Hidden away in the basement of the Brook Green Hotel in Hammersmith is the contemporary cocktail bar Smith’s. We recently paid a visit and enjoyed a relaxed atmosphere, friendly and efficient service and of course, stunning cocktails. The bar décor was casually creative with bare bricks, simple artwork and toilet doors labelled with lips for girls and a moustache for the boys; no confusion there then! Another plus was the comfy booths which we discovered are bookable online – perfect for spontaneous group nights out.

Smith’s offers a very extensive and exciting cocktail list. We started off with the Elderflower and Ginger Martini – striking flavours – and then made room for the giant sharing cocktail Gustav Holst – three rums plus bitters & fruit syrups, which came accompanied by a flaming tequila-filled lime. Smith’s also presents four food offerings on sharing platters; fish, cheese, vegetable and meat – including mouth-watering Pulled pork, Chorizo skewers and Crispy maple duck wings. Mmm. This Hammersmith bar definitely knows how to tempt us back!
