The Lanesborough's secret garden is an outdoor, heated area just below street level that's legal for smoking. Only when you are in the garden would you realise it was there - walking by on the street its clientele is totally hidden from the masses. Quite right too.

Actually, the space is fairly well hidden inside too: reached from the basement, down a long, unsigned corridor. Enter through electric glass doors, slightly incongruous with the pomp and grandeur of the rest of the hotel.

There's a large humidor with lockers for wealthy regulars in which to keep their Cohibas and Monte Christos, some of them pre-Castro and costing up to £1,000 a pop, and to complement them is a wide range of aged spirits, in particular with whiskies listed by region. You can have many of the same drinks as the Library Bar, but there's also a wider range of champagne, with plenty of Louis Roederer expressions. Note the £25 minimum spend per person - that alone will keep the riff raff out.
