Ditch all the stuffy royal hoopla and embrace Londonâ€™s punk rock history instead at the Metropolitan London. Through the beginning of May the Met Bar will be offering an â€œAn-Tea Establishmentâ€ afternoon tea just in time to save you from monarchy overload â€“ a quintessential British tea with a funky Metropolitan twist. Cheeky dishes include the â€œQuiche a la Fergieâ€ along with reimagined classics like no-bread cucumber sandwiches. Rhubarb and custard cupcakes are topped with iconic slogans and images to capture the feeling of the era and if tea isnâ€™t quite strong enough, try the Sex Pistol-inspired cocktail â€œGod Save The Queen,â€ and do a little head banging to the punk rock playlist drifting from the speakers.Â If you can spend the night, however, even better. The clean, modern design and Zen-like atmosphere at The Met are a distinctly new take on the classic British hotel experience – and thereâ€™s the bonus of everything youâ€™d expect in a five-star hotel without any of the unnecessary fuss and pomp.Â It’s an antidote to the city, overlooking Hyde Park.Â Plus, I love a hotel where everything is monogrammed with my initials.
