The Library Bar
Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
The luxury Lanesborough hotel is as full of gems as it is history. It's flagship restaurant Celeste, for instance, is a stunning Michelin-starred joint with glittering chandeliers and gold French regency styled decor. The Library Bar doesn't skimp on glamour either. The dark wood, deep shades and leather wing-back armchairs ooze grandeur.
Fans of Cognac will feel particularly at home here, as The Library Bar won an award for its selection of the brandy and has bottles dating back to 1770. Elsewhere cocktails abound and if you can't decide which one to choose they helpfully offer three miniatures for £25.
Plus, no matter what night you're visiting, you're sure to find live music here. There's a resident pianist, who plays from 6.30pm to 9.30pm daily, followed by jazz, and at the weekend a DJ plays chill-out.
