“The hotel bar which some say concocts one of the world’s best Martinis”
New York Times

Drinks at DUKES Bar is something of an occasion. The legendary bar is internationally renowned for its famous martinis and personalised cocktails. Frequented by James Bond author Ian Fleming, the bar is said to be the inspiration for the classic line, 'shaken, not stirred'.

So whether you’re relaxing after a meeting or getting together with friends for special drinks, the intimate and timeless surroundings, coupled with the bartender’s knowledge, make it an unforgettable experience. Afterwards, you can retire to the Cognac and Cigar Garden.

One of Alessandro Palazzi’s most unique creations is the White Truffle Martini. The secret of this Martini is the three weeks infusion made with truffles from Alba, Italy, and potato vodka, the perfect combination of two ingredients coming from the earth. The Martini is served with DUKES dry Vermouth, Chase English potato vodka, and to finish, an olive stuffed with cheese marinated in homemade truffle vodka. A unique recipe for a unique Martini.
