If you’re staying in one of the World’s Best Cities (London, we’re looking at you) and wanna rest your head in the heart of the West End, then it’d be a shame not to go a bit OTT, right? After all, who wants to come to buzzing, vibrant Theatreland and keep things on the DL? Nope: eccentricity, English decadence and a touch of quirky design are what you’re after, and St Martins Lane Hotel has this by the bucket load. Not to mention awesome opportunities for getting your drink on.
Swing by their cute terrace tucked to the side of one of the most bustling streets in the city and find an oasis of calm - even more chillaxed thanks to the TRIP takeover, where they’re serving up epic CBD cocktails such as the Elixir Of Long Life which mixes TRIP’s Elderflower & Mint CBD with Glenmorangie 10Y, Amaro Montenegro, Aperol and grapefruit. Just the sassy Spritz you need after hitting up Oxford Circus, especially when you treat yourself to one of the killer dishes on the terrace menu (go all out with the divine tempura soft shell crab).
Then there’s EllaMia, the LA-style perfectly pink cafe that, from Tuesday to Saturday, transforms into a chic late-night hotspot serving small dishes like stuffed peppers and marinated figs, and the kinda classic cocktails which will take you from evening to early-hours Soho partying. All that’s left to do is sink into one of the absurdly comfortable beds and say goodnight until morning beckons. When you’ve slept off the night’s antics, enjoy a coffee in the spacious bedroom, gazing out of the floor-to-ceiling windows at the pulsing city below. Ready to do it all again? We bet you are.
