Light Bar

The Light Bar on the ground floor of the stylish St Martins Lane hotel has some of the best cocktails in London - they make a mean Caipirinha - boasts striking Philippe Starck decor and a cool, chic vibe. The walls are hung with enormous black and white close-up photos of people making funny faces taken by wildly progressive French fashion photographer Jean Baptiste Mondino. All this comes at a price but it's worth it for the standard of cocktails, the designer interior, and the people watching. Open to residents and non-residents alike, it's a convenient place to stop by for a couple of cheeky after dinner cocktails. It's the sort of place where you might pop in for a quick drink after the theatre on a Saturday night and end up staying for three hours - just bring your fat wallet with you if you do!
