May Fair Bar has partnered with the House of Suntory’s Roku Gin to celebrate Japan’s iconic cherry blossom season and centuries-old practice of Hanami; the traditional Japanese custom of enjoying the transient beauty of flowers. Experience our transformed interiors with blooming, blush-hued cherry blossom, alongside bespoke cocktails and a selection of exquisite contemporary pan-Asian small plates.

Earlier on in the day, May Fair Bar is a relaxing and calm place for a morning meeting or brunch with friends.

Set in London’s exclusive Mayfair, May Fair Bar is a true mirror of its surroundings. Like the neighbourhood’s streets and mews, it breathes sophisticated vibrancy and embodies the spirit of nearby independent shops, luxury boutiques and art institutions.

I assume he did not want to let us in due to the racial preferences of the establishment. Drinks were average at best and therefore, overpriced.

She told me originally without my email confirmation I couldn’t come in. I didn’t have this with me as it was my work email. I eventually found my own name on the booking system. We did arrive 50 minutes early (this was probably my error) however then just been told come back at the time only in a very cold manner. I have stayed abs ate at the hotel serval times. I won’t again now as I found this embarrassing to be treated like this in front of friends when I had booked the bar telling them how lovely it was.

Attentive staff (and went the extra mile when I asked for a safety pin for my top!) really liked the decoration in the bar, just got a bit cold with the air con towards the end of our evening. Would definitely go back.

Management walking around chatting to each other and looks like they are more interested in themselves than the guests. Breakfast menu is too chef like and complicated than easy and quick.

It was a brilliant afternoon and I'm glad I got to go there.

The requests I had made where ignored and when I queried this with the manager he could have not been less interested, He eventually said that he would do something to compensate but would not say what, we stayed over an hour after this but he did nothing. I did not want to complain further on the night and ruin the celebrations but we were all very disappointed at the way we were made to feel. I don'y mind paying more to get more but that is not the case at the Mayfair. Would not go back here again.
