I can vouch for this place as I have been there many times and have fond memories of this place from my college days. This place is chic, a little expensive and very centrally located at the Trafalgar Square. Do try the cocktails and lobster/prawns

We visited this bar on a Saturday evening. Great music, good atmosphere, and great service. It gets busy, so pre-booking is advisable. We were there for drinks only, so I cannot comment on the food. Well worth a visit.More

Popped in for some lunch early November 2017. Had been prior to the refit. Still the same high service. Great views across London. Snacks and drinks very nice. Tried a few cocktails and was not disappointed. Recommended.

Me and the wife visited for lunch (meat and cheese platter) and cocktails on a promotion deal. Great for a special occasion as the cocktails start at £15.00. Only stayed for 2 drinks because of the price but really enjoyed our stay with amazing views...More

St. James's
Perennially fashionable since the days of Henry VIII,
the aristocratic “Clubland” of St James's is a premier
destination for high end craft and bespoke design.
Here you’ll lose count of the Royal Warrants (which
indicate that the Royal Family patronizes the
establishment) seen in shop front windows, even during
a short stroll to bordering Green Park or St James’s
Park. With the brightly lit and constantly buzzing
