The Mezzanine

A world-class cocktail bar tucked away in The Stratford, a beautiful SOM-designed, 42-storey building from the team behind The Chiltern Firehouse and St Pancras Renaissance Hotel. The Mezzanine is The Stratford’s creative and musical hub, with their Open Deck Collective taking place every Thursday, live music every Friday, and DJs every Saturday night to play you into the early hours.

 

World Class Cocktail Bar

The menu features modern techniques applied to familiar classics inspired by the New York cocktail scene between 1930 and 1960. It is both extensive and unique, with four distinctive cocktail sections and a wide selection of whiskies including rare, small batch liquids from Japan, Scotland and America. There is also an extensive selection of premium spirits and Champagnes.

Saturday Nights

SATURDAY NIGHT TALES

Our resident DJs are making their way back to The Mezzanine for Saturday nights. East London’s finest and funkiest will be playing into the night from 9PM.

The Team

The engaging bar team is led by Marcello Cauda, who joined The Mezzanine as part of its opening team in 2019, progressing to the role of Bar Manager upon its reopening in May 2021, leading the team in the creation of its new cocktail list, The Authentic Life.

The cocktail menu is divided into Signature Cocktails; a permanent selection of re-imagined classics, Effervescent Cocktails; three lightly sparkling flavourful drinks, Euphoric Cocktails; a heady selection of pure indulgence and Revelatory Cocktails; a discovery of taste and innovation.
