bbar & Restaurant

Cocktails and pre-theatre dining in Victoria

If you fancy heading out for a bite, then the lively bbar & Restaurant, on the ground floor and facing the Royal Mews of Buckingham Palace, is sure to prove an inspired choice. With its South African themed décor including vintage photographs of big game, faux giraffe skin fabrics, ethnic carvings, leopard spotted lampshades and polished zebrano wood table tops, bbar is a funky mix of safari chic and colonial cool.

South African themed Cuisine

Famous for its delicious burgers and salt beef sandwiches, the menu also has a strong South African accent lent by dishes like Springbok fillet, Grilled Boerewors Sausages and Bobotie Spring Rolls. Two bars serve an impressive 110 wines (over 50 by the glass) from an eclectic list of old and new world producers. Passionate mixologists prepare over 60 cocktails, from the classics to the more exotic, while the warm and relaxed service creates an invitingly intimate atmosphere.
