What used to be a prison has been converted into a Champagne and cigar bar at the edge of the City. It's an ideal spot for post-work drinks – the private VIP vault areas can be reserved for groups while the bar offerings run from cocktails, starting at £9, to a range of Champagne, from £11 for a glass to £1,200 for a Cuvée Louise Brut 1990 Jeroboam. The food menu includes club sandwiches, somerset brie with spicey orange marmalade or Indian aloo tikki with mint and cucumber yogurt.
The Grade II-listed Voltaire is steeped in history and has undergone many guises, located on the site of King Henry VIII's royal Bridewell Palace, a prison and a bank before finally finding its feet as one of London’s finest drinking haunts.
Voltaire has retained the original cells and latterly vaults which are now unique heated private dens for couples to groups, complete with a music system and table service. Alongside a cocktail list, Champagne selection and cigar menu. Voltaire also serves a Cocktail Afternoon Tea during the day and gourmet burgers in the evening.
In the deluxe Crowne Plaza London The City, Voltaire is located opposite Blackfriars Tube and Rail stations and is a 8-minute walk from St Paul’s Cathedral and the circle line.
