The American Bar at the Savoy Hotel is very pricey, but worth a visit for students of cocktail history.

A truly historic cocktail bar in a glamorous old hotel, once tended by such luminaries as Ada Coleman and Harry Craddock.  As one might expect, the drinks are very expensive--expect to pay up to twice as much as anywhere else, and much, much more for the vintage cocktails--but well-executed.  The service was very good and the art deco atmosphere wonderful, though it was marred a bit by the loud live piano jazz.  We walked in with no reservations and had to wait a few minutes, but this gave us the chance to check out the hotel's American Bar museum (lots of Sinatra!).  Make sure to walk about the hotel a bit too; it really is a gorgeous old place.  Cocktails tried and recommended: Classic Dry Martini, Green Park.
