“Scrumptiously different bar”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 May 2014

Located in the Rosewood Hotel on the ground floor this very opulent watering hole is bordering on decadent and what a marvelous place. The seating is great, ambiance tremendous with lots to look at on the walls. Music is playing all the time with a live pianist thrown in for good measure. There is a very good choice of drinks and the champagne is not drop dead too expensive. We sampled the hot bar snacks which were very tasty. The nuts are also some of the best I have tasted in London. Service was very good too. All in all a very good night out and we look forward to going again soon. It is worth going out of one's way to pay a visit.

A fabulous hotel bar which features caricature art depicting famous people. Worth a visit. Great service and extensive drinks list. Lovely Indian food at lunch time.

“Wonderful watering hole!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 April 2014

We dropped in for a drink on a Saturday lunchtime before going on to lunch and the theatre. It's easy to find just off High Holborn. The bar itself is wonderful with a "library" feel and intricate Gerald Scarfe panels on the wall. It is comfortable, elegant and actually quite light as there are large windows. The staff are cheerful, friendly and do not rush you. The "Compendium of Libations" revealed some fabulous cocktails as well as a massive "distillery" section of rums, whiskies, tequilas, etc. With names like "Diplomatic Immunity" and "Thyme Out" these are imaginative and although fairly pricey, they are good value . One friend immediately decided this was her favourite bar, so it may become a regular spot when in town. And the food menu looked very interesting, so maybe next time I can review the food.
