The 20 most beautiful bars in London

The Blue Bar at The Berkeley

Originally designed by David Collins, the man behind the aforementioned Connaught Bar, the Blue Bar inside The Berkeley hotel in Knightsbridge is a paradise for pastel lovers with walls painted a fetching shade of lavender with lilac seats to boot.

The beautiful blue-hued room features original Edwin Lutyens lighting and paneling lacquered with “Lutyen’s blue” – allegedly the bar boasts 50 different shades of blue.

The bar was recently given a refresh by Collins’ protégé Robert Angell, who introduced a white onxy bar and black crocodile print leather floor into the mix. We have to admit we prefer the original, pictured here, to the refresh.

In 2016 the bar was extended and a glass pavilion designed by Rogers Stirk Harbour & Partners added to it, which diffuses light throughout the bar.

Cocktails are categorised by colours – green, yellow, red and blue – each one denoting a different mood: green for long and fresh, yellow for elegant and effervescent, red for rich and complex, and blue for crisp, clean signature mixes.

  1. the whole room looks stunning!

    No need to say that those original Murano glass chandeliers are stunning!

  2. Hi, I’m very curious the see the Bar from the inside, but the picture somehow doesn’t not appear. Could you please adjust the link? Thanks.
