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.

Bursting with luxury, the Beaufort is a feast for the eyes from the moment you walk in. Dark walls, donned with golden trimmings. Deep couches surrounding little tables topped with colourful cocktails make it an absolute treat. It's not just about the drinks, it's the little touches like an amazingly curated menu, customised coasters depending on what you order and the little snacks that makes it an experience rather than just a bar serving up delicious cocktails.


While The American Bar may be the "best bar in Europe" I actually think the Beaufort is the better bar in the Savoy. There's an elegance about the room; golds and black drape around the room, with the alcoves decorated with actual gold leaf (I saw it in a documentary) The bar is raised from the rest of the room, and looks as though it is set upon a stage, and the barmen are the performers creating some of the most elegant and refined drinks. It's not cheap in here by any means, with some drinks in the thousands of pounds (!) but you can get a few elegantly created classics for less than £20, all of which are served with nuts, olives and bombay mix!

The service in here is impeccable; attentive and polite, so much so that one of them leant us their super cool cufflink so my friend could grab some inspiration for a bar he's opening in the States. The cufflinks highlight the attention to detail that has been given to this bar, and The Savoy in general. I love it in here and it's certainly my favourite bar to enjoy on a special occasion, or when you're after a little treat to yourself.


This is one of my favourite bars in London. The decor is very dark art deco style. On weekends they have a pianist that sings. The cocktailenue is a pop-up menue so that you can visualize the inspiration. The cocktails there cost from £16 up to £50. When we went we tried two cocktails I had the embankment garden whuch was delicious and one of the cheaper options, my friend however tried a milky option the name escapes me and it sounded delicious it was meant to have pekans and star anise but tasted like a watered down baileys with star anise infused. Not nice, when we asked if we could switch cocktails for her the staff were more than accommodating. All in all a love place for a quiet nightcap.


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!!!!
