Officially 'The World's Best Bar' as voted for by Drinks International, Artesian is the deeply glamorous cocktail bar at The Langham hotel located at the top of Regent Street, in the heart of the West End.

The bar specialises in rum, with exclusive exquisite rum cocktails and a new range of disco cocktails revives some 80's favourites. 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.

Voted best bar in the world? I can see that.

You can't reserve a table, you have to chance it, but you want to chance it. Walk in through the langham, and put your name on the list to be seated, and when it's your turn, I promise, you will love it.

You're handed snacks of spiced nuts, well seasoned crisps and the carved wooden menus.

You'll want practically everything on the menu, unless...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

The Artesian Bar was voted the best bar in the world last year, and many years before that. And it's unbelievably easy to see why.

Tucked away inside the Langham Hotel, you can't make a reservation for a table, just have to risk it. We came in and were told they were all full but could put our name down. Only one opened right after that and we were sat.

Surprising, since this is a bar you...more
