To say the new Knightsbridge Hotel owned by Italian fashion house Bulgari is flashy would be an understatement. This place drips luxury and money. The décor is all gold leaf and onyx, with polished mahogany walls. The bar is no less dazzling with a striking and sleek metal bar, the kind of place made for perching with a bespoke cocktail. The Cherry and Pistachio Bellini is refined and delicious, a modern twist on an Italian classic. Bar snacks include top notch focaccia and olives but we suspect the clientele aren’t overly concerned with such things. The cigar shop on the other hand is bound to prove popular. This is the kind of place you come to be seen so dress the part and make sure your wallet is up to the task.
