Blind Spot
Venue says Try our Speakeasy Cocktail for £35, which includes a flight of tea infused cocktails. Perfect for all cake and cocktail lovers.

The name of this swanky cocktail bar at the St Martin's Lane Hotel seems about right. It's a low-lit, intimate little spot almost hidden from the hotel's lobby – blink and you'll miss it. 

Access is through a concealed door behind the hotel's tea counter, and tea features across the cocktail list. Signatures include a gin, peach and bergamot smash (Beefeater gin, peach liqueur, Earl Grey tea and fresh mint), a Scotch, coconut and green tea old fashioned, and a negroni infused with pine needle tea. Classics range from house martinis and manhattans to a cognac sazerac made with Hennessy Fine de Cognac and La Fee absinthe. 

And to eat? Expect Asian-influenced bar snacks such as Thai chilli crackers, crispy chilli beef sliders, chicken satay skewers and hirata steamed buns filled with pork belly, pickled vegetables and Asian herbs.

Through what seems a secret door off the back of the main reception of St Martin's Lane Hotel lies Blind Spot. Amazing bar, very opulent in it's style and design, but incredibly played down. Great atmosphere. Only popped in for a quick drink but easily had a couple more. Well worth a visit.
