London on Christmas Day
Coburg bar at The Connaught
The Connaught, Carlos Place, London, W1K 2AL
Mon 8am-11pm Tue-Sat 8am-1am Sun 8am-11pm
This is the Connaught's lesser-known cocktail bar but is equally as wonderful, and on Christmas Day, is perhaps even a notch better. It'll be a sleepy day in this richly decorated bar where the deep armchairs are flanked by a cosy fire place, making it the ideal setting to relax and relish in your food coma. Order a stiff drink, something brown and stirred down and sip on a delight Christmas cocktail. It's cosy, intimate and going to get boozy.
Beaufort Bar at The Savoy
The Savoy Hotel, Carting Lane, London, WC2R 0EU
Mon-Sat 5pm-1am Sun CLOSED
The Savoy on Christmas Day is a place of quiet luxury and we're headed for the dark and luxurious Beaufort Bar. Disregard the opening hours above, this bar will only be open from 11.30pm-7pm on the 25th, which suits us just just fine. Normally we try and snag one of the few seats at the bar but today it's Christmas and we're headed for a relaxing armchair and something strong and whisky-based. Let the hours slide by as you enjoy the well-made cocktails and the dark gilded room. Before you completely fall asleep we've one last stop to make. Which means heading out the Thames-side exit and walking across the river - a magical site on Christmas Night.
Mondrian Hotel, 22 Upper Ground, London, SE1 9PD
Mon-Thu 4pm-1am Fri-Sat Midday-1.30am Sun Midday-12.30am
Those floor-to-ceiling windows gazing out to St Paul's Cathedral are the absolute cherry on the cake for this Christmas Tour. Crisp and deep and even indeed. We're starting with something enlivening from their botany-themed menu and seeking more bone-relaxing armchairs as we enjoy the last few hours of Christmas. If you've found your stomach slowly emptying over the evening then order a few snacks before staggering to Blackfriars for that uber home. Merry Christmas.
