Where shall we meet?: The Ferrari Bar, Hyde Park Hotel
Wednesday 13 July 1994
The reassuringly unstylish air and the plump, chintzy sofas make this a good place to cosset a maiden aunt in town for the day - taxi drivers always know where hotels are and besides, where else can the old girl choose between four brands of gin? An unimaginative but very sound selection of nibbles (crisps, mixed nuts, pistachios and cheeselets) accompany your Beefeater and tonic (pounds 4.80) or glass of wine (pounds 3.50).
The Ferrari Bar, Hyde Park Hotel, 66 Knightsbridge SW1 (071-235 2000).
Tomorrow: The Waldorf Hotel, Aldwych WC2.
