This grand King's Road spot remains a popular one - and not just with the locals lucky enough to live nearby. The back room bar is just for members but mere mortals are welcome to check out any of the other areas across this four-floor venue - encompassing a cocktail bar, a brasserie, a Champagne penthouse, a restaurant and a club room. Plenty of choice, then.
That choice extends to the food on offer, too. Smoothies, breakfasts and brunches lead into lunches and dinners of a modern-European slant - think pan-fried scallops with broad beans and chorizo, gnocchi with sun-blushed tomatoes, chargrilled asparagus and artichoke, or braised rump of lamb with a chive mash and an artichoke and olive jus. An afternoon tea with the option of Champagne looks good, too.
Cocktails play an important part in the evening revelries, with high-end spirits going into grape expectations (Grey Goose with vin santo and grapes), a some like it hot martini (Mount Gay Eclipse with fresh passionfruit and chilli) and a Chelsea passion (Tanqueray, raspberries and Champagne). The wine list runs to almost 100 labels, with a humbler dozen by the glass.
