McKittrick Hotel was meant to be the most decadent luxury hotel of its time. Unfortunatley for its investors, it was completed in 1939, and the outbreak of World War II doomed such extravagance. Though it closed with in a year, it still made its mark, impressing Alfred Hitchcock so much he borrowed its name for the hotel in Vertigo.
These days The McKittrick Hotel is quite the scene. Home to Sleep No More, an interactive noir-ish interpretation of Shakeaspeare's Macbeth a collaboration from Punchdrunk and Emursive, in which the audience roams around a maze or rooms encountering different scenarios.
The space has a couple of bars and a restaurant that maintain the 1930s noir feeling, with smokey jazz, bespoke cocktails and an in the know crowd.
The Manderley Bar opens up after the performance, and provides intimate setting and fun night out. Check their >a href="http://www.mckittrickhotel.com/manderley-bar/"> website for a list of performers.
Rooftop bar Gallow Green has big bowls of punch for gouts, or expensive bespoke cocktails if flying solo.
The Heath provides elegant setting to eat some old school British cuisine. Reservations recommended!
