Mayfair has long been a favourite haunt of the rich and privileged, but that doesn't mean the bars are stuffy. Places like Trader Vic's and the infamous Mahiki are fun and kitschy. Those wishing to enjoy more elegant surroundings might try the sophisticated and inviting Coburg Bar or Library, with its gorgeously appointed interior.

Mayfair Bars

Coburg Bar

  • Rated as: 5/5
  • Critics choice

The Connaught has always had the most country house-like feeling of London’s great hotels, and the effect reaches perfection in the effortlessly beautiful Coburg.

The Connaught Bar

  • Rated as: 5/5
  • Critics choice

Among the villas and mansions in the heart of Mayfair is one of the city’s best hotels – The Connaught is luxury on a different level and its two bars are both unsurprisingly stunning.

Library

  • Rated as: 4/5

Across the road from Hyde Park and carefully muffled against the noise of Hyde Park Corner sits the Lanesborough, a former hospital that now offers a rather more luxurious kind of sleepover.

Claridge's Bar

  • Rated as: 3/5

Claridge’s remains one of London’s best hotels. The downside: everyone knows it, and its beautiful bar (designed by David Collins) can be a little oversubscribed.

Donovan Bar

  • Rated as: 3/5

Any bar that features something called a Sticky & Sweet-ini needs to be approached with caution, even if it is named after one of the finest photographers ever to snap London’s Swinging Sixties.

Mahiki

  • Rated as: 3/5

Don’t try to take this mock-Polynesian palace seriously. You can’t. It’s silly, it’s tacky, it attracts monied airheads – and it’s bags of fun.

Polo Bar

  • Rated as: 3/5

‘Art deco lite’ might best describe the look of the Westbury Hotel’s Polo Bar: the bar is marble-topped, the tables are inlaid wood, the pillars chunky and square.

Trader Vic's

  • Rated as: 3/5

This warren of Samoan-themed, carved-wood campery in the bowels of the Hilton has been here since 1963. There’s even a cocktail in honour of its arrival: the London Sour.
