to have a drink in an establishment that makes you feel very welcomed and appreciative of your custom. Highly recommended for that after work pick-me-up.
“Whiskey, two ice cubes .. you know the drill Hector” ;-).
Midweek drinking in some peoples book is a bit of a taboo but if you’re going to join me on the dark side get yourself down to Carriage 34 in Waterloo. It has a really cool appearance and does some great drinks. Hector (barman) get those cocktails ready I’m in need of watering ;-P!
I love this bar, I held my 25th birthday here and we asked if we could dress up in 1920’s costumes and they had no problem with it. What a great night I think we’ll be back for NYE.
And thanks All In London I would never have found this place if it wasn't listed on your site ;-)
I heard about Carriage 34 from a client that lives in the area, she kept mentioning this brilliant bar she stumbled upon via a private event she attended a few weeks ago. I felt like I had to see this place for myself, I did and was NOT disappointed. Very impressive!
I would like to commend and thank the Carriage team for the smooth running of my pre-engagement party drinks, they were extremely helpful during the organising process, all of my guests complemented us on a great choice of venue. Your team certainly made it an outstanding evening, the pictures of us over the years on the screen was brilliant, such a great idea my fiancé was very pleased with how the whole Sunday worked out. Highly recommended private hire venue, 10/10 from us
Was in London for a girls weekend and found this bar via All In London, me and the girls thought it looked really cool and it would fit in with our Gatsby themed fancy dress night. We planned to start the night at Carriage34 before heading to the west -end but ended up staying till the end.
Had a great night out with the girls, we will definitely be returning when next down South.
Great bar, good service, its big improvement from its pervious setup the people that have taken this over have done a brilliant job in turning the place around. It looks very much the same from the exterior but inside has been refurbished to a very high standard. Very nice!
Last week I was asked to arrange drinks for my colleagues, my brief was to find something different, and I found it in Carriage 34.
If you work in the City it is worth the couple minutes train ride on the Waterloo and City line from Bank and its only a short walk to the bar from the station.
The atmosphere was great from the start (arrived 18.00ish), music worked well, the cool vintage train theme, the carriage seats and the visuals all came together nicely. We will surely be back.
My husband and I attend the theatre regularly, we visited Carriage 34 some time ago on recommendation from some friends and now begin our evenings by first having a drink or two before show time. Highly recommended for pre-theatre drinks undoubtedly there are some other nice places in the area but this is our FAVOURITE by far.
We were recommended this bar by the concierge of the hotel we were staying in, at first glance I wasn't sure if we had the right place but once we stepped though the unassuming entrance it was brilliant, the decor is lovely, the seating is extremely comfortable and cocktails were wonderful . The bartender who brought our drinks to the table was very friendly, the overall service throughout the evening was excellent. I’d happily recommend this bar to others a very enjoyable evening.
We were rather demanding with our requests so felt it deserving of a review that reflected the success of the evening. The staff were extremely helpful, polite and observant throughout the evening, the selection of canapés were excellent and the recommended entertainment by Carriage 34 was well received by all.
Hope to return for another great night soon.
The over 21 policy really does make a massive difference in clientele.
To find a bar that makes a nice cocktail in Waterloo is rare, they make the classics very well although the presentation lacks a little when it gets busy.
A few buddies and I swung by Carriage 34 after being lured in with a promotional flyer offer of a free beer … we ended up spending the whole night there.
I particularly enjoyed the moving train effect which later becomes a screen that then show the music videos that the DJ was playing, very cleaver!
I will be spreading the word and coming back soon.
I will definitely be celebrating my Bday there again next year!
Having equally experienced the London bar and clubbing scene for many years, I can highly recommend Carriage over so many other venues, it is a good all rounder that ticks a lot of the boxes for a good night.
This place is amazing, friendly staff with top notch cocktails to go with it!
I suggest to arrive as early as possible because it can get quite busy on the weekends.
I especially recommend 'The Flaming Zombie' that is always served with a little extra flare!
Great bar, good location, takes a bit of looking to find the place but it's an all round winner. This place is perfect for a night out with your mates. We booked out a carriage for the evening it didn't seat our whole group but we only used the table at the start after that we were all up dancing.
Dropped in on the off chance last week.
The bar was busy early evening but the staff were great and I was really impressed by the willingness to make drinks to my spec.
The rest of the evening was just as good as the bar got busier and the DJ arrived.
I have no hesitation in recommending this bar, I was very impressed.
