For Your Social and Drinking Pleasure…
Bourne and Hollingsworth is London’s original speakeasy bar. Celebrating its 6th Birthday this year, this discreet basement bar on Rathbone Place has spurned multiple copycat Prohibition style joints over the years. Always moving forward and raising the bar when it comes to quality and innovation, Bourne and Hollingsworth have rejuvenated their world-class cocktail menu with a number of exciting new creations.
This modest and charming bar in the heart of Fitzrovia is where it all began for some of London’s most popular and ground breaking events. Large scale, spectacularly themed events such as Blitz Party and Prohibition all started in Bourne & Hollingsworth and led to the development of many other brands, including The Chap Olympiad, Rev JW Simpson, Kitchen Party, SS Atlantica and Wyndstock.
Named after the nearby ‘Are you being Served’ style department store, which formerly stood on Oxford Street, Bourne and Hollingsworth’s atmosphere rests comfortably between that of a gentleman’s club and a chintzy 1920s tearoom, contrasting flowered silk wallpaper and lace tablecloths with a dark green leather panelled bar and soda siphons.
Looking to the sharp and sophisticated concoctions of the glamorous past for inspiration, the new cocktail list at Bourne and Hollingsworth features expertly made exquisite and unusual cocktails.
