One part vintage bar, equal measures of hazy apothecary and fastidious pharmacy, the Marylebone offers your friends have a night out that’s made to order. Stride across the creaking floorboards to the bar, where a forest of frosted bottles and skinny flasks beckons you to lean in for a closer look. They’re filled with artisanal, house-made infusions of herbs, flowers, berries, and fruits, and they’ll form the base of some of the most amazing cocktails you’ll ever taste. Browse the cocktail menu or ask the bartender for a suggestion. Perhaps you’ll appreciate a tropical sailor, with spiced rum and pineapple, or maybe you’d prefer a pear julep, an updated version of the southern classic. Whatever you order, it’ll be made from top-shelf spirits and garden-fresh ingredients, and served in a style-appropriate glass. Drinks in hand, guide your friends over to a window-side table, shuffling your mismatched glasses to find the perfect orientation, and watch the bartenders in action on other orders. It’s quite a spectacle as they shake, twist, muddle and spritz, with each drink more intriguing than the last. When it’s time for another round, experiment with something different—unless you’ve already found your liquid soulmate, that is. At a bar with as many creative cocktail options as this one, playing the field seems only natural.
