Squaremeal Review of Zander ?

One of the longest bars you’re likely to encounter, Zander attracts swarms of thirsty commuters, hotel guests and visitors to the adjoining Bank restaurant with its mix of stainless steel, futuristic padded purple sofas, subdued lighting and comfy little nooks – perfect for a business tête-à-tête or sly assignation. Sit at the bar, admire the rows of spirits, and enjoy premier treatment from courteous staff. Martinis, Mai Tais, Mojitos, Daiquiris and other classic cocktails are designed for sharp-suited guys and high-heeled girls, as are newer riffs such as Kim Sha (Finlandia vodka, puréed white peach, raspberries, passion fruit, peach and pomegranate). You can also pick from a line-up of malt whiskies, draught beers and wines (a modest selection) to go with top-notch bar nibbles including Asian sharing platters, mezze, salads and burgers.

Wonderful find

Editor's pick Davy's wine bar having shut, we needed an alternative venue. Zander bar was it and we'll be back for sure. Wonderful value, friendly and welcoming staff and not afraid to give their recipe away for the Thai salad. Thank you.

Never on a Monday - nor other days

by   platinum reviewer (62)

Sep 2013

I met one of my friends at the Zander Bar for a post work drink on a Monday night, we ended up going here as it’s roughly mid way between her work and my work, but next time we’ll be finding an alternative. The last time I went for a drink here was many years ago – though I have walked through it to get to Bank Restaurant on several occasions, but only at lunchtimes – when this used to be a bit of a place to go, boasting at the time the longest bar in London. It’s sadly not anything like as sexy...

Zander is tucked away in the back streets and civil servant offices around Victoria but it's worth seeking out. The bar is indeed long and very purple but there's lots of cosy nooks to sit in and it was pretty quiet last Saturday evening. The staff were great and were happy to check when we asked if we could sit outside in the restaurant courtyard (which we did). The drinks list is extensive and not unreasonably priced. I'd definitely go again if in the area.
