Discreet, luxurious and private
Where is it?
The classic Edwardian townhouse, which once played host to Jimi Hendrix and the Rolling Stones, stands opposite the Natural History Museum, a short walk from South Kensington tube station. There's no external signage, so you'll need to remember the exact street address.
What's it like?
The cosy Firehouse bar has a trendy seating area and a decked terrace for the summer, and Chloe is in the basement with dark walls, black leather sofas and luminous blue lighting. The clientele are urbane sophisticates, here for anything from a relaxing drink, a full-blown meal in the upstairs restaurant or a drink-fuelled dance in the club. The bar can be a little slow, but the cocktails served make up for it with the SW7 cocktail a particular highlight - it has tanqueray, mint, lime, sugar and soda. Yum!
Why does Johnny Ikon love it?
The crowd is glam, and I like that you can go through the whole night in one venue, moving from one floor to the next. Great cocktails!
