Square Meal Review of The Shenkman Bar at the Royal Academy of Arts ?

Named after the late Belle Shenkman, a London-based Canadian patron of the arts and member of the Royal Academy, this urbane basement bar adjoined to Peyton & Byrne’s Keeper’s House restaurant opens onto a charming oasis designed by landscaper Tom Stuart Smith, whose green-fingered prowess will be known to long-serving patrons of the Chelsea Flower Show. Appropriately, its (untitled) cocktails are prepared using ingredients that reflect the current season wherever practicable. The autumn crop, for example, might yield a combo of blackcurrant and rosemary vinegar, blackcurrant vermouth, rye and beetroot, a Scotch brose cream laced with chestnut honey or a mezcal fix involving rosehips, dry sherry, carrot and black sea salt.
