London – Reported by Elite Traveler, the private jet lifestyle magazine
Hoping for a hot Olympic summer, Corinthia Hotel London has opened The Courtyard for outdoor drinks and light meals. Set in the heart of the hotel, the new crescent-shaped space serves cocktails and champagne, as well as breakfast, oysters and afternoon tea.
The cocktail list features the Bloom Clover Club made with chamomile tincture and raspberry purée, the rum-based Planters Punch and the Vesper Martini, while the less cocktail-inclined can enjoy a range of cigars and liqueurs.
Pastry chef Claire Clark, MBE and Executive Head Chef Garry Hollihead prepares traditional afternoon teas, with sweet and savory treats, a selection of teas from the Tea Palace menu and Laurent-Perrier Champagne.
Guests dining at Massimo Restaurant, the Oyster Bar or The Northall are able to retire to The Courtyard for a digestif, with fire places at either end to warm the cooler nights. The breakfast menu includes tea and coffee, fresh pastries and eggs Benedict.
Housed in a Victorian building, Corinthia Hotel London comprises 294 rooms—including 36 suites and seven penthouses—Massimo Restaurant & Oyster Bar, The Northall (for British fare throughout the day), and the musically inspired Bassoon Bar. Other amenities include the four-floor flagship ESPA Life at Corinthia, and meeting/media rooms with recording, mixing and broadcasting facilities.
Corinthia London is the ninth of Corinthia Hotels’ collection of five-star hotels founded by the Pisani family of Malta.
