Along with the bars at The Bulgari and The Berkeley, The Mandarin belongs to a holy trinity of fash-tastic hotel lounges favoured by the Harvey Nicks retail-therapy brigade. Grab a pew and order top cocktails inspired by Mandarin Oriental bars worldwide: Chelsea gardener (Beefeater gin, lemon, camomile, Lady Grey syrup, pomegranate, orange and rose water), Bermudan rum-tini and raspberry Belmondo (named after the 50s' Parisian movie heart-throb) are smart calls at around £15 a pop. High-rolling globetrotters splash serious cash at the catwalk-style bar, while guests toy with dim sum, spring rolls, club sandwiches (£18) or plates of smoked salmon with naan bread, cream cheese and red-onion marmalade. Service has improved ‘dramatically' of late, and the place has ‘gotten its charm back again', notes a fan.
