Squaremeal Review of Janet's ?

They don’t make ‘em like Janet any more. This blonde New York ex-lawyer has owned her eccentric bar since 1997, creating a buzz through Facebook and her own feisty personality. The interior defies description, an art installation rather than considered design with shocking pink walls, myriad mementoes, newspaper cuttings, balloons, flags, fairy lights, gold dancing shoes and an F1 racing driver’s suit, plus a terrace for smoking and people-watching. Loud, funky music is masterminded by Janet and her student daughter, while the Hungarian head honcho serves up a mean Manhattan, hot toddies in winter and ‘house jugs’ of gin, sloe gin, cider and fresh fruit come summer. It’s defiantly non-ageist and in a city of slick cocktail bars, it’s a breath of fresh air.

The staff are waiting on hand to take your order and deliver your drinks promtly, so there...

My friends and I absolutely LOVE Janet's Bar. We've been going there weekly ever since we discovered this amazing little gem at the hub of South Ken. I highly recommend it! The atmosphere is lively, vibrant and welcoming, just like the owner herself. Janet knows all her regulars by name and is always ready to acquaint herself with new faces. The interior is unpretentious and fun- from the personalised menus to the photographs of well-dressed customers papering the walls, it's clear that this is a...
