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.

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 the 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
