SquareMeal Review of The Connaught Bar at the Connaught

Sipping drinks in the world-beating Connaught Bar signals that you are bang on the smart money. Designed on a 1920s Anglo-Irish Cubist theme, this glamorous cappuccino-toned suite from the late great David Collins is a shimmering vision in silver, platinum, pistachio, lilac, soft pink and mock croc. Its Martini trolley is the stuff of London legend and head barman Agostino Perrone inevitably comes up trumps with his seasonal selection. Recent crushes include summer's Scented Cup (Plymouth gin, Lillet Blanc, saffron, dry sherry, absinthe and orange zest) and the startling Dandelion Coffee, which adds Martell Cordon Bleu Cognac, salted date syrup, cashew milk, Oloroso sherry and tonka beans to the caffeine fix. Nibbles of croque madame with quail’s egg and truffle, salmon tartare with royal caviar, Ibérico ham and rabbit roulade or Rhug Estate beef sliders add to the sex appeal of the sans pareil Connaught.

No wonder this is an award winning bar ! The Martini table is the nicest little touch – make sure you get one of these. the staff are fantastic and very knowledgeable . You can also order canapés from Helene Darroze – these are incredible – i highly suggest the duck canapé. Great environment and amazing staff. couldn't get better!

The Connaught hotel features two exquisite bars that are ideal for very different occasions. The warmth and intimacy of the Coburg Bar makes it a wonderful place to relax after a day at the office or shopping, while the design and the cocktails at the Connaught Bar are perfect for an upbeat glamorous evening with friends. I highly recommend one of their signature Martinis.
