K Bar At The Kensington 22

Squaremeal Review of K Bar At The Kensington ?

Opulently revamped, the rebranded K Bar at The Kensington helps alleviate SW7’s dearth of swanky hotel lounges. Inside, this luxe looker is all honey-tone woods, copper shimmer, grouse-moor greens and divine art deco bronze doors (salvaged from Dublin’s GPO, complete with bullet marks from the 1916 Easter Uprising, we’re told). The whole operation scores well for charm, comfort and covetable cocktails. Highlights, prepared at an impressive padded bar with high stools, include a Trois Rivières sweet Daiquiri (£10) and a Knob Creek rye, Cherry Heering and applejack-based tribute to the Singapore Sling. Calvados and rhubarb bitters inform K Bar’s version of a Champagne cocktail, and the Crème Brûlée Martini is sheer liquid sin. Order wine (from £5.50 a glass) with posh snacks from The Kensington’s Townhouse restaurant, adjacent. Alternatively, let irresistible emerald plush sofas take you hostage, and linger over ‘classic or healthy’ afternoon teas (served noon until 5pm).

A perfect nightout

we were introduced to this bar by one of my colleagues and it has been the best suggestion ever since, for after work drinks or just a place to come in and relax, very clean and elegant and the ambience is just wow! The drinks selection is wide plus you can create your own cocktail which is a bonus. I love the chandeliers mostly. overall this is our best place to hang out.
