We tried the New York, New York and La Dolce Vita cocktails in the stylish setting of The Lobby Bar.
New York, New York (chosen by my husband) was an ultra refreshing citrus drink, it smelt so good the scent floated towards us as it was brought to our table. Sleek, sophisticated and impressive.
La Dolce Vita (my choice) was predictably a glamorously, sweet alcoholic affair that lived up to my expectations. Served in an unusual cat glass this was ostentation at its finest.
Priced at £13 each, the limited edition cocktail menu will be available for the duration of the fashion month, from the start of New York Fashion Week on 4th September until the end of Paris Fashion Week on 2nd October.
