For the hottest ticket away from the trackside action head to Amaranto at Four Seasons Hotel London at Park Lane, the dazzlingly chic cocktail bar with its floor to ceiling wine library and a bar menu of more than 70 classic and contemporary cocktails.
Away from the hustle and bustle of the city, choose a cool spot either in the clubby bar or on the pretty open air terrace, and think classic cocktails and spectacular martinis.
The Olympic Cocktail - Originated in 1922 by the famous Ciro’s nightclub in London and re-created in 2012 by the Amaranto mixologist team, The Olympic, a close relative of the Sidecar, is an orangey blend of cognac, Cointreau, fresh orange juice and orange bitters served in an old fashioned glass.
Gold Rush - A sparkling golden martini made with Cavalli vodka infused with gold flakes, Lillet Blanc and rhubarb liqueur poured over sugar soaked in Peychaud bitters and all topped up with Champagne.
Silver Shot - A cool shimmer of fresh cucumber muddled with gin, Kummel, lavender sugar and lemon juice and garnished with a sprig of scented lavender.
Bronze Booster - A heady martini mix of dry sherry, Cinzano Orancio, Rosso Antico vermouth, and orange bitters served with a twist of orange zest.
Going for Gold, Silver and Bronze in The Spa
Envisioned as the most dazzling urban spa in the city, The Spa at Four Seasons crowns the building with a spectacular rooftop retreat with eye popping views across London over the tree tops of Hyde Park to the historic skyline beyond.
With London abuzz with sporting fever this summer the time is just right to introduce a small but select range of Spa treatments especially created to match the sporting mood. Whether athlete or spectator everyone needs to take some time for a little relaxation. So Spa like an athlete and try a Gold, Silver or Bronze treatment – the only exercise involved here is choosing which one to go for, and everyone’s a winner.
Go for Gold Hydrating Ritual - Designed to have one glowing in gold, this intensely hydrating Omorovicza ritual includes a jasmine infused aromatherapy foot treatment to relax tired feet, an all over sugar scrub, a full body massage, a nourishing facial treatment and luxurious gold shimmering oil to illuminate one’s every move.
Silver Stone Revival - This Organic Pharmacy ritual begins with a peppermint back exfoliation to deeply cleanse the skin. A warm heat pack before and a full body sugar scrub prepare one for a massage with hot volcanic stones to relax deep muscular stress and tension. Guests will float out of this treatment.
Bronze Essentials - Two of the most popular essentials – a top to toe focusing either on the head, neck and shoulders or, on the feet and calves to soothe away aches and pains, and a Radiance ESPA facial to leave skin refreshed and radiant.
