Named “The best bar in the world”, by “Drinks International”, The Artesian is anything but “just a bar”.

Situated in London’s elegant and famous Langham Hotel, and named after the 360ft-deep artesian well under the hotel, “The Artesian” has topped the list of the world’s best bars ranking for three consecutive years. Guide MICHELIN lists the Langham in their 2015 “Main Cities of Europe” as “back to its best” and praises the “stylish Artesian bar”. Head Mixologist, Alex Kratena, received ‘Bar Personality of the Year Award’ by Imbibe Magazine and in 2012 ‘International Bartender of The Year’.

Artesian also just recently won Best International Cocktail Bar 2015 Spirited Awards 2015 #‎TOTC2015.

The Artesian showcases London’s largest collection of rums, an extensive Champagne list, alongside an inventive menu of cocktails and blends, and now Neuschwansteiner.

Catering to this year’s hot European summer, Artesian announces: “Even the ice here is special – produced using the very latest technology, Artesian’s ice is purer, colder and with a higher density, making it last longer and your cocktails cooler.”

Just now, a new bar theme has been announced, we are quoting ”The Artesian, London: … Known for pushing the boundaries when it comes to both décor and menu items, visitors next summer can anticipate a mind-blowing surrealism theme that the owner plans to incorporate by July 2015.”

Under the motto “The source of indulgence”, Alex Kratena and Simone Caporale have been the creative duo in the bar for four years, with their new cocktail menu ‘Surrealism’, unveiled July 2nd, they are: “allowing guests to delve into their subconscious.”

Perfect timing for us at Neuschwansteiner, as the Artesian now serves our Edelmärzen!
We feel: This is a perfect match! Just recently, gourmet expert and Ralf Bos Bos (voted into the culinary hall of fame by ‘der Feinschmecker’ and crowned ‘Grand Seigneur’ by Port Culinaire) judged Neuschwansteiner as: “The best beer in the world”. What better place could we now choose for our first UK home than the Artesian Bar!?

Our CEO and founder Christan Seitz is impressed:

“We simply love the Artesian. The Langham Hotel is a fabulous place, and when we have meetings in London, this is the place for us to be!”

 “I am delighted that we are now listed in the Artesian and I can’t wait to find out what cocktail-creations the ever so innovative and creative bartenders come up with!”

Duncan Palmer, Managing Director of The Langham, London quotes:

“We are delighted to feature Neuschwansteiner beer as it reflects upon the history of The Langham that originally opened in 1865 with Neuschwanstein Castle that dates back to 1882.”

The Artesian Bar has a great mixture of fantasy, innovation, tradition and modernity just as Neuschwanstein Castle has today.

The best bar in the worldThe Neuschwansteiner beer itself is of an outstanding luxury standard which is in keeping with the Artesian Bar, The World’s Best Bar!”
