The excellent mini-bar at Dukes in London includes the usual suspects of beverages and snacks, but also a few local specialties and even recipes for a nightcap. Half bottles of Perrier Jouet, the house champagne, Chateau Treytins Montagne St-Emilion and Domaine Defaix Chablis are provided, as well as two bottles of Peroni. Miniatures of Bombay Sapphire, Stolichnaya, Macallan 10 year and Crème de Mures are provided, in addition to orange juice, tonic, sodas, Red Bull, Pearl Royal coconut water from Thailand and still and sparkling water bottles. A bar of Dukes chocolate is included, with M&Ms, Snickers and Mars bars on the upper shelf of the fridge. Jarred mixes of nuts and salted pretzels are also found, along with a hotel-logoed can of shortbread, an oat bar, two cans of Pringles and small bags of crisps. Guests can turn over the mini-bar price list for some useful cocktail recipes, like the Dukes 1908 with two teaspoons of crème de mures, a half-bottle of the small gin and a top-up of champagne.
