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.

Opening Times:
Wednesday: 5PM – 1AM
Thursday: 5PM – 1AM
Friday: 5PM – 1AM
Saturday: 3PM – 1AM
Sunday: Closed

 

Mezzanine Post Meal Sharpeners
