Long Bar, Sanderson hotel

No designer flash in the pan, the Sanderson remains a statement hotel, a Schrager/Starck creation that takes clinical chic in the bedrooms to new heights. Colour is generally conspicuous by its absence: the design throughout is all flowing white net drapes, gleaming glass cabinets and retractable screens. The residents-only Purple Bar sports a button- backed purple leather ceiling and fabulous cocktails; in particular, try the Vesper. The ‘billiard room’ has a purple-topped pool table, surrounded by strange tribal adaptations of classic dining room furniture.

Take a break from hell (Oxford Street) and treat yourself to a glorious cocktail from here. The decor kind of resembles the 1978 depiction of Krypton in that Superman film (i.e trying to be contemporary but actually just a bit naff and dated), but the general setup of the long bar has an awesome buzz and is perfect for people watching.


Visited the Purple Bar at the hotel, what a hidden gem, had no clue this little bar existed. Beautiful and relaxing, felt as though I was a million miles away from the city. Very chic and dramatic decor with attentive staff. Drinks make it worth the visit.
