You can’t book a stay in one of The London EDITION’s largest, and most stunning, rooms.
Because it’s The Lobby Bar.
It’s one of the first things you’ll notice as you walk in, thanks to the fact that a) it’s strikingly beautiful, with marble walls, a snooker table, high-backed leather chairs, and a double-height, deep-moulded ceiling guarded by a hypnotising silver orb the size of a phonebox… and b) because it’s in the lobby.
Among the mixed drinks on the list, you’ll find:
- Eat, Drink and be Sherry – with Belvedere, Manzanilla sherry, Palo Cortado sherry, grapefruit sherbet, lime and angostura
- Americanello – with Martini bitter, Barolo Chinato, strawberry and peppermint soda.
- Less Dramas, More Bananas – with Havana 3yo, banana cordial, banana liqueur, cream and mint.
- The Hammock Tester – with Mount Gay Black Barrel, Pedro Ximinez sherry, lemon, lime sherbet, Averna and egg white.
Of course, apart from all this, there’s also a strong lineup of craft beers (they even have their own organic lager), and a sizeable list of wines, Champagnes, and spirits to back it all up. And soaking it all up? There’s-
The offerings are all cooked up in the kitchen next door (Jason Atherton’s Berners Tavern), and include easygoing bites like soya & yuzu tuna tartare with baby gem & pickled onion; Berners Tavern’s mac & cheese with braised beef blade; and some truffle & gruyère croquettes.
They’re worth checking out, before you check out.
NOTE: The London EDITION’s Lobby Bar is open daily from 8am-1am (11pm on Sundays). You can find out more at their website right HERE.
