The Donovan Bar London

The Donovan Bar is a cocktail bar inside Brown’s Hotel in London. If we decide to talk in pedigree terms, this venue would be one of the most pure-blooded species in the world. The Donavan Bar is the place for those who genuinely know how to appreciate a well-crafted cocktail. It was created by Salvatore Calabrese, a leading name in the cocktail world. He has over 40 years of experience making drinks for celebrities, presidents, and royalty. Calabrese is also the former president of the United Kingdom Bartender’s Guild.

Today, at the Donovan Bar, customers can indulge in some of the original creations of Salvatore Calabrese. Blending timeless classics with his original combinations, the expert has created an exclusive menu that explores impeccable flavours and aromas.  

The Donovan Bar is intimate and sophisticated, with dim lighting shining over wooden floors and teal seats. In a 1960s photography-themed room, you can lounge on velvety booths by the windows and lose yourself in deep conversations and complex drinks. Photographs by Terence Donoval decorate the grey walls, and the L-shaped bar is stacked with bottles and labels of some of the best spirits and liquors in the world. 

Order the fresh and vibrant Wilde Nights, made with Black Bush Irish whiskey, green Chartreuse, homemade apple vermouth, a spray of absinthe, Acqua Bianca, and a splash of Champagne. To get close to the classics, go for the Breakfast Martini, where you’ll taste Bombay Sapphire gin, Cointreau, lemon juice, and orange marmalade. The menu features many unique and creative cocktails, as well as some well-known classics like Aviation, Negroni, and Brandy Alexander. You can also order from the extensive list of wines, champagne, and doses of whisky and other spirits.
