Sexy Hotel Bars in Europe
Written by Lena Harizopoulos
- PARIS/228 at Le Meurice hotel.
Situated at Rue Tivoli,everything oozes old school glamour when in Le Meurice, what’s more when sipping champagne in the low-lit bar 228 enjoying exceptional service while listening to jazzy tunes as you sink in the leather soft chairs.
Bar 228 is an ode to unpretentious, old school luxury. It’s in the white table cloths, the tuxudoed waiters, the maestro bar tenders.
- LONDON/ The Artesian at the Langham hotel
Voted best Bar in the world in 2015, the Artesian is indeed very cosmopolitan – although situated at a very touristic part of London – it manages to attract a great international crowd – both hotel clients and walk-in guests.
Its cocktails are monumental and consist great photografic material.
You ll be seeing bloggers, food critics, couples, mother daughter post shopping drinks etc.
Great for: a first drink on a first date.
The ambience is definitely sexy and cozy when not crowded.
- MILAN/ The Bulgari at the Bulgari Hotel
This is an all-time classic, as time goes by it becomes better and better, it is actually the easiest and most convenient spot to have a drink in town among a vava voom crowd.
The Bulgari Bar is a top people-watching place all day long.
The best scenario is to rent the top floor Bulgari hotel suite, check in the spa then dress to the nine and go down to the bar to enjoy a cigar at the cigar lounge or even sip a mimosa al fresco at the beautiful garden opposite the bar.
- ATHENS/’Alexander’s Bar at the Grande Bretagne
Alexander’s Bar is a pure majestic old-school hotel bar. Although Athens is not famous for its “hotel bar” culture, here you will enjoy warm ambience, top notch service, a very good wine list and bar food – actually the other day I enjoyed a great glass of Brunello di Montalcino – a rare thing for the wider Athenian bar scene since the Greeks still refuse to serve good quality, expensive wines by the glass.
For the cigar lovers, the Alexander cigar and spirit room feels like an oasis in the dessert of a city with very few civilsed spots to enjoy fine spirits along with a cigar or two.
