Description:

The May Fair bar has undergone a metamorphosis. Inspired by splendour....

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.

Trendy Bar

We were staying at this hotel and we visited the bar only once. The drinks were very good if not a bit expensive-15-18 pounds each. The waiters gave excellent service.

We were staying at the May Fair hotel so decided to go for drinks to the bar. Quite expensive but definitely worth it. Famous mojito was our favourite! You can't beat it! Staff ok.

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.

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

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.
