“Expensive but worth it”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 July 2014

Connaught Bar is my fave bar in London, and I visit it with my hubby every time we are in London. The drinks are expensive but you really do get what you pay for. The service is also exceptional, with the staff offering service readily with a smile and explainingthe bar's complex drinks if necessary. What I really love is the little recipe card of the drinks you ordered which is presented with the bill.Given how complex the cocktails are, I don't think I will ever make any of them but it's great to have a wee souvenir of your visit.

“Best elegant cocktail bar--wow!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2014

Went with 5 business colleagues (3 women, 3 men) and got tables with soft seating right next to the main bar. Elegant waitresses, uniformed, do everything right. We had no idea that if you order the connaught martini they bring over a bar and bartender who give you a choice of bitters, and of course twist and olives, and stirs super professionally. This is ceremony. You pay for it, and in my opinion, it is worth it! All of the drinks were terrific, made with care. Recipes provided. Your coat check token is given in an envelope. A tuxedo'd bathroom attendant. We were escorted to the bar since we hadnt been there. The staff could not help enough. Just, wow.

“Connaught Bar - Lovely Venue”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 May 2014

We recall the old Connaught Bar, back when Menu was the restaurant in the lobby area. After the refurbishment, we were worried that too many things would change - what did change might have been for the better. There are few bars with more charm, than the Connaught Bar. The selections are great, and so is the service.

As we are usually at the Hilton Park Lane, we split our bar-hopping between the Connaught and Galvins Windows Bar in the Hilton (with a few forays to The Dourchester's bar).

“Best Hotel Bar in London”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 April 2014

This is an ultra chic bar in the heart of Mayfair. Worth a visit. Special Martini trolley where the mixologist makes the martini infront of you. Great atmosphere and friendly service. Number one in my top five London bars.
