New Bar and Private Dining Room

In November 2009, Gary Rhodes launched a new bar and private dining room at Rhodes W1.
The Rhodes Patrón Bar is his "lighter eating Brasserie" and has been refurbished with a funky, airy look to form the dramatic centerpiece of the Rhodes W1 Brasserie. With its upbeat tempo and seductive ambience the bar is a perfect place to get you in the mood for a great evening out. Before sitting down for dinner, guests could indulge in cocktails such as the signature 'Patrón W1' which includes Patrón Silver, Patrón Citronge Orange Liqueur and Gran Marnier – Cuvee du Centenaire and Pomegranate juice.
The house champagne is Lanson and there is also a wide selection of wines. Bottled and draft beers include Grolsch Blonde and Guinness, plus non-alcoholic alternatives too.
The modern European cuisine in the Brasserie includes mains such as '10oz Scotch dry rib eye steak', 'Buttered salmon with chorizo risotto and paella garnish' and 'Half a grilled lobster with a classic Caesar salad', and desserts feature a 'Hot chocolate soufflé' and a 'Sticky toffee pudding'.
Private Dining Room
The Rhodes W1 Private Dining Room offers menus selected either from the Michelin star fine dining Rhodes W1 or from Rhodes W1 Brasserie. Spotted Dick
with custard is a firm favorite. The Rhodes W1 Private Dining Room has an art deco feel and is suitable for up to 40 guests. Highlights from the menu include: 'Beetroot cured salmon gravlax crème fraiche, horseradish and salad of baby beets' for starters, 'Pan fried black bream confit tomato, langoustine, samphire and shellfish bisque' for mains, and finish off with 'Carpaccio of pineapple, coconut sorbet and meringue'.
