Artesian at the Langham Hotel: Hot New Bars in London

June 7, 2007 By:Mary Winston Nicklin

Artesian Bar at the Langham Hotel Taking a cue from Fodor's Hot List, we're focusing our gaze across the pond at the London Langham Hotel's glamorous new bar, Artesian. Designed by David Collins Studio, this chic new hot spot is decked out in embossed leather seats, a lilac marble bar, timber chandeliers, and ornate, mirrored wall paneling. The cocktail menu is simply luxurious, with lots of delicious drinks specializing in rum. (Try the Hot Buttered Rum, a relaxing, buttery drink served with Myer's rum, clove-infused apricot brandy, hot water, cloves, and a spoonful of homemade cream.) Here, the creative mixologists craft timeless classics and Artesian signature cocktails, like the Good Night Chihuahua, a twist in the seminal Tommy's Margarita recipe, using Sotol Reposado, homemade chamomile syrup and fresh lime juice, served on the rocks. But as Fodor's points out, "if tongues are wagging over Artesian, it's not because of the décor or the celebrity guests, it's because of the "energized" ice cubes: they're denser and colder than most, so cocktails stay potent longer." Talk about indulgence.
