Somewhere to escape the everyday, Fitz’s is named after Charles Fitzroy Doll, the architect of The Principal London. The bar is the hotel’s equal in terms of flamboyant detail, featuring original stained glass windows, as well as works from Milan-born contemporary artist 2501.
Our cocktails pay tribute to the free spirits of Bloomsbury’s past and present – from ‘Spy Princess’ Noor Inayat Khan, to physicist Leo Szilárd. The menu also incorporates illustrations by the renowned Jazz-age artist, John Held Jr, which originally appeared in magazines such as Life, Vanity Fair and The New Yorker.
Head of Bars, Sean Fennelly, hails from Soho institution Milk & Honey. With a passion for Scotch and Armagnac, he’s handpicked a team from some of London’s best bars and has spent a year developing Fitz’s cocktail list.
Carey Hanlon, our Head Bartender, comes to Fitz’s via industry hotspot, Callooh Callay. Take a seat at the bar and ask her for a Martini – a drink for all seasons, it has as many variations as we have gins.
Carey’s right-hand man is Assistant Head Bartender, Patrick Kelleher, also from Callooh Callay. A Sweet Manhattan’s his speciality – simple, yet effective, it’s a classic that was invented around the same time The Principal London was completed.
