The Blue Boar Bar

Squaremeal Review of The Blue Boar Bar ?

Its proximity to the seat of government informs the design of the appealing bar at London’s newest InterContinental Hotel. Gerald Scarfe cartoons and satirical puppets of political big wigs are witty appendages to a well-upholstered tweedy, wood-panelled lounge that suggests a Palace of Westminster bolthole. Cocktails such as mezcal mule, aviation (based on eucalyptus-infused gin), Tequila martinez and Paddington (rum, Lillet blanc, pink grapefruit, lemon, absinthe and the eponymous bear’s beloved marmalade) get the vote – as does a beer offer that includes draught Black Isle Porter and Meantime’s Yakima Red. As well as regulation hotel bar food, visitors can also enjoy pork belly bites, deep-fill cheese baps and oysters every which way. Cosy, conspiratorial private snugs and high-end afternoon tea in twee Emmeline’s next door are further reasons to file through the lobby.

The next chapter of my culinary addiction had since led me to Conrad London St. James to sample its Summer in the City afternoon tea in the Emmeline’s Lounge and I can proudly confirm – it’s up there with the best. I’ve no idea why I’ve not visited this sumptuous and sophisticated hotel before because it really is (almost) on my doorstop. They got me from...

    Luxury Columnist :: Summer in the City Afternoon Tea - Conrad London St James

    You can’t beat a good afternoon tea and The Conrad London St James does one of the best. It’s located in the heart of historic St. James, behind a 19th century facade which was once Queen Anne’s chambers. Go inside and you’ll come across a very modern interior with some very unique artworks. Their afternoon tea lounge, Emmeline’s, is a stylish place with mood lighting and unusual artworks.
