The hotel offers 3 fabulous bars and restaurants for guests to enjoy, including the gorgeous Dalloway Terrace, which will be transformed into a gorgeous winter wonderland to mark the changing season. For sophisticated cocktails, the chic Coral Room (designed by interiors maestro Martin Brudnizki) is on hand, or head underground to the atmospheric Bloomsbury Club Bar: a cool destination for late night drinks.
Visitors will be spoilt for choice with the array of award-winning shows and entertainment on offer throughout the area. Head to the Royal Opera House for an evening of spellbinding ballet performances, or welcome in the festive spirit early with ice skating at Somerset House (opening 13th November).
If you’re staying at…The Marylebone
Strolling through the lanes of Marylebone Village is a charming way to spend an autumn afternoon. Luxury boutiques, independent cafes and bars line the streets, with plenty of delicious dining opportunities available, including the buzzing 108 Brasserie at The Marylebone. Indulge in seasonal dishes or stop by at the 108 Pantry for a traditionally English Cream Tea, served from midday until 6pm daily.
