New Years Eve at The Lanesborough hotel was a sophisticated place to welcome the new year. Situated between Knightsbridge, Hyde Park and Mayfair The Lanesborough is home to the Michelin-starred Céleste restaurant and boasts an award-winning afternoon tea service.
The hotel re-opened in 2015 after completion of an entire restoration back to its original Georgian splendour. The five-star hotel is in a converted Greek Regency building by William Wilkins and home to 93 luxurious suites and bedrooms, the best bedrooms look out on to Piccadilly and Hyde Park. Outside,
The Library Bar, one of London’s best cigar and Cognac lounges is where we chose to see in the new year! Fashioning the Great Gatsby era, we enjoyed electro jazz and swing sounds from resident DJ Stef Manni. The drink of choice was Champagne Taittinger, we also enjoyed light bites from the bar menu. DJ Steff chose some groovy tunes including George Michael ‘Gotta Have Faith’ to see us into 2017, a perfect choice!
