The “Covent Garden Hotel” is a pretty “boutique” hotel located in the heart of the district of Shaftesbury, more precisely, Seven Dials
Between Holborn, Leicester Square and Charing Cross, and is just a short walk to the Royal Opera House, Soho and just about twenty minutes by walk for the “city”, the hearth of the economic business centre.
“Brasserie Max” is always a lovely place to stop at and My favourite spot is at the bar, where I often have the pleasure to meet my former colleague of good old times, Simone. He is the Head Bartender, mixing up delicious drinks, a range of perfectly mixed cocktails and carefully selected wines and spirits. You can choose to accompany drinks with a selection of tapas, platters and larger dishes from the bar menu. However it was not my dinner time so I decided to drink some of the bartender creations, and he made me proud of my choice, with his signature twists on classic Gimlets, Negroni with sherry cask twist and finally a non alcoholic cocktail with Seedlip (the first non alcoholic distilled drink).
