After 5pm, a steady stream of suited males settles into the clubby, chocolate-brown banquettes. Intimate tables dotted with tea lights, a queen-size mohair bed and strong drinks sex up this Rande Gerber hot spot. But a lack of ladies means that most chat-up lines are directed toward the lithe, knee-booted hostesses who work the room with wily smiles and skirts the size of postage stamps. Reserve a table to ensure a seat.
