Jazz It Up At The Bloomsbury Hotel

If your taste in great jazz music is matched by an amazing taste in dining and cocktails, then head for dinner at Landseer Restaurant and Bar at The Bloomsbury Hotel on one of its Jazz and Swing evenings – an experience you will totally enjoy.

2014-05-15 19.15.14Situated on Great Russell St in the heart of Bloomsbury, where the vibrant West End meets the City, the hotel is represents London perfectly well – beautifully traditional with the excise touch of modern British luxury and vibrant lifestyle. Kick off your Jazz and Swing experience with a few cocktails by Landseer bar head barman – Joel Miguel. As you might be hit by decision making anxiety when you see the mouthwatering cocktail list, speak to Joel and share your taste references – he will be happy to make recommendations or even mix up a perfect cocktail specifically for you! 

Continue the evening with the delicious food – a glass of Champagne and sharing platter for two is already included within the ticket. Select between a Mediterranean platter (with Mediterranean cured meat ‘Lomo, Chorizo, Salami, Smoked ham, and super salads, dips and herbs bread) or Vegetarian platter (with hummus, sweet ricotta-stuffed peppers, tortilla, tomato and olive flat brad, spinach and pimento falafel).

2014-05-15 22.01.08For those hungry for more – the a la carte menu provides a perfect selection of dishes from ‘British cuisine with a modern twist’. Having ordered Mediterranean Chopped Salad and the Angus Sirloin, I have been happy with my choice though couldn’t help but have a little bit of food envy – have a look at the picture on the right and you will understand why! As Landseer only uses season and fresh ingredients from local suppliers and employs a team of very talented & creative chefs, you are guaranteed to have a satisfying gourmet experience.

Speaking about the experience, the Jazz and Swing evening will feed your soul, too – with live jazz performances by talented musicians. The evening I had pleasure to attend hosted the gorgeous Vimala Rowe and Harry Sankey and Howard Alden, one of the best jazz guitarists of his generation.  Being one of London’s top female vocalists, Vimala performed at Ronnie Scotts, London Jazz Festival and The Royal Albert Hall to name a few. Her musical influences include jazz, soul and an eclectic mix of world music. Vimala’s incredible magical tender voice will make your heart sing

The Jazz and Swing are taking place once a month – so book your visit in advance to enjoy the performance and amazing food and cocktails.
