Creative Cocktails

The Chambers presents an eclectic mix of innovative cocktails, named after some of London’s favourite Underground stations, such as Old Street, Leicester Square and even Gants Hill.

The cocktails are crafted using fresh, seasonal ingredients and sustainable bar practices – sitting alongside an equally well-curated wine list and an ever-rotating range of craft beers. There’s also a range of non-alcoholic drinks available, including coffee. 

The talented bar team is led by Bar Manager David Guerrero, who has been finalist and top 10 contender in numerous cocktail competitions, including the Southern Comfort Southern Showdown, Havana Grand Prix, Bacardi Legacy and Diageo's World Class.

Small plates for sharing

While the seasonal cocktail menu takes the spotlight at The Chambers, a supporting cast of bar snacks and small plates (both savoury and sweet) perfect for sharing forms a social dining experience.

For something a little more substantial, guests can move upstairs to the restaurant inside the newly refurbished The Chamberlain Hotel, opening 30 September.
