As luxury hotel bars go, the Astor Bar at the St. Regis delivers - in spades.

Rich woods, art deco brasswork, red leathers, lithographs and marble go to make a space that's part Orient Express and part modern-day gentlemen's club, a subtly contemporary take on high colonial style.

Whatever you think of the St. Regis group's claim to ownership of the Bloody Mary, the Bloody Mary list here is well worth investigating.

The house variation, a Chili Padi Mary, comes spiced with lemongrass, ginger and chilli. The Great Wall Mary, by way of the St. Regis Beijing, is an enticing hybrid of Michelada and Mary, or an update of the Redeye, that works quite phenomenally well.

Bloody Marys not your thing? Choose from any one of a range of classic cocktails, fine champagnes and decent spirits, all accompanied with luxurious nibbles. By the way, this is one of the ones where the dress code calls for no shorts or flip flops.
