London's Best Hotel Bars

Nov 5th 2015 | lifestyle | london | Written by Will Jamieson

How the times have changed. Once, just a dreary place for guests to kill time, hotel bars are now drinking destinations in their own right. We take a look at the best London has to offer:

Connaught Bar, The Connaught

The Connaught Hotel's signature bar is a triple threat: Killer cocktails, prime London location and architectural style.

Punch Room, The London Editon

Feeling like you’re stepping into a Victorian gentleman’s club, this bar provides the perfect way to unwind at the end of a long day.

Cocktail Lounge, The Zetter Townhouse

A classic that has it all, the Zetter Townhouse is styled around fictional patron Aunt Wilhelmina to create an eclectic, quirky and beautifully British experience.

Artesian, The Langham Hotel

Named by industry publication Drinks International as the world’s best bar for the last three years in a row, this bar takes some beating. 

For cocktail lovers, drinking here is the equivalent of a night at the theatre.

The American Bar and Beaufort Bar, The Savoy

Instrumental in popularising the cocktail, this bar endures to serve up the most sensational concoctions, dressed dramatically in the Art Deco-style room. 

It’s really lovely to have assurance from the company arranging the night that we will be looked after, even after we have paid the money - Charlotte
