The Savoys Beaufort Bar London
The best thing about travel for me, is seeing new and beautiful buildings and design.
If you’re seeking hardcore glamour, you’ll find Deco joy at The Savoy Hotel.
Since it’s major renovation you now have a choice of two shiny bars: American Bar and the Beaufort Bar.(pictured)
A £220 million project in 2012 made sure every corner of the hotel was restored and refurbished.
Beaufort bar incorporates the hotel’s former cabaret stage (graced by the likes of George Gershwin and Carol Gibbons) as the centrepiece to a theatrical, art deco space, with sumptuous black velvet furnishings and £40,000 of gold leaf on the walls.
Romantic couples might like to opt for the Gilded Cage – two glasses literally served in a bird cage, and containing vodka, mandarin liqueur, yellow Chartreuse, fresh passion fruit and mango with pomegranate foam (£25 per couple) – while groups will be tempted by the four-person champagne punches with names like the Garden Party, Rhapsody in Blue and the Cat’s Meow, served in absinthe fountains and costing £40.
