Getting a cocktail in Mayfair is a ludicrous experience that everyone should try. It normally involves moving money around offshore accounts, selling off state infrastructure and liquidating your uninhabited Mayfair penthouse. Yes, it can get expensive on the final monopoly square.
Thankfully, there are still a few quality Mayfair cocktail bars that won't cost a small kingdom. The drinks are, as you'd expect, masterfully made, the aesthetics bring out the best of London and the prices, mostly, stay reasonable.
