Last weekend, I popped into Blakes Hotel’s bar to use my Champagne For Life card.

I’d never been to Blakes before and I loved what I’d discovered:

The intimate bar, which sits in the hotel’s basement and adjoins the restaurant is tastefully stylish. The design is Chinese influenced.

We were there on a Sunday afternoon, so it was pretty quiet. But apparently, on a Thursday, Friday and Saturday night (especially), the whole place is rocking.

That afternoon I had a couple of glasses of champagne:

But I hear Blakes also make a delish Chinese Mojito. This is just one reason to return. The end of week party vibe as well as the restaurant are a couple more!
