Smith's Cocktail Bar: A New Place to Drink in Hammersmith

As we wind up our January detox we are on the hunt for new places to retox.

Smith's Cocktail Bar, tucked away in the basement of the Brook Green Hotel, is a Gatsby-esque speakeasy that reminds us of drinking dens in Paris and New York. Low lighting, exposed brick walls, lots of velvet and privacy-curtained booths will bring some old school glamour to a night out.

Start with some food like sharing plates of pulled pork rilette, crisp confit maple duck wings or a cheese and ale toasty. On the drinks menu are both classic and contemporary options, so expect anything from a straightforward Bloody Mary, dirty Martini or mojito to a candy-topped cocktail like the vodka-based Sherbet Fountain served with a liquorice straw, or Tall Dark and Handsome - a sherry based cocktail with Belgian chocolate pellets.

Smith's, 170 Shepherd’s Bush Rd., W6 7PB; 0207 371 1361

  1. This is now my favourite cocktail bar. Great location, friendly service, perfect after work or when the pubs have shut! Not tried the food yet but the cocktails are excellent.
