About The American Bar at The Stafford London
The American Bar at The Stafford is legendary and belongs to the great tradition of the American cocktail bars that became renowned in London and Paris during the 1920s and 30s. It remains one of the longest surviving American bars in London and is much-loved by its discerning clientele.
Blending English heritage with contemporary sophistication, its intimate corners and clubby atmosphere is the perfect setting for lively conversations every night of the week. Its striking mahogany wood-panelled memorabilia filled interiors are lined with an intriguing collection of artefacts donated by patrons and guests over the years, along with photographs of British and American celebrities who have frequented this stylish, luxury hotel.
Serving classics and signature cocktails, The American Bar is overseen by Bar Director, Benoit Provost whose creations, new and vintage, are a reference for cocktail lovers all over the world.
In contrast to the typically British interior, the bar menu is full of exciting Mediterranean inspired dishes, ideal for an al fresco lunch or dinner in the private cobbled courtyard.
Thank you for an excellent day- we have been coming to the American Bar for 20 years now and it still is the best place for us to meet in London. Service and staff in particular are excellent. See you next year. Kind regards Ian Skinner
My favourite sanctuary in London. Relaxed yet sophisitcated. The staff are utterly charming.
One comes here to eat for the atmosphere. Food and drinks were very good but also very pricey, even for London. Good people watching and a nice location to settle in and enjoy a lunch in a cozy atmosphere.
We had a very enjoyable time - lovely atmosphere. However the service was erratic. We were welcomed and our drinks etc served. The bar was quiet. There seemed to be quite a few staff but when we asked for 3 glasses of water they did not arrive and I had to go to the bar to ask. When other guests arrived they were immediately asked for their coats which were hung up in an adjacent wardrobe- but ours were left on a chair where we were sitting. When we ordered coffees- this took about 15-20 mins - and there seemed no reason for this since there were lots of staff .
I love the American Bar at The Stafford! It's my favorite haunt in London!
Lovely ambience and very attentive and polite staff made our lunch booking a wonderful experience, that I'd be happy to repeat., Thank you
Still a hidden jewel in the heart of Mayfair
I ordered the Club sandwich as did my son. The chicken was overcooked and hard. We had to leave it. I will not order it again.
Friendly and efficient staff. Comfortable and good lunch time menu, really enjoyed our time there.
Wonderful afternoon at one of my favourite places in London. First Class. Hope to be back soon.
Once again a flawless experience especially due to the welcome by Benoit - please just keep on doing what you do so well!
The American Bar st The Stafford is exceptional. I had been many times before however for my 5 guests this was their first visit and they LOVED it! The atmosphere, the wide ranging menu and the service was absolutely brilliant.
Delightful and friendly - great atmosphere and lovely staff.
our waitress was lovely and very helpful
A wonderful little oasis. Will certainly be back again soon.
We had the most wonderful visit. We were celebrating my brother's 50th birthday and our pre-lunch cocktails at The American Bar were the perfect start to a wonderful day. When making the reservation I had requested a specific table and was thrilled to find it allocated and set up for us on arrival. The service we received, particularly from the young Italian gentleman, was superb and the variety & quality of the drinks were excellent. My husband and I have been before (and will come back again) but this was the first visit for our guests and they were extremely impressed with everything so I think they too will be coming back again. Thank you.
Loved the venue and the atmosphere, beer was potentially off / wasn't brilliant and the service was a bit slow. Food was par. But overall experience was good.
Our first visit to the American Bar at the Stafford and we were not disappointed. The service and food were very good; we were made to feel welcome in a friendly manner.
Delightful refuge in the heart of the West End
An exceptional bar with exceptional staff. From the moment we arrived nothing was too much trouble. We loved the cocktails and food. Thank you so much for making it a memorable lunch.
Our favorite Bar in London!
Absolutely fantastic place. Great atmosphere with superb service. We stayed in the hotel for 2 nights and visited the bar on several occasions. Can’t wait to go back
The Stafford is a great place to have lunch. Always a lovely atmosphere. However, the service on the back patio was very very slow and inattentive. Never pleasant to have to be waving down a member of staff to get service.
Great cocktails and lovely to be able to eat and drink outside
