SquareMeal Review of Claridge's Bar

Gold Award

If you have something to celebrate, we suggest heading to Claridge’s Bar – home to one of the finest selections of Champagne in the capital. Its list reads like a who’s who of producers, from grand marques to growers, with a stellar selection of rare cuvées and vintage bottles including Krug Clos d’Ambonnay, Bollinger La Grande Anne´e and Salon 1971 – priced at a cool £5,800.

Happily you don’t need to be a billionaire to enjoy the delicious buzz at this David Collins-designed bolthole, or the reasonably priced roll call of cocktails including Brook Street (the signature Claridge’s Martini made with Jensen’s Old Tom gin and Antica Formula) and The Flapper – a sparkling concoction of Champagne, fresh strawberries and crème de cassis that’s been on the list since the bar opened. Another highlight is the special collection of Prohibition-era whiskeys – a real treat for connoisseurs. To nibble, oysters, caviar and desserts await.  

If you’re settling in for the evening, we suggest slipping away to The Fumoir, a darkly lit, Lalique-panelled bar that serves up twists on the classics – from a Saffron Sidecar (Martell Cordon Bleu Cognac, saffron-infused Cointreau, lemon and pear) to a Netherlands Sour made with Rutte Genever and peach-infused Riesling.

For levels of service you cannot beat Claridge's. I returned to London after an 18 month stint overseas, I stay at Claridge's whenever possible, however, on this trip I was staying elsewhere. On entering The Fumoir not only was I greeted warmly but also by name. Not bad after 18 months!! The levels of service in Claridge's never fail to delight.

Gordon Gordon Gordon… I am by far his biggest fan, to the extent I am willing to patron him when in LA (new West Hollywood resturant in The London) and New York…my love for him runneth over! But I can NOT stand Claridges pretentious Banker/Hedge Fund feel. I love Hospital road for the food (the bar there is non existent) but my friend who is obsessed with the place constantly drags me down there. The drinks are fabulous…so if you are in the Banking industry and like pretentious locations…then off you go you will thrive in the realms of Claridges.
