The Mahogany Bar
‘... one of the nicest places in London to have a drink.’
"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 is the oldest part of Wilton’s, built around 1725 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.
Food & Drink
The Mahogany Bar serves a carefully selected range of beer, wine and spirits, locally sourced where possible. Cocktails are available Monday - Saturday from 6pm, upstairs in the Green Room Cocktail Bar
Due to repairs beginning in May, there will be no food served at Wilton's after Easter (20th April).
Until then there’s no reason to go hungry as we’ve got a selection of tasty fare such as toasted sandwiches, mini quiches, pastries, muffins and soup available for lunch.
