On the ground floor, the Mirror Room is a celebration of light with mirrors covering the roof and walls and a monochromatic chequered floor. The bar, which is open daily from 11am until 11pm, serves a full range of classic and innovative cocktails, fine wines and beers, plus a menu of light dishes.
There are a number of public areas within No.11 Cadogan Gardens, dedicated to providing guests with a place to unwind. One of these is the Library featuring magnificent mahogany bookshelves with an array of classic leather bound books and lush brocade upholstered armchairs and sofas. A modern flat-screen TV is cleverly concealed in an antique golden picture frame for guests who prefer this mode of entertainment, and a roaring log fire completes the room’s cosy charm.

The designer hotel caters for meetings and events for six to 60 people in a classic and refined setting.
