    VIBE

    A see-and-be-seen crowd presses into the long, narrow bar tucked behind the main dining room of Hakkasan. The bar, like the restaurant, is modern, Oriental, and sleek. The clientele is as hot as the décor, and despite no longer being new, it is still one of the hottest spots in London which may account for the amazingly difficult door policy.

    WHAT WE WOULD WEAR

    Stylish and chic; sexy dress; that brand new pair of Prada heels

    GO HERE WITH

    Hot date; a couple of friends

    CROWD

    Royalty supposedly comes to dine and drink here. Not surprising as this is a “beautiful people” haven.

    WHY WE LIKE IT

    Hot scene with wicked cocktails. And who doesn’t love a little eye candy?

    WHAT WE WOULD CHANGE

    Narrow space; get a seat at the bar if you can.

    GOOD TO KNOW

    Housed within the restaurant Hakkasan, Ling Ling runs the length of the restaurant. Many of the customers have either just dined or are waiting to dine at the restaurant, but in no way does that mean there is anything secondary about the bar; their deliciously sinful drinks are a draw in their own right. To get to these drinks though can be a challenge: the door policy is formidable. Your best bet for getting in? Book a table at Hakkasan; trust us, this is a double-win.
