Mayfair’s Cocktail Metropolitan at the Met Bar

Recognized as one of the most stylish hotels in all of central London, the Metropolitan by COMO is an extraordinary hotel experience, designed to satisfy even the most discerning of tastes.  One of the first hotel’s to embrace contemporary design, the Metropolitan by COMO is a clear leader among Mayfair’s hospitality industry, from its extraordinary suites, to its impeccable service, down to the stylish and unique Met Bar. 

Upon entering the Met Bar, visitors are greeted by a unique black lava stone bar.  Skirted in warm leather, the bar weaves its way through the space, revealing plenty of cosy spaces to relax and savour one of the Met Bar’s delightful drink offerings.  Natural wood accents the walls and plays off of the crisp gold and glass seating throughout the space.  During the daylight, natural light pours through an etched glass wall, while at night this wall provides a skewed and voyeuristic view of the party inside.

Behind the black bar rests a team of skilled mixologists, who work painstakingly to thrill and surprise each guest.  Visitors are welcome to register for a Cocktail Masterclass, designed to share some of Met Bar’s best recipes.  Afterwards you can pair your favourite cocktail with a delicious sampling of appetizers from the kitchen.

Located where Park Lane meets Hyde Park Corner, the Metropolitan by COMO rests at one of the most desirable locations in London.  The Met Bar presents a delicious homage to the surrounding neighbourhood with the specialty Park Lane Cocktail.  The concoction begins by muddling two cardamom pods with a spoonful of Damson jam.  Add in fresh lime juice, apple juice, and Williams Gin.  Served in a chilled glass, this drink is sure to satisfy the sweet tooth.
