The Trafalgar Dining Rooms (bar) says

Taking the place of wannabe hip but ultimately unfashionable bourbon bar Rockwell, this capacious new spot is attached to The Trafalgar Dining Rooms – but will it lure in London’s lounge lizards? A squishy butternut squash-tone banquette, largely unadorned Prussian blue walls and a clunky art deco-inspired island bar make for chic but zestless surroundings. More noteworthy are the fairly priced cocktails. Investigate pineapple and sage Champagne cocktail, Dib Dab; Napier’s Nightcap (an on-point Quiquiriqui mezcal and Grand Marnier Manhattan spiked with chocolate bitters); or Mistress Emma (a Belvedere vodka, strawberry and thyme Sour). Spanakopita (a feta and spinach savoury pastry) is the highlight of a narrow selection of ‘nibbles’. Better to choose a starter from the main restaurant menu: courgette fritters with crushed broad beans and garlic yoghurt, accompanied by Verdicchio by the glass, perhaps. For something altogether more memorable, head upstairs to the hotel’s USP, The Rooftop sky bar.
