Cocktails and The Aristocracy Mix At The William’s Bar & Bistro

Located in Mayfair, the posh and luxurious St. James’s Hotel & Club offers a refreshing retreat from the busy London streets.  Housed within an elegant Victorian town home, the hotel presents five star accommodations and incredible service backed by a long tradition of high standards.  Recognised as a member of the Small Luxury Hotels of the World, St. James’s Hotel & Club enjoys a rich heritage as one of London’s finest hotels. 

One of the greatest features of this award-winning hotel is the classic cocktail lounge, William’s Bar & Bistro, which is overseen by Michelin star winning chef, William Drabble.  Open day and night, William’s Bar & Bistro is the perfect stop any time of day.  At sunrise, the lounge offers a delightful menu of breakfast options, or light lunch at midday.  As the day unwinds, afternoon tea is put away in exchange for pre-theatre dinner and drinks.

Steeped in 1920’s décor, William’s Bar & Bistro provides a stylish space to relax and cherish moments with dear friends.  Guests are invited to rest upon plush gold and black velvet seating and admire some of the bar’s collection of artwork.  The centrepiece of William’s Bar & Bistro is the stunning bar with gold accents.  Behind the bar, William’s boasts an extraordinary collection of cognacs and top shelf liquors.

With a rich tradition of class and charm worthy of the English aristocracy, it is only fitting that the St. James’s Hotel & Club is home to one of London’s finest cocktail lounges.  William’s Bar & Bistro provides the ideal space to enjoy premium cocktails and cognacs, including the bar’s signature drink, the sweet and charming Posh Nosh.  Chef William Drabble’s skill is further on display at the hotel restaurant, Seven Park Place.  Guests are encouraged to try the poached native lobster tail with savoury lobster butter and cauliflower puree, the Seven Park Place’s signature dish.
