About this room
Set behind the façade of a boutique tea counter and a secret golden hand-shaped handle is Blind Spot at St Martins Lane, a late-night speakeasy that offers guests bespoke and signature cocktails bursting with flavours influenced by the British Empire and its ancient tea trade. The bar is brought to life throughout the week with a programme of live music and events.
Kick the week off in style with Manhattan Mondays, where beginners and cocktail connoisseurs alike can utilise the custom-made Manhattan ordering system to individualise and innovate the well-loved classic. On Tuesdays Live Spot showcases some of London’s hottest Jazz and Swing acts, heading into mid-week with up tempo electronic and dance DJ residencies from Amazonica, Lou Hayter and Aaron Francis Walker on Wednesdays through to Saturdays lasting until the early hours.
A mouth-watering menu of sweet and savory British colonial-style snacks to pair with the cocktails is also available throughout the night, including a Mini Cubano Sandwich, Crispy Chilli Beef Sliders and Roast Pork Belly Hirata Steamed Buns. Blind Spot offers modern British elegance, carefully shadowed by day and illuminated by the energy of the city at night. The perfect central London spot for a pre-dinner drink, a night of entertainment or an after party nightcap and nibble.

Located in the bustling Theatre district in London’s Covent Garden, St Martins Lane is a dramatic and daring evolution on English luxury. This boutique hotel retains all the youthful, unexpected charm of a London hideaway, at the very heart of the energetic West End. St Martins Lane is truly a hidden gem.
Guests can begin their journey in the Den, a modern gathering place and decompression zone. Situated just off the lobby, the Den is the perfect place to enjoy afternoon tea or sip a Gin and Tonic. The décor is warm and sophisticated with a tongue-in-cheek British flair – even the art on the walls is irreverent, animating the space with larger-than-life portraits and visual puns.
At the renowned Asia de Cuba restaurant, concept chef Luis Pous joins restaurateur Jeffrey Chodorow to offer a dynamic Latin-Asian fusion menu in an inspiring space. Guests can explore all the unpredictable delights of London. At night, guests will find a hidden entrance to Blind Spot, an innovative cocktail bar, behind the tea counter’s posh façade. Blind Spot is a golden cocktail sanctuary designed like a modern hunting lodge and inspired by the colours and aromas of exotic tea leaves.
During your stay, you can also enjoy an invigorating workout at Gymbox Covent Garden, London’s most unorthodox fitness experience or go for a striking new look at London's finest hairdressers at the neighbouring Jones & Payne salon. Luxurious treatments and innovative vision make this salon a place of new beginnings and creative expression. Just steps from Trafalgar Square, St Martins Lane is ideally located for special occasions, weekend breaks or business travel.
