Located in a former illegal strip club, our basement bar has been home to a crack team of cocktail-geek bartenders for the last 4 years with both the bar and the people winning numerous accolades as amongst the best the world’s cocktail industry has to offer. Our newly launched menu features numerous Hawksmoor classics from what we think of as our ‘gin years’ including Shaky Pete’s Ginger Brew and Marmalade Cocktail.

Ten years on the gin will either make you ultra-creative or head-throbbingly depressed and thankfully for us it was the former, and those classic Hawksmoor drinks are joined by what can best be described as the result of our bartender’s unique talent and fertile imagination. Many of the new drinks feature unusual homemade bitters, shrubs and syrups, like Sunset Sazerac (Strawberry Cognac, Coconut Bourbon, Pineapple Bitters & Absinthe), Shadow Boxer (Chivas 12yr, Blackberry & Maple Shrub, PX & Fernet Branca) and Devil's Heart (Mezcal, Pomegranate Shrub, Jameson Sloe Berry Bitters, Sherry, Citrus & Merchant Heart Ginger Ale).

Bar food is a greatest hits list of the best from all our bars over the last decade, including shortrib nuggets (a Time Out ‘Top 10 Dishes in London’), burgers, dogs, lobster rolls and poutine.

A word from the chef:
It's a cocktail bar primarily, but you can still pick up some delicious bar snacks courtesy of the kitchen upstairs. The menu features pig's cheek nuggets, nacho cheese chicken sandwiches, cheeseburgers and much more.

Hawksmoor steaks are amazing and the staff are always friendly and helpful. Atmosphere is great but it is pricey

Grazie ad un amico ho scoperto questo ristorante meraviglioso e posso garantire che una volta entrati non vorrete più uscire. L'offerta è molto ampia e la carne è di altissima qualità: vi consiglio di dare un'occhiata alla carta dei vini perchè ne vale veramente la pena.

Great venue for work drinks and burgers. We had booked a booth which was great because of the comfortable leather seats. I had the Short Rib French Dip sandwich that was absolutely delicious.

A really enjoyable night at a charming restaurant. The food was spectacular, the service was top class and the wine went down very well. Will definitely be returning soon! Would highly recommend.

I was blown away by this bar. Usually restaurant bars play second fiddle to the restaurant but I didnt not expect this place. A secret, hidden away speakeasy vibe and an amazing "hidden gem" in its own right. Cocktails were very solid and (as youd expect) the bar snacks menu was to die for! Love it.

I love Hawksmoor and highly recommend it. I have travelled alot and have tasted steaks in Argentina, South Africa and the US, where the steak has always been superior to British steaks. But then along came Hawksmoor who have discovered that you can get some of the best reared meat in the world here! The restaurant is modern, superb service and has a real edge and buzz to it. I also love popping in for a cold beer at the bar. This is one of my favourite places to come and dine in London.
