Named after the deep artesian well beneath the Langham's foundations, this rum-focused cocktail bar rejects the purity of the water source in favour of a flamboyant David Collins design. All is purple or snakeskin, with a delicate butterfly motif almost lost amid the pagoda lanterns and horses' head lamps, while an award-winning cocktail list and expert mixologists offer plenty of reasons to linger. A stock of 75 rums is deployed for spirited creations including the Portland Place shrub with goji berries, Elements 8 spiced rum and Meantime's wheat beer, while the proximity of the BBC has produced a Bacardi and Becherovka liqueur mix named after ‘Aunty'. For those who are unsure of their perfect match, a flavour map should help with navigation, though the painstakingly made Langham gin martini is always a safe bet.
