Jimmy's Bar belongs to the great tradition of American Bars that became legendary in London and Paris from the 1920s on. The kind of place where Ernest Hemingway or F Scott Fitzgerald would have felt at home, its sober walnut interior subverted by an element of fun, in the form of hundreds of photographs of British and American characters who frequented Mayfair during the period.
The American Bar specialises in bourbons, American whiskies and classic cocktails, which are strictly shaken or stirred: nothing new-fangled here.
"The most handsome, most civilised bar to have opened in London in the past year feels as though it's been here forever." Tatler
Open every day from 11.30am to midnight (11pm on Sundays) for drinks, cocktails, hot drinks, light snacks, American sandwiches, salads, steaks and sundaes.
Please note that the American Bar does not take bookings.
