Gin and Jazz

Swing-lovers, gin aficionados and hotel guests should all make merry as they find The Chesterfield Mayfair's Terrace Bar transformed into an intimate jazz setting
(with daily performances).

Capturing the elegance of the Art Deco era, the bar will tinkle to the sound of countless gin cocktails
(especially curated to include some “smoky” numbers),
as well as the ivories of John the pianist and his sultry four-piece band.

Molecular Cocktails

The most important ingredient in an unforgettable cocktail is the element of surprise. It’s about intriguing combinations that give familiar favourites a new twist. And it's that same unexpected revelation that greets you when you step into a Red Carnation hotel. Because while the buildings are steeped in tradition, the drinks we serve at our Molecular Cocktail Experience are unlike anything you will have tasted before.

From a Tipsy Tea that blends gin with jasmine, to an Old and New Era Amaretto Sour encased in a bubble, these are drinks that make you rethink what a heritage hotel can offer. 

Gin and Tonic Experience 

When you order a gin and tonic it is normally served in a highball glass and the only choice you make is whether to have ice and a slice of lemon - this defeats the whole purpose of the distiller!

Our resident mixologists will guide you through an innovative and exciting gin and tonic tour.  We have created four sensational menu tastings where you will have the opportunity to sample selected gins ranging from citrus to floral accompanied by your choice of tonic water pairings and garnishes.

Bookings 48 hours in advance are recommended to avoid disappointment. Duration: 45 minutes. 8 people maximum. Available daily after11:00am
(Excluding Wednesday evenings after 6:00pm).

Whisky Nosing and Tasting
