The ground floor hotel bar, located in the hotel’s right wing, is as plush as you’d expect. Furnished with oversized bar stools, cool couches and gently glowing lamps, it’s got a kind of library vibe, albeit a library with occasional live music. There’s a rather magnificent fireplace surrounded by comfy red leather armchairs, a lot of deep dark wood and pillars of polished marble.
The back bar stocks an extensive selection of gin and whisky and there’s an inventive cocktail menu with a seasonally changing array of drinks. In a surprisingly on-trend move they even serve craft beer on tap including the awesomely named Beavertown Smog Rocket. Contemporary bar snacks are available if you’re hungry and there are a few curries on the menu if you fancy something more substantial. Prices are on par with hotel bar environs and the central location (i.e. pricey but not brain-meltingly so) and that fireplace looks like the perfect place to recline by on a wintery London night, with a glass of whisky in one’s hand.
