Marvellous bars in Marylebone
There’s the Artesian, the Langham Hotel’s bar, which is styled after the Victorian watering holes of yore. It’s an elegant spot for late-night cocktails. Whisky lovers should head over to Salt Whisky Bar & Dining Room, which offers an eye-popping collection of different whiskies (along with very good Indian food). The eponymous Marylebone dishes up creative cocktails in a traditional pub setting, while the ironically named Temperance is a straight-forward pub with an excellent selection of draught beers, bottled brews and fine wines.
Need a big space to bring the whole group? Bring the party over to Carbon, where you can sprawl out on sofas or prop up the long wooden bar for advanced-level cocktails in an industrial-inspired space. The jewel in Marylebone’s crown, however, is arguably Purl, a speakeasy-style cocktail den that’s become wildly popular. Booking ahead is a good idea. The bartenders really know their stuff, including everything from old-school classics to bespoke brews devised in-house.
