SquareMeal Review of
The Bar & Sky Terrace
Land on this square of the Monopoly board & go straight to jail: no great hardship when the clink in question comes with passion-fruit mojito, peach Bellini or pear & elderflower Collins to
soften your stretch. This hotel bar is fashioned from a converted magistrate’s court, & you can book one of the original holding cells – complete with loos (now water features) – that housed
celebrity detainees such as Oscar Wilde & Johnny Rotten. Nowadays, porridge gives way to canapés & panini, & although some might rate prices here ‘daylight robbery’, you’re getting off
lightly by five-star West End hotel standards. If the window-less room sends you stir crazy, escape to the Soho Sky Terrace, a summer rooftop bar with deals such as a bucket of beer & a
barbecue platter for £27. With Pimm’s, pink Champagne & sporting action to watch on discreet TV screens, this open ‘prison’ is a breeze.
