Despite having an old-school oak-panelled style and more than a touch of the Don Drapers about it, this bar to the rear of the London Edition hotel is a contemporary, high-fashion hangout where platinum-blonde bar staff look like supermodels and guests smoulder in the corner by candlelight. A reservations-only policy makes the place feel all the more exclusive (especially if your table happens to be the one by the roaring fire). Retro soul tracks match the drinks serve, with a complimentary sherry glass of the punch of the day served to guests on arrival, like a swinging ’70s house party. Trying the more curious – and heady – cocktails (all priced at £14) is far from intimidating, since bar staff keenly and knowledgeably steer you. Some sensible classics stay put on the list, but adventurous seasonal drinks are worth perusing too, like the 57 Shades of Grey with vodka, whiskey, Campari and prosecco all in the mix. That’s how to pack a punch.

Going through a slight hotel cocktail bar phase and thought we’d give this bar a quick look! The cocktails were reasonable and quite tasty, I tend to order an Old Fashioned or the bar’s closest version to it as I feel that if you can make a really good Old Fashioned, everything else is probably pretty good too! The ambience here was nice and the waitress was kind enough to recommend some gin cocktails for my partner, the music was mellow and did not overpower conversation. Really nice place to go for a chilled, after a hectic day at work, drink.

So first up, I was technically in the Lobby Bar at The Edition on this visit. It's a classy affair as the pictures suggest with beautiful high ceilings and comfortable sofas to lose an afternoon in! I had two of the famous Clearer Colada cocktails which...well let's just say you wouldn't want to drive after one or two of these bad boys. The drinks are about £15 for a cocktail but it's such a treat to be in an elegant atmosphere, and plus you get complimentary nuts too (come on, awesome right?) The Punch Bar is tucked away at the back and is great for parties (I've been to a fab party here) as its private and exudes old-school charm. Dress up, you're going to like it.

Beautiful cocktails in luxurious surroundings.  Not one for every day but for a special occasion definitely worth a visit! The punch is potent but the servings are small so there isnt much risk of drinking too much too quickly!
