Good Godfrey’s bar and lounge in the historical Waldorf hotel is proud of its opulent past, serving breakfast and lunch during the day and, as the evening approaches, bold cocktail concoctions with a variety of food plates to complement.
The signature cocktails include The Astor Hip Flask named after William Waldorf Astor, the owner of the Waldorf Astoria in NY and an investor in the Waldorf in London, and The Refined Madam, inspired by the soubriquet of ‘Madam Geneva’ for the badly made gin available during the gin craze of Georgian London.
Cocktail master classes as also available.

I was a little disappointed that I just missed the 11pm kitchen cut off so no bar food; it would have been nice if the staff could have arrange for the kitchen to...more
A great little bar inside the Waldorf Hilton. Named after a 1920s band leader. Open late for hotel guests. (Midnight-ish but later than the pubs.). Calling it "private" apparently adds two hours to closing time.
Nice atmosphere, fairly quiet with Big Band Musak. The decor is not quite as nice as the Rivoli Bar at the Ritz but drinks are just as good and 20% less expensive, plus the service...more
