The 380-room Langham London, located in Regent Street, has opened its terrace garden for the summer season, offering smokers a place to sample hand-picked cigars from Hunters and Frankau paired with rums from its Artesian bar, which is said to house the most extensive selection in the city.
Vintage tipples, such as Havana Club Maximo Extra Anejo, Mount Gay Tri-Centenary Anniversary Selection and Clement 1952, are also on the menu, and cigars include the likes of limited edition Cohiba Piramide, Por Larranaga ‘Regalias de Londres’ and Partagas Lusitanias 1999.
The open-air venue is open from 4pm to 11pm Monday-Saturday until the end of August, and visitors will also be able to order sharing platters of sushi or Arabic-style mezze, along with usual beverages like Pimm’s and Laurent Perrier champagne. There is also the option of hiring the terrace for private functions of up to 50 people.
In other news, the hotel is offering guests and visitors free digital audio tours of nearby Marylebone and Fitzrovia. The guides come pre-loaded on MP3 players and are accompanied by a map and information booklet.
