This advert is sooo cute!
Lanky girl was lucky enough to go an see a preview of new film Morning Glory last night.
Morning Glory features, Harrison Ford, Diane Keaton and Rachel McAdams. I will do a proper review later but you can watch the trailer below.
Morning opens in cinemas in the UK today!
This post I guess covers yesterday and today, unless I come up with something interesting to do tonight…
My ideal night out is a night where spontaneously you end up visiting places that you haven’t been before.I met up with my friend Jay after Uni yesterday for catch up drinks (can’t believe its been five months!). Anyway Jay’s usual haunting ground is Sloane Square. He has a penchant for “Olde english” pubs which he often moans have mostly closed down or become chains in London. So I was surprised when he suggested we meet at Green Park. Getting there almost 45 mins late (thanks TFL) he told me he was at The Mayfair Hotel Bar. Getting there, the bar was packed full of glamorous looking females (possibly gold diggers) being chatted up by middle-aged men in suits. Opposite The Nobu, The Mayfair Bar is a well know celebrity haunt and the few times I’ve been there, there always seems to be some Z list celebrity hanging out there (apparently I had just missed Kerry Katona…yawn). The cocktails are of a high standard which is to be expected of a 5 star hotel but don’t expect to get good service on a friday night as it will be impossible to get anywhere to sit unless you go early. Hence why Jay and I decided that it would be better to try somewhere less busy.
Not knowing where to go we decided to amble on down Berkeley Street and see if we could find one of the “olde english pubs. After walking for about 15 mins and not seeing any pubs we stumbled on The Connaught Hotel. It being A luxury 5 star establishment we were worried that we would be treated with disdain as we were dressed in jeans but our fears were soon put to rest as the friendly doormen welcomed us in. When you arrive inside The Connaught you really catch your breath at how beautiful it is. Tastefully decorated with Italian marble floors, leather chairs, perfume in the air and expertly trained staff this place screams luxury. The Connaught has two bars The Coburg and The Connaught and is also home to the two Michelin starred restaurant Hélène Darroze . We found ourselves in The Coburg which was warm, small and intimate. The crowd in there was an eclectic mix of businessmen, American tourists, older couples and a group of teeny boppers. As with The Mayfair it was busy but not intimidating so. We were able to secure seats at the bar and after 20 mins we were told by a waiter that seats had become available near the window. How is that for service! With our drinks we were served complimentary crisps, olives and mini napkins. I was surprised how unpretentious and relaxed the atmosphere was in there for such a high-class hotel. Okay so the drinks were on the expensive side. Cocktails go for around 12 pounds and it was 8 pounds for a glass of Sauvignon. If your pockets are light (like mine) you should possibly save your visit for a special night out or if you want to impress your date. Ah the toilets! I don’t think I have ever seen more beautiful toilets! Marble floored, scented with perfume, fresh flowers and an attendant who presented you with a fresh towel to dry your hands. To cap it off at the end of the night I accidentally left my umbrella and when we got half way down the road we turned around to see that were being chased by a lovely waitress who brought it to me. I think I am going to convince Mr B to take me here for our next culinary adventure.
