Description: At some 80-feet in length, Sanderson's dramatic, glowing onyx Long Bar is the focal point for energy at Sanderson. The beauty of Long Bar in London is that non-resident visitors are always welcome, which proves to be rare for such a glamorous and well-known hotel bar. Long Bar is light, white and airy and radiates freshness and cleanliness. Classic and innovative cocktails fill the seasonally changing menu, with guests also being able to enjoy a wide selection of small and bigger plates to share as well as burgers, sandwiches and salads. Either sit around the bar people-watching or relax in the sanctuary of the Courtyard sipping champagne. Reservations can be made for the Courtyard and Long Bar offers regular DJ nights - with resident DJ's playing in the garden during the summer months.

“Poor Service”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2013

I went to the Long Bar for drinks last night and have to say the service at the bar is probably the worst I have experienced and certainly not what I would expect from such a nice hotel. We waited 40 mins at the bar to be served without any acknowledgement from the bar staff......we left in the end and actually saw a number of people doing the same. I won't be going back.

“Contemporary bar and great cocktails (odd smell though)”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2013

I felt the bar was a little tatty plus horrid smell in middle near dishwasher. Overall it's a big long bar with some amazing cocktails though so does the job as well as anyone else,

Never been at night so cannot comment apparat 5pm

“Great Night!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2013

My boyfriend and I met a few friends here last night- had a great night! The atmosphere was buzzing- the same vibe of trendy hotel bars in south beach Miami..very nostalgic! Apart from the token high class hookers, the crowd was a great mix of people of varying ages and social circles. Definitely far less pretentious than I had expected it to be. The bartenders were very attentive and the cocktails were an incredible concoction of ingredients that were absolutely delish!! This bar is now one of my favourites in London, glad we discovered it last night and I will definitely be returning in the near future!

“Great food and ambience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2013

Service was pretty quick for a busy Thursday evening. We ordered a couple of bottles of wine and some platters at the bar. The ribs were great! Would visit again
