A creative space with outstanding cocktails from a constantly evolving list created by our expert bartenders. Of course, if you fancy a perfectly made martini or a classic Negroni, then our experienced team are happy to mix your favourite drink: The Shenkman Bar is for cocktail lovers, whatever your preferred style.
The Shenkman Bar opens up onto the garden, a lush oasis designed by renowned landscaper Tom Stuart Smith — a hidden gem to transport you away from the crowds of Piccadilly to beautiful natural surroundings.

The Sir Hugh Casson Room & Belle Shenkman Lounge: Beautifully refurbished, the Sir Hugh Casson Room is the heart and soul of the Royal Academy for Friends. The Belle Shenkman Lounge is a more intimate space in Keeper’s House, a good spot to kick back and unwind.

“In my 25 years in the business, I have rarely felt so excited about a project. It is a privilege to work with the Royal Academy, its Artists, and Friends to create a venue as thrillingly diverse as Keeper’s House. I am pleased that the Royal Academy have embraced our modern British approach to the menus and drinks in the new Restaurant, Bar and private rooms.” – Oliver Peyton
