The 10 Best Hotel Bars in the World

End your night with the perfect nightcap

Friday, January 01, 2010

1. Connaught Bar at the Connaught, London
With its black marble, exotic leather, and shimmering silver accents, this ritzy new parlor bar raises a defiant question: What is this "downturn" you speak of? The brazen opulence is, in fact, the genius of the place. After a round or two of flawless juleps laced with herbal Fernet-Branca, a sense of well-heeled contentment washes over you, drowning the day's stresses in all that is shiny and sexy.
