NEW MUSICAL-INSPIRED COCKTAIL MENU AT SCARFES BAR

The eagerly awaited new cocktail menu from Scarfes Bar has landed - a journey through the great musical genres, inspired by the iconic caricatures of Gerald Scarfe, presented in the form of an interactive stage menu. We take a peek behind the curtain at this seriously impressive and tasty band of drinks...

The new menu from Holborn hotel bar favourite, Scarfes Bar, is definitely something of a showstopper. A full team effort and the first from their new, super friendly Head Bartender, Yann Bouvignies, as well as the lovely Bars Director, Martin Siska. It's a celebration of musical genres spanning the past 100 years, with eighteen distinguished drinks paying homage to nine musical styles with one iconic musician chosen for each... from the nation's favourite, Spice Girls for pop to the ultimate funkster, Prince and more.

For each of the musical genres and its legendary musician, a duet of contrasting drinks have been created to resemble two key moments in their individual careers, think Red Hot Chili Peppers before and after Californication. Then each drink has been allocated a melodious flavour profile, ranging from the light and refreshing Piano, to the medium and characterful Mezzo Forte to the full bodied Fortissimo, combining in a full orchestra of high, soft, deep and low flavour notes across the list.

The menu itself is a 3D piece of art - a never seen before collection of artwork by the bar's namesake, Gerald Scarfe - each musician meticulously drawn in his famous style and presented on a stage that you move to show the different artists in situ.
