Found at The Sanderson near the heart of Oxford Circus, The Purple Bar is a deluxe and divine blend of rich purples and lavender velvets; boasting a chic and intimate space that is making it's way to becoming one of London's most talked about destinations.

Draped in violet silk opera curtains, and furnished with lavender Queen Anne chairs, purple etched Venetian mirrors, and a bar that looks like an enormous meteorite just fallen from the sky, Purple Bar not only resembles a luxurious jewellery box, it was actually designed to look like one. Hidden off the main reception area, it is an intentionally intimate bar, seating only around twenty in all. This not only adds to its comfort but also gives it a sense of calm exclusivity.

There are few places in London likely to deliver a more expertly prepared selection of cocktails than Purple bar; From their vintage classics collection with a 'Philadelphia Fish House Punch' to their 'Japanese Cocktail' with Remy Martin VSOP. They also house an array of champagne and offer a cocktail making class with their expert mixologists for a truly unique night out in our lush city. 

Cocktail Heaven is Sanderson's own cocktail making class which takes place in the dramatic backdrop of the luxurious Purple Bar. Guests have a chance to use specialist equipment to make their very own cocktails with the assistance of highly skilled mixologists.

We had the most wonderful evening. Not only was the setting fabulous, the drinks amazing and the food bits delicious, but what trumped everything was the outstanding service. I have never known such friendly attentive staff and for me, they made my evening. Highly recommend Donna visited Purple Bar Sanderson Hotel on 19 Mar 2016

Great cocktails and lovely bartenders, especially the blonde girl. Overall a great place with great decor despite being on the small side. Perfect if you want some chilled drinks and dont like those noisier bars

Didn't know this little bar existed. Beautiful and relaxing, felt i was a million miles away from the city. Very chic with attentive staff. Drinks make it worth the visit.

Got take here on a date and it hit the ticket. Feels quite special and luxurious. Wasnt really busy, which I suppose is good for the type of place. Quiet, chic, interesting cocktail place. I had a lovely Cosmo.

Really beautiful bar but definitely book up in advance. It's tiny so is very busy most of the time.. Cocktail are pretty expensive but so worth it!

The hotel holds two of my favourite bars in London. The Purple bar is an ultra luxurious vodka bar for hotel residents only, but it will be the inspiration for any bar I build in my house. The Long Bar on the other hand, is completely different. You sit on stools quite happily people watching everyone across from you whilst one of the best bar teams in London quite happily mixes drinks for you.

Very dramatic. Stunning bar but very expensive! Good for an expensive posh pre-drink before going to soho or a good after meal cocktail!
