Description

THE STORY 

Bourne & Hollingsworth is a creative cocktail institution, artistic hub and late-night drinking den situated on the corner of Charlotte Street. Opened in 2007, B&H Bar was our first venue and this year celebrate its 10th anniversary.

Situated in the heart of Fitzrovia, Bourne & Hollingsworth was created in the spirit of excess. Catering for Londoners who yearn for an original space to relax, our basement bar has whimsical, luxurious stylings married with a laid-back and intimate parlour feel, reminiscent of a living room.

Inspired by famous parties and their hosts throughout history, the bar is small but perfectly formed, with beautiful eccentric interiors and an extensive cocktail menu providing guests who, like us, crave an escape from everyday life.

Hosting parties of all shapes and sizes throughout the last ten years, B&H Bar has established itself as a sought-after hangout for those in the know, providing a home-from-home respite from generic chain establishments and a refuge from the hustle and bustle of Oxford Street.

Along the way, we have formed our own party muses, from our real life (and larger than life) customers, hosting their own rather memorable events. They are our day to day motivation, providing us with stories, personal belongings and mementoes over the years, setting the tone and scene for Bourne & Hollingsworth Bar.

From Monday through to Saturday, the front room is open to all curious Londoner’s, making it the ideal location for after-work drinks, dates and catch-up tipples, and from 8pm the DJ lights up his decks with a collection of funk and soul transforming the bar into a space for hedonistic high-jinks and late-night dancing. 

Add a flourish to your evening with a visit to Bourne & Hollingsworth Bar, making cocktail drinking more memorable. 

NEW AUTUMN/WINTER MENU 

We love feelings, we love catering to your smouldering slinkiness when you're on a hot date, and we love to make you dance.

The new menu drinks are inspired by a whole load of music, colours, moments and emotions all wrapped up in delicious drinkable liquid form.

Feeling a little like Audrey? Sip a Tiffany with it's sophisticated bubbles and silver charm.

Mischievous and piratical? Swig the secret rum mix of the Black Pearl.

Whether raising your spirits with an iZombie or flashing elegant flirtations over a Belle Epoque, we have a drink that fits your mood.

After all, life is short, the night is long, the time is now.

PARTY BOOKINGS

We love a good party. Over the last ten years, we have hosted parties of all shapes and sizes and our four wallpapered walls have overhead many notorious secrets and scandals.

We also know that hosting can be pretty stressful, and because of this, we like to make it super easy. You can book a mixture of seated and standing space for up to 40 people with no minimum spend, no demanding dress codes and the option to bring your own nibbles.

Fitzrovia may be better known for its grand townhouses, cobbled little streets and swanky gastropubs, but hidden away from the Central London lavishness is Bourne and Hollingsworth’s bar, a cocktail spot that is mixing up the city centre...

Tasty concept of cocktails ~£10/drink, some wine and bottled beer on offer. They have recently refurbished and there is a LOT more seating space than before. A nice place for the start of a night or a tipple before the end. Not sustainable for a full night out as no food. visited Bourne and Hollingsworth on 27 Sep 2017

Tasty range of interesting cocktails - Love Potion no,.9 was worth a try. Unfortunately the bar was far too noisy - DJ played loud music despite the fact there was no space for dancing and everyone was sitting at tables talking (or trying to). visited Bourne and Hollingsworth on 29 Sep 2017

Fantastic! Love this bar and the bar staff were excellent. Carlos, Jeremy and the rest were great as always and the bar was perfect for a big group of people as you can mingle around with ease. Will be coming back again very soon visited Bourne and Hollingsworth on 30 Sep 2017

Came for the bottomless brunch, was ok but disappointed we didn't have the option for the full menu. The service was rather slow, wouldn't bother returning or recommending unless you lived close by.

I was expecting more from a Bourne and Hollingsworth bar as the restaurant and bar in east london is AMAZING, this bar was just a bit small and not a lot going for it. the decor was pretty but like I said thought it was going to a bit of a corker. I wont bother going back. jaymieoc visited Bourne and Hollingsworth on 25 Aug 2017

A teeny tiny little place underneath what used to be Bam-Bou (much missed. Garishly decked out, it is a bit of an assault on the eyes, but inside is a great little bolt hole. The cocktail menu is really inventive with a sprawling choice of liquor, from violet sours to Monkey Shoulder. Even if the mixology is a mystery, they have reassuringly nostalgic and familiar names like "Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice". Throw caution to the wind and try anything! Book a table or get their early, as it fills up fast! amymicheal visited Bourne and Hollingsworth on 23 Aug 2017

Dingy and smelled of damp. Very out of date and not the experience I was hoping for! The toilets were poorly decorated and overall I think the whole place needs a re vamp. The bar tender was pleasant and made a nice cocktail but I would not go back or recommend it to a friend. I was embarrassed that I'd made such a misjudged decision. visited Bourne and Hollingsworth on 16 Aug 2017

The staff were friendly and the venue is quaint. However, the cocktails were not good. I would not go there specifically for cocktails again. The use of pre-missed ingredients was obvious and it ruins the taste of any decent cocktail. visited Bourne and Hollingsworth on 11 Aug 2017

We booked out a space for twenty-something people and were amazed to turn up and find that is about half this cosy bar! Within minutes of sitting down the friendly bar manager - Alex - and the genuine and attentive DJ - Chewy - had both made time to get to know us a little and make sure we were set for the night. The service was top notch no matter how busy it got, and the atmosphere was great with a quirky interior, powerful sound system and great tunes. Finally, there is of course a tidy little collection of cocktails which we enjoyed working our way through. So all in all we were delighted with the whole night. Thanks also to Carlos behind the bar who made us some killer Breakfast Club cocktails - a must try for gin lovers if you go. visited Bourne and Hollingsworth on 29 Jul 2017

It was our (there were 5 of us) first time to B&H. We had a wonderful time. The space, ambiance, service were brilliant. We had a few rounds of gin cocktails that weren't on the menu, we asked to be surprised, and we were on each round. I ordered the cocktail of the month, 'Poolside Splash' - I hope I've got that right, which was everything one would expect by its name: refreshing, indulgent and cool. Thank you all to Friday's (26/5) team! vipul visited Bourne and Hollingsworth on 26 May 2017

This bar is great! Staff were really accommodating. We were running a little late and they still kept our tables reserved on a busy Saturday night and were really understanding about the delay. The DJ couldn't do enough for us and really tailored the song choices to the group. It was my hen-do and the DJ made an effort to come and speak to me and talk me through the nights music. Drinks were delicious! Highly recommended! visited Bourne and Hollingsworth on 22 Apr 2017

Staff were very friendly. Maybe TOO friendly! Drinks were okay. I think what took things down a notch for us was that the decor has gone a bit 1990s hotel cocktail bar. Sorry! Still love all B&H's other places. visited Bourne and Hollingsworth on 06 Feb 2017

Cute spot, little hard to find but worth it if you do as it's intimate and doesn't sit all that many. Gets you away from the horrible bustle of Oxford Street. A must for those willing to dish out a bit on good cocktail in a cutesy enviroment.
