The delights of cocktail hour have returned to London with The Bar at The Dorchester. Established as one of the places in the capital to see and be seen, The Bar at The Dorchester is renowned as much for its rich, opulent interior as for its menu of new and classic cocktails devised by world-renowned expert alchemist Giuliano Morandin and his team whose awards are too many to list. A rich palette of black, browns and aubergine combine with luxurious lacquered mahogany, mirrored glass, velvet and dramatic, red, glass spears to create the perfect nightime atmosphere. A long, sexy, curved bar boasts one of the finest selections of spirits, champagnes and wines in London and a menu to match.

My partner and I came here before meeting friends at Winter Wonderland at Christmas to escape the cold. We had hot drinks, my partner coffee and myself tea. Service was prompt and efficient. The bar itself feels like old luxurious Hollywood glamour, small but comfortable, we could have sat there for hours!

Ok, place to have a drink price's are very expensive and the bar it self is nothing special. There is a lot of nicer places in London for half the price with a better overall experience.

I went there with a friend of mine for a cocktail. The bar is a classic American bar, the way it should be. A young Italian bartender prepared a perfect Martini for me and his special for my friend, we were impressed. It was a quiet night but we had a great time thanks to Giuliano, the manager who is...

Stopped here for a couple of drinks before our dinner reservation, the staff are all very friendly and there is a great selection of drinks, the wine and the Dorchester Martini was a hit with me and my partner! Quite pricey but its part of the experience of coming to the Dorchester.

Fantastic experience. The staff were very accommodating and were particularly good with my 6 month old daughter. They couldn't do enough to help us. The facilities for mothers and babies were excellent. It is clear that a lot of thought had gone into accommodating children. The high chair was very comfortable and we were even offered a range of products... More

Neighborhood 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.
