Went for a birthday cocktail and left disappointed and had to complain to the manager. For such a high class establishment we found the decor drab despite the refurbishment, service was poor and drinks over-priced! The carpet, tables and chairs belong to a tired run down hotel from the 80s that lacked ambience and not what we were expecting. So sad as used to love it there but it's not worth the money...


This bar is beautiful. Spent a lovely evening here with wonderful cocktails and nibbles.

Not for the Hoi polloi, if you are able to restrain your native instinct for instant gratification and observe the cadence and timing it takes to create each and every classic cocktail fashioned here adhering to strict preparation and ingredients, then prepare to indulge into a long gone world of elegance and subtle charms not easily found in the world today. The Savoy is the standard bearer of a time when ladies and gentlemen understood the meaning of a night out. Dress the part and the angels will indeed descend from heaven to court your highest desires and expectations. Mine own were exceeded. It was a magical, unforgettable experience.


For the cost of a drink you would expect staff to be accommodating and respectful. I found the staff to be pompous and rude. Save your money and enjoy the many bars a stones throw away from this hotel.


I went to have a pre-theatre cocktail with my husband. Service was so bad we had to leave before we even had our drinks served. 15 minutes to taking the order then over 15 minutes more before we decided we had run out of time. Don't waste your time. Ambience was not that great as low ceiling gave a less that luxurious feel.


Swani is an artist, a musicien, a top chef, a yogy who blends his extreme drinks knowledge with work of art for every single for every single person....he shares his passion and history of bartender industry with us. I arrived alone at the bar to try one of those famous drinks I read about in the magazine. Swani made sure all staff speak to me to feel comfortable. The pianist even sang a song for me :) Two others ladies form the US and one other form Denmark joined me at the bar and we created a bond of new girl friendship, sharing stories and watching Swani concotte delicious, exploratory to your pallet famous drinks.
