Lounge bar and roof terrace sit atop a fashionable Keith McNally New York style café. Pull on your best clobber and head up to the opulent boudoir of lounge, the place to see and be seen.
Elephant husks curl around either side of the high carved mahogany fireplace - and that's just behind the bar. On either side a good range of high end spirits sit on glass shelves that rise up to the high ceiling from which hang oversized lamps.
The Apartment, the top floor of the Boca Grande, is only open Thursday, Friday and Saturday and pre-booking is essential.
You'll find good food and drinks served on all floors. It's all a tad pretentious but with their position and clientele - understandably so.
