Re: Re: South Great George’s Street
Also worth concurring with Stephen’s points above about Hogans and Le Gueilleton. The former in particular is dewily, romantically gorgeous since its spruce-up, with fantastically muscular Edwardian cream awnings, always kept immaculately clean, projecting from each side of the building, as well as repainted timberwork in a deep forest green. The icing on the cake is the glittering clear candle bulbs in the array of famous green-tinged lanterns adorning the ground floor piers. Always kept clean, always all working, always an insistence on avoiding nasty CFL tempatations. A complete delight, which when coupled with Le Gueilleton’s immacculately mannered seating ensemble next door, creates a concentration of presentation standards unmatched elsewhere in the city.
