Sibling to the reassuringly well-mannered Coburg across the lobby, the glamorous Cubist-inspired Connaught Bar is a fearsomely chic, art-deco salon for high-maintenance Prada-clad signoras and their palazzo-owning spouses. Come here if you fancy some edgy mixology against a backdrop of shimmering textured walls overlaid with dusky pink, pistachio and lilac. Signature cocktails (from £16) include after ten (a Diplomatico Reserva rum fancy with chocolate cereals included), gin yuzu, and faraway Collins (a sarsaparilla and eucalyptus-infused gomme fix); otherwise, the ‘martini table’ is a cool touch. This world-class watering hole also provides outstanding edible thrills, courtesy of the hotel’s resident Michelin-starred chef Hélène Darroze – think small plates of foie-gras pintxos with gingerbread and apple purée, lobster spring rolls or confit-duck cromequis with pineapple chutney. Service is as smooth as the bar’s tiramisu-toned, polished marble floors.
