Description: As some 80-feet in length, Sanderson’s dramatic, glowing onyx Long Bar is the focal point for energy at Sanderson. The Long Bar has been remodelled with nature in mind, to become The Bar of Nature, dripping with climbing vines and hanging plants. Leading cocktail maestro, Stuart Bale, who has experience working across several of the capital’s most highly acclaimed bars, has devised a delectable new drinks menu. The concept for the drinks, ‘Not as Nature Intended’, is an exploration of the beauty of nature and how we can play with it and alter it to suit our needs. Guests can also enjoy a wide selection of small plates and bigger bites from the light, white and airy surroundings. Either sit around the bar people-watching or relax in the sanctuary of the Courtyard Garden sipping Champagne. The bar is brought to life throughout the week with DJ’s and events. Kick the week of in style with Aperitivo Tuesday, where you can transport yourself to the Amalfi Coast with our Italian inspired cocktails accompanied by Mediterranean nibbles. Heading into mid-week with funky house and nu disco DJ residencies Thursday, Friday and Saturday lasting until the early hours.

“Nice place for drinks”
Reviewed March 27, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

We went to the Long Bar for drinks and sat in the outside courtyard. It's a great place to go for drinks with friends or a date, although very pricey we only stayed for two drinks. Didn't feel over pretentious, and staff were friendly.

“It just has a certain something”
Reviewed February 23, 2014

The Long Bar is expensive, frequented by pretentious trendies and it is often difficult to get a stool (which is pretty much essential) BUT I love the place. It just has a certain something that makes me enjoy visiting. Smiley barmaid last night made a really good martini without having to have each step explained and served it with a hearty thank you. Left with a smile on my face and looking forward to next visit.

“Service in the bar , shocking!”
Reviewed December 19, 2013

Had to wait 20 minutes to be served in the. One of the barmen actually told us he couldn't serve us, as he was serving the restaurant orders. Won't go back. Food very average, restaurant very empty.
