Despite its location on an unprepossessing corner of Leicester Square (the former home of the Swiss Centre), the W hotel doesn’t mess about in the luxury stakes. This place is seriously indulgent and Wyld, the first floor bar, is no different, an explosion of crimson and glitter with multiple mirror balls handing from the ceiling. This place is unashamedly glamorous and has its sights set on the city’s fashion pack. The cocktail list is tequila-heavy and steeply priced but that’s par for the course. Open into the small hours and conveniently situated for all the major film premieres, so expect to see the paparazzi loitering outside the entrance. Take note, the bar is guest-list only and minimum spends apply, so call ahead (or be the star of a blockbusting movie that usually helps).
