The Polo Bar can be found located inside The Westbury Hotel on Conduit Street in London’s Mayfair. The Polo Bar has actually become a personal favourite of mine over the years. The décor inside is timeless, this bar has been classically designed, making it most fitting for the area, being just on the edge of Mayfair. When you arrive you will find a small army of friendly, well-dressed staff waiting to greet and seat guests. The Polo Bar offers a fine selection of cocktails, wine and Champagne, along with a small food menu.

When we arrived we were greeted warmly and shown to our table. We perused the menus and after much deliberation, we settled on our first choices. Up first I chose to sample a Foxy Lady cocktail, which saw a blend of Martin Miller’s gin infused with caramelised banana shaken with sugar, lemon and egg white. This cocktail was sweet and light and made for an excellent start to the night. My partner chose the Raffles Sling, which incorporated Bulldog gin, shaken with pineapple juice, lemon juice, Cherry Herring, Benedictine and Cointreau, this was a punchy, fruity cocktail that was wonderfully balanced.

Next up for me was a Russian Cobbler, which saw Beluga vodka shaken with fresh berries, lemon and homemade turmeric and lemongrass syrup, finished with a splash of Pedro Ximenez sherry. This was an aromatic cocktail with a great depth of flavour. This time my partner opted for an Ash Sour, which combined Bowmore 15 whisky with lemon juice, egg white, sugar and homemade liquorice bitters.

Finally, I chose a Summer in Warsaw cocktail, which was a blend of Belevdere grapefruit vodka with peach liquor, grapefruit juice, fresh raspberries and Amaro Averna. My partner chose the Blue Diamond, deemed to be the “ultimate Old Fashioned”, which saw Johnnie Walker Blue Label stirred with sugar soaked Ramazzotti Amaro, smoked with coffee. It was a bold strong cocktail that made for the perfect end to the evening.

Alongside our cocktails, we shared a selection of salmon and tuna sashimi, salmon and tuna nigiri and salmon and avocado rolls. The sushi perfectly complimented our cocktails and they made for a thoroughly enjoyable accompaniment. In fact, our entire experience at the Polo Bar was once again simply fantastic. This bar comes highly recommended by us.
