About this space

With its mahogany paneling, wall of books, and open fireplace, the feeling here is that of stepping back in time into a luxurious salon. The perfect space to enjoy great company and perhaps an even greater cocktail.

The Raines Law Room at The William is a bespoke & craft cocktail bar with a chic retro library vibe within The William hotel.
