Beaufort House Chelsea
Visitors to the Beaufort House Chelsea can look forward to an extensive cocktail list to accompany their meal. This upmarket restaurant and bar is one of the best venues close
to Chelsea hotels, and can be booked for special occasions and private hire.
The more ‘open’ element of a private member’s club in the local area, the venue employs an expert team of mixologists who take a real pride in creative cocktail-making. Its not only adults who can enjoy the space, either – the venue stresses it is family friendly, with a strong menu for children.
As an award-winning brasserie, you can expect much from Beaufort House and be sure it will deliver, including providing diners with a stylish atmosphere which will make you feel like part of the member’s club without the hassle or expense of joining.
The Chelsea Corner
Perfectly situated for guests at a Chelsea hotel in London UK, The Chelsea Corner is an Italian restaurant and cocktail bar with sleek décor and an equally sleek menu of Mediterranean dishes and yummy cocktails. There is also a plentiful wine list, ensuring everyone’s tastes are catered to.
Balans Soho Society
This restaurant and bar first started out as a sandwich bar, before developing a great reputation for its late opening hours – ideal for revellers seeking a bite to eat while staying at Chelsea hotels nearby. Since then, it has relocated to Kensington High Street and has a strong bohemian vibe which can be seen in everything from the décor to the menu, which includes a vast selection of impressive cocktails which take an eccentric approach to the art form.
Whether you’re in the mood for a cocktail infused with wild tea, ginger beer or elderflower – all tastes are accommodated. As an added style note, look out for the tree which can be found in the centre of the restaurant – a design feature which was championed by Simon Costin, who made his name creating the backdrop to Alexander McQueen’s fashion shows.
With a Latin American style, this cocktail restaurant and bar brings plenty of style to its creations, a preoccupation which can be also be seen in the décor of the restaurant itself.
The head chef has worked at many of the city’s top Michelin-starred restaurants, and designed a menu which includes tapas to accompany the signature Zuaya cocktails. Choose to sip them delicately at the bar, or opt for a table in the restaurant itself, located downstairs.
Zuaya is a great place to start an evening out seeing the sights of Chelsea and Kensington, but it can also provide a superb all-in-one area for foodies.
