ARTESIAN, THE LANGHAM HOTEL
Designed by David Collins of Blue Bar fame, Artesian is a welcome recent addition to the Langham.
The décor, an unusual mix of Chinese-inspired sweeping lines, ornate geometrical chandeliers and modern scallop-edged purple leather sofas, gives the bar a misty, slightly fairytale quality, enhanced by the incredibly high ceilings and bowls of artistically-arranged flowers dotted about. The bar itself looks like an Emperor’s treasure chest; rows of gleaming bottles are topped by elegant pagoda ‘roofs’, giving guests plenty to gaze at as they order their beverages. Rum is the house specialty, the bar’s ‘Rum Ambassador’ having sourced over 50 varieties from far-flung destinations such as Guyana and Panama. Drink it neat or mixed in a delicious cocktail such as the Artesian Punch.VIP contact: Francesco Orefici, Bar Manager
