How often do you go to a bar where the bouncer is stationed next to a gramophone and indulging his own taste for 1920s music? At Alexander Bar, the intrigue doesn't stop there. The red velvet drapes; the eclectic, vintage furniture; and the jazzy, soulful background tunes radiate a downplayed, French feel. Then there are the rotary telephones on every table: You can use them to call the barman, another patron, and even BBC news! That, and Alexander's wine library, will entice you to linger for hours — although the upstairs theatre might lure you away with its variety of intimate poetry readings and drama productions. Alexander Bar (and theatre): a one-of-a-kind watering hole.
