Purl first opened it's doors in May 2010.

The word purl refers to an old English drink consisting of warm ale, gin, wormwood and spices.

The aim of the bar was to bring classic cocktails back to the forefront of London's drinking scene, whilst adding new flare and creativity to forgotten libations. Purl soon became recognised for its innovative approach to mixed drinks, that utilised culinary techniques to aid in the story of each and every cocktail on its list.

Today, we continue to imagine drinks that satisfy on a multi-sensory level, using aroma, fogs, airs, foams, food, bespoke serviceware and liquid nitrogen to bring the drink to life and transport the guest to another place or time.

We like people to book tables with us to avoid dissapointment on the door. We have a number of booths in under-the-road arches that are perfect for parties of eight or more.

We tend to play contemporary music with a lean towards swing/jazz/blues. We don't do dj's.

In addition to our rather tasty cocktail selection we serve three flavours of wine - red, white and pink. We also have a nice selection of craft beers and a few bites to eat.

We're situated on Blandford Street, which runs between Baker Street and Marylebone High Street.

Sadly, our excellent location also means we are somewhat restricted with our alcohol license, granting us opening times from 5pm until 11.30pm Monday to Thursday and 12am on Friday and Saturday.

  • The only thing missing was some live music, Otherwise, everything about it was quirky and atmospheric with friendly, helpful staff. My friend and I had a great time. Loved the cocktails.
  • Amazing underground speakeasy cocktail bar. Booking needed but totally worth it. Love how everyone has a seat and it's table service
