The Reynolds Bar

Hidden from view behind Charing Cross Hospital, our Reynolds Bar is a gem in the heart of Hammersmith – step inside and you’ll see what this space has to offer.

If you’re looking for a quiet drink after lectures, or a place to relax with your friends where you won’t have to pay extortionate London prices, then look no further! We are the only Imperial bar to have a pool table, darts and more to keep you entertained!

Reynolds Bar Refurbishment

And in just as exciting news, we’re refurbishing Reynolds Bar! ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣Those of you who’ve been around for a while will be well-aware of the many consultations and discussions held on our Reynolds Bar and Café over the years. ⁣⁣⁣⁣One of our goals for this year was to follow up on these consultations and push for change.⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣We’ve been able to secure an investment from College which will finally allow us to put our ideas and suggestions into action and undertake a refurbishment of both the bar and café spaces.⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣


The planning for this project has already started, we’ve already held its Kick-off meeting which included key representatives from both ICU and our own ICSMSU.⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣This project will be a culmination of all our previous consultations on the Reynolds Bar, which will form the basis of this work. This project and its funding is independent from other prospective projects, such as the Faculty’s developments arising from the St Mary’s sale, but we of course hope to ensure our work complements the other developments taking place too.


As you know, the Reynolds bar is a Union-owned space and so this project will be Union/ICSMSU-led.⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣We want to share as much detail as we can as conversations progress, but in the meantime if you would like to discuss this project further, please email

Hosting an Event
If you’d like to book out Reynolds Bar to host your own event, visit this page for more information


Reynolds Bar is the home to many of our infamous events, serving as the main venue for  Freshers’ Fortnight, RAG week, sports nights, and our infamous Bops to name a few.


Wednesdays are Sports Nights – everyone is welcome whether you’re a Club member or not. Come on down and enjoy a great night with friends, grab a few drinks and then dance the night away as we move into a Club Night or go and visit a local club afterwards.


Fridays often play host to our  legendary Bops where club Reynolds opens its doors. We turn the music up and the lights down, and let you party until 02:00.


We also have a giant screen cleverly disguised as a painting where we can screen films, TV and major sporting events – if there is anything particular you would like us to show please let us know and we will do what we can.
Food and Drink

We serve a wide range of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages at student friendly prices, with regular promotions throughout the term. 

By day, Taste Imperial runs a college café which is open from 8am to 3pm and serves food and hot drinks (discounted for students!) to keep you nourished through lectures.
By night, Reynolds Bar serves a range of tasty Pizzas and other delightful comfort food. It’s 2 Pizzas for £8.00 every week-day from 17:00!
Come and support the Reynolds Bar, as all profits made goes back into ICU’s funds to support the various activities they provide for you.
