Do Not Disturb | Mansion House Speakeasy
Do Not Disturb.
It’s certainly a brave sign to hang above a brand new bar.
But then, this place isn’t particularly out to grab attention – given that it’s a secret, subterranean, velvet-swathed drinking den dressed up like a speakeasy from 1920s Manhattan.
It’s coming to London as part of a neat package that also includes a slick new hotel, roof terrace and Mediterranean eatery, called the Vintry & Mercer.
Tucked downstairs, it’ll be low-key, low-lit and high-falutin’ in all the right ways, with leather banquettes, velvet stools propping up the bar, and moodily-hued walls lined with vintage pictures of Follies chorus girls. There’ll be plenty of hooch, too, to complete the picture – barrel-aged sazeracs and negronis, sherry-spiked martinis served in stemless glasses balanced on ice, and signatures like the Martina, with rum, fresh grapes, lemon juice, sugar syrup and soy sauce, and the Reminder, with mezcal, Campari and kombucha.
Good luck remembering that the next day.
NOTE: Do Not Disturb is opening on soft launch from 4th-24th February, with 25% off food and drink – book via email@example.com or find out more on their website right HERE.
