No bar with this address could be called downmarket, and the street-level rope and bouncer at this basement locale signals its intentions early on. Its part cocktail bar, part club, part restaurant, all three merging into one at some point so you might have someone spinning around with a martini in their hand nearby you as you tuck into your exquisite prawn risotto. Music runs from RnB to ambient and the general feel is one of refined style.

Love love love Aura! It never disappoints me. Great music, upmarket venue, glamorous girls & gorgeous boys (including the staff!) make it the place I go back to whenever I want a good night out. I agree with the reviews below that it's exclusive, but you'll enjoy it once you get in!

I usually go to Aura on a sunday and have a wicked time but I went last friday and it was crap comparing to a sunday in my opinion. I really wished I didn't pay £20 to get in. I wasnt liking the music at all. However, sundays are banging if you love R'n'B and Hip Hop, people dancing on tables and chairs are always a good sign! The day of the week you go to Aura on is very important.

I love the atmosphere in aura, the crowd is very upmarket but they have a unpretensious edge, thats hard to find in a upmarket venue. The music is great from reggea to rb to hiphop and a bit of funky house. Best night for me is Sunday night but if you want a more laid back night try tuesday or friday. I have been to a lot of clubs and i rate it as one of the best.

My friends & I attended this club for the so-called 'Brit Awards Party'...Hmmm? Well, yeah we got in for free but the drinks were ridiculously priced and the music contained badly mixed R&B. The previously mentioned was the good things about this club. DO NOT GO TO AURA!!!

My daughter and her friends were refused entry into your club last night on the grounds of rule changing and calibre by your female outside attendant (bouncer) even though they were on the guest list she did not look on the guest list to see if they were on it which they were...can someone give me an explanation ASAP!!!!!!!

i ve been to aura every single night of the week...but the best night has to be on a tuesday, its got the mix of house and rnb the dj's are always good and the crowd is friendly...they also have some form of entertainment...went twice once there was a bellydancer (nice idea) and another time they had american cheerleaders which was really different...if AURA then do TUESDAYS.

Nice atmophere on a Sunday night, Ladies look pretty guys looking hot, nice atmosphere. I think it attracts a lot of rich people, most people booking tables, champagne every where. Music is great mixture of everything, but hard to get into luckly enough my cousin new the guys at the door so there was no problem.Best to get there very very early. You will love it if you love beautifull people.x

I went to Aura last week, and had a really good time there were six of us, and the ladies really made us feel welcome, although there was quite a bit of attitude from the male contingent, who clearly thought that because they thought they had more money than us, they could be rude. Nevertheless, we really enjoyed the club, and enjoyed it even more when we followed one particularly rude gentleman outside, only to discover his middle of the range merc had been clamped a\nd was about to be towed.

Loved Aura - amazing! We had an awesome night there! - Definately worth booking a table although can be very expensive - over 1000! Aura is very stylish and full of good looking people - seen a lot of celebs there too having a blast! Definately go to Aura! Also go to Mo*vida (owned by the same people) for a great night out - thats what London is about!

I had a great time at Aura. Me any my friends has a table. The music was good. But the prices are VERY OVERRATED..and at the end of the day its just not worth it.

Oh dear. Eastern European bouncers in cheap suits with only a rudimentary grasp of English taking themselves very seriously. A 20GBP entrance fee. This place needs to be the business. It is not. The music has its moments, although up to you if you like a sax accompanying whatever is playing. A bit like the Tube. No, this place takes itself too seriously for what it is, but then there will always be those foreigners (and not just the friends of the bouncers) who believe that because of the location and the cost, this is as good as it gets. More fool them.

There are much better options avaliable. The place was far too stuffy, hardly enough space even though I had a table, bouncers were pricks..It was just me and 3 girls getting in as well, and they still made us wait for quite a while. Clubs such as Tramp or Movida put shame to this place, its not worth the money or the time, try it once if you want, but be prepared to be disappointed...

I booked dinner for four for Valentines Day, soley because it was late opening and as a diabled person I didn't want to have to have dinner and then move on to another bar. At the time of booking I was unaware thet it was a members only club, and was not told this when I rang up. We arrived for dinner and the food was fantastic. After dinner, the bill was brought to us without us asking, as we hadn't finished drinking. We then continued to buy our drinks from the bar for about 30 minutes before a member of staff came and told us we had to move from our table as it had been booked for the club. We reluctantly stood up with our drinks, and then 10 minutes later were asked to leave the club as we weren't members. I am absolutely disgusted with the way we were treated. We spent alot of money in the club on our meal and were prepared to spend more money in the club on drinks. The staff members had ample opportunity to tell us thet we couldn't remain in the club after dinner, without embarrassing us by asking us to leave. I could have been told when I rang up to book, or when the bill came, or even when they asked us to leave the table. It was very embarrassing, and also ruined our evening. DO NOT GO THERE.

I do not rate this place at all. The DJ was awful (think stopping songs every now and then so people can shout out the words cheesey wedding style). Maybe the people there have money but it does not buy you class. Nobody was rude or had attitude, however I just feel this place is extremely over rated. Me and my friends had a table (still really cramped) and the prices were SO not worth the price that this club seems to think it deserves...if this is 'exclusive' they can keep it. Better night out anywhere else in London, take your pick of other fab destinations (Funky Buddha, 10 Rooms n Sugar Reef) and stay away from Aura.

I've been going to Aura since it first opened and its fab. The guys are stunning and all the girls are beautiful too. It attracts alot of rich people so there is alot of attitude but its funny if you take it with a pinch of salt. If you want fun and youre single, Aura is definately the place to go, you can take your pick of gorgeous people. The atmosphere is brilliant, the music is great. Its is hard to get into and it does get very very busy, so if you get in, enjoy!
