Celebrations! I can't think of a better place than the Artesian Bar at London's Langham Hotel. It's swanky and sophisticated but very original and artistically appealing at the same time. The bar obviously has pride of place with its elegantly curved pagoda tiers that look like it could have been modelled after the forbidden palace in Beijing or the Angkor Wat in Cambodia. Described as 'Chinese Chippendale', its a mix of influences that will take your breath away with its beauty and grandeur. Set against an ornate wall panelling inset with silver-leaf bevelled mirrors, you can sit at the marble bar counter and bask reflectively in its majestic shadow. Complimented with broodingly modern colours of deep mulberry and muted lilac, its the perfect place for drinks, sweet treats and harmless gossip with girlfriends. Feeling indulgent? Opt for the caviar menu brought 'round with a selection of Vodkas served crisp and cold for the ultimate in post-shopping luxury. Santé !
