The Library Bar

The Library Bar

One of the Capital's most celebrated cocktail destinations, The Library Bar – distinguished by its outstanding mixology and venerable "liquid museum" of spirits – offers the warm and intimate atmosphere of a private club accompanied by a vibrant ambiance that makes it a popular choice with Knightsbridge and Belgravia's well-heeled locals as well as hotel guests. The bar is home to cognacs dating back to the 1770s, as well as spectacularly prepared cocktails by a team of award-winning experts including Bar Manager Mickael Perron and Head Bartender Sofiane Barthélémy.

"The atmosphere is a cool mix of classic and contemporary, the perfect setting for the most British of cocktails...." Condé Nast Traveller

"A Classic. Perhaps the classic…One great bar." Tatler
