Portobello Star is a historic bar in Portobello, 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. A little bar with fantastic cocktails and lovely homemade food, it has recently received the Class Best Bar and the Gregor DeGruyther Good Time Award. 

If you are a Gin lover then you have to try their Gin Blending, Tasting and Creating Experience. Instructor Jake F Burger will take you through London's second smallest museum, The Ginstitute, where you will be showered in Gin's history going through hundreds of years. After that, you will be brought upstairs for the fun; test your senses and imagination in order to create a delicious (hopefully!) Gin to bottle and take home!

A really good cocktail bar. Small and intimate but does exactly what you want from a west london cocktail bar (not pretentious though...which is good!)

Went here for a post work drink last week. The Portobello Star is a nice but small bar that has a nice intimacy about it. Good selection of drinks and the famous pork pies on the menu were yummy!
