Yesterday, after strolling around Oxford, St. Regents, and Carnaby street, K and I kicked it up a notch (or maybe down, I'll let you be the judge), and headed to Dukes Hotel in Mayfair for some pre- 'SKYFALL' martinis.
We'd been told that Dukes was a favourite haunt of Ian Fleming, and Dukes Bar, the inspiration for 'Shaken, not stirred'. It seemed pretty obvious that this was where we needed to go before the show.
|A well stocked bar to say the least.|
You might have realized from the photos that our martinis were not Bond style. You are correct. Our thinking after the £20 price tag was that we better damn enjoy them!
After our drinks, our new friends recommended Burger and Lobster for dinner. When a man from Boston recommends a place to go for Lobster, you listen. At Burger and Lobster, the menu is simple. You have the choice of three things; a burger, a lobster, or a lobster roll. Fitting name for the restaurant isn't it?
|The Lobster Roll.|
|Yup, the lobster.|
Then it was movie time. Off we went, around the corner to the Curzon. Like many London movie theatres, hot drinks, and booze are available to take into the film. A nice perk.
|Just me and my Lambo.|
I'm sorry, what were you saying?
