Recently went here for pre-dinner drinks with friends. The staff were friendly and attentive. The drinks (cocktails) were good if a little pricey (but not much so for a London hotel). Good atmosphere and table snacks. Worth a visit.

Great place to go for late evening drinks and to chat! The music is great and quite loud (in a good way) so it has a great vibe, but not really the place for dancing!

After a long day of meetings my colleagues and I came for some much needed drinks. They have some excellent champagnes available by the glass and a decent wine list. I didn't try any of the cocktails but the menu had some interesting choices. The decor here is beautiful and service was generally good. Atmosphere is lively and we had... More

We popped into the Blue Bar for a couple of post shopping drinks on a busy Sat. The M'aitre D was lovely and escorted us to our table. However the excellent service was duly soured by the most atrocious waitress I have ever encountered. She walked away when I started to speak initially and then knocked my leg without so... More

We were dining in the hotel and having visited the Blue Bar when in the area before we were looking forward to going back. Boy we weren't disappointed, astounding atmosphere, exceptional service and a blooming very very good Bloody Mary. You get what you pay for but don't expect it to be as reasonable as a round of drinks in... More

Get there early - by 5.30pm - to get a seat without waiting. First class service, drinks and atmosphere. Cocktails range from GBP 16-18. Non stop refills of complimentary delicious truffle flavoured cashews and cheese style twists. Great music. Some seats slightly uncomfortable. You can order food - small snacks - highly recommended!

We were lucky enough to visit the Blue Bar at the Berkeley Hotel as a result of tracking down a gentleman who previously worked elsewhere, with whom we'd become friendly on two other visits to London. He had recently begun working at the Blue Bar, and we were generously directed there to find him. It's a cozy and beautiful space.... More

The Blue Bar at the Berkeley hotel in Knightsbridge has been refurbished and re-opened this summer 2016. Just a short walk from the station, this is a great place to go for a modern, luxurious experience. The cocktails were delicious and I especially recommend the minted fizz. There is a selection of non-alcoholic cocktails, great if someone in your party... More

Staying in Belgravia

Neighbourhood Profile
Home to the vast majority of embassies and diplomatic residences in London, sophisticated and upscale Belgravia also boasts a wealth of luxury hotels, fine dining restaurants, and some of the city’s most stroll worthy lanes. While the prices here are high, taking a leisurely stroll through the streets of picturesque and elegant white stucco houses is free. Hyde Park and the Buckingham Palace Gardens are only a stone's throw away to the north, and some of Europe’s best shopping is nearby as well.
