One of our favorite cocktail menus because of the clarity of the design – the graphics are wonderful and we love the clever illustration of the glass with the cherry at the bottom. The Piccadilly Hotel was built in London in 1908 and was one of the capital city’s most luxurious places to stay. There were 300 bedrooms, several top-class restaurants and Masonic Temples in the basement. Staff drew water from the property’s own well so guests did not have to drink from the city’s then-questionable public water supply. By the time a guest of the hotel could sip a Piccadilly Cocktail from this 1950s list, there were no concerns regarding the quality of the ice in one’s glass. The hotel is now called Le Meridien Piccadilly.
