Artesian is the deeply glamorous new cocktail bar at the Langham Hotel in London. Star designers at David Collins Studio have transformed the old bar with brilliant interiors that combine a whiff of exotic Orientalism, the romance of Victoriana and some very sexy, contemporary touches.

The bar specialises in rum, with exclusive new rum cocktails designed especially for the opening. Even the ice is special - through the very latest technology, Artesian’s ice is purer, colder and with a higher density, to make the ice last longer and the cocktails colder - and more potent.

Join us for a dominoes & daiquiris evening, on the first and last Monday of every month. Priced at £40 for two, to include two Daiquiris each, a sharing platter for two, the use of a domino set and a sheet of rules. From there, the evening could go anywhere…

Definitely 'one to impress'..but not your bank manager.

A super fun place to pop in for a surreal cocktail or two, and then move on.

Food OK, music was pretty average.

Reservations highly recommended.

One to keep up your sleeve.more

My girlfriend and I came to Artesian expecting to have one decadent, excellent evening. We came back the next night, breaking our vacation rule of "not the same place twice."

The surrealism-themed cocktail menu is a tour de force, playful and artistic but skillfully avoiding campy or gimmicky. Over the course of the two nights we tried all but a handful of the cocktails, and we had the...more

This has been voted best bar in the world so it was on my list to visit for quite some time.

It is not possible to make a reservation, but we strolled in for cocktails on a Sunday afternoon without a problem. Everyone there is friendly and can offer suggestions.

There is a great vibe and the atmosphere isn't stuffy at all. We ordered food as well as drinks and couldn't fault either. The...more

The prestigious organization Drinks International has voted Artesian the number one cocktail bar in the world for several years running, and it's not difficult to understand why. In truth, calling it a "cocktail bar" is a bit gauche, as this place is a lot more ambitious than that. It's more of a "cocktail gallery," as every cocktail carries a certain artistry and technique that few can...more

So they say that this is the best bar in the world.

I can see why.

The presentation of the food and cocktails here were amazing. The decor of the place itself is meh.

But shouldn't the effort be going more into what you're consuming? I mean, this place IS in a hotel, so they can do but so much with their decor without stepping out of code and accordance with the hotel.

So, it was...more
