Spectacular sunsets, signature cocktails, unique experiences and some of the best views in Cape Town.
Located beneath London's largest Living Wall, recently replanted with more than 6,000 herbaceous plants to breathe life into our surroundings, bbar is a vibrant cocktail bar and restaurant in the heart of Victoria.
Our new menu plays homage to our heritage, with dishes that beautifully reflect the flavours of South Africa with a playful twist, from Boerewors Eggs Benedict with chilli chutney biltong to The Gatsby Sub, a Western Cape pulled BBQ short rib of beef.
Alongside this exceptional new menu, we have live mix sessions and DJ sets throughout the week, as well as contemporary signature cocktails created by our resident mixologists.
No. 17 and No. 19 Egerton Terrace now stand on what was part of an 84-acre parcel of land left in trust in 1627 by Henry Smith, Alderman of the City of London, ‘for the relief and ransom of poor captives being slaves under Turkish pirates’.
Expect warm smiles at every turn, a host of thoughtful touches, sumptuous rooms and suites, and delicious cuisine, all set in the heart of prestigious Knightsbridge.
Every one of our team members is empowered to make a real difference, offering remarkably considerate service and discrete attention to detail. From freshly-cut flowers in the suites to personalised gifts for special occasions, it is no surprise that guests often remember the names of our staff and ask after them when they return.
Exceeding expectations at every turn, our historic hotel has a team who take genuine pride in delivering impeccable service. Within walking distance of the V&A and Harrods, enjoy some of the best shopping and culture before returning to the private town house experience of the hotel for London's best Martini in The Bar or the joyful tradition of Afternoon Tea in The Drawing Room.
We are proud of our long-standing relationships with the world-class attractions in our neighbourhood, including the V&A Museum, one of the most important art and design collections in the world. Our close links allow us to create carefully designed experiences for guests, including themed Afternoon Teas, behind-the-scenes tours and exclusive access to sold out shows.

"Located in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, we offer a boutique retreat in an atmosphere of Victorian elegance, overlooking verdant, private residential gardens.
A short walk from the hotel are world-renowned attractions such as the Victoria & Albert Museum, Natural History Museum, Science Museum and the Royal Albert Hall, alongside Kensington Palace and Gardens in Hyde Park. Also on our doorstep are the famous department stores Harrods and Harvey Nichols and the many high-end fashion boutiques of Knightsbridge.
We are proud of our award-winning traditional Afternoon Tea and our beautiful Bar, which offers London’s most famous martinis. Our neighborhood, which is a leading art and design district, is echoed throughout the hotel in the original works of art by artists such as Toulouse-Lautrec, Erte, Ludwig Bemelmans, ‘Peanuts’ cartoon creator Charles M. Schulz, British cartoonist JAK and French caricaturist Sem.
We are wholly committed to sustainability: we use locally sourced produce for our menus, conduct food waste management procedures, have eliminated single-use plastics, and operate entirely without paper.
I have been General Manager of this beautiful townhouse hotel, which was recently recognised with a Forbes Five-Star rating, since 2012 and genuinely consider each member of my team to be part of my Egerton family. My team are chosen for their instinctual desire to care for our guests, including our adored canine visitors. We are here to welcome guests to experience the hotel and all the wonderful places that surround us."
