Bar: 11am until 1am (Sunday – 12pm until Midnight)
Our homage to Sixties London, The Donovan Bar serves expertly-mixed cocktails and a menu of HIX British snacks. Enjoy DJ nights and live jazz in intriguingly clandestine surroundings. Its namesake would expect nothing less.
Named in honour of British photographer Terence Donovan, the bar’s walls are lined with over 50 of his black and white prints. The extensive range of wines, champagnes and cocktails are all served with a twist of style. Order up our signature Donovan Martini and take a seat in the ‘naughty corner’ with Donovan’s more risqué pictures. Alternatively, sit beside the original 19th century stained glass window of St George in one of the coolest bars in London.

Originally from Luciani in southern Italy, Bar Manager Giovanni Cassino joined us in 2010. His carefully crafted range of must-try cocktails sees guests flocking back time and time again.
