The Coral Room is Bloomsbury’s best new bar. It’s full of bright young things like the designer responsible for the renovation, Mr Martin Brudnizki, and Mr Luke Edward Hall, the artist whose creations adorn the coral pink walls. Try the Green Fingers cocktail – essentially a guilt-free green juice with Stolichnaya.
This bar on the border of literary Bloomsbury and edgy Soho is the latest renovation at The Bloomsbury hotel. Designed by Mr Martin Brudnizki with a club lounge cum salon bar theme, it has striking bright coral walls and a chunky marble bar, and is filled with leafy palms, stylish sofas and Murano glass chandeliers. English sparkling wines and cocktails are the top tipples. We’re fond of the Big Smoke, which is spiked with mezcal, ginger ale and chipotle tincture. More proof that there’s no smoke without fire.
