A welcome addition to the charming Maiden Lane a few blocks south of Covent Garden Piazza, Jewel Covent Garden is indeed a jewel of a venue whose four different bars each offers a unique setting.
The Crystal Bar at the entrance level boasts a spectacular chandelier and cathedral ceilings fittingly adorned with murals of angels and romantic Greek mythology, as well as a black lacquered bar gleaming with spirits and a smattering of tables where patrons gather for relaxing chats with friends.
Up on the mezzanine is Blancha Bar, a white-themed space with sleek leather booths, mirrors, and modern crystal light fixtures, while the basement is home to the contrasting Bacchus Bar, a moody room with dark wood paneling, looming Roman-style sculptures, ornate ivy detailing, and a platform above the bar where the occasional group of dancers shows up to get the crowd moving.
Jewel’s most intimate space is the Long Bar, a candlelit area with little café tables perfect for a quiet rendezvous.
While the weekday crowd of flirtatious after-work professionals gives way to a slightly younger, in-the-mood-for-dancing weekend group, the result at Jewel is always the same – a friendly, welcoming atmosphere in a glamorous setting.
