London Cocktail Bar's Intriguing New Design Reminiscent of Mayfair's Golden Era

The Luggage Room Rediscovers 'Bentley Corner' With Alluring Ambience, Fine Flavours

LONDON--(Marketwire - Feb 12, 2013) -  Far from being just another hotel lounge, the exciting new Luggage Room Bar in London takes guests on a journey of discovery to the glamorous Golden Era of 1920s Mayfair.

Once a gathering place of the revelling Bentley Boys, this discerning new drinking destination resonates with stylish flavours reminiscent of the time when young aristocrats embellished their claim to fame inside their favoured establishment on Grosvenor Square's "Bentley Corner." Nearly a century later, this London cocktail bar's alluring ambience and fine drinks define this quiet corner in the heart of historic Mayfair, telling the tales of days gone by through its elaborate new interior completed by the new Fabled Studio based in Clerkenwell, East London.

Making their way into The Luggage Room through an engraved stone doorway of what was once the original storage spot for travel bags and trunks of travellers in and out of Grosvenor Square hotels and Mayfair establishments, guests are transported to the intimate surroundings where carefully crafted drinks and fine ales are the start to a delightful experience.

Creating a menu of classic cobblers, martinis and punches reflective of London's high-society energy, Bar Manager Abdulai Kpekawa and his select crew of bartenders welcome patrons to linger over their favourite drinks and brews while reminiscing amidst the detailed interior inspired by travel trunks and the remarkable, but short-lived, Bentley motor car. Custom-made wine cabinets and furniture featuring hand-printed Chiogami paper inserts with artist monogrammed initials of the Bentley Boys are all part of the stylish interiors found inside this exciting new pub.

Drinks offered inside this premier choice among cocktail bars in London include an exquisite selection of heritage cocktails crafted by the creative team of bartenders who serve the combination of freshly squeezed juices and fine spirits in authentic period glassware for a true reflection of The Luggage Room's past. Also included on the long list of drinks is the bar's signature Luggage Cocktail, a decadent mix of vodka, herbs, Campari and elderflower theatrically served in the pub's own Bentley Cup.

Located inside the London Marriott Hotel Grosvenor Square, one of the most prominent modern hotels in London, The Luggage Room is open daily from 5 p.m. to 2 a.m.
