Bye Bye Blue Boar: Intercontinental OUT of Westminster

westminster

After opening with much fanfare in late 2012, the Intercontinental Hotel in Westminster attempted to establish itself as the place to be for politcos. After some initial success it’s now full of lobbyists eating overpriced food and looking over their shoulder in case someone interesting passes through, which is a rarity these days. Well, Guido hears the Intercontinental group have had enough and are throwing in the towel…

Hilton will be taking over the running of things, and the plan is that it will become a Conrad branded venture. Guido’s advice would be sort out the Blue Boar. It’s dark, soul-less and the food is not up scratch for that price. The wine list is expensive and so dull, and the service has become sloppy. Lighten it all up a bit; gut the entire bar and restaurant and then start again. Aim a little lower in price and who knows… it might work. All change at the end of August. See ya.
