Dear Guest,

It is with a heavy heart that we have to close Artesian Bar doors following the recent government announcement that London has moved to Tier 3.

Please rest assured that we will reopen as soon as possible and will be delighted to welcome you back when that day comes.

In the meantime we wish you a very Merry Christmas and a more prosperous New Year.

Kind Regards,
Artesian Bar

    Lovely cocktails and great bar. Well worth the visit although the theatre of the cocktails in previous visits was much more entertaining Snacks on previous visits were much better but the crackers brought round were nice but maybe expected a little more considering the price of the drinks.

    receptionist couldn't find booking - when it was found it wasn't updated to reflect the changes I made via opentable. arrived a few mins early as was told the restaurant was not open and was not allowed in it was open at 11:00. Worth nothing that on open table it was giving me an option to book a table for 10:45 at the time of booking

    A little dismayed over the prices. To my astonishment, one 50ml serving of a premium Grey Goose was £31; cocktails £20 each; and bottled water £6.95.... The interior looked tired, and resembled a fancy pub. Most of the guests looked like transient tourists, brining in their shopping bags and keeping their coats on.

    Super disappointed with the cocktails. The bar itself is lovely, staff were super attentive, but the drinks themselves were pretty ordinary and not even very tasty. We had 5 different cocktails between the 3 of us and there wasn't one I would order again. Presentationally they were hit and miss too, and let's be honest, when you are paying £20 for a drink you expect a bit of theatre. One basically looked like a glass of water with an ice cube in. Definitely won't be rushing back here. Bar snacks were great though!

    I really enjoyed the bar area and pleasant lunchtime vibe. Service was excellent and the one glass of Perrier Jouet was sublime. The biggest failing was the over priced and extremely dull quinoa greens salad. Appalling value at £20. Maybe the other bar good is better ‘value’, however I would not recommend the salad. Very disappointing.

    I searched for the best bars in London and this one pops up. I was attracted by the interior and diverted cocktail menu. The staff are all friendly and the cocktail menu at this moment is minimalism which I love. Will definitely come back again for the next menu design.

    We had a lovely lunch served by attentive and courteous staff. Food was excellent and cocktails were nice but not exciting. Perhaps I'm too 'del boy' wanting fireworks and paper umbrellas! Used to love the bar's innovative cocktail presentation.

    Went for cocktails before Afternoon Tea, I have mixed views of the place. On the one hand I loved the quality of the drinks and the purity of the presentation. On the other I missed the flamboyance of normal cocktails. I would recommend but would but would let people know not to expect a "normal" cocktail experience. Also, I think the bar misses a trick and has gone a bit too minimalist, no real menu to explain the cocktails or the process etc. Hides how much work has gone into them

    Booked for a special occasion whilst visiting London. Initial booking was cancelled for no apparent reason. Contacting them by phone the booking was remade but no confirmation sent so had to contact them again. On arrival at the hotel there was no real welcome. Staff however in the bar area were very pleasant and helpful. The actual bar area is very cramped. It's not somewhere to go for a quiet time or for anything romantic. They have squeezed in as many tables and chairs as they can so when full it's very noisy. We were only there for drinks so only had the nibbles - salt and pepper cracker types and caremelised peanuts. They did ask about allergies and they did give us more when we asked. Drinks wise the cocktail list looks amazing. Lots of unusual combinations and great names evoking memories. But the tastes and presentation didn't wow as we were expecting which was really disappointing. Cost wise each cocktail was £18 or £19. We would have been happy to pay these prices but felt overall they were expensive. I have had a far better experience in other places and wouldn't recommend unless there were no other choices!

    My booking was for 2 people at 4:45pm - I arrived at 4:58 to be told there was no booking in my name. I was then told it had been cancelled because of a 15min no show policy - fair enough but it was not 15 minutes. By the time I’d discussed the situation my phone ultimately showed 5pm. They did find me another table but I did feel as though I’d been chastised & it was not 15 minutes

    Sadly very disappointed on this visit (we have been before). Booked, but got their a little early and were shown to table in the corner. So we asked to move. I chose a cocktail from the special menu and was advised by the waiter it was not what you would call a long drink, but could almost be classed as food so this was not a good choice for me as I was thirsty. All the other choices had ingredients I did not like so I asked if they had a more normal/generic menu. Waiter told me that if I knew what I wanted they could make one up for me but no they did not have any normal kind of cocktail menu despite being a famous cocktail bar. So I just ordered a simple gin and tonic. Now you would have thought with Gin being one of THE most popular spirits at the moment, I would have been asked what kind of gin I would like - again it was a no. Whilst waiting for our drinks we were approached to query our reservation which the establishment could not find on their system, so I had to prove it by showing an emailed booking confirmation on my phone. Special early evening cocktails with my daughter before going to the theatre after a Christmas girly day out together spoiled.
