Not very helpful, I know, but airline lounges are pretty good. Ie the ones you get if you fly business/first or are a frequent flyer with the airline/airline group involved. You are kinda defacto legit just by being there. I met an Australian girl in one such place and it turned out our travel plans would be overlapping a week later. I recommended my usual hotel...

Wouldn't these be very likely scenarios in which to get 'stung', scammed or set up ?

Personally I'd stick to well known and trusted agencies

You could be right as indeed I recognised the 'business look' of some girls in these places and others and quickly asked my friends to socialise somewhere else.  I never understood why some girls mix business with pleasure.  They always seem to ask for a glass of Champagne and then get busy texting everyone rather than making conversation with their friends.  Then they drop everything if an interesting 'male' comes nearby.

Sounds interesting. Is Harvey Nichols in Knightsbridge and what time does it stay open until ?

Harvey Nichols's reputation goes on for several decades apparently.  I have been there late last year with an oldster who dragged me there for drinks after a lovely meal and the bar was empty despite him telling me is packed most of the times.  He must have been there more often than I go: once every several years is enough to notice that despite changing the decor the bar seem to attract the same kind of people.

Not sure of the "hot spots" as of today but back in the late 90s and early 00s any decent hotel bar would be an ideal meeeting place!!!

But i like my vodka too much to be unfaithful to it lol :-P

I feel there is a very fine line between bar crawling and kerb crawling. Maybe the ladies in the bars might be a bit smarter but the MO is much the same.

The "very fine line" is the law. You're not going to get your collar felt when chatting to a woman in a bar.  :D No little brown envelopes coming through the door after frequenting a bar.

In my 20s i met an English girl at stringfellows club New York . She told me , was on a working holiday in NYC . . Apparently she & other wgs were doing the same"bar crawling" at the original stringfellows club london combining having fun after hours with potential for making extra money .. This was before stringfellows became a Lap dancing club ..

There must still be some clubs in London where wgs go to have fun??

Whats the attraction to these pick up joints? Surely if you've got the minerals to try/do this, you could try picking up a non profit making lady?  ;)  :P

the bar at The Sanderson Hotel, near Oxford Street.   London Hilton Hotel Park Lane, Windows of the World bar on the top floor, night time, 10pm till 01.00am.   Lots of girls go there first and then onto Whisky Mist nightclub next door, also part of Hilton Hotel building.

 

You could also try Mandarin Oriental Hotel, Knightsbridge, evenings are great, nice crowd, everyone dressed smartly, quite a few foreign girls go there and the Sheraton Hotel opposite, scouting for business.   Hope this helps you out.

Remember to take a wallet full of credit cards if you check out any of these places.  By the time you've bought a couple of rounds it will have cost you the same as an hour long punt.  

 

I took my daughter to Latium for her birthday in January and we went into the Sanderson long bar, opposite, for drinks beforehand. For two cocktails, an alcohol-free beer and a coke it was just over forty quid.

Hilarious, it looks like the men I know seem to be dragging me to all these hotspots: at Windows indeed I noticed some suspicious activity and lots of ladies kept coming close to my date who liked spending hundreds on his drinks: so pity for me a cocktail is more than enough.  At Sanderson the same happened when I was there with a gorgeous, older guy.  All the girlies who could have been his grand daughters kept looking enviously until we left for a show.  Thank God I cannot be bothered.

Happier drinking in somewhat more low key watering holes...in the city there are enough wine bars for you to enjoy yourself without the unwanted attention...whoops, i should not be recommeding these...

Thank you, Hero.  I tend to stay away from all those 'dangerous' places as I prefer the ones you mentioned and yes, maybe I should go more often to the City as there are some great bars/restaurants there.
