SquareMeal Review of
Liberty Champagne & Oyster Bar
You might need a stiffener, given the price of some dandyish gear in Liberty’s basement menswear department, wherein resides this chic 1960s bridge-of-a-spaceship-style Champagne & oyster bar.
Pop on to a high stool & part with £10 for a flute of French fizz or Kentish sparkler Balfour Brut Rosé, or closer to £200 for a bottle of 1999 Dom Pérignon. The rest of the list favours whites
such as an old-vines Muscadet & a Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand – perfect with oysters, dressed crab, moules marinière & various fishy salads. From such relaxed surroundings
– more of a smart R&R opportunity than somewhere for serious lingering – that Burberry Prorsum suit for sale opposite will seem like a great investment after a half bottle of Pommery.
