It’s easy to get waylaid at the lively Coburg Bar (named after the original Coburg Hotel, which opened here in 1815), but persevere onwards to the tiny Connaught Bar in the back instead. With grand mirrors, a polished marble floor, dusty pink walls and crocodile skin booths, it’s so reminiscent of a 1920s gentlemen’s salon one would half expect to see women in flapper dresses smoking cigarettes and lounging on the bar. The Martini service, which arrives on a gilded trolley, is famous, as are the whisky tastings paired with bespoke chocolates.
