…then please let it be at The Waiting Room Bar in Crown. I think when I originally heard this bar described as somewhere one might slip into a Cary Grant kind of mood or perhaps find a look a like I know this was a bar I would become friends with.

To escape the 40* day on Monday last week the gang an I retreated into the air conditioned Mecca that is Crown for lunch, movie, shopping and drinks.

The Waiting Room bar was the perfect place to sip champagne and pretended we were far more glamorous than four slightly overheated girls a little the worse for wear.

The Waiting Room

The Waiting Room is tucked to the side of the Crown Towers Lobby and is all about deep colors, rich fabrics and reflective surfaces. If were rich I would happily apply much of their design aesthetic to my ver own little home. The bar begins “outside” in the lobby for those who like to people watch and continues inside in a long room and with a t-section at the rear which looks like it would work well for a private booking. So glamorous.

We grabbed a table at the far end but in the inside section and perused the menus. Dino and I went with a nice sparkling wine while Bean headed for the white and Lamb went with a bloody Mary. We also ordered a bowl of fries to share that despite the waitresses warning proved a perfect amount for the four of us to share. The menu also looked yummy and I introvert tempted by the high tea they are advertising. Perhaps amother visit will need to be on the list. All in the name of good blogging of course.

Our drinks came out promptly the champagne (do let me get away with calling it that, doesn’t  it sound nicer than sparkling wine?) looking a little on the shallow side served as it was in giant was refreshing and crisp and positive reviews came back from the others.

The sound track of Ella and Louis crooning in the background was a perfect accompaniament to this smokey (in the no smoke sense) dark bar that speaks of perfume, whispers and secret rendezvous. The crowd was a mixed blend from couple to groups of guys and girls but it never got noisy or too trendy feeling instead providing a chance to slip back into a little old world glamour. I have also become obssesed by the mosaic mirrored walls…soooo sparkly.
