Boutique hotel Arch London doesn't have much space to play with, but under the Hunter 486 umbrella it squeezes in a brasserie, Champagne salon, cocktail bar and lounge. In such a bijou space,
customers spread out to drink anything anywhere; a series of cocooning spaces and the soft embrace of Tom Dixon chairs make this a pleasurable experience, with libations dispensed at a stylish
