Welcome to Belmeis! Our new bar, situated in the heart of Muswell Hill, will bring exciting music, infused cocktails and original, creative small plates to N10.
Our approach was to open somewhere that people feel at home. A cosy, unpretentious atmosphere that allows visitors to enjoy the concept of World Music. The sounds of Jazz, Brazilian Bossa Nova or Afghani Rubab music can be heard daily, and we hope to introduce patrons to these soulful, underplayed genres.
Our food is elegant and simple. Small plates of Modern European creations, with an emphasis on what is in season, put together by our experienced chef. Perfect for groups and individuals, wanting something light or more substantial.
Finally, our signature cocktails list which is unique to Belmeis. An innovative, exciting concept designed by Jack Charlton, former Bar Manager at No.5 Hertford Street, with a focus on infused spirits and the seven deadly sins. Expect bacon infused bourbon, cereal milk and chilli infused tequila. We believe this to be one of the most original, inventive cocktail lists in North London! But don’t take our word for it, come and try for yourself…
