London-North and Northwest London

Hotel bars can be a bit interchangeable, anonymous, lacking in character – not so Hunter 486 at the Arch, a chic little boutique establishment with a stylish, individual cocktail bar. It’s on the small side, true, but it has more charm than you might expect and, most importantly, some seriously skilful bar tenders. There’s a refreshing attention to detail in their presentation of both classic and contemporary concoctions. Their Earl Grey Martini is the pick of the drinks list but there’s plenty to choose from. Named for the local Marble Arch dialling code, the space has been styled by the Gorgeous Group and hits just the right balance of city slickness and vintage detailing. It’s the ideal spot for an early evening, pre-dinner tipple (the adjacent restaurant is also worth a look) or mid week reviver.
