The drinks menu at The Lonsdale is a connoisseur’s choice of fine wines and cocktails, reinforcing the venue’s long standing reputation as the industry standard cocktail bar. Beautifully designed, the cocktail menu is a definitive bibliography of cocktails and lists the earliest known cocktails such as the 16th century Drake’s Mojito and 19th century Punches and Cups, through to today’s contemporary classics.

The interior of The Lonsdale is designed by Dtwo, three times winners of Theme Magazine’s ‘best new late-night bar award’ and this year’s winners of the coveted ‘Ones to Watch’ award.
Dtwo’s Dave Knight says: “We understand The Lonsdale’s values and have adapted an already great, if slightly rough diamond, to transform it into a sparkling gem fit for the discerning West London crowd.”
