WC2, Robert Street

2021: The basement of this listed building now houses the Aire Ancient Baths, a spa described by the FT puff as containing "... a series of candle-lit pools under brick arches in the manner of a Roman cistern, patches of peeling plaster and clusters of salt-glazed pots, the odd pair of columns and terracotta urns. The sound of what I suspect is a pan flute gently pipes through the speakers (even underwater)."

EC3, St Michael's Alley, Jamaica Wine House

This probably isn't a City of London plaque - though blue and oblong, the proportions are wrong, the style is different and its anonymous.
