Bassoon Bar But With a Piano

Founded by the Pisani family of Malta, it follows that the Corinthia hotel has a general air of sumptuousness. Despite the fact that the board is comprised of Libyan Government and the Libyan Arab Foreign Investment Company (Lafico) is a major investor in the hotel, we are apparently told, the day-to-day operations of the hotel are not affected and it seems not either.

The bar itself, designed by David Collins, is made up of a 7 metre grand piano which can actually be played (we declined the offer) although it was somewhat disappointing that there wasn’t a designated person tapping away on the keys as there often are in these places. Perhaps we came at the wrong time for this. Not sure I personally went for the art hung on the walls, but the overall effect worked well together.

The cocktail menu is quite vast, offering a range of ‘classic and bespoke’ cocktails. All these come with a small tower of snacks – chilli rice crackers, mixed salted nuts and olives although on the back of the menu was an intriguing chocolate menu, explaining that as the cocoa was mixed with water, it was really light. Something to be tried another time!

There are definitely a few interesting observations about the place. When I enquired about the Kings Speech cocktail being in relation to the film, I was told that the cocktail was indeed named after what was served at the premiere after party. The actual bar is a sweet shop for cocktail aficionados, crammed with a multitude of different bottles to mix each drink to perfection (worth the wait) – with a couple of barrels of the house vermouth perched atop which we were offered a taste of - out of the most exquisite mini silver tumblers may I add. Perhaps Vermouth will become one of the next trends to be revived?
