About The Lobby Bar at One Aldwych

One Aldwych lies at the heart of London’s thriving theatre, food and culture scene, located in Covent Garden just opposite Somerset House. Comprising a hotel, restaurant and bar, spa and plenty of venue space available to hire, it’s an iconic destination geared up for numerous occasions. The Lobby Bar is one of them, and it serves the city all day. From early morning meetings and light lunches to evening aperitifs and nightcaps, this luxurious lounge serves high quality drinks and light bites from dawn until dusk.  

Expect silky service, a stylish ambience and classy cocktails with a high price tag. Expensively put together with dramatic floral displays and objets d'art, the airy room has sleek polished stone floors and large double-height windows to create a sense of occasion. Guests can take a seat at the black marble top bar, or relax in a more intimate corner on one of its curved red sofas - let the expertly-crafted drinks come to you! 

A dramatic cocktail list lives up to the décor and features plenty of classics and One Aldwych specials. Examples of which include the Pink Panther made with sloe gin, Chambord, cranberry juice and rosé Champagne, and a Highland Fling featuring whisky, raspberry and rhubarb liqueur, elderflower, lemon and soda.  Mocktails, spirits, aperitifs and an approachable international wine list are all on the menu, while bar snacks are pitched firmly at the hotel's well-heeled international clientele. From 10pm, guests can indulge in the bar’s late night dining menu on dishes such as club sandwiches, caeser salad and a beef burger with chips.  

There’s also a menu designed in collaboration with Somerset House, for their Beano exhibition, where you can feast on bangers and mash, ice cream sundaes and cocktails such as the Rule Breaker. There’s plenty of fun to be had!

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Afternoon Tea
I took my sister for afternoon tea for her birthday, while the service was very good I was disappointed by the atmosphere as we were in the lobby of the hotel. I would have preferred to be in a restaurant. The afternoon tea was ok but not very well themed and was a bit disappointing. I thought the Alice in Wonderland Afternoon Tea at The Sanderson was much better.
