James Bond - 007

dukes1

Author Ian Fleming used to stay at Dukes Hotel in London. It was in the bar that he discovered the cocktail 'vodka-martini' famously - "Shaken, not stirred."

My son has a theory, that because Dukes is located in St. James's Place, close to Bond Street, these places subconsciously provided the influence for Fleming to name his hero James Bond.

Perhaps he was staying in room 7 at the time.
