The beverage offering at each of The Twenty Two’s four bars will showcase the brand’s own spirits, creative cocktails and imaginative low-ABV alternatives to suit all tastes.

This visionary project is the realization of hospitality entrepreneur, hotelier and tech investor Navid Mirtorabi, whose current portfolio includes Humble (Founder), Lunaz Design – Classic Electrical Cars (Co-Founder), Little Emperors (Investor), as well as various other hospitality projects: “We want to redefine the traditional Mayfair hotel and club by bringing a new community to this iconic part of the city. To create a space where people can come together and feel welcome, regardless of where they come from, what their profession is and what they choose to wear. London is a melting pot of creative people from all cultural backgrounds and we want to celebrate that at The Twenty Two.”

We want everyone who passes through The Twenty Two to experience exceptional service, be greeted with a smile and, most importantly, feel welcome and accepted, whist enjoying the best hospitality London has to offer.”
