The original Notting Hill BBB was one of the first true style bars in the 90's. This one is prettier and more kitsch in comparison; more the crazy gay brother than the poor cousin.

The basement bar is a fashionable destination - accessed by a chi-chi customer lift operated by a uniformed attendant - which hosts international DJs and live cabaret acts. There is a rooftop with a fantastic view of London, a member's area and an art space.

Popular cocktails here include the Pornstar Martini, a twist on the classic with vanilla and passion fruit.
