I intend to write what might be called a rave review for Janet's Bar. It is, without a doubt, my favourite place in London. It has a quirky, authentic all-American vibe, from it's quirky interior decor to it's personalised menus to the owner herself, a New Yorker with an infectious laugh and ready smile. The atmosphere is laid-back and friendly, the bar filled from wall to wall with relaxed, stylish clientele. The staff are waiting on hand to take your order and deliver your drinks promtly, so there is no hanging around and no frustration on your part. Janet may also come into the bar and take your order herself. She'll be eager to make your acquaintance and chat to you; If she knows you, she will call you by name and make you feel instantly at home again. The drinks themselves are worth the prices, which are good when you bear in mind that the bar is located right at the heart of London's most upmarket area. There's an extensive list, so whether you feel like a delicious cocktail, a cold beer, a bottle of wine or champagne, whiskey, or a soft drink, there will be something to your liking. Furthermore, there's live music, which is hard to come by in good London bars these days, playing at a reasonable decibel level so you don't have to shout to make yourself heard! The musician is incredibly talented and his songs really add to the vibrant atmosphere. While other venues in the area shut their doors before midnight, Janet's stays open so it's the perfect place to spend your evening. You can sit at the bar, at a table indoors, or out on the terrace and breathe in the city while you have a drink. I recommend taking friends there for a good catch up or going to have some drinks before a night out on the town. It's also a lovely place to wind down after work. You might also be offered a complementary snack, which is always a treat! Janet's Bar is such a gem, really. It's no surprise that Janet has so many loyal regulars and a dedicated bar staff. I highly recommend it. Like me, once you've experienced it you'll keep going back.
