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.
Fantastic place and great service/food
What a great evening, everything was perfect
Professional team made us feel welcome
Had a great day in the courtyard . Food and service were spot on great friendly atmosphere. Looking forward to returning. Drinks and cocktails were amazing 5star all the way.
Fabulous. Thank you in particular to Camille who was so kind.
Once again an enjoyable afternoon in the sanctuary that is The Stafford. Superb food, wine and service.
Good venue considering the current restrictions. Food was ok although not a very imaginative choice on the menu
A delightful spot with wonderful relaxed friendly service. Delicious food, beautifully executed and presented. On the pricey side, especially for the excellent cocktails and wine list. Will definitely be back.
A lovely first lunch out following lockdown !
Beautiful lunch, aided greatly by cracking weather. Attentive and very competent service, delightful food in a very atractive setting given the current restrictions on dining inside. Hope to repeat the expereince again soon.
Another amazing experience at The American Bar. This is always a go to place for us and the service is impeccable!
Lunch (Hawksmoor BBQ) was delicious but lost temperature quickly as outside - could look at serving hotter or using hot plates next time. Service was good but did need to ask for assistance a few times as opposed to the team checking in
We went to the BBQ event on the 24th April with Hawksmoor outside in the Courtyard. Tt was absolutely fabulous. The service is wonderful, nothing is too much trouble. The food and drink delicious. The range of wines available wide and they had our favourite red on the menu which was even better.
Enjoyed the afternoon but were rushed out with no offer of desert or coffee. We had to continuously ask where our drinks were and during dinner they lost out wine and had to find another bottle. I appreciate that it was busy but I do not expect that to effect a restaurant of your standing. The staff were very friendly but obviously over stressed by either not enough of them or poor organisation by the management. The sommelier was excellent and the waitresses very pleasant. I would book again but hope you can review your structure to make the day enjoyable and not rushed out so precipitously
Great lunch and, as ever, the staff and service are exceptional.
Fantastic location fantastic staff and a great time had. We will be back.
Great to be back with the experience as good as always.
Wonderful service, great drinks and delightful setting. Highly recommend.
Good to the same staff back and with such a well equipped outdoor space, what's not to like.
really good. Very English food at it’s best. Definitely go there again Thanks so much
Great venue, food and service.
A very warm welcome and although we arrived early we were shown to our table within a few minutes. The food and drinks were excellent as always and the atmosphere was lovely as everyone was enjoying themselves. Thank you to all the staff who worked so hard. We look forward to coming back soon.
We had a wonderful afternoon sipping on rosé in the sunshine on The Stafford’s beautiful terrace. A relaxed and friendly atmosphere - we’ll be back!
Delightful first evening out of lockdown restrictions and much looking forward to our next visit
