Bourne & Hollingsworth Bar

‘A small and perfectly formed cocktail bar situated in the heart of Fitzrovia’.

Thus Bourne and Hollingsworth is described… by its owner.

But hey: if you don’t back yourself then no-one will.

Bourne and Hollingsworth – a quirky basement cocktail bar in Fitzrovia – combines Impressionist murals, mismatched chairs, and decadent banquette seating to create the unique and unusual sensation of getting lightly sozzled in the National Gallery.

B&H Bar

Speaking of which, the cocktail menu’s eccentric and imaginative, with drinks like the Time for a Cuppa (with Earl Grey-infused gin, ginger wine and gingerbread syrup) and the Campfire Cup (a frothy mug of orange, peach, Spanish liqueur and toasted marshmallows) packing a real punch.

It’s a genuine Fitzrovia gem, and – like its sibling around the corner (Rev JW Simpson) – is definitely worth visiting regularly.

Just like the National Gallery.


NOTE: They’re not kidding about the ‘small’ thing; you can, and absolutely should, reserve a table on their website before going.
