Smith and Whistle
Bar in Mayfair
Smith and Whistle is a lovely bar in Mayfair, part of the Sheraton Grand London Park Lane. With plush interiors, private areas to hire and an outdoor terrace, Smith and Whistle is great for an after work tipple.
All cocktails are priced at £10 and they are more than accommodating with going off menu. We started off with a Clover Club: Beefeater Gin, Dolin Rouge, raspberry syrup, lemon, egg white, raspberries. As expected it was light and summery and went down rather well. The Negroni: Old Tom Gin infused with lemon peel, Campari, S&W Sweet Vermouth was strong and the perfect combination of bittersweet, boozy, floral, and bitter orange. The grand ice cube was also stamped with S&W after this lovely bar in Mayfair!
Accompanying these cocktails we had a few nibbles including some amazing Sea salt pork scratchings, curious apple cider dip (£2.95). These were so moreish and the apple cider dip was just perfect. We also munched on some crisps and marinated olives. There are a number of small and large plates to delve into with your cocktails and we are looking forward to trying this on another visit!
Obviously we had to try a few more cocktails during our visit. I decided to go off menu and have one of my favourite classics – a Porn Star Martini. It lived up to its expectations and was not as sweet as some, which I prefer! We also had a much stronger cocktail – William Whistle: Martin Millers Westbourne Gin, Lillet Blanc, grapefruit bitters. If you like your cocktails boozy then definitely opt for this one!
As well as expertly crafted cocktails, Smith and Whistle offers a wide range of draught and bottled beers and wines, including from emerging English wineries. If you visit on a Monday you can get two cocktails for £10 and on Thursday’s from 5pm to 8pm all Martin Millers G&T’s are only £5! We loved the look of Martin Millers Gin, Strawberries, Fresh Ground Black Pepper & Fever-Tree Elderflower Tonic.
