Opposite the Bank of England, 1 Lombard Street is a City institution, serving elegant European dishes backed by an extensive drinks list. Its main space has a soaring glass-dome ceiling and houses the Bar and Brasserie, which can be combined for dinners or standing receptions. For a quiet working lunch, try the adjacent 1776 restaurant, while the Botanical Room, resplendent in floral prints and vintage details, is the spot for private dining.
