The Hawksmoor (Spitalfields)

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.
Alessandro Palazzi has created Fleming 89, a new martini which celebrates the link between DUKES Bar and James Bond. Created in partnership with London-based perfumery Floris, whose “89” Eau de Cologne was famously worn by James Bond, the flavour and smoothness of the martini are a sophisticated complement to the aroma of this quintessentially English gentleman’s fragrance. Treat yourself to the DUKES martini experience on your next visit.
