Fancied a posh place for some wine one night and decided to try this place. Despite my scruffy jeans, they let us in! Warm welcome from the bar manager, he took our coats, barman knew his wine and kept us going with olives and nuts at the bar and made is feel at home. 65 quid for a bottle of... More

Quite extensive drinks menu, non alcoholic also. I chose a delicious sweet wine, to finish afternoon tea, to the wonderful sounds of the piano. Just wonderful.

You can feel the history and really imagine all the famous and important people that have graced their presence. There certainly are characters that visit from all over... More

We ordered cocktails and were impressed with the quality of the accompanying snacks. The cocktails themselves were delicious, but the glasses/vessels were gimmicky and did not fit in with the elegance and style we would have expected from the Dorchester.

We popped into this bar whilst up London for the evening. We were walking along Park Lane and we liked the look of the bar so we decided to go in and see what it was like. As you would expect it is very expensive but if you know that and are willing to treat yourself then this is a... More

I was recently at The Bar at The Dorchester meeting an old business partner from Dubai who was over on a business trip. I have to say that I have travelled all over the World and sampled some fantastic cocktail bars, but none have managed to truly shock my pallet with something as amazing as the Vesper Martini at The...

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.

Staying in Mayfair

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.
