The Donovan BarFor those who like Gucci with their champagne, the Donovan Bar is an example of all the things a classy hotel bar ought to be. The understated bar is punctuated by more than 50 striking black and white Terance Donovan prints, the British photographer after whom the bar is named. Choose from a long list of expertly mixed cocktails or an equally engaging selection of champagnes, then, find a seat in one of the smooth black leather seats. Order a signature Donovan Martini and take a seat in the 'naughty corner' where Donovan's more risque pictures look down on you. Alternatively, sit beside the original 19th century stained glass window of St George in one of the coolest bars in London. Either way you can't argue with the super competent, discreetly polite staff in their impeccably clean white jackets.
