Venue says From just £33 per person, our award-winning afternoon tea is a must try!

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.

Wonderful cocktail bar, which served some of the best drinks I've had in London. The venue is really lovely and has a lavish, country club feel. The staff are also very friendly and the atmosphere is great but realistically it's all about the outstanding drinks on offer

An old world cocktail bar full of the most delightful drinks & welcoming staff. The sausage roll is really good too!


It's a cute little bar in the heart of Marylebone. Quirky but cozy, it actually feels like your favourite local pub. They have the friendliest stuff and a cute huge ceramic cat (or was it a dog?) for a 'reserved' sign. The menu reads short but satisfying and the small bites were tasty, delivered promptly and filling. But, I confess, I expected more. Maybe because of all the glowing reviews I've come across. Maybe because of the stellar experience I've had at Tony Conigliaro’s 69 Colebrooke Row, which never stops to amaze me. The same man is the mastermind behind the alcohol offering at Seymour’s Parlour, but somehow the cocktails we tried, although solid, didn't feel that inventive and boozy enough. The crowd is rather mixed: at the time we were in (Thursday evening) there were quite a few older people and American tourists (sneakers, baseball hats and all), although a hipper crowd did arrive later on. This bar wouldn’t become a destination in itself, but will be happy to stop by if in the hood.

My favorite bar in all of London. Wonderful atmosphere and friendly staff. They take cocktail crafting seriously.

Lovely place, we discovered this by accident simply opening google maps to find the nearest cocktail bar. But what a find. The place is quiet but with a lovely atmosphere akin to sitting in Sherlocks living room.

The staff were lovely and friendly and the cocktails topnotch. One even had some christmas tree in it :)
