One of the many features that make No.5 Maddox Street stand out from the crowd is its fantastic take on the minibar, their ‘Big Bar’, with its ‘good’ and ‘bad’ options. 'Good' choices include organic penne pasta and pasta sauce; 'Bad' includes temptations such as Divine chocolate bars and Jelly Bellies. The ‘Baddest Bar’ tempts you with naughtiness such as Vodka and Bloody Mary mix. Personal grocery shopping is also offered from Wholefoods in Soho, so you can have your cupboards stocked with your favourite organic and Fair-Trade foods. As if that wasn't enough, on arrival, each guest receives a complimentary welcome tray with a choice of teas, fresh Fair Trade coffee, fruit, and handmade Artisan du Chocolat delights.
