If you want to impress someone then you take them to a hotel bar – everyone loves a hotel bar. But, if you want to really
impress someone then you take them to the hotel bar that inspired the great James Bond’s signature martini.
Regularly frequented by 007’s creator Ian Fleming (who liked a drink), the Martini at Dukes Bar at Dukes Hotel is said to have inspired the great spy’s trademark drink order, ‘Shaken, not stirred’. So, it is every right-minded Londoner’s duty to go to Duke’s and order the same drink in the effortlessly stylish, timelessly suave bar.
