157-159 Notting Hill Gate, London W11 3LF
When we visited Cottons, we were lucky enough to be invited along to a private view evening celebrating the talents and collection of artist Kellie Every accompanied by an evening of cocktails, chat and original paintings for sale (upon request).
This branch of Cottons is a new addition in comparison to the original, which we believe opened in Camden over 30 years ago. This relaxed, brightly coloured cocktail bar recreates the sounds and vibes of a true Caribbean Rum bar, offering a selection of authentic West Indian cooking and delicious exotic drinks to boot.
Look out for the sky-blue exterior and you will know you have arrived at Cottons Notting Hill. Enjoy a cool rum cocktail (or two) at the cosy cocktail bar area (offering one of the UK’s largest collection of rums) or dine in one of their two light, bright and open dining rooms featuring tropical murals and birds, waterfalls and a cute little Bajan-shuttered chattel house.
The menu serves all the usual tasty (and spicy) West Indian fayre such as ackee and saltfish, jerk pork and barbecued baby ribs to name but a few and all accompanied by sweet soulful melodies to help all of these tasty treats along.
