I have been going to this hotel bar for years. However, after my experience last night, I will not be returning. My husband and I went for drinks and he ordered a vodka martini and was asked for his preferred vodka. He chose a premium brand. Later on in our evening I ordered a vodka and Diet Coke. I expected...

Enjoyed a couple of house specialities and especially the fact that they provided the recipes for the cocktails, so that I could try them myself.

Having stayed at the Connaught Hotel on many occasions, it is somewhat a rarity that I have time to enjoy the bar itself but being partly on a business trip, this opportunity presented itself. The bar is a cosy design with comfortable chairs, mahogany walls but also a separate area with large bay windows, light and airy and slightly more... More

There is so much to like at this fantastic bar; a welcome mini-cocktail to savour on arrival whilst choosing from a very well-crafted list, excellent light snacks, super cocktails as you might expect, and very few gimmicks unless you count the wonderful martini trolley which is a fabulous, fabulous thing. The staff were without exception on the ball, and I... More

The $30 hamburger does not equal shake shack!. It was dry and overcooked, but nicely presented after 30 minutes of waiting. Children are not allowed at night so there is no place in the hotel to have an evening coffee except room service if you are with your family and room service is outrageously priced.

Description
Ultra-stylish décor and chic, innovative cocktails put the award-winning Connaught Bar in a league of its own. This is where new icons are born and classics skilfully reimagined. The bar's design, by the late David Collins, was inspired by English Cubist and Irish 1920s art, and features textured walls shimmering in platinum silver leaf.

Staying in Mayfair

Neighbourhood Profile
Mayfair
Set beside some of London's best parks and home to world-class galleries, luxurious hotels, and famed thoroughfares, the ultra upscale Mayfair is one of London's most exclusive haunts. Here the shopping is haute, the dining is exquisite, and the nightlife is vibrant. A casual stroll through the area’s chic streets will reveal that Michelin stars and chauffeured cars are practically the norm here. Even if you're on a tight budget, this exceptionally well connected swath of Central London is worth exploring, if only for the chance to take a peak at the goings on of upper crust English society.
