At the most famous hotel in London, maybe the world, is the ultra-suave and coolly low-key Beaufort Bar, quite possibly the most attractive space to sip a drink in the city. Despite the fact it’s just off the lobby (which is always busy with tourists wandering in and coming-and-going guests), it’s a hideaway of supreme style and opulence. Jet-black walls, theatrical lighting and enough discreet touches of gold to remind you you’re somewhere beyond special: the refurbished (2013) Beaufort is just stunning. Good job then that the drinks are first-rate – far more creative than at its neighbouring American Bar, and many incorporating fizz to great effect. A stunning place.

Dark and decadent are the two main words one would use to describe this bar. It’s sultry jazz playing in the background highlight the allure of the opulent décor and furnishings.

We came here to celebrate a new job and that happened to fall on the day they launched a new pop up cocktail menu! The most imaginative way to make people really engage in what they wanted to drink. As it was a celebration, we opted for champagne but if I could’ve chosen any cocktail, it would’ve been the Ol’ Blue Eyes. Staff were also really friendly and attentive.

Very, very good cocktails in a very, very special setting. For a fancy occasion you could do a lot worse than head to this gorgeous, art deco bar. Yes it's expensive but you're experiencing a little slice of London's history in the process. 


I just spent the last 4 days of a month long vacation in London. I spent three of those nights at the Savoy. It is undoubtedly one of the best drink venues I have ever been too. There is no attitude nor pretention with service. You feel very welcomed. I had Ole Blue Eyes in the Champagne Bar ( the Art Deco bar) and at 25 GPS it was great. A special Silver Jack Daniels, with a touch of Benedctine and a few squeezes of fresh orange burned with a match served on a coaster of an old 45 rpm record of an old Sinatra recording. after the 5 minute description of the drink from the bartender and his traveling Art Deco bar - it was fabulous!!!!
