The Sanderson is already home to the renowned Long Bar and now it has the Purple Bar, an opulent, jewel-like space. Hidden just off the main reception area, it’s an intentionally intimate bar, seating around twenty in all, but this just adds to the air of exclusivity. The lighting is kept atmospherically low for the same reason. As the name suggests, Purple is the dominate colour here. The walls, the furniture, everything is purple-toned. The cocktail list concentrates on martinis and, while these are pricey (no real surprise), they’re very well made. They also stock an array of champagnes and gained column inches when they introduced one of the most expensive cocktails in London, The Proposal, which came complete with a diamond ring.
