Description: 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.

Myself and my husband currently live in London so we haven't actually stayed in this hotel. However, if we ever moved and then visited London, we would most definitely stay here. Four of us went into the Dorchester for a Christmas drink on the way to Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park. As soon as you walk in it takes your... More

Very nice bar with exquisite service. Fairly small but done extremely well, ambiance is high-end. Pretty good beer and wine selections. Be prepared to drop some cheddar.

The quality is excellent! I love this place. Everything is just perfect in every detail. You won't be disappointed. The only thing I could complain about is the VAT not included in the price they show. So when you pay you see your bill 20% more than you expect. Anyway if you're going there you don't have any financial problem.... More

We know its not on the list of cocktails in the bar but we asked for Brandy Alexanders - and there was a smile on the face of the bartender. We watched them being "assembled" and when they arrived at our table we sat and looked at them for a second before tasting the BEST we have ever had!

They have great cocktails and are open to make you a special drink if it's not on the menu. The seating is very comfortable and I recommend it to all those who would like to have a pre-dinner drink before going out.
