The PerceptionOpened in late 2017, The Perception has taken over the lobby of the W London. Designed by Amsterdam-based firm Concrete, the bar is inspired by London's most iconic eras and trends. Split into seven zones, it has an eye-catching bar at its centrepiece that has a sophisticated cocktail bar design alongside traditional British pub influences. Inventive cocktails are made using unique ingredients like matcha, fresh basil and fig liqueur. The bar also serves a tipsy twist on afternoon tea, a retox brunch and special dining series such as a boldly vegan menu by chef Ravinder Bhogal. Combining her global culinary influences based on her heritage and travels, Bhogal presents a menu that aims to excite vegans and omnivores alike. Dishes include besan fritters with coconut yoghurt and curry leaf and rose, coconut and cardamom doughnuts.
