The dark nights have set in and the snow has started falling but Christmas is the time for festive fun with friends. So pull on those boots, dig out that scarf and get ready to party. My essential guide to the best hotel bars for seasonal gatherings in London reveals everything from the best Christmas cocktails to gingerbread hotels and Christmas trees and will have you warmed up with a mulled wine in no time.
Corinthia Hotel London

Bassoon Bar at The Corinthia. If Christmas shopping, turkey stuffing and in-laws have you at the end of your tether then head to Bassoon Bar at The Corinthia and restore your batteries with their delicious festive cocktail, The 25th Carol. The intriguing concoction fuses vanilla Bourbon, gingerbread liquor, vermouth and egg white and comes artfully garnished with a cinnamon stick, dehydrated orange and various other zesty additions. A stone's throw from Covent Garden and Mayfair, it's the perfect place for a festive refuel between shops.

The Milestone Hotel

Stables Bar at Milestone Hotel. Awarded the title of the UK's Best Small Hotel, Milestone has housed many colourful characters over the years, from the mistress of James II to a man who believed he was Shakespeare's grandson. In 1830 it even became a private asylum, today however it is frequented by west London ladies-who-lunch rather than lunatics. With striking views across Hyde Park and Kensington Palace it oozes a Victorian English charm and right now it is serving up an indulgent seasonal afternoon tea featuring mini Christmas cakes and of course a glass of bubbly.
