This chic bar has ushered in a new era of sophisticated socialising and a return to the glamour of the hotel lounge bar. It reflects the contemporary style and sense of luxury that permeates the Mövenpick hotel itself. The resident mixologists can knock up a mean cocktail, and there’s a good range of snacks and light meals.

Firefly is a confident nightspot – the industrial chic of its whitewashed brickwork, dim lighting, and edgy beats attracts a preened international clientele. A backlit bar glows with premium blends, with cocktail aficionados, spirit lovers, and wine drinkers alike pull up stools to confer with chatty staff who sport braces and the odd jauntily angled hat.
