Plush velvet, supple black upholstery and polished rose gold set the scene for some seriously stylish sips in an ambience redolent of the glamorous 1930's. It was during this time that Manetta's was the favourite hangout for the cognoscenti from the worlds of literature and the arts who mingled with celebrated rakes and aristos. The clientele may have changed a little over time but the atmosphere still lives on, making Manetta’s one of the best cocktail bars in Mayfair.

    Such a lovely, relaxed, upmarket hotel bar. Drinks were all fantastic with a very large selection and the staff couldn’t do enough for you.

    What a fabulous discovery. Where every other bar is a scrum, here I could reserve a table. Service was friendly and unobtrusive. I will definitely be back next time I need a Negroni at 4 in the afternoon!

    We've been to the bar many times before and the experience never disappoints. This time along with our drinks we had the smoked haddock and the steak ciabatta dishes, both being excellent, the latter being enough for two to share. The service was attentive and helpful with regard to the choice of drinks. We went in the evening and, with restrictions ended, had no difficulty parking nearby.

    We booked Manetta’s bar for pre dinner drinks as we were going on to a restaurant nearby. I fell in love with this bar, everything I wanted great service, amazing cocktails, mood lighting and quiet ambience this place had it all in spades with an old charm. We all wanted to chat and didn’t have to shout at each other to be heard. The seating was relaxed like someone’s front room only grander. The waiting staff were efficient and friendly and when we asked them to make up a gin cocktail they were only too happy to oblige. Next time I would like to dine here. I’ve asked my partner for my Birthday to book us a room in the hotel which the bar is attached to. One thing book your table before as its not a big place and seating is limited. Intimate cosy just what we wanted to start our evening. Thank you very much Manettas bar ❤️

    Wonderful service! My friend and I went for a catch up on a Monday night, and had such lovely service from our bartenders. We even tried their own inspired cocktail 'the lost generation'... it was delicious! Our steak sandwich was also really tasty and very good quantity. Quite pricey at £30 for a sandwich and £20 per cocktail... But even the higher than usual prices did not spoil a lovely evening! Very stylish bar with lovely ambience!

    I've been to the bar many times before and it never disappoints. Two of us went in the evening and had a variety of drinks. I had the burger - very good - and my companion had the mussels - also very good and a surprisingly large portion. The staff were very attentive and made us very welcome. Note that in the evening there are no parking restrictions after 6.30 pm and no congestion charge. A hugely enjoyable evening, we'll be back again in due course.

    Wonderful relaxing atmosphere with interesting cocktails and excellent food. We've been before but stopped going when the food was no longer available. The food is back again with a much larger choice than before. We had the excellent burger and will be back again to try some of the other items. We went by car in the evening and could park right outside without charge and, of course, no congestion charge.

    Charming bar - a bit quiet for a Friday night, and lacked music which would have added to the ambiance. Service was a bit off at times - not necessarily attentive and took some time to get our check. But servers were all friendly and drinks always arrived promptly.

    We waited a super long time for our cocktails and they were expensive and actually not worth the wait. They were some of the worst cocktails we have ever had. It’s a real shame as the bar has such potential. We won’t be returning. We went down the road to coya where we paid similar prices and the cocktails were 100% better.
