The Purple Bar at the Sanderson Hotel
Once you’ve navigated the acid trip that is the Sanderson’s lobby, with its surrealist flourishes and its glamorously eerie vibe, you’ll find yourself faced with a delicious choice. First, the famous Long Bar, with its stylish insouciance and unabashedly voyeuristic atmosphere. Or, you can opt for a spot at the Purple Bar, which you’ll know about because you’ll have booked ahead for a spot here.
The opulent, intimately sexy antithesis to the coolly breezy and Spartan glamour of its nearby sister, the Purple Bar delivers a one-two with its superior service and atmosphere, as well as it’s beautifully crafted cocktails. Limited to just 30 individuals, the noise level never rises above a discreet buzz and the unhurried bar staff are both courteous and warm – a welcome departure from the attitude of similarly poised bars. Atmosphere is both relaxed but formal, and fellow clientele are expensively-clad and gorgeous. Shrinking violets need not apply.
Opening times: Monday - Saturday: 18:00 - 03:00, Sunday: 18:00 - 24:00
