Square Meal Review of Bassoon ?

The Corinthia ought to be a go-to hotel for all fashionable Londoners, if only for the fine cocktails served in its handsome lounge bar. Inspired by the Cubist movement, Bassoon is a chic, soft-focus spin on an art-deco beau monde bar, its witty bar counter fashioned as a 20ft extension of the room’s grand piano. Polished jazz/crooner tunes are performed live most evenings, so listen to the music while working your way through an anthology of cocktails stretching back to Georgian times. All are precision-crafted with attention to detail, including signature mixes such as Mantovani –a medley of Hendrick’s gin, apple juice, white grapes, Sauvignon Blanc, cucumber and elderflower dedicated to the memory of the popular conductor, whose Tipica Orchestra was resident at the hotel during the 1930s, when it was known as The Metropole.
