The Bassoon bar has a musically inspired theme with a seven meter long piano and original Jazz age paintings on its walls. The piano also doubles up as the bar. Dimly lit, this bar has a relaxed and intimate atmosphere. The lavish art-deco décor is by David Collins Studio.

We visited this lounge in London for a cocktail after a beautiful dinner at Massimo. A nice selection of champagnes, cocktails and wines were available. But the extensive cocktail list is the real attraction at Bassoon. Colonial inspired drinks like the Victorian Moijto, Pimm's Cup and English Tea Punch were some of the interesting items on the menu. Some of the popular cocktails here are the Bassoon Manhattan and the Bubblegum Martini.

Instead of bar snacks, Bassoon serves “Food Cocktails”. These are served as small portions in miniature Victorian cocktail glasses. Sea scallops with yuzu fruit lemon dressing; dressed Devon crab with mayonnaise and lemon; Bloody Mary hand-picked Swale oyster and foie gras on toast are some of the popular food cocktails. A couple of sweets and a range of Damian Allsop’s chocolates are also on offer.

Our cocktails were served in brass tankards and over-sized glass tea cups, which added to this amazing bar’s charm. Service at this lounge in London was over the top. We had a great time here.

Overall, Bassoon is a gorgeous bar that serves good drinks. Though the prices were high, it was definitely worth it for the wonderful atmosphere and the great service. This lounge in London is perfect for after work or pre-dinner drinks. Our rating for Bassoon is Fantastic Bombastic.
