Checking in at Mayfair’s coolest new bar – The Luggage Room

It was freezing last night in London… thankfully not cold enough to deter us from the special preview of The Luggage Room (10-13 Grosvenor Square).

It’s always a good start when you have to do a bit of searching to find the entrance I think…a secretive black doorway was our passage way back into the 1920’s where we found a super stylish cocktail supping area awaiting us, oozing ultimate sophistication and style.

The interior of this place is amazing! Kitted out by Fable Studios, there’s huge attention to detail, marble floors, studded walls, great big loungey sofas and fabulous areas to sit in if there’s a good group of you all in bang on 1920’s style.  This was in fact the real luggage room of the hotel that it’s located next to and the transformation is unbelievable!

The menu didn’t disappoint either - crafted by Bar Manager Abdulai Kpekawa, it's really something quite special.  Some of our favourite tipples were the ‘Airmail’ and the ‘Boston Cobbler’ cocktails , but there’s also a huge range of champagnes and wines, martinis and punches on the massive menu plus a small snacks taster menu – we tried the pork pies with mustard which were totally delicious.

Carrying the theme of the - ‘Bentley Boys’ – a group of weathly Brit’s who drove their Bentley’s to victory in the roaring 20’s, there’s actually a themed ‘Bentley Cup’ which is a blend of Tanqueray, English tea (keeping in with the uber English theme) marmalade vodka and champagne (of course!)  But if you want to indulge in that one, then be quick as there’s only one Bentley Cup which sits proudly in one corner of the bar.

It’s an amazing place for a date, or a really nice catch up with friends, and it carries all the glamour of the decade too.  The waitresses and bar staff are kitted out in the most gorgeous outfits (you’ll see what I mean when you see the girls… ask them nicely and they might tell you where they got their dresses from!) and the service really was impeccable.  You’re sure to be made to feel really welcome whatever time you rock up (opening hours are 5pm-1am)…. That’s if you can find the secret door….

Check it out from Thursday 13th December….
