The most famous Martini cocktail drinker in the world is Mr 007 himself, preferring his drink “shaken, not stirred”. Dirty Martini, a cocktail bar dedicated to producing James Bond’s favourite tipple in many variations, is situated in the centre of Covent Garden’s arts and cultural district, with the Royal Opera House less than 200 yards away. Its impressive design imitates New York-style bars that attract a trendy and professional clientele. Upstairs is open for daytime drinks, lunches and nibbles whilst downstairs appears to be one of Covent Garden’s most popular, fashionable hangouts. The dimmed lighting, a large mirror and lavish chandeliers contribute to creating a stylish, urban yet modern feel.
Dirty Martini’s cocktails will rarely let you down. A thorough and well thought-out range of cocktails are available, designed by experienced mixologists who are passionate about creating interesting and
imaginative cocktails. The Irish Sour contains Jameson’s Irish whiskey shaken with lemon juice, syrup de gomme, a dash of Angostura Bitters and egg white for a sharp flavour. Another concoction is the signature Dirty Martini cocktail. This consists of Ketel One vodka or Plymouth gin, served with drops of Noilly Prat, fresh thyme and pressed Kalamata olives. For the health-conscience cocktail drinker, Dirty Martini innovated an exceptional solution to enjoying cocktails guilt free, serving fruity delights that are under 100 calories a cocktail.
Every Wednesday evening cocktail lovers are given the opportunity to design their own cocktail to enjoy. The management’s ambition and energy to consistently explore new and exciting cocktail creations and methods adds to the lively and uplifting atmosphere at Dirty Martini. The pleasant nature of the staff, eager to entertain customers with tricks adds value and a personal touch to your cocktail experience.
All in all - one of London's best cocktail venues... definitely a must!
