Description:

The May Fair bar has undergone a metamorphosis. Inspired by splendour. Curated by beauty. Skilled mixologists conjure dramatic signature cocktails before your eyes that will both fascinate and delight. Innovative herbs and home-made ingredients will stimulate lively infusions from our opulent martini bar, or champagne served by the flute for classic sophistication. All this, enveloped in ambient sounds, live music performances and sybaritic décor to deliver an enthralling immersive experience. Expect pure drama in the heart of London's luxury quarter. An evocative menu serves authentic dishes re-imagined with a modern flavour. Relish a lobster and pesto cream cheese bagel for breakfast, or succulent coriander lamb cutlets for brunch. As the evening arrives, wagyu beef sliders and garlic steamed clams are served straight from the striking tandoor open kitchen.

Four of us were seated on a Friday night impromptu visit which was impressive in a contemporary bar with great decor and lighting however the clientele was less desirable. Staff were friendly and cocktail list extensive.

My girlfriends and I went for last drink on Valentine's eve (21.00) and hooray hooray we ordered a bottle of melbac 2013 and got 2015! True it is written on the menu 'depends on stock availability' though prior we were given the chance to look at the bottle the waiter had opened it and poured it! Only after the first... More

Four Drinks charged at £82 no problem. But why charge services charges. Is it that difficult to deliver four Drinks with out having to pay services charges. Next they will charge for seating you. Shame

Was super busy but got a table within 10 mins on a Saturday night, a first for a green park joint! Excellent service and great atmosphere... Is just the right kind of loud! Will come again.

Been there on Friday, it was busy. I had to wait a bit to order my drinks but the cocktail were phenomenal. Perfect location, nice bar, live dj. It was fun. The right place to start your night out.

Neighbourhood Profile
Mayfair
Set beside some of London's best parks and home to world-class galleries, luxurious hotels, and famed thoroughfares, the ultra upscale Mayfair is one of London's most exclusive haunts. Here the shopping is haute, the dining is exquisite, and the nightlife is vibrant. A casual stroll through the area’s chic streets will reveal that Michelin stars and chauffeured cars are practically the norm here. Even if you're on a tight budget, this exceptionally well connected swath of Central London is worth exploring, if only for the chance to take a peak at the goings on of upper crust English society.
