The only late lounge and cocktail bar in W1


Established on the simple concept of quality products and services; situated opposite Selfridges, amidst the hustle and bustle of Oxford Street, Après provides a perfect boutique après ski lodge, yet hidden away from the mania of W1.

With a list of London’s hottest signature cocktails and special blends, Après and its team pride themselves of being able to make any drink from anywhere in the world, providing the ideal sanctuary for the global nomad to feel at home.

The team has a combined experience of over 30 years in the leisure industry, working at top end venues such as: Sketch, Lounge Lover, Dolce and Cocoon to mention but a few.


The philosophy of ‘whatever, whenever’ is something that echoes through the Après family. Thus, whether there’s a signature cocktail with fresh produce at 5pm or smoked salmon and scrambled eggs at 3am – we are here to provide. Whatever your vice is: white chocolate watermelon martinis on our terrace or a bottle of chilled Prosecco with our signature nibbles while watching a movie in our play room – Après can offer it all.


With four different parts to the venue, Après offers something to everyone:

Cocktail Bar

The Cocktail Bar on the ground floor is the perfect place for post shopping/ after work drinks and has a capacity for up to 70 people.
