London Fashion Weeks hot spots!
With London Fashion Week 2014 almost upon us, we have picked out our top 4 places to visit near Somerset House during London’s most fashionable week!
Situated opposite Somerset House, Radio Rooftop Bar is the perfect location for those London Fashion Week after show drinks. Elegant and sophisticated, with a stunning backdrop this really is the number one place to visit during London Fashion Week.
Radio Rooftop Bar offers stunning views across London, a great Tapas menu plus an extensive cocktail list.
Entry to the bar is on a walk in basis, depending on how busy the bar is at the time. The dress code is formal – which shouldn’t be a problem during Fashion Week!
Prices reflect the usual London drinks cost – cocktails are around £12 however the service given is of the highest standard.
The décor is ultra modern and if you brave the outside Rooftop Bar there are comfy sofas and patio heaters to keep you warm!
If you don’t fancy Radio Rooftop then ME Hotel also has the Marconi Lounge which is situated in the hotel lobby for a more casual visit.
We 100% recommend Radio Rooftop Bar for a fashion filled, glamorous after show drink or two!
One Aldwych is situated in Covent Garden, just a two minute walk from Somerset House. It is yet another hotel which we recommend visiting during London Fashion Week. The ambience here is relaxing but glamorous. The staff are simply amazing too (see my review here).
We visited Indigo for brunch and can whole heartedly recommend this for a sophisticated event before or after the Fashion Week shows. The unlimited prosecco offer is the ultimate enjoyment!
One Aldwych also have an amazing lobby bar too, with a double height ceiling and gorgeous sculptures for a more relaxed event or just for cocktails!
“This is probably the most beautiful hotel lobby bar in London.”
London Evening Standard
Pricing again matches the London standard but the ambience, service and quality is well worth the London weighting.
Corinthia Hotel is situated just a mere 10 minute walk from Somerset House and offers plenty of bars and restaurants to enjoy during London Fashion Week.
Corinthia Hotel is one of the most luxurious hotels in London and the bars certainly reflect that.
The three bars include ‘Bassoon’, ‘The Northall Bar’ and ‘Massimo Oyster Bar’. We have visited ‘The Northhall Bar’ and enjoyed some lovely cocktails here so can recommend this as a great place to visit.
The ambience is relaxed but elegant – dress code is casual / formal being a hotel lobby. Prices again reflect London cocktail prices but the quality is worth it. The Corinthia Hotel oozes luxury and high class, making it the perfect place to visit during London Fashion Week.
My final recommendation is a little bit different to the above. If you wish to let your hair down we really recommend visiting ‘Adventure Bar’ Covent Garden.
Adventure Bar is a fun and lively place where the drinks are themed and sometimes very surprising. The atmosphere is exciting and lively with a retro feel.
The music has mix of classic and modern tracks to keep you entertained, and a cocktail list (handed to you in a retro DVD case!) which will have you fighting over what to chose!
Adventure bar offers an alternative evening to the other places recommended and well worth a visit after the shows, being just ten minutes from Somerset House. Prices are cheaper than expected which is a great bonus too.
Where ever you decide to visit during London Fashion Week 2014 just remember to do it in style!
