Holborn Dining Room has London’s largest Gin bar, with over 500 varieties on offer. With a list of Gin cocktails the length of my arm, we recommend speaking with the Ginologist, taking a seat at the copper-topped bar (or out in The Terrace if it’s a rare sunny London day) and working your way through a selection. Trust us, you won’t be able to stop at just one. They are too good!
The heart and soul of the property is definitely Scarfes Bar, which feels nothing like most stuffy hotel bars. Think: distinguished gentleman’s club, with plush velvet chairs, a roaring fireplace, bookcases filled with antique books, and of course, jazz! This spot is named after Gerald Scarfe, the famous British Illustrator who has done all manner of work, including art for Pink Floyd’s album ‘The Wall’, and you’ll find his specifically commissioned pieces lining the walls.
