Mews of Mayfair - Mutiny in Mayfair
Tucked behind New Bond Street in the rather special Lancashire Court, Mews of Mayfair is the perfect hideaway. If you’re lucky enough to find a pavement table that is free and if the weather is good enough, grab it.
It could be a bit of a squash as you almost touch shoulders with the guests from the opposite restaurant but it is the perfect spot for people watching.
Mews is split into 6 venues: The Art Gallery; The Dining Room; The Chef’s Dining Room; Le Cave; The Lounge; and The Cocktail Bar.
The Cocktail Bar is part grand chateau, part hunting lodge. It has plush oversized furniture, objets d’art, hunting trophies and low chandeliers. Drinks are ordered perching on the high leather bar stools or by friendly table service. On the extensive drinks list, my favourite is the rum and fresh pineapple cocktail called Mutiny Mews. It’s clean and tropical, with a good kick to it. They are terribly moreish especially when accompanied with a dainty takeaway box of wasabi peas and a scattering of queen olives.
The basement lounge bar is a perfect place to continue your evening when the cocktail bar closes at 11pm. Cool and bijou, yet unpretentious, there is no guest list. The kooky decor details from upstairs continue with the DJ panel hidden in a grand piano. The highlight of this venue however, is the private cave-like bunkers where you can huddle, schmooze or flirt to your heart’s content; but still feel the buzz of bar.
I have yet to try the masculine Le Cave wine and cigar shop as well as the main or private dining rooms. But if the delicious canapés are anything to go by, these will be a treat to look forward to.

The Audley is a classic late Victorian pub at the junction of Mount Street and South Audley Street. Serving excellent food and drinks at very reasonable prices, it is no wonder that it is probably the best known and most popular pub in the Mayfair area. The Staff are friendly and helpful. They certainly did a great job when surprised by an unannounced visit by Michelle Obama. There is seating outside, with heaters, when needed.

The original London wine bar, Fino’s Wine Cellar opened in 1971, and quickly established itself as Mayfair’s favorite watering hole. On first visiting Fino’s you may wish you brought a compass to navigate the warren of passageways leading to secret alcoves and private dining rooms. A popular haunt for local businesses, the friendly atmosphere in the cosy bar is maintained by loyal customers from nearby and by regularly returning patrons from all over the world.
