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.

Under the direction of Marcello Cauda, The Mezzanine has been selected in the Regional top 10 Honourees for the 2022 Tails Spirited cocktail awards for Best Hotel Bar – Europe.

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.

 

 

Thursday Open Deck Collective

This is the night for our creative community, the cocktail connoisseurs, music lovers, and vinyl fanatics. With our full DJ set up and turntables taking centre stage, sign up to take your turn to spin on the open decks. Any level of experience is welcomed, whether you are testing out a new set, a budding DJ, or want to share your vinyl collection. All the while our Mezzanine team will be experimenting their new cocktail creations. Every Thursday 5PM- 1AM.

LIVE FRIDAYS

Friday nights are for live music sessions in The Mezzanine. Every week we’ll be bringing some toe-tapping and dance worthy curations to Stratford. Live music will be back every Friday from 9:30PM.

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.
