Situated in the King Edward Hotel, the Consort Bar is reminiscent of a gentlemen's club. Luckily, ladies are now invited into the old world charm, with cocktails (like the Queen Cosmopolitan) fancy enough to warrant playing dress-up. Sit perched on a bar stool and intersperse your local IPA or glass of wine with sharing plates, including a Falafel platter substantial enough to call it a dinner. The King Eddy has a formidable history. A 1961 menu priced the martinis at a mere 90 cents! Although the prices have inflated, the clientele has remained classy. Try a John and Yoko martini, so named because the former couple stayed at this hotel at the height of Beatlemania.
- Hotel Bars: "Get to know the well versed bartender Stefano. He has been there awhile and could supply you with great stories as well as superb drink recommendations. We may be placing this bar on the list due to him alone."
- Best for Hotel Bars Because: With classic ambiance and a well-curated wine list, The Consort Bar feels like an elegant retreat from the city's hustle.
