One Aldwych is part of the following Travel Ideas:
"Film and Fizz nights at the terribly glamorous One Aldwych close to Covent Garden are seriously fun any time of year but make a wonderfully soppy surprise on February 14. Tuck into a three-course meal at the restaurant Indigo courtesy of fabulous chef Dominic Teague (who’s USP is his love of “foraged foods and forgotten flavours – we love) then slink off to the hotel’s ritzy private cinema where you will be handed a chilled glass of Lallier Grande Réserve as you settle down to a good movie. They’ve gone all mushy this Valentine’s and are screening David Lean’s Oscar-winning romantic weepy Dr Zhivago – the perfect setting for a cuddle. All for £55 a head. Brownie points for the rest of the year, I’d say…"
"Pedro Paulo is the Lobby Bar manager at One Aldwych in the Strand and quite the mixology showman. I will never forget the vertiginous skydive through which he poured a generous measure of No3 Dry Gin in order to aerate it. If you’re fortunate enough to have Pedro bringing his shiny new mixing trolley to your table at One Aldwych, you are in for a quite a spectacle. I asked for my usual gin martini but Pedro wanted me to try a martini made with Grey Goose Vodka first. It was interesting but strangely sweet, perhaps the result of his using sherry instead of vermouth. After a decent interval I reminded Pedro that I really wanted a dry gin martini tonight and so he brought out No3, a gin distilled to a recipe by Berry Bros. of St James. This, in Pedro’s opinion, is the real London Dry Gin. With it he used Noilly Prat as the vermouth, pouring it over ice and then tipping everything out to leave just a trace in the chilled glass. He then poured in what he called “a healthy measure” of well stirred No3 Gin from a great height. The drink was then given a squeeze of lemon peel and garnished with both lemon and olive in a break with tradition. If you haven’t stayed at One Aldwych I’d strongly recommend this stylish London hotel in its prime position facing across Waterloo Bridge. I’d strongly recommend its bar too."
"London: Don’t miss the spectacular parade of floats on February 22 that will progress from Duncannon Street to Shaftesbury Avenue complete with Chinese lions and huge dragon teams. Expect free performances from 12 o’clock noon with dance, music, martial arts and acrobatics aplenty. If you base yourself in Trafalgar Square, you will see the Chen brothers’ Flying Lion dance and afterwards a whole heap of acts from visiting artists who have flown over from the homeland. This is one of the capital’s biggest outdoor celebrations, with more acts on in Charing Cross Road, Leicester Square and Chinatown. Stay: It’s an easy stroll from the action to Covent Garden where your haven from the madness is One Aldwych. This grand Edwardian former home to the Morning Post and Lloyds Bank oozes class. Book a corner suite for stunning views over Waterloo Bridge and treat yourself in the informal Indigo restaurant which sits high over the hustle bustle of the Lobby bar."
"Covent Garden’s shops are wonderfully frivolous. Here’s where you’ll find Penhaligon’s soaps and Hope & Greenwood’s traditional sweetshop and all those little things you never knew you needed in the market’s North and South halls. Two minutes’ walk downhill from the Garden you’ll also find one of London's best hotels for recuperating. One Aldwych is a beautiful conversion of the old Morning Post newspaper offices from 1907 - with a big blue swimming pool in the basement where printing presses used to run. Although the bedrooms are comfy, and some have superb views over Waterloo Bridge, its real treasure is Lounge at One, a guests-only hideaway tucked behind some unobtrusive white panelling. Here is an oasis of sofas, quiet service and a library of art and design books curated by designer Paul Smith, a neighbour of One Aldwych."
"The Lobby Bar at One Aldwych. Named as one of the best hotel bars in the world by the Sunday Telegraph, the effortlessly cool Lobby Bar is the perfect place to indulge in sugar and spice and all things nice this Christmas. We love their mouth-watering Christmas tree covered in decorative gingerbread men. Book in for their Sugar and Spice afternoon tea which includes winter warmers like a mulled wine shot, eggnog mouse and rich cranberry scones. Afterwards check out their hot cocktails, with concoctions like hot apple strudel and mulled ginger and pear."
