Review Words by Simon Difford on 2016-10-04

Turn left as you enter the Berkeley Hotel lobby and you'll find yourself in the aptly named Blue Bar. Although it is tiny, no one could accuse this David Collins-designed bar of being understated.

Cherubs and floral woodcarvings drip from the ceiling and surround the fish-eye mirrors on the 'Lutyens' blue walls, while a white onyx bar and black crocodile print leather floor add a further touch of loucheness. All the action happens around the bar itself, so you might feel you've missed out on the theatre if you're in the entrance 'annex'.

This five-star venue attracts five-star money, so expect young professionals and cosmetically challenged ladies of leisure perusing the impressive champagne list.
