Art & Politics
After busy days exploring the city, guests can return to Conrad London St. James, which is a gallery itself, showcasing specially commissioned artworks each influenced by the hotel’s Westminster and St James vicinity, the historic and political heart of London. The political backdrop continues in Emmeline’s Lounge, named after the 19th century suffragette and political activist Emmeline Pankhurst. Here, the hotel’s Executive Pastry Chef, Diane and her team serve exquisite afternoon teas, with a tea sommelier on hand to help pick the perfect blend depending on guest’s preferences.
A Taste of Britain
The best of British is celebrated in the hotel’s Blue Boar Restaurant, where guests can look forward to delightful dinners or light lunches created by Head Chef Michael Riordan. Menus feature regional produce from farm-sourced Suffolk poultry to seafood from the Devon and Cornwall coast. Those looking to celebrate a special occasion or host business colleagues can book one of two private dining spaces, connected to the main restaurant with a striking floor-to-ceiling wine wall. Alternatively, intimate groups can sit at the High Table for exclusive culinary experiences from gin and tea tastings to food & wine pairing and mixology experiences.
Guests can join locals for a drink at the Blue Boar Bar, a sophisticated take on the traditional British pub, serving locally brewed craft beers and ales. Sit back over a nightcap taking in the Westminster scene and listen out for the occasional sound of the House of Commons Division Bell, rung eight minutes before every parliamentary vote to give any politicians lingering over a pint enough time to get back to cast their vote!
