Situated in the heart of London’s St Pancras International Station, the elegant bar is part of the new St Pancras Renaissance Hotel, previously the Midland Grand Hotel.

An impressive range of spirits adorns the back bar and the cocktail list offers a choice of classics. The house cocktail, 1873 is named after the year the Midland Grand Hotel originally opened and combines Bombay Sapphire gin with apple, cranberry, rhubarb and charges it with CO2 to create a fizz. The flavours are subtle, a marriage of fruit and the botanicals in the gin.

The elegant bar is adjacent to Marcus Wareing’s restaurant, The Gilbert Scott and well worth a visit for a pre or post dinner drink.
