You’ll find Scarves Bar located inside the Rosewood Hotel in the heart of London’s Holborn, which sets the tone for this bar as it is not only set inside a characterful building, but it also boasts some incredibly stylish décor. Scarves Bar offers a luxurious setting in which you can enjoy many a cocktail concocted from some of the finest ingredients. You can expect comfortable sofas, leather arm chairs and mood lighting with live music on certain nights and a relaxed yet sophisticated atmosphere.

The staff at Scarves Bar are extremely friendly and knowledgeable and once we were seated, our friendly waiter was always at hand with a selection of recommendations. To begin our cocktail journey, I chose to sample The Waltz of the Snowflakes, which saw Absolut Elyx vodka mixed with Belsazar White, tamarind and dates, raspberry and cold brew coconut coffee. My partner chose a cocktail titled The Iron Lady, which saw Talisker 10yo whisky, porcini, spiced malbec reduction and galangal. We were instantly impressed. These cocktails contained flavours that we had never sampled together before, but which worked fantastically well.

“The cocktails are expertly crafted, and the knowledgeable staff are a real credit to this bar.”

Next up, I chose the Start Me Up which was a blend of Royal Salut 21yo whisky, poppy seeds, Campari, peach wine and horny goat weed. This was punchy and aromatic and really quite special. My partner then chose the Outside The Wall cocktail, which saw Bulleit Rye Whiskey mixed with Mancino Red, lingonberries, dill pollen, pink grapefruit and celery. Again, this sweet yet sour cocktail was wonderfully balanced.

Finally, I went for A Parrot’s Cure that was a mix of Snow Queen Vodka, Italicus Bergamotto and pandan and passion fruit kombutcha, and my partner chose the Poly Juice Potion which saw Ron Zacapa 23 rum, salamander blood, maple, black cardamom, citrus and IPA. We were anything but disappointed with these choices, and they finished off our evening perfectly.

We were highly impressed with Scarves Bar and can certainly see why it is a popular choice. The cocktails are expertly crafted, and the knowledgeable staff are a real credit to this bar.
