our award-winning bar


Merchant House of Bow Lane

Merchant House of Bow Lane is where the hospitality industry choose to drink – and, of course, you are very welcome too

With one of the largest spirit collections in the world, we are housed in a hidden bar in the historical heart of London – The City.

Our award-winning cocktails explore the wonderful world of flavourful spirits, interesting producers, fine and rare bottlings – with each one telling some, small part of the Empire story. Come and explore.


Over 1,000 bottles in 3 bars at 1 location

For us each bottle tells a story. We love where the history of alcoholic beverages meets the science behind good quality production techniques.

Our rare collection of spirits focusses on the mercantile history of gin and rum and we have fused this collection with our unique 600 bottle collection of whiskies focussing on quality production and unique flavours from around the world.

We hope you will come and enjoy a unique and rare offering with us and let our staff who are industry renowned experts, guide you through a plethora of flavours and stories.
