We had a fabulous evening at the Artesian on Saturday. We only intended to pop in for one drink, but stayed for several. My favourite was the “Bees Knees”, which was delicious, the presentation was immaculate and a great recommendation based on my personal taste from the team there. It was the professional, yet friendly service that really was unique compared to many of the 5* hotel bars in London. Anna, you really made our night one to remember, thank you, we’ll be back soon!

We wanted to have a snack and ended up here. Lovely and roomy and comfy window seating too bright and lovely lilacs and oriental themed bar. Teas were fine and light and got extra hot water too. The vegetarian focaccia with peppers and burrata and tapenade was delicious and large portion top. The scones which they kindly brought us from palm court was so airy and fresh and warm. Staff were helpful but it did get busy so service did get slower. Lovely venue for a snack of a cocktail or two.

This is a beautifully decorated cocktail lounge in the Langham Hotel. I noticed a few tables order various cocktails served in interesting vessels, but we stuck with draft beers and champagne. We had a few small plates which were very good. A little pricey, but you are in London in the gorgeous Langham Hotel!

Really decent room. Brilliant central location. Reasonably priced for where you are etc. Came at lunchtime and shared a couple of bottles nice wine, but therefore I couldn’t comment on the current evening ‘vibe’ - but at lunchtime it did feel a little like a hotel bar (albeit a very good one) rather than a destination cocktail establishment.

Since a change of ownership Art has been withdrawn from this bar. This bar should fall on its sword and adopt the new name Sian. Art has most definitely left the building. No longer are your cocktails served in the most artistic fashion. They have been demoted to state school. The previous creations were the Michelin star of cocktails, now you are in the realms of rucksacks and dressing downers,. Think again if your expectations are high as when you hand over your £17 per cocktail expect to be disappointed
