Often associated with boring business trips, it’s no wonder hotel bars get a bad rap. But that’s set to change with a flurry of new boutique bars opening nationwide.

In bucks, check out The Garden Bar at Stoke Place. Housed in the 17th century house, this chic countryside get away is ideal for ladies(of the manor) who want to curl up on the sofa with a cocktail.

Or try Layla in Liverpool – a five star boutique hotel created out of restored 1920’s buildings – for it’s NY – style bar, Madison’s.

We’re also counting down till the grand opening of The Wellesley, Knightsbridge, later in the year – a prohibition – style Jazz Room? We’re never checking out.
