Named after famed political cartoonist Gerald Scarfe, this palatial, pillared marbled wing of the Rosewood London hotel is an imperial triumph from designer Martin Brudnizki, whose fruity take on Edwardian pomp creates a classic luxurious space – with great cocktails attached. Sink into deep accommodating sofas by a roaring fire while taking in Scarfe’s edgy works, and anticipate classy calls prepped at an imposing L-shaped bar. Try humidor (Chivas 18 Year Old, white port and absinthe), hats off (mescal, Aperol and agave-sweetened citrus fruit juices) or pith helmet – a reference to Britain’s colonial past, notably in India. Raj-style tiffin snacks also feature on the bar menu, alongside appealingly presented smoked salmon, merguez pizzette, and addictive cheese and onion sourdough toasties. Wines, whiskies, a grand piano and polished service are further reasons to adopt this distinguished drawing room-cum-library.
