The 20 most beautiful bars in London

The Artesian at The Langham

Voted the world’s best bar no less than four times, a cocktail at the Artesian is a right of passage for any self respecting drinks connoisseur.

Nestled within the plush bosom of The Langham hotel in Marylebone, the decadent cocktail den rose to prominence under the dream team of Alex Kratena and Simone Caporale, whose daring drinks changed London’s cocktail landscape.

Among their quirky concoctions were the Unfinished Business, a Manhattan aged in a leather wine skin; the Tanqueray 10 laced Camouflage served in a golden pineapple; and the Join the Colony – a vodka-based sip served in a giant ant.

In keeping with The Langham’s opulent interiors, the Artesian is all Art Deco elegance, with its purple, silver and white colour scheme.

Its regal purple leather seats, high ceilings and gorgeous silver detailing on the wall panels creates the feeling of drinking in the drawing room of a rich great aunt with exquisite taste in soft furnishings and chinoiserie.
