The Gilbert Scott

Marcus Wareing launches George’s Bar

Following the redesign of the bar, in conjunction with David Collins Studio, on Wednesday, 14th March, Marcus Wareing launches George’s Bar, a further tribute to the building’s original architect, Sir George Gilbert Scott.


George’s Bar sees Marcus Wareing Restaurants’ collective culinary experiences applied to drinks making in show stopping 19th century surroundings. A cocktail bar from one of Britain’s top chefs, this is a team who understands ingredients and flavour.

Marcus Wareing and Bar Manager, Dav Eames, are re-establishing one of London’s iconic bars to create an environment which is intimate, welcoming and creative, and where the drinks have been devised to the focused precision expected from these two doyens of the culinary and drinks worlds, respectively.

The carefully curated drinks list sees each cocktail inspired by the unique flavour combinations Dav experiences daily, from the kitchen beneath him, sit alongside cuvées from Champagne’s oldest wine house, Gosset. The house’s selection of wines from The Gilbert Scott, selected craft beers, and a number of homemade tonic infusions, accompany the other spirit offerings.

Each cocktail tells a story, and each story has a history.   These will be showcased throughout the year as a highlighted cocktail of the month.


George’s Bar is a place for fun and frivolity; a place to enjoy world-class cocktails within the grand surrounds of one of London’s most iconic, 19th century venues.  Open 7 days a week, in the heart of King’s Cross St Pancras, come down to enjoy a #DrinkWithGeorge
