Dress code: Although London forever strides ahead, elegance never goes out of style. So whilst there’s no strict rule book for our dress code, The Dorchester is very keen on the habit of dressing brilliantly. We kindly suggest no sportswear and wearing smart shorts only by day, not by night.
Guests: Adults only
Vibe: The place to be
This is where life is lived not in minutes but in a collection of splendid moments. Inspired by the legends that surround us and brought to life with creativity and character, we warmly welcome you to a place of endless possibilities.
The place to be
Serving up an illustrious history and lively reputation, our bar has long been London’s ultimate destination for cocktail sipping, celebrating and deal making. Here, every drink is poured into bespoke glassware and savoured alongside a cool soundtrack and globally-inspired bites from the eclectic bar menu.
All in the name
The Vesper Martini first starred in the James Bond novel, Casino Royale, differing from Bond’s usual martini in that it uses both gin and vodka instead of dry vermouth, and lemon peel instead of an olive.
Masters of the bar
Stepping into this atmospheric space reveals our award-winning team of cocktail alchemists, ready to fix up whatever your heart desires. Classic and experimental cocktails, concoctions from rare and forgotten recipes or just a glass of your ‘usual’.
When it comes to dining, further delights adorn our carefully curated menu. Think elegantly dressed rock oysters, crispy lobster tempura and tempting truffle pizzette.
A modern classic
Vesper Bar showcases strikingly beautiful, contemporary design from London’s interiors specialist, Martin Brudnizki. Inspired by the spirit and sophistication of the roaring thirties, the bar's playful, eye-catching atmosphere is simply a delight.
Shaken and stirred
Our welcoming bar team are ready to rustle up your drink of choice, including the more extraordinary creations on our ‘Stories’ menu.
Experience a night to remember at London’s latest destination bar. Tucked away in The Snug – an intimate space made entirely private by the swish of a tasselled curtain – you’ll enjoy the best of Vesper Bar’s cocktails and light bites in your own exclusive location.
The bar team are your storytellers, drink masters and cocktail creators. Your only task is to relax, choose your tipple and have a wonderful time.
As a leading name in the world’s most culinary diverse city, The Dorchester has something to enchant every appetite.
