Here’s a must visit for all bassoonists — the Bassoon Bar at the Corinthian Hotel in London. You enter through double glass doors with long carved wood handles based on bassoon joints. Then pull up a stool at the bar — the 60-foot-long black-lacquered lid of a grand piano; the house pianist plays the keyboard at the end — and order the Bocal Cocktail. Be warned, though: this is a luxury hotel, and even a visit to the bar is not for the faint-of-wallet. The Bocal will set you back 17 quid, and a burger (a good burger, though, I hear) is 24!
