Donovan Bar – A sophisticated take on established English style both in design and drinks, the Donovan Bar at Browns Hotel in Mayfair is both intimate and hip. Cozy low lit relaxed modern lounge with a classic dark wood bar back lit by a stained glass window of St. George.

The Blue Bar – Ultra fashionable and tres chic, The Berkeley’s pale blue bar in Knightsbridge is like walking into a jewel box. That in itself makes the Blue Bar a treat, but the mixologists behind the bar make some of the tastiest cocktails in the city. An exciting and very tasty bar menu with extraordinary concoctions, and garnished so prettily with orchids or feathered lemon peel make for cocktails a la mode.
