7-8 Park Place, London, SW1A 1LS (Map)
Hotel bars are the places to be right now and Williams Bar and bistro at the St. James’s Hotel enjoys the perfect location just off St. James’s Street, near Mayfair. Tucked away in a Victorian townhouse, it is close to Green Park underground station and the exclusive shops and restaurants of Jermyn Street. Within this elegant setting you’ll find William Bar and Bistro providing a home from home for guests and anyone seeking a respite from the hurly burly. With comfortable seating and an unhurried, sophisticated atmosphere it’s the ideal place to relax, sip on a cocktail or two and, when hunger strikes, tuck into a bistro menu of classic dishes created by the hotel’s Executive Chef William Drabble. Gin cocktails are the thing here with a great choice made from Beefeater, Hendrick’s, Martin Miller’s and Plymouth. And the St James also runs cocktail making classes bookable by contacting the hotel.
