What do you get when you mix the masculine charm of an authentic Art Deco cigar lounge with specialized whiskey connoisseurs, a cognac bar and live jazz? You get the highly-anticipated new addition to Knightsbridge’s glamorous nightlife scene.
London’s Wellesley Hotel, designed by Fox Linton, has unveiled a sophisticated new destination; a mix of restored 1920s history and contemporary luxury. The Wellesley’s new Cigar Lounge boasts the UK’s largest bespoke humidor (for cigar aficionados, it’s worth a visit just to check out this beauty). Guests need look no further than the Wellesley’s Crystal Bar to find some of the finest whiskeys and cognacs available in London. Oenophiles haven’t been ignored either; the bar boasts an incomparable list of wines.
Completing the scene perfectly, the Jazz Room will host live performances every night by both established and up-and-coming artists. It looks like London finally has an answer to New York’s Oak Room at the Algonquin. So if you love either jazz, cigars, fine liquors, wine, or all of the above, the Wellesley is sure to impress!
