W is for WOW!

We decadently "sashayed" into disco-ball cloud heaven! The Writers lounge in the W Hotel, Leicester Square; a glamorous haven of iconic and innovative design.
Approaching the hotel at night, it gives the first hint of the interior sensory feast that beckons. The building is shrouded in a veil of glass that changes colour according to the time of day like a grand electronic art work. Designed by the London architects Jestico & Whiles and a Dutch interior design agency, Concrete, the hotel opened earlier this year.
Traditional and contemporary materials sit alongside comfortable & cutting edge design. The W lounge houses shelves of the latest hip coffee books, erotic plates, designer bicycles and serves a cool “Lady Chatterley” cocktail! After indulging, I can’t recall much more…but just know that I will be returning to this dazzling gem!
