Tucked away in a corner of the Hotel Café Royal (which is worth a visit in itself) we stumbled the Green bar while 'just looking around'. The bar stocks an impressive variety of French absinthe and a beautiful absinthe tap, so really what's a couple of girls to do on a Friday night but enjoy a dance with the green fairy? A glass of Le Fée dropped over a sugar cube will take £16 from your pocket but we highly recommend.


Another hotel bar crossed off my hit list, only another couple of hundred to go! :s

You may feel slightly daunted as you approach the entrance of this very swish hotel, especially if you were dressed as shabbily as I was on a Friday night at 11pm. However, the doorman was very smiley and welcoming, instantly setting me at ease. The barman was just as friendly and recommended some of his favourite cocktails, we opted for the Vesper Martini and Old Fashioned (a true mark of a cocktail bar is how good their Old Fashioned is) and the Hotel Café Royal Green Bar know how to make a drink! Very relaxed setting, mingling with guests and randoms, also complimentary snacks – they clearly knew the way into my good books! Definitely recommend popping in here for a drink pre or post date.


The Green Bar is a relaxed place to duck away from the crush of Regent Street. With a wide range of cocktails and a small, intimate atmosphere, it feels fancy but not pretentious. 

The cocktail prices are on a par with most hotel bars in London, but the Green Bar is all the more enjoyable for the contrast with the hustle and bustle beyond its doors. 

I'm just sorry I didn't try the short-lived free-flowing prosecco brunch, as that sounded original and excellent value. Please bring it back!
