Whenever a new bar opens in town, you usually see it promoted everywhere. Instagram, Twitter, blogs…but Royal Institution has, somehow, flown under the radar. What was once a private member’s bar, is now open to the public and behind the pillar-fronted entrance, lies a very bouji bar indeed.
Head through the front doors and you’re greeted with a large welcoming hallway. Filled with floor to ceiling painted artwork on the walls, a very art deco theme and large floral displays along the centre console table, itsy certainly different.
Royal Institution is home to an on-site off license, where you can purchase your liquor of choice to take home, a beautifully decorated function room and then the main bar.
Prints hang from every wall of images taken from the book, American Birds of Paradise and the decor is so luxe and opulent, you defo get speakeasy vibes from the place.
What used to be a private member’s bar, reopened in March before Lockdown and is now back open to all. With gin and whisky tasting evenings on the cards for months to come, I can’t wait to come back and sample more of the cocktail menu.
