Square Meal Review of Claridge's Bar & Le Fumoir ?

Unimpeachable silver service and streamlined, art deco-inspired simplicity (courtesy of the late David Collins) make Claridge’s bar one of London’s very best rooms for a Champagne celebration. Break out the 1962 Dom Pérignon Oenothèque (£3,400) when sealing a six-figure deal or settle for Deutz or rosé fizz (from £50) if something more accessible is required. Otherwise cocktails such as watermellini and Brook Street martini fit the bill. And we say three cheers for a ban on shorts, baseball caps, ripped jeans and flip-flops! Meanwhile, Le Fumoir is arguably London’s most ravishing salon – a Lalique mirror-panelled cutie that belongs to an era when retro cocktails such as airmail, aviation, journalist and boulevardier were de rigueur. Doubtless, the barman would probably dispense sex on the beach too (if requested), although such non-U options are definitely not the thing at this bijou shrine to fine living.

Wine List Of The Year Finalist

The Champagne selection is special, with enviable selections of formats and vintages for 20 marques of varying sizes. Only eight are available by the glass, and there’s precious little under £100, but it’s unlikely the target audience look at the right-hand column too closely. Perfect for the luxury bar it serves.
