    Possibly my favorite place in London. Amazing setting, excellent cocktails and just killer live music every night. Perfect place for some relaxed listening to classic covers of all stripes.

    A very fancy bar, with accordingly fancy prices. £65 for 4 gin and tonics. However it's a great place for the start of a date and they will be suitably impressed. Recommended!

    Ambience, Mixology, Music & Quirkiness. The staff are knowledgeable and smartly dressed, the menus are well thought out and the live music adds a great vibe. Ask for a pin lapel badge of Scarfe! ♥️

    Lush interiors, sophisticated atmosphere, loved it! Cocktails are expensive, no doubt about that, but they are fabulous! If you like sweet cocktails, try 50/50. A surprise!

    Amazing and innovative cocktails in a beautiful setting. The cocktail menu with caricatures by Gerald Scarfe is an attraction in itself.

    Definitely one of the best bars in London. Great music (at least when we visited there was a fantastic band playing well-known songs). Must visit.

    Nothing like finding a great craft cocktail bar. Plenty of great house drinks but don't be afraid to try the old standards.

    Fantastic bar, great service, the barman made us testing a fantastic homemade cocktail. Expensive, but worth it.

    Amazing vibe, live music, perfect ambiance, friendly and fantastic service (shouts to Andrea). Just a really pleasant, social place, what a bar should be.

    Perhaps the best hotel bar in London. Nice cocktails, live jazz music, spacious environment, outstanding decoration. You can’t be left unimpressed. A must-visit.

    Amazing bar. Perfect for a business drink or a late drink after a dinner in the area.

    Great live music, friendly staff, cool drinks and tasty bites. Their sofas are incredibly comfortable and just beg for long conversations.

    Cozy spot for a good drink and open late. They also have live music at the weekends. Not your typical hotel bar.
