SquareMeal Review of Scarfes Bar at Rosewood London

Named in honour of political cartoonist Gerald Scarfe, whose colourful works hang on the walls, this bar has character in spades. There's a real buzz about the handsome room, with its velvet armchairs, standard lamps and shelves of antique books, while a swinging soundtrack makes it feel like a party in a Victorian parlour. The leather-bound ‘bartenders book’ is a delightful tome, containing 16 'house creations' and a brief but impeccably curated selection of wines, Champagne, port and sherry. There are a couple of craft beers too, but the pièce de résistance is a list of spirits that reads like a who's who of distilling – the whisky selection is a notable highlight. Staff in tartan ‘trews’ deliver properly mixed cocktails; our current favourite is the fresh, aperitif-style Thyme Out, a fragrant mix of Bombay Sapphire gin, Chartreuse, thyme, lemon juice and orange bitters.
