The Connaught

The Connaught

Hidden away in Carlos Place, a quiet corner steps from Oxford Street, this old-school property just unveiled a modern wing that includes an Aman Spa, and water features by Japanese architect Tadao Ando. What we loved Watching as the perfect martini – Old Tom gin with orange curaçao, Boker’s bitters and a dash of sugar – is mixed tableside from the Connaught Bar’s black-lacquered martini trolley. If you only have one night Save room for tea: The new afternoon menu is inspired by celebrities’ favourite childhood cakes, like Christian Louboutin’s Black Forest gâteau (fresh scones and 16 kinds of homemade jam are still on offer). Bonus La Petite Maison, one of the city’s top lunch spots thanks to the pissaladière, is a two-minute walk from the hotel.
