Bars & Terraces

The Negroni Bar

The Negroni was born in 1919 at the Caffe Casoni in Florence. Count Camillo Negroni asked his friend and bartender, Forsco Scarselli, to fortify his favourite cocktail – the Americano – by replacing the soda water with gin. Costantino Armocida, Boisdale’s legendary mixologist, has taken this iconic cocktail artform to another level by curating different premium heritage spirits, vermouths and bitters to create the world’s most expressive range of Negronis.

The Negroni Bar is in the style of a tra­di­tion­al pub bar, and offers both lighter bar food and a full à la carte menu. The Negroni Bar is suit­able for pri­vate lunch or din­ner par­ties for up to 26 guests, which can be accom­mo­dat­ed on one table, or 35 for drinks par­ties (more if tak­en with The Court­yard Gar­den). It can be hired for pri­vate func­tions on Mon­days and Tues­days sub­ject to avail­abil­i­ty. Please dis­cuss your require­ments with the Events Man­ag­er (reservations@​boisdale.​co.​uk).

The Macdonald Bar

The most eclec­tic of Bois­dale rooms, the Mac­don­ald Bar is dec­o­rat­ed in the style of a gen­tle­man’s club but with the ambi­ence of a clas­sic ​‘40s jazz bar and restau­rant. The Mac­don­ald bar is not gen­er­al­ly avail­able for pri­vate func­tions dur­ing the week but on Sat­ur­day after­noons and Sun­days it is avail­able for up to 60 guests to dine (in con­junc­tion with the Court­yard Gar­den 80) or up to 100 guests for a drinks reception.

The Courtyard Garden

The Court­yard Gar­den is plant­ed with scent­ed blooms all year round and offers a per­fect loca­tion for alfres­co din­ing in the sum­mer and, being cen­tral­ly heat­ed, for can­dlelit din­ners in win­ter. It is avail­able for pri­vate lunch and din­ner par­ties and can accom­mo­date up to of 14 guests on one table or 20 guests on two tables. The Court­yard Gar­den pro­vides a degree of pri­va­cy with­out being com­plete­ly cut off from the atmos­phere of the main restau­rant and bar. It is also suit­able for drinks par­ties when hired in con­junc­tion with the Back Bar.

The Belgravia Cigar Terrace

The Cig­ar Ter­race in keep­ing with the restau­ran­t’s tra­di­tion­al and com­fort­able style is locat­ed above The Mac­don­ald Bar, clad in Bois­dale's trade­mark tar­tan and fur­nished with sofas, arm­chairs, cush­ions and rugs. In win­ter months out­door heaters and an awning keep cold and rain at bay and guests vis­it­ing the ter­race are offered warm cash­mere blan­kets in Bois­dale liv­ery brought over espe­cial­ly from Scot­land. The Cig­ar Ter­race can accom­mo­date up to 40 guests.