I've always have a great time here. The bar staff are fantastic and attentive and their cocktails are awesome.
A great place to go for a few drinks after a hard day at work or if you are looking for a big party on a Friday or Saturday night, this is a good place to go.
Carriage 34 nice balance of areas for both intimacy if you’re on a date and drinks if you’re with a friends. The cocktails were made well, the bartender is charming and the place looks beautiful.
Thursday nights here are probably the best in Waterloo, the DJ’s turn up about 21.00ish I’m not sure what time they finish, I try to stay till my last train but the tunes are too sweet I’ve ended up catching a cab a few times! if you’re in the area get yourself down, if you’re not in the area get yourself down.
I like it! It has a great atmosphere and very welcoming team behind the bar. It is nice for after work drinks and perfect walking distance to the station to catch that oh so early last train “blast you public transport”.
I will be back and recommend to all.
LOOK FOR THE CLOCK!
Is great advice for anyone trying to find this hidden gem. Great nights, great music and fabulous atmosphere. I knew it was only a matter of time before the word was out on how great a find Carriage 34 is. “It was Waterloos best kept secret but now becoming its worst kept secret” should be their slogan lol, clearly I don't work in marketing ;-P.
The popularity of this bar has seriously grown from its opening, it is just a really nice cool place to have a drink, socialise and dance the night away.
Lovely vintage look bar with a modern twist, the three screens create a moving effect which I can't say I've seen before. Cocktails are nice and not overly priced. The fact that it's a pub converted into a bar got forgotten quicker then I could drink my martini.
Nice spot to have a drink before catching a show.
A colleague hosted a client event here some weeks ago and we were surprised at how well planned it was. I was dubious as I had been here before the refurbishment and couldn't visualise how much better it could possibly be, I was very wrong! The bar manager and his team did a MAGNIFICANT job, the interior is very nice, the vintage theme went down a treat. After the party had died down we shared a bottle of wine with the owner who explained the concept in more detail and his plans for the future, we cant wait, it all sounded very exciting. Thank you Carriage 34 team for a great night!
Is it a pub? Is it a bar? Is it a club? ITS … ‘SUPER-PUB,BAR,CLUB’! lol, I couldn't tell you exactly how best to categorise this place but it serves beer, wine, cocktails, champagne and has a great DJ. This is one bar that doesn't want to be pigeonholed. Keep spinning those tunes Davey, I’ll be back soon with my dancing shoooeeessss to party the night away ... again!
We were here on a Saturday evening for a birthday party and we had a brilliant time, the birthday boy had pre-ordered an assortment of canapés which were very nicely presented and tasted lovely. The cocktails are great and the service couldn’t be faulted, drink prices are also very reasonable.
My wife and I were very impressed with how the whole night was managed and hope to return when next in London.
This is a really unique bar, well worth checking out, its something a bit different. I've been here both during the week and on a Saturday. Early weekdays are more chilled and relaxed really good place to have catch up drinks or a date ... Later in the week it gets a lot lot busier becoming more of a party vibe.
Recommended that you get here early the place got busy really quickly. It's not the easiest place to find but some good advice was to look for the clock. The outside looks like the place is closed (apart of the speakeasy theme I imagine) and is no refelection of how nice the interior is. Staff were on the ball and helpful, music was really good and the cocktails were nice. There's really not anything else like this in waterloo so it's nice to have something different in the area. We all had a lovely evening.
Was here last night for a birthday party, had a very good time its the perfect birthday venue for an older crowd. The average age last night was about 30. Drinks were reasonably priced, everyone was really friendly. DJ was brilliant, played some amazing tunes that I've not heard in a long time :-). It was one of those perfect nights out everything was just spot on. Highly recommend!
These guys are brilliant, the saying “well oiled machine comes to mind” they arranged a private party a few weeks back as a surprise birthday party for my wife and her twin sister, it couldn't have gone any better. I was on a budget but they worked with me from start to finish to make sure the night was a success and we all had a great night. Will be back soon!
Thank you Carriage 34 team for hosting such a great birthday party for Lizzie, she had a fabulous time, her and her friends have been talking about it all week she is extremely happy with how the night went. I’m really looking forward to coming back into town for the New Years party, our tickets have been purchased ;-).
If you’re aged between 25-40 and looking for a great late night place to party in waterloo you’ve found it. Such a great place to have a drinks with friends and dance the night away. Its something a little different and fresh from other bars and almost feels like it shouldn’t be in Waterloo but some place trendier. Two thumbs up ;-)
