The Mahogany Bar
‘Like a members’ bar minus the pretension’
Bar Chick for the Evening standard
"A good place to impress friends with your knowledge of London’s nightlife... Part museum, part theatre, part bar, it’s a must!”
The Mahogany Bar was built around 1725, we believe as a public house, trading under many names over the years including The Albion Saloon and The Prince of Denmark. In 1828 it was luxuriously and elaborately refurbished with a magnificent mahogany bar and fittings which was unprecedented for a pub interior at that time and earned the nick-name that is still used today. Frequented by the sailing community, the bar's fame spread to every port across the globe and it was even claimed that visiting sailors may not have heard of St Paul's Cathedral but they knew exactly where to find The Mahogany Bar. Sadly, the famous fixtures and fittings of this remarkable bar have been stripped away over the years but the atmosphere lingers on.
The Mahogany Bar is now home to a series of free events ranging from live music to comedy nights or music hall sing-alongs.
If you would like to perform in the bar, please contact Chris, our bar and events manager at the following address : firstname.lastname@example.org
You will also find here a careful selection of beer wine and spirits, locally sourced when possible and at affordable prices.

The Green Room Cocktail BarTuesday to Saturday
6pm to 11pm
During The Great Gatsby we opened a hidden speakeasy upstairs. Due to
popular demand we’ve decided to keep it permanently open. In Wilton’s
old Green Room (where plenty of secret celebrity post show drinks have
taken place) you can reserve a table and treat yourself to our bespoke liquid concoctions.
Now open Tuesday to Saturday from 6pm.
We allow a limited number of table reservations available in the
cocktail bar, unfortunately due to our size we cannot
accommodate groups of more than 6. For larger groups, we may either reserve a table for you in the mezzanine for up to 10 people or you can hire one of our function rooms for which you can find information here.
To book your table, please send your booking request to
email@example.com with the time and date of your reservation, the size
of the table that you request and a contact number for confirmation purposes.
Our cocktail bar also hosts several tasting events with local brewers and interesting distillers.
Please note a change in our cocktail menu for the duration of the Great Gatsby which you may find here
Please note also that to avoid any disruptions with the pre-show we will not be taking any reservations from the 20th February until the 23rd of March.
