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.

                    Fantastic place to meet in central London. Elegant and quiet with a fabulous array of cocktails and attentive service. There was a large party there so the service and the noise level are normally 5 stars but I rated it a bit lower this time for that reason 🌟

                    From the moment you walk in the front door of the hotel you are greeted by a friendly person who is incredibly welcoming and shows you where to go to the bar. Then when you get there it is a wonderful setting with luxurious furniture and decor with ambient lighting and atmosphere. Very much like a 1930s-40s vibe. You are greeted by equally welcoming and friendly people. They don’t speak down to you or are pretentious at all. They offered friendly and genuine conversation. The quality of the cocktails is first class along with the venue and service. Would definitely recommend.

                    Generally a wonderful place to meet, talk, try out an exotic range of drinks and eat from a small range of food. We went Tuesday evening and found that it was possible to park without charge in the street outside. We had burgers, which were excellent. The service was excellent with pleasantly attentive staff. We'll be going again!

                    A very cosy welcoming place to go if you’re seeking a classy but chilled place to hangout. Good service selection wines but they could do with more choice of allergen free options.

                    Myself and 4 friends went here for the first time on Saturday night. We were greeted by one of the friendliest bar manager I have come across in London. I wasn’t happy with where we were seated as it was a small table for just 5 of us and he went out of his way to accommodate us but unfortunately wasn’t able to due to other bookings. However, when we were leaving he asked again how our drinks were and apologised again for not being able to seat us at a better table! This level of service is what really gives the bar 5 stars!! The drinks were very well presented and the whiskey sours were great. I would highly recommend going here!

                    One of the best experiences I had in London so far. The bar manager is a star he was very funny and very focus on people and service.

                    We just popped in for a drink in the Manetta's Bar. WOW! The Art Deco décor is lovely, and the cocktails were absolutely amazing. My husband had a new fashioned, The bar manager treated us like we were VIP's, taking our coats and replenishing our bar snacks so frequently we never got to the bottom of the bowls. We really enjoyed our staying, the Bar manager even gave us the recipes for the cocktails we have which were absolutely amazing!

                    Manetta's is the bar!!! The service is impeccable - the bartenders are happy to answer any and all questions while making drinks and genuinely enjoy talking to guests. Pascal in particular was incredible. The cocktails are wonderful - from the classics like Martinis to the signatures. Anyone who loves cocktails should go here at least once.
