The Resting Room

A timeless cocktail bar nestled off the hustle & bustle of Portobello Road, serving an eclectic range of spirits created on-site and served fresh off our 400L copper pot still, King Henry, by master distiller Jake Burger and his elite team of gin instructors. As proud purveyors of London spirit, The Resting Room will not only serve unique gin blends, we also distill other spirits and fanciful flavours, including one of our favourites & the appropriately named Characterful Vodka, which contains… well that would be telling wouldn’t it.


Barrel-aged Spirits

Alongside the intriguing list of hand-blended spirits available, patrons can also enjoy a thoughtfully-considered selection of internationally-renowned spirits that we’ve sourced from friends around the world and aged ourselves in re-coopered barrels suspended above the bar, from which they will be directly served. The most exciting thing of all these exciting things? Due to the spirit’s on-going aging process within the barrel, no two drinks will be the same (almost). Topped off with an impressive & provocative wine list - we’re pretty proud of our small neighbourhood bar.

Food

Whilst a heady cocktail menu & relaxed yet esoteric surroundings are our metaphorical bread & butter, our physical bread and butter does not let the side down. A menu of quintessential British dishes all created with local ingredients, with a selection of mouth-watering small plates and a charred and roast section, all cooked in our Josper oven.
