The Blue Bar in the Berkeley is a London institution. It’s been around since 2000, though the iconic Lutyens blue wood paneling and lighting – originally conceived by David Collins studio, has been around much longer. A recent refurb has seen the bar occupy a state-of-the-art glass extension at the front of the hotel, giving it a new spacious feel, plus it’s got an extensive and updated cocktail menu that leads the way on the London scene. The place has always brought the capital’s sophisticates as well as the hotel’s oh-so-cool guests. The ambience is lively, there’s forever an edge that something special might happen (a celebrity guest invites the house for drinks or the party moves upstairs to a room…) giving you the feeling you’re drinking in a spot of simply impeccable style. Which of course you are. Their collection of over 50 whiskies is second-to-none (many of them rare labels and bottlings), and that's before you get to the champagne menu. Begin at the Blue Bar, then see where your night takes you.
