Artesian in Portland Place is a luxurious cocktail bar renowned for its magnificent rum creations, international wine list and creatively prepared, innovative cocktails which guarantee a truly unforgettable multi-sensory experience.
Winner of numerous accolades including the coveted ‘World’s Best Bar’ awarded by Drinks International magazine for four consecutive years, this glamorous lounge has a relaxed vibe attracting a sashay of A-listers, dressed in smart casuals with a last minute designer twist. This chic watering hole is the perfect choice if you are looking for high quality drinks and gourmet bar fare.
Begin your evening with an Artesian classic such as Morning Glory Fizz (Johnny Walker Black is the key ingredient) or Vieux Carre, which comes with a healthy dose of Rémy Martin VSOP.
Aptly titled ‘Surrealism’ and inspired by a lavishly illustrated vintage cookbook by prominent Surrealist painter Salvador Dali, Artisean’s innovative new menu offers its sophisticated patrons a wide choice of bespoke cocktails, beautifully presented in Surrealism vessels.
Concocted from a richly layered 15 year Glenfiddich, ‘Your Room or Mine’ will simply whet your appetite for another dram, as will ‘Bedroom Myth’, a memorable combination of Hendrick’s gin and Aquavit (a Norwegian flavoured spirit).
Vodka aficionados will love ‘You’re so Gangsta’ prepared with Grey Goose and ‘Join the Colony’ created with Absolut Elyx (a luxury handcrafted vodka) and served in a unique ant-shaped structure.
If you’re after something a little easier to pronounce or remember, try a refreshing glass of wine, Laurent-Perrier champagne or order a bottle of Cognac. If you are looking for beer, try Peroni Nastro Azzurro, a refreshing dry Italian lager or sample the Meantime Pilsner, a classic locally brewed beer from the Meantime Brewery.
