SquareMeal Review of The Lobby Bar at One Aldwych

Bronze Award

This luxury lounge boasts all the trappings of a smart hotel bar, so expect silky service, a stylish ambience and classy cocktails with a high price tag. Expensively put together with dramatic floral displays and objets d'art, the airy room has sleek polished stone floors and large double-height windows to create a sense of occasion, while dramatic drinks live up to the decor. Two can share the show-stopping Bewitched Passion: Babicka vodka mixed with homemade fennel syrup, pomegranate shrub and peppermint bitters, topped with Champagne and served in an absinthe fountain. If that's too OTT, go for a demure Peach Bellini or classic Sidecar. An approachable international wine list is safer still, while bar snacks are pitched firmly at the hotel's well-heeled international clientele – think club sandwiches, mini burgers with truffle mayo and platters of smoked salmon, crab and prawns.

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Afternoon Tea
06 April 2015  
I took my sister for afternoon tea for her birthday, while the service was very good I was disappointed by the atmosphere as we were in the lobby of the hotel. I would have preferred to be in a restaurant. The afternoon tea was ok but not very well themed and was a bit disappointing. I thought the Alice in Wonderland Afternoon Tea at The Sanderson was much better.
