A cocktail bar at the second branch of the Zetter Townhouse hotel in Clerkenwell featuring drinks by Tony Conigliaro and food by Bruno Loubet.

Seymour’s Parlour, in the new Zetter Townhouse hotel, looks like the home of a well-travelled, eccentric booze collector. With its deep red walls, wooden furniture and fabric furnishings, it’s like a living room filled with a treasure trove of knick-knacks. On a Sunday evening as the sun began to set, candlelight brought old-fashioned charm. It feels more intimate than the original Zetter in Clerkenwell.

Unchanged is the quality of the house cocktails, a new selection (£9.50) devised by bar supremo Tony Conigliaro. Champagne concoctions include Le Sphinx, served in a wine glass with orange neroli honey and ambrette bitter: dangerously easy to drink. Last Laugh, cognac, apple brandy, apple caramel and apple wood bitters, had only a subtle hint of apple and surprising citrus notes. 

When I asked to go off-menu, a bartender perched at our table and discussed my penchant for anything sweet. He came back with a ‘Delicious Sour’ (£10.50), like a slightly melted sparkling peach slushy with a creamy foam top. Unforgettable. Among the snacks, ‘grown up chocolate fudge’ (£4) is pure indulgence. 

Like Zetter, Seymour’s Parlour is not expensive given the setting and the quality of the drinks. Stop at a couple of cocktails if you can – it’s hard to do. I recommend saving a visit for when you can try a fair few drinks. It’s the perfect spot for an intimate cocktail experience, with engaging surroundings and bartenders willing to accommodate even the pickiest.

Seymour's Parlour says
A visit to Seymour’s Parlour is an experience in itself. Candlelit & sumptuous with an open fire in Winter, you'll quickly feel you've stumbled upon a clandestine meeting (and drinking) place. Set on the ground floor of The Zetter Townhouse Marylebone, the parlour is awash with curious collections & antique furniture, feeling more like the private home of an eccentric relative (fondly known as Wicked Uncle Seymour!) than a conventional hotel & bar. Try a carefully crafted cocktail with homemade aromatics, cordials & tinctures, or tuck into the award winning afternoon tea. You can also expect to stumble upon one-night-only pop-ups from renowned bars from around the globe; or a party or masterclass where something of the moment is celebrated.
