K Bar Launches at The Kensington

There’s a new cocktail bar in town, and it’s right in the heart of Kensington.....



K Bar at The Kensington opened its super-stylish doors on Wednesday 10th February 2016. Now welcoming guests, passers-by and neighbourhood locals alike, K Bar offers the finest cocktails in a sophisticated yet relaxed setting.

Deep-grained oak panelling, intriguing bookcases, plush armchairs and atmospheric lighting set the tone inside. Inspired by its iconic Royal Borough location, K Bar features all the characteristics of a traditional gentleman’s club.



However, it’s not just the interiors you’ll be visiting K Bar for. Thanks to Bar Manager, Ben Manchester, an expert selection of premium wines, spirits and cocktails have all been meticulously cherry-picked. Ben brings 10 years of experience of mixology and bar experience to The Kensington. By fusing tradition and innovation, he has created a cocktail menu with every guest and every sip in mind.

Alongside an indulgent collection of classic cocktails, you can also opt for the more theatrical creations. The ‘Spiced Honey Mule’ is a standout cocktail with honey bourbon liqueur, lime, chili & ginger beer. If you’re more of a gin-lover, go for the ‘Rhub Awakening’ with Plymouth Gin, rhubarb liqueur, Aperol, lemon juice, pink peppercorn & star anise.



For those who want to abstain in style, a collection of non-alcoholic creations are also readily available. Featuring on the menu is Seedlip; a revolutionary non-alcoholic spirit that contains absolutely no alcohol or sugar. The ‘Seedlip Southside’ is a delicious blend of seedlip, lime juice, sugar syrup, mint, juniper and apricot bitters; a tasty delight for those off the wagon.

K Bar also has an appetizing selection of ‘bar bites’ to choose from, such as Iberico ham croquettes and crispy squid with Romanesco sauce or Red pepper hummus with feta and a freshly grilled flat bread.



An evening at K Bar promises a sophisticated taste sensation and being open seven days a week from 4pm to 11pm, it couldn’t be any easier enjoy a little indulgence at The Kensington’s dazzling new cocktail bar.
