    Time Out Says…

    Access is through a concealed door behind the hotel's tea counter, and tea features across the cocktail list. Signatures include a gin, peach and bergamot smash (Beefeater gin, peach liqueur, Earl Grey tea and fresh mint), a Scotch, coconut and green tea old fashioned, and a negroni infused with pine needle tea. Classics range from house martinis and manhattans to a cognac sazerac made with Hennessy Fine de Cognac and La Fee absinthe.
