Claridge's Bar

Claridge’s remains one of London’s best hotels. The downside: everyone knows it, and its beautiful bar (designed by David Collins) can be a little oversubscribed.

On a quiet night, there are few finer spaces in which to enjoy a cocktail, whether traditional or 21st-century. Walk in when it’s busy, though, and you’ll have to fight for space with Taras gossiping about their PR clients over a bottle of sauv, big-night-up-west partiers getting warmed up with a glass of bubbly, and a scattering of ostentatiously rich Eurotrash.

Still, the staff treat everyone with respect and always mix their cocktails with care. And if the crowds prove too much, the hotel’s Fumoir bar, a cigar-lover’s paradise until the smoking ban, is an elegant escape hatch.

A wonderful bar with wonderful staff! If all the tables are full they will keep an eye on who was first and then invite you to sit at the table so its not a scrum. I do like this idea. We went off piste when at the bar and asked the bar man to make us a special cocktail. Was great he asked lots of questions to ask us more about our likes and dislikes and then created what was exceptional. It was even more so as I find cocktails too sweet sometimes and this was perfect. So perfect it was almost rude not to have another one..... Prices are a little expensive for my liking but I think its worth it when the drink is crafted so beautifully and also when the customer service is extra special. 


A beautiful bar with impeccable detailing where the staff make you feel like a million dollars. Service is unobtrusive, canapes are delicious and waiters are friendly, polite & assured. In short, if you're looking for a place in which to savour that special pre-dinner drink or post-dessert nightcap, this is a bar worth saving your pennies for any making a pilgrimage to.


Ok I have been to Claridges a few times - mainly for work events; London Collection: Men's, appointments and as the pictures show for fashion charity events - and every time is a five star experience. I have sampled the beautiful canapés enough times to know that any food you have here is absolute perfection (thanks Mary Berry for that phrase), and the staff are super attentive usually serving up premium champagne and cocktails. Take a look at the decor and marvel at the interiors - a visit is highly recommended.
