The Commodore Club is an exclusive cocktail bar situated on board the three Cunard Queens. Our brief encompassed all aspects of the club, from identity and interiors, to service and glassware, and most importantly the menu itself.

With a long and distinguished history we seized the opportunity to explore the Cunard archive, sifting through 175 years of maritime documents, royal endorsements and beguiling ephemera to draw inspiration for a contemporary cocktail experience.



The bar team developed seven signature cocktails inspired by Cunard’s seven knighted Commodores, whose distinguished characters were brought to life with contemporary ink and pencil portraits by Lauren Crow.
