SquareMeal Review of
The Palm Court at The Park Lane Hotel
The grand Palm Court is one of London’s most striking and palatial spaces, but remains largely off the so-stylish crew’s radar. Their loss is your gain: the Queen Mumsy mix of velvet sofas, art
deco and chinoiserie harks back to a more elegant era. Dress up in your best Rogers and Astaire finery for Champagne afternoon tea and stay on for sundowners prepped at a dinky bar. Order a
lemon bomb (a minty vodka, lime and limoncello cooler) and Piccadilly 112 (a Midori gin and ginger mule), or revert to 1930s favourite, the grasshopper. There’s fizz from £13.50 (Bouche Père
et Fils), plus a wide range of ales and Côtes du Rhone at a not-cheeky £26.50. Luxury sandwiches, salads and sinful puds are available all day. The divine loos are worth the visit alone, but
why the paucity of palms?
