Piano Man / Hg2 MUST-DRINK

What could be more decadent than a trip to the library? No, we’re not talking about books: Bassoon Bar‘s boutique spirits library is a veritable treasure-trove of luxury liqueurs. Part of London‘s Corinthia Hotel in Whitehall, Bassoon’s slick Art Deco interiors are inspired by music and provide a suitably elegant accompaniment to the cocktails. There’s a selection that’s sure to put you in rhapsodies: homemade sodas carbonated to order in the tumbler, served with a cheeky shot of gin; a tempting time-line of martinis through the ages; and a host of melody-inspired mixes from sophisticated sours to the candy-coated Bubblegum Martini topped with bubblegum air. The mixologists’ molecular wizardry all takes place atop the grand piano which extends a full seven metres to form the bar. Let’s hope the pianist doesn’t get carried away and rattle the glasses — easy off the Rachmaninoff!
