The Lonsdale in Noting Hill is a great place for a night out if you are looking for a rather relaxed atmosphere without the West End drama of the queques and guest lists, however the compromise is slightly on the glamour side of things. Give it one more cocktail from the extensive list of cocktail list in the bar and you will not even notice. The only minus- why so far from King's Rd? ;-) If you are hungry, there is also a restaurant, but I haven't tried it yet. Maybe next time when I am passing by Notting Hill.
