Telephone:
020738373333

Info:
Snugg Lounge is a delectably hidden gem. Literally a stone`s throw away from the Brunswick Centre in Russel Square. The venue is one of London`s choicest. It oozes decadent boudoir chic class reminiscent of New York à la 1920s Scott Fitzgerald coupled with tastefully classy paintings with a Helmut Newtonesque edge to them. The décor, ambience and music are understatedly elegant, the staff surprisingly upbeat and attentive. I rocked down there with a few mates mid-week and I can truly testify that their mixologist`s cocktail mélange was probably one of the finest and freshest London has to offer. Their White Russian cocktails as well as a cranberry cocktail are to die for. Perfect to take a date or even a few work colleagues for after-work drinks. I can imagine this rocking venue hosting private parties, chic PR functions, glam photo shoots, corporate events, art & diplomatic functions even private fashion and jewelery viewings. I would highly recommend this upmarket cocktail lounge to anybody seeking to let their hair down and let off steam in a chillaxed, elegant, welcoming and artfully hospitable milieu.
