For lovers of fabulous drinks, food and live music, there is a wonderful place in the heart of Mayfair where you will be treated to delicious cocktails and jazz musicians on any night of the week – Dover Street Restaurant and Bar.

I went along for dinner and drinks last week. The cocktails were delicious and the dinner was superb- I especially enjoyed the scallops.  The band played gorgeous renditions of jazz classics and the whole place was buzzing.  This is worth a visit on more than one occasion.

This lively and popular venue has been entertaining diners for almost 30 years. It offers a French/ Mediterranean menu including scallops, sea bass and roast duck.  All of the food is locally sourced and last orders are at 2am for those late night diners.

Of course, the music is the main draw and with a nightly programme including an array of talented jazz musicians, the atmosphere is divine.  The dance floor fills up quickly and the place is transformed into a glamorous bar of days gone by.

The Dover Street Monday Night Sessions have proved immensely popular and with free entry before 10pm, it is a wonderful way to start the week. Check out last week’s Monday Night Session below:

    There was a relaxed and friendly atmosphere, and the venue oozed old-school glamour (helped by the black and white images of soul divas that surrounded us, as well as the jazz trio who played while we dined). The food was really tasty – I had a generous portion of king prawns, scallops and crab claws for mains, in the most delicious of sauces. I shall certainly be returning to this Mayfair treasure soon.

    Delicious cocktails – definitely a good spot to know if you’re in the area and fancy a late night drink.

    Really amazing food (delicious tomato mozzarella starter and sea bass on a vegetable bed) and great music. And the Big Band got the crowds to the dance floor. Will definitely return for some more…

  4. It looks great, but I imagine very pricey given the location?
