We had booked dinner elsewhere in Mayfair,but decided on pre-dinner drinks at the Rivoli Bar.
A warm welcome to the hotel as we left the taxi,and shown to the bar by an enthusiastic Bell Boy when we said we were not residents.
I had a jacket and open shirt which is OK now after a recent review in dress code,and the only places left to sit were at the bar itself,no problem with that.
The whole vibe could take you back to the twenties,a time of chivalry and indulgence.
My wife had the Ritz champagne cocktail,finished with gold leaf no less,I had something less fussy but just as special.I always think that £20 for a drink in a place like this perceives better value than a Large gin in a regular London Brasserie for £15 or so !
Watching the final afternoon tea customers wind away,and the bustle of the evening begin I could have sat there all night.Fabulous.More
