Met Bar is located on the ground floor of the Metropolitan on Park Lane. This is a nice spot to grab a few cocktails to begin your evening, they have a superb selection of cocktails and spirits. When we visited it was peaceful and we chose a table on the upper level which added to the feeling of seclusion. The quality of cocktails was very high, and the bartender will provide a personal mixology experience based on your preferences if you so wish.

To begin I ordered the ‘Lemony Snicket’, this cocktail was mixed with Fresh Lemongrass, Apple Juice, and Homemade Cider Syrup. Then shaken with Cocci Americano, Overproof Rum, Flor de Cana 4yr Rum, and a dash of Celery Bitters. It was served over ice and delivered a fragrant and fruity aroma with an undeniable rum kick. My partner opted for the ‘Met Michelada’, this is the Met Bar’s own version of the Mexican classic and uses their own secret house spice mix. It also includes Fresh Lemon, Don Julio Blanco Tequila, Spiced Tomato Juice, and Beer. It delivered a strong Southern American taste with a refreshing kick.

“An absolute must, this is mixology at its finest.“

Next, I ordered the ‘Hinge and Bracket’, a fruity cocktail mixed with Fresh Raspberries and muddled with Lemon and Sugar, Shaken with Peach Liqueur, 30yr Sherry, and Tanqueray No. Ten Gin, and served frappe. Another excellent example displaying the quality of the cocktails at Met Bar. My partner ordered the ‘On Your Marks’, mixed with Peach Liqueur, Orgeat, Fresh Lemon, Angostura Bitters, and a touch of Maker’s Mark Bourbon. It was then double shaken with Egg White to add texture and served straight up.

Finally I ordered the ‘Root Down’, a savoury and sweet cocktail comprising of English Beetroot Puree, shaken with Herefordshire produced Chase Vodka, Fresh Lemon, Ginger, and Cinnamon Sugar. This cocktail was served long over ice and topped with a splash of Ginger Beer, an all important finishing touch to a superb cocktail. My partner opted for the ‘Mayfair Stinger’, this drink brought together a combination of Disaronno Originale, Fresh Mint, Ramos Pinto 20yr Tawny Port, and was shaken then served straight up. This is a great after-dinner cocktail and leaves a very satisfying taste.

There are few ways to get your evening off to a better start than sampling a few cocktails at Met Bar. An absolute must, this is mixology at its finest and you will not leave disappointed.
