Squaremeal Review of Met Bar at COMO Metropolitan London ?

Given its reputation, the Met Bar still deserves to be on any Mayfair to-do list – even if its 2012 makeover (mustardy brown colours and a bas-relief mural of jiving girls) is a tad disappointing. Fine cocktails are a big draw: root down (Chase vodka, beetroot purée and ginger) and Mayfair stinger (a Disaronno and vintage port julep served with a chocolate-coated port and amaretto jelly) suit contemporary tastes, while Tyburn cup (a rum-based old fashioned) will appeal to traditionalists. To eat, consider ham-hock-and-parsley terrine or kedgeree cakes among the choice of pukka snacks from a fiver. With many hot contenders on its doorstep, the Met now faces much stiffer competition than in its Cool Britannia heyday, when it was the must-crash party HQ for Kate Moss and her acolytes.

A small space with a handful of deep red leather banquettes, an impressively long bar and a tiny dancefloor for the tiny models and...

My friends and I went to the Met Bar a few Wednesdays ago for my birthday, and even though I wasn't a member I called up in advance and they arranged a guest list for me (after asking me a few questions). I can safely say it's still the place to see and be seen! The music was amazing and the cocktails were delicious although I have to say they weren't cheap, but they were pretty strong! The service was excellent and the best part was we were sharing the bar with Jaime Winstone, Alfie Allen, Henry...
