This double-height, limestone-floored lobby is the place to meet over martinis and close a deal on your iPad before taking in a theatreland smash hit. Cathedral-sized windows, outsized bronze, floral sculptures and other swanky design statements provide the backdrop for a classy selection of Champagne, fine wines, cocktails and superior food guaranteed to keep the resident Prada posse and other high rollers satisfied. Consider seasonal ideas such as perfect sesame (shiso-infused Suntory Yamazaki 12 Year Old whisky, sesame syrup, sherry and bitters), taste the forbidden fruit (Metaxa 7 brandy, apple-infused gin and apricot) or yield unto sweet temptation (Grey Goose citron vodka, pistachio liqueur, orgéat and lemon). Otherwise, the iron lady (an east-meets-west gin fix) references the late Baroness Thatcher, whose belief in capitalism’s ability to prevail is much in evidence here.
