Portobello Star


Portobello Star is an historic bar in Portobello Road, open since 1740 it has served drinks to the likes of royals, beggars, scarlet ladies, drunkards, intellectuals, popular musicians of the day, and now just the cool, fun crowd of Notting Hill.

Specialising in handmade liquor, all Portobello Star Signature Cocktails are made using the team’s own in-house spirit infusions. Handcrafted concoctions are then mixed with specially crafted bitters and luxury syrups, all of which are created in a central London laboratory by a team of highly skilled mixologists and cocktail bartenders.

Customers can immerse themselves in the cosmopolitan and stylish surroundings of west London’s busiest market road while sipping on house infused spirits, exotic cocktails and premium beers, including the exclusive Beavertown Gamma Ray beer which flows on tap. Why not book in for a mixology masterclass and learn the tricks of the trade and just how to make that perfect Whisky Sour or Smoked Negroni?

Having already established itself as a hub for locals, market visitors and tourists alike, the Portobello Star is also becoming a sought-after destination for private apartment parties, offering organisers the opportunity to host an intimate house party without worrying about any of the cleaning up after! A favourite for society celebrations and industry launches, the apartment party is an on-trend option for hosting high-end celebrations in stylish surroundings while serving superior food and drink to your guests.

Portobello Star is quickly becoming the place to be seen in west London.
