What they say:

On the site of the former St John Hotel, One Leicester Square, and its accompanying bar and restaurant, is the latest addition to the stylish Unlisted Collection hotel chain. Focusing on traditional British cuisine in understated, muted grey interiors, the venue aims to be an unpretentious and welcoming addition to the already amazing range of London hotel bars for local workers and guests in equal measure.

What we say:

Located in the midst of some of the best Leicester Square bars, the minimalist softly lit interior of One Leicester Street is a welcome retreat from the buzz of Chinatown. Head chef, Tom Harris previously won a Michelin star for his last restaurant so great British cuisine is available, as well as brilliant drinks from the extensive cocktail list. Well worth checking out.
