Bringing old school glamour to the leafy streets of Hammersmith, Smith’s Cocktail Bar is hidden away in the basement of the Brook Green Hotel.
In an area known mostly for its traditional English pubs, this is a really exciting find for those looking to spend a more refined evening. Juxtaposing exposed brick walls with velvet chairs, this bar will transport you to a different time.
The composer Gustav Holst famously taught in nearby St Pauls Girls School and Smith’s have created two signature cocktails in his honour: try the Brook Green Suite with malt whisky, sherry, redcurrant syrup, lemon juice and topped with soda, garnished with a redcurrant sprig. An elegant concoction.
