American Bar

Top choice cocktail bar in The West End

Home of the Hanky Panky, White Lady and other classic infusions created on-site, the seriously dishy and elegant American Bar is an icon of London, with soft blue and rust art deco lines and live piano music. Cocktails start at £17.50 and peak at a stupefying £5000 (the Original Sazerac, containing Sazerac de Forge cognac from 1857).

Fabulous celebrity photos and memorabilia adorn the walls.
