A drinking destination

Just a short stroll from the V&A, is a cocktail bar awaiting your arrival. The Egerton Bar is the ideal destination during a day of culture. But while we have our own Picasso and Renoir lithographs at the hotel, the work of art we’re most proud of is our signature cocktail: The Martini.


As a five-star hotel, we offer guests a completely personalised experience from an impeccably stocked bar. We can make a great martini any way you want – straight, dirty, apple sour, or even chocolate. For a truly unforgettable drink, we strongly recommend our take on the classic. Accompany your cocktail experience with delicious dishes from our bar menu, alongside our signature canapés. For those seeking a more hands-on experience, our Martini Masterclass, accompanied by a selection of our signature canapés, is simply unmissable.

The classic martini

Our signature cocktail at The Egerton, the martini, has come to be one of the most celebrated features of our five-star hotel, earning us the reputation as one of the best martini bars in London.
