The Portobello Star is an award winning cocktail bar on Portobello Road in Notting Hill that is well worth a visit. Cosy décor and a relaxed atmosphere it's the perfect place to chill out with a cocktail and one of their famous home made chocolate brownies.
With a recently updated cocktail menu, the Portobello Star offers a wide range of unique and classic drinks created by award winning mixologist, Jake Burger.
If you have a sweet tooth, like me, try The Guinness Punch - a Caribbean drink made with white rum, Guinness Stout, condensed milk, vanilla, all spice, cocoa and cinnamon, served up in a pewter tankard.
Rock the Kasbah is one of Jake's own creations - a cocktail which was created for the Eva Herzegovia designed bar at the Annual Character & Cocktails fundraising event, in aid of the Elton John AIDS Foundation. Made up with vodka, lemon juice, mint tea syrup, orange flower water and egg white - £1.00 from each sale goes to the Elton John AIDS Foundation.
Every drink is made carefully to perfection making your visit feel even more special. If you fancy splashing out, Jake can whip up a Brandy Crusta which will set you back £100. A cocktail made to the original recipe by Harry Johnson in 1882 that includes one of the last surviving Bokers Bitters in the world. "The only bar in the world where you can enjoy such a treat".
If cocktails aren't to your taste the Portobello Star has a wide range of beers and wines. Also if a bit peckish try their home-made comfort food. The chocolate brownies are a must!
