Before you shell out £1,500 for a five-year membership (which encompasses other Rushmore Group venues), why not book in advance for a test drive at this celebrated outpost of the New York legend? Once inside, rub shoulders with bon viveurs, raconteurs, chancers and famous faces a go-go. The old-skool Soho vibe is appealing and the price of a top-drawer martini is no more than at inferior hangouts hereabouts. Around £10 gets Brigadoon, Floradora, peaty Scotch penicillin (a whisky toddy) and revived classics such as Dempsey (gin, Calvados, grenadine and absinthe), while nice nosh includes sliders, popcorn shrimps, pizzetti, arancini balls and crostini to go with bottles of house wine (£22). Cigars on the roof terrace and fun in the games room are further reasons to apply for full membership, which also allows you to linger beyond 11pm.
