Old Fashioned (Hotel?) Bar in London

Good evening

Despite having lived in London all my life, I am struggling to think of a bar for what I am looking for on Friday night. Looking for somewhere fairly central to catch up with a friend - ideally somewhere wood-panelled, dark and "moody" that has nice whiskey at a moderately wallet friendly price.

A very specific brief! Very grateful for any ideas

    1. Absolutely goto the bar at the Dukes Hotel, and order one of their vodka martinis (though the prices are fairly high)!

        Seconded. Absolutely perfectly fits the brief. And the martinis are out of this world.

      2. The bar at the Orrery might suit.
        It has a very old school clubby feel.

            I wouldn't recommend driving if you plan on having more than one!
