Reviews of The 40 Elephants cocktail bar in Trafalgar Square

Elegant bar inspired by a powerful female group. The bar payed respect to the history by allocating the first two pages of the menu to the interesting story. The interior design also followed the theme, which I appreciated. I liked the design and furniture. The service was ok. We thought we’d get some nibbles (nuts/ olives/ or something) along with the drinks but that wasn’t the case. The drinks were quite good.

Very elegant place. A little expensive but worth it. I did not eat just wine. Even thr toilets are so fancy.

Loved it! They even had a dry january menu for sophisticated mocktails. I loved the immersion of the experience. We ordered small bites. Super flavorful!

Tucked away just off Whitehall, this is a real gem of a bar. Very stylish decor, sutle lighting with a great story to match the name. If you're stepping out for the night, then this is the perfect place to suggest you meet - of course, you'll tell them all it's your regular haunt 😄. Service is 1st rate and friendly, very tasty and original bar menu with cocktails and beers to rave about. Go on, get yourself down there, sit back and enjoy!
