Hotel bars are rubbish, right? Well, yeah, a lot of them are, but the one at the Ham Yard hotel is definitely not. The bar at the Ham Yard Hotel is one of most photogenic ones in town, and besides a vibe that feels more like a member’s club than a bar that’s open to the public, it’s an excellent place for strong drinks and people watching. It can feel a bit see-and-be-seen, but the trade off tends to be worth it, especially if you’re dropping in for a few drinks and want a reliable spot before heading off to dinner later.
