“Couldn't be anything other than excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

Visited this establishment during the Christmas period for drinks and snacks in the public bar area. The building itself from the outside is very Art-deco and looks wonderful, a stark contrast in design and look to its parent hotel The Dorchester which is opposite. Door staff very friendly and helpful. As you would expect from a hotel of this caliber it is very well finished in all areas, un-cluttered and you get a real feeling of class.

The bar area upstairs, which is long and narrow, benefits from great mood lighting, very comfortable bar stools and an amazing array of drinks. The cocktails are superb, with excellent attention to detail, food was first class. This is not a cheap place to visit and a place to go as a treat, especially if you are not a city banker ! Bar and waiting staff are first class, try the Kobe Beef sliders !!

“Bar 45 is a great find!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

Went to see the final Euro final at the Bar 45 and our group of 5 was not disappointed!

The atmosphere is chic while not too formal, which is exactly what we were looking for that day. The bar food is of high standard - the sliders, tuna tartar and crab/lobster rolls were particularly good. Excellent selection of cocktails but not so much of beers.

The staff was very accommodating and attentive so no complaints in that area... and we tend to be particularly demanding too!

I highly recommend it but make sure you book.

“One of London's better hotel bars”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2012

We are regulars of the Coburg Bar at the Connaught Hotel, but recently we've grown tired of how busy it is and having to wait for a table. As an alternative, we tried the bar at 45 Park Lane on Saturday. We had a great time, primarily because of the exceptional customer service we received. The staff were attentive, smiling and efficient and the drinks were well made - there was nothing slap dash about it. I'm glad to see that one hotel bar in London has it right. We'll definitely be back. Many times.
