What is nice about the Lonsdale is that if you are really into drinks, they have lovely descriptions about everything on offer including a brief history of when and where they were created. Most folks go for the liberal policy on dancing in the aisles...More

The Lonsdale is an interesting late night bar and restaurant within a residential road in Notting Hill. I don't find it too interesting for food, but it's a lively place at the weekends for late night drinking with DJ.

I never look forward to corporate social events but this one (held at the private room at The Lonsdale) was different! The canapés were of an exceptionally high standard. Perfect mini burgers, chicken on a spoon with honey & mustard sauce, mini dumplings and a...More

We only went in for pre-dinner drinks. Their cocktail list is extensive. It has the feel of an upmarket night club. The service was good as were the drinks, albeit a little pricey. A nice way to start or finish the evening in a glitzy...More

Went there for our belated Christmas party. Meal was fantastic. Elderflower martini is a must try! And great vibe at the end of the evening. DJ was good too! We're all still raving about the steak.

A handsome spot with lively atmosphere, a long list of cocktails including classics and new creations. The music is hip and the crowd is well mixed. I recommend Lonsdale while in London.

Located down a quiet street in the exclusive Notting Hill, The Lonsdale is officially a lounge, DJ bar and restaurant. Unofficially it’s a futuristic and stylish premise for top notch intoxocology. The level of execution, creativity and passion for the art of drink-making simply deserves this new term. From the owners to the managers to the cocktail shakers, this bar is a laid back dragon’s lair of hospitality professionals with impressive track records. The luxurious, stylish décor coupled with a great soundtrack seeping through every room evokes a relaxing yet lively atmosphere bringing in a mixed crowd; locals and tourists, young professionals and older sophisticated diners. DJs brighten up prime evenings with groovy music in the way of R&B, hip hop, reggae, dance, and pop music- but nothing too cheesy. There isn’t really a dance floor but spontaneous bursts of wiggling and swaying often makes its way into the joyous party scene anyways. If there is space that is, as this bar is usually pretty full and vivid enough with chit chatter, mingling and mixology magic in action. The critically acclaimed drinks selection is known as “The Bible”, which features over 200 individual cocktail recipes. The cocktails are sourced from British history dating back to the 16th century as well as new innovations by the experimental intoxocologists. They have wines from around the world and an unparalleled choice of rare spirits. Imaginative and delicious flavours are not privilege to the drinks alone; their food menu has all the makings of a cool British eatery. The culinary experience features fine steaks, rare breed chops and vegetarian dishes, based around a respect for the best and most diverse produce. Ranked in the top 20 best bars from around the world by Drinks International, The Lonsdale is the perfect destination for any occasion from after work drinks to a nice meal. For a private function or birthday party- you name it- the whole venue can be exclusively hired or perhaps book the “Belle Epoque” upstairs members’ bar. The room is fully equipped hi-fi system, plasma TV and DJ booth
