Gallery: Inside the May Fair London's Theater
While London's Ritz Hotel was being "trashed" during Saturday's protests, we hid out for a few hours in the bar of The May Fair just up the street. It was incredible to think that just a minute's walk away, the masses were wreaking such havoc while here, tucked a little back from Piccadilly, all was calm and proper as afternoon tea progressed.
If things had gotten any worse, we would probably have found our way down into The May Fair's private theater, the largest private theater in London actually. We peeked in for only a moment to snap these photos, and heard that it's all set up not only to host conferences, movie screenings and other events, but it can also show 3D films. And they say London's grand dame hotels are so traditional.
