Perfectly groomed hostesses greet arrivals to this basement den. The atmosphere is lively and, better still, the cocktails are superb: try a Lychee Mojito, which fuses Havana Club Añejo Blanco, lime juice, lychees and mint, or a martini made with Hendrick’s gin and cucumber garnish.
Still, it’s best to make sure your wallet is full: Crazy Bear charges luxury-hotel prices but misses out the free luxury-hotel nibbles, and ordering two rounds of drinks with small-plate eats (dim sum, spring rolls and the like) can make for an expensive hour.
The bar’s heavily mirrored toilets can be difficult to find, but don’t worry: male staff and customers are quite used to ladies accidentally opening the wrong door.
