SquareMeal Review of Il Bar at the Bulgari Hotel

If you're craving some designer dolce vita, dig out your designer schmutter and head to this swanky jet-setters' playground at the Bulgari Hotel. Il Bar is all about glitz and glamour, with its huge glass-topped, hammered metal counter, polished granite floors and titanium ceiling – just the thing for its resident crowd of icy blondes and oligarchs. Drinks point up the Italian vibe (Prosecco gets top billing over Champagne), while vermouths and limoncellos make their presence felt among the vast array of premium spirits. Absorb the passeggiata over some fizz, a pastis or a Coindino (Belvedere vodka, Cointreau, Crodino aperitif and lemon juice) before ordering some deluxe bar nibbles – mini pizzas, arancini, sliders and the like. To cap it all off, there's an impressive walk-in humidor and sampling room with a frankly astonishing collection of Cuban cigars.

I love this place! Classy, sophisticated, I felt like a queen. Nice and relaxed, you were not looked down on by the staff. Loved the classic italian music played in the background and the complimentary snack was to DIE for! I am definately coming back here again!
