Vinyl & Cocktail Bar at Boisdale of Mayfair With The Best Sound In The World

Bois­dale of May­fair London’s very first vinyl and cock­tail bar is set to impress! With Jools Hol­land as patron of music and being renowned for host­ing some of London’s finest musi­cians, Bois­dale have installed the best sound in the world from Devialet Phan­tom, to pro­duce the ulti­mate vinyl and cock­tail experience. 

Set in the low­er lev­el of Bois­dale of May­fair amidst the rich mahogany walls, all the album cov­ers are framed on the wall and you can sim­ply point at an album and ask to have it placed on the turn table! Elis­a­beth Rutt Bois­dale of May­fair Gen­er­al Man­ag­er, who with Bois­dale founder Ranald Mac­don­ald, has devel­oped this nov­el record con­cept describes it as, Like liv­ing in a giant juke box with the dis­tinct advan­tage of hav­ing a cock­tail bar inside!” The fab­u­lous vinyl, most­ly Ranald’s per­son­al col­lec­tion, spans over six decades with orig­i­nal LPs from the gold­en age of jazz and rock’n’roll through to the mag­i­cal eclec­ti­cism and exper­i­men­ta­tion of the 1960s and 1970s. 

The cock­tail list is being curat­ed by the soon to be leg­endary mixol­o­gists, Alex and Eli­is, both putting their pas­sion for music and cock­tail into cre­at­ing a very spe­cial expe­ri­ence. The cock­tail menu will include dai­ly chang­ing spe­cials with a com­bi­na­tion of bright and unusu­al inno­va­tions and fas­ci­nat­ing retro research, includ­ing dis­cov­er­ing what all the artists on the wall drank if they were into cock­tails, from John Lennon and Fats Waller to Elvis Pres­ley and Bil­ly Holliday. 

Man can­not live by booze and sound alone so for sub­stan­tial graz­ing there is a great and var­ied British tapas menu avail­able and a full A La carte menu from Bois­dale of May­fair restau­rant upstairs if desired. 

With music at the core, Bois­dale are proud to announce The Vinyl & Cock­tail Bar will be pow­ered by incred­i­ble Devialet Phan­tom speak­ers. They believe Phan­tom deliv­ers the truest rep­re­sen­ta­tion of music and offers an incred­i­ble emo­tion­al expe­ri­ence, which will pow­er cre­ative and inno­v­a­tive sen­so­ry expe­ri­ences with­in the new bar.
