SquareMeal Review

Long before the possibilities at The Shard stole its thunder, the sky lounge on the 28th floor of the Hilton was dazzling drinkers with its sensational views. The bartenders’ skills are similarly celestial, so order a French lover (a twist on cosmopolitan) or try The Dutch (a bittersweet affair involving genever, agave syrup, lime, cucumber and horseradish) from a drinks list that also has a dozen Champagne marques and some ambitiously marked-up beers. Bar bites include crudités, beef teriyaki, burgers and Eton mess. The decor harks back to an era when Steed and Mrs Peel from The Avengers surely dropped in for nightcaps, although today’s crowd is less sharp: expect a mishmash of new money, Texan tourists, movers, shakers, sheikhs and sundry Mayfair hoi polloi.

    sexdrugsandbaconrolls :: Galvin at Windows

    We have heard mixed reviews of Galvin at Windows, a Michelin restaurant located in the London Hilton on Park Lane; overpriced, two years unfashionable and on the other scale fabulous food. The only thing we have found people tend to agree on is the amazing views. Galvin at Windows is set on 28th floor of the Hotel so I made sure I asked for a window seat.

    As you arrive from the elevator you are welcomed by a reception, with the bar to the left and the restaurant to the right. The bar overlooks Mayfair and is light and airy and exudes sophistication. The bar follows this theme with a raised area in the centre...
