Scarfes Bar at Rosewood London

SquareMeal Review of Scarfes Bar at Rosewood London

Gold Award

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 and staff in tartan 'trews' 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. Properly mixed cocktails meanwhile, pay homage to caricatures of Scarfe, and this is the first time that the entire bar team has been involved in the menu's creation, with everyone from the bartender and waiter to the barback and host, helping to curate the delicious collection.

I visited Scafes on two consecutive nights cocktails. It was certainly buzzy on the Saturday night. The Sunday night was less busy but they had some live music. The cocktail selection is very good and the cocktail makers certainly know how to make them. Well worth a visit.
