Gothic Bar is the kind of place where you could find a supermodel and a vampire cosied up on one of the velvet green sofas, drinking champagne together. It’s made for the evening, when the heavy, red curtains are pulled to and the dim, yellow light from lamps throw shadows against the walls. It’s part Venetian mansion, with ornate columns and tapestry-like carpets, and part smoking room of the world’s richest person. Drinking at the King’s Cross bar, inside the St. Pancras Renaissance Hotel, will make you feel your most bewitching, monied self. The cocktails are inventive—infused with chipotle, sage leaf, and hawthorn—and excellent, particularly their crisp, clean signature martini. Come for an extra special occasion or anytime you want to sink three absinthes and cosplay as Oscar Wilde. There is a food menu but we suggest going next door to the equally decadent The Midland Grand Dining Room for French classics.
