SquareMeal Review of
The Garden Bar, Champagne Terrace at The Ritz London
A glitzy, ritzy addition to London’s summer season, the secluded Garden Bar, Champagne Terrace looks a picture with its beautiful Italian mosaic floor, ornate wrought iron balustrades, floral boxes
and voluminous parasols. Every afternoon and early evening, it offers the prospect of light canapés, cornets of smoked salmon muscovite and British cheeses to go with a line-up of big-name
Champagnes including Laurent-Perrier, Bollinger, Dom Pérignon and Krug Grande Cuvée, as well as the Ritz’s own-label fizz. If cigars are your thing, watch the sun going down while puffing on brands
such as Partagas, Montecristo and Cohiba. Diners from the exclusive The Ritz Restaurant can also take
lunch on the terrace every day, weather permitting. Note that the hotel’s formal dress code applies, despite the chill-out setting – although ‘gentleman may remove their jackets’.
