Some of Our Favorites
The Guesthouse is a favorite of ours when we are outside the Sanford bubble. The building is midcentury and the bar evokes a charming 1980s Florida feel. It has large windows facing west and when the sun and clouds collude just right, golden hour is almost as good as the drinks.
So nice we did it twice. We planned to visit the Connaught Hotel Bar only once during our 2017 Christmastime in London trip, however the experience was so wonderful we squeezed a second visit into our itinerary before we headed home. This is also where we fell in love with Tanqueray No. Ten.
We like James Bond. We like martinis. And we love Dukes Bar which has both. Bond aficionados know Dukes as the place where Ian Fleming coined the phrase "shaken, not stirred" and gave James Bond his love of martinis. It was a pleasure to chat with bar manager Alessandro Palazzi and discuss his favorite music and his drink making philosophy. Also, The Mr. quickly learned why there is a two martini limit.
2015 and 2016’s Word’s Best Bar was named so for a reason. The coziness, the variety, the hospitality and service are unlike anything we’ve experienced thus far. It is an Irish bar, but you’re not limited to pints and Irish whiskies. The ground floor pub, The Taproom, is their take on a traditional Irish pub, while the second floor houses The Parlor where their craft and classic cocktails are mixed with care and respect.
