It may not be one of London’s most widely known bars, but this 1920s-style lounge needn’t hide its light under a bushel. Good Godfrey’s cocktails are, by and large, a match for any rival hotel in town: try tango essence (gin, Mandarine Napoléon and dried-berry tea) – a reminder that the risqué dance was introduced to London society in the Waldorf’s once-fabulous Palm Court, later presided over by bandleader Howard Godfrey. Mai tai and Manhattan are irreproachable, the house signature served in a hip flask is great fun, and there’s a Waldorftini for those who like their drink with a bit of gold-flaked edible bling. Most will set you back around £20, which may be the sting when it comes to attracting non-residents. Factor in bar bites, and the bill can head towards ‘good grief!’ territory.
