A constantly evolving space, Artesian at the Langham is world-renowned for its award-winning cocktails served in a luxurious setting. Here, innovation is key, with the passionate team of mixologists coming up with new drinks list in line with the seasons, to keep things interesting. Indulging in a serve here is much more than the sum of its parts, it’s the collaborative experience of enjoying incredible service and world-class cocktails in one of London’s plushest hotels.
The drinks list is split into five sections centred around the theme of connection (Sustainability, Happiness, Wellness and Mindfulness, Celebrations and Community) and drifts from strong and straight up through to light and floral. Favourites include Golden Hour (gin, elderflower liqueur, jasmine, rhubarb, sandalwood, pepper and bittered sling Lem-Marrakesh) as well as Treat Yourself 2.0 (vanilla vodka, rose vermouth, clarified strawberry milkshake and rose Champagne). Aside from the billed ingredients you can expect polished presentation and a quirky garnish every now and then too.
In line with developing tastes, Artesian also offers interesting low- and no-alcohol options. The Cherry on Top mocktail combines Everleaf Mountain (a vodka substitute) with non-alcoholic Champagne and a cherry pistachio cordial.
Alongside the accomplished drinks list – which includes additional wines, Champagnes, spirits and beers – there is also a carefully curated menu of snacks to help keep hunger at bay. Here you’ll find crowd-pleasing light bites like Cornish crab on prawn toast or a crisp sole role with lemon mayonnaise and capers alongside heartier fare such as fried chicken with hot sauce and the Langham beef burger topped with cheese, burger sauce and pickles.
