The bar at the Chesterfield Mayfair is an intentional contradiction. While the doorman outside the canopied entrance suggests reassuring tradition, the lounge inside offers something far more surprising.
The Molecular Cocktail Experience is certainly not what you'd expect to find in a luxury Mayfair hotel. And it’s this shock of the new that hints at what comes next. Take a seat at the bar and our resident mixologist will talk you through a menu of drinks that have taken months of experimentation in the lab to perfect.
* Our pianist plays every evening from 6.30pm Monday to Saturday
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.
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.
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!
