Regency striped curtains, antique clocks and burgundy leather create a sophisticated drawing room, where balding editor types in spectacles murmur discreetly, occasionally interrupted by cackles from surgically remodeled princesses in furs and Bulgari rocks. Women here have been tinted and teased to the max, taking their cues from the silver-framed pictures of past visitors Margaret Thatcher, Nancy Reagan and Joan Collins. Once you see the check, your hair will stand up, too.
