Stunning cocktails have the power to turn an average evening into one that we will never forget. The ingredients are key and so too are the surroundings. But it isn’t all about the boozy spirits off the top shelf. There are many ‘virgin’ versions of the classics that still add a layer of sophistication and help get us in the mood for a top night out in Mayfair.
Exploring Bond Street Cocktail Bars
Of all of the top cocktail bars in the Mayfair area, there are a few that stand out head and shoulders above the rest. The attention to detail, unrivalled service, luxurious surroundings and, of course, the finest ingredients make the following cocktail bars near Bond Street a must to experience.
