New Opening: ‘The Perception’ Bar at W London (Leicester Square)

There’s no lack of watering holes around London to quench your thirst with a cocktail or three, but that doesn’t mean we couldn’t use another. Fortunately for our ever-wandering tastebuds W Hotel will soon be opening the doors of their new lounge bar, The Perception. Opening Friday 27th, you’ll be able to gaze down at the tourists of Leicester Square and Soho from frenetic urban interiors with a glamorous edge.

Disdain of those below is so much more satisfying with a good drink in hand, especially when said cocktail is the aptly named Enjoy the Show based on popcorn-infused Woodford Reserve. Paired with a pop-up dinner menu from Magnus Reid and a comprehensive music program, we may well have a new stop on our annual Soho bar crawl; www.wlondon.co.uk/w-hotel-bar
