The Bar at Simpson's
Located on the first floor of the landmark London restaurant, the bar at Simpson’s in the Strand is an elegant setting, resplendent with sparkling mirrors, inviting sofas and a chequerboard bar with a carved Knight playing piece that nods to the original incarnation of Simpson’s as the home of British chess.
The bar at Simpson’s in the Strand is a haven for gin-lovers with a menu that features over forty artisanal gins. Many of the cocktails feature gin that has been created exclusively for Simpson’s in the Strand; London Dry gin distilled by Portobello Road and Old Tom gin distilled by Blackdown Distillery in West Sussex.
The menu explores cocktails designed for different moments in the day. The cocktails range from short and invigorating ‘Sharpeners’, designed to enliven the early evening, to ‘One for the road’ tipples to be enjoyed after a meal in the Grand Divan. Favouring parity over ostentation, the succinct cocktail list foregrounds recognisable classics and simple design championing Simpson’s in the Strand’s commitment to timelessness. Effortlessly mixing the finest spirits, fruits, tonics and bitters, the bartenders create understated yet unforgettable serves and a welcoming bar atmosphere.
