The evolution of eating and drinking at Blakes.
A mysterious revolution took place in Blakes and a few other hotels. In London, historically, people who were not guests at a hotel would not, typically, socialize in them.
Blakes destroyed that notion. It became a place to be and be seen. If you are staying with us then you feel very privileged. If you aren’t staying with us you simply lose yourself in the glamour and decadence and quietly wonder what it would be like to stay there.
Change, for the sake of change, seems a little futile.
Refusing to change, similarly, is graceless.
