Squaremeal Review of Brasserie Max (bar) at the Covent Garden Hotel ?

Popular with magazine girls, PRs and shopped-out fashionistas, the bar/brasserie at Firmdale's Covent Garden Hotel exemplifies the owners' singular signature style – imagine Montparnasse belle époque meets Amanda Holden. It's handy for all-day eats and hangover cures, although cocktail hour (and later) is the best time for pukka ‘premium classics': Vesper, sidecar and a Manhattan built on Pappy Van Winkle bourbon come in at £13. The same spend gets various ‘bellinis' including Thai Tom (lychee liqueur, passion fruit, orgéat and fizz), while a blend of Bombay Sapphire gin, crème de fraise, strawberries, ginger, lemon and orange juice is nice enough, but hardly merits the moniker ‘wow'. With salads, sandwiches, dumplings, assorted platters and numerous global grazing plates on offer, it's as well the seats are so accommodating – you may be here for some time.

I owe a debt of gratitude to the Covent Garden Hotel bar (can't comment on the food I'm afraid). I first visited a couple of years ago on a first date. It had not got off to a very good start. The date in question was traipsing me round Seven Dials trying to find a bar he had been to that served supposedly amazing Espresso Martinis but he couldn't find it. I cannot state emphatically enough just how much I HATE faffing: why can't people check where they are going before they (almost) get there? Cutting...

In the heart of Covent Garden, the focal point of the quaint Monmouth Street, the Max bar at the Covent Garden hotel is elegant, intimate and buzzy. Recline, soak up the British charm and feel right at home.
