Housebar, with its Art Deco setting reminiscent of the roaring Twenties, the seats are plush, the lighting is low and the cocktails are decadent.


Level 1, Hotel DeBrett

In keeping with the mid-century furnishings and Art Deco glam of the hotel it resides within, Housebar is an atmospheric hideaway intimate enough for a cosy date-night and lively enough for larger social gatherings. The drinks menu pays homage to the hotels historical past, with classically inspired cocktails mixed with precision and care.
