Sorry to all my ‘Fans?!?’ I haven’t posted anything lately as Xmas has got in the way. However, I have been out and about so expect a rush of activity.
One of the best places I’ve been to is the Lobby Bar atNo 1 Aldwych on the edge of Covent garden – sorry no pics as they haven’t sent me any.The ramp in is a little steep but the doorman is very helpful. The Bar is extremely spacious so there’s plenty of room for wheelchairs and the floor is smooth for stick users. The decor and feel of the place is fashionable and welcoming. There is a real mix of people from business types to young trendy arty folk. I have to mention the flower arrangements as they are always spectacular and the current Xmas decorations don’t disappoint – you can tell I like this bar a lot.
As if that’s not enough, the cocktails are great and the bar snacks are delicious and inventive – I can recommend any Champagne cocktail and my Niece loves the Apple Martinis! The mini Beef Wellington and the Goujons of Pollock with chips are all very tasty. I also have the Crudites to make up for all the gluttony. A new addition is the Afternoon Tea which looks lovely but I have yet to give it a try.
The final thing that makes this place special is the disabled toilet. Although It’s one floor down in the lift, the ease of access means I don’t need a helper to get there. Everything is right – the bars are in the right place, it has lovely soap and towels, it’s always clean and the mirror can be seen in a wheelchair and is very ‘forgiving’!
I’ve been a regular visitor here for many years and I can always be sure of a good time, full marks from me!
