The Promenade is The Dorchester’s glittering lounge room where all dining occasions are catered for, from breakfasts that will set you up for the day in style, through to elegant lunches, indulgent afternoon tea and romantic dinners with top-class cocktails. Guests are invited to relax in beautiful surroundings, and if you’re lucky, you’ll be treated to a performance from the hotel’s resident pianist who will artfully wield the mirrored Liberace grand piano.
Mornings at The Promenade begin with indulgent breakfasts, from honey-drizzled buttermilk pancakes served with fabulous coffee and refreshing juices, to a lobster, bacon and avocado brioche roll. The menu is crammed with every possible breakfast item you could imagine, from porridge and chia bowls to cooked breakfasts and eggs any way you like.
Lunch, meanwhile, is just as generous, where everything from grills and hearty mains to soups, salads and sandwiches can be ordered and enjoyed. Or, skip the middle man altogether and go straight for afternoon tea. The Dorchester’s offering is a smile-inducing mix of dainty finger sandwiches, scones with cream and preserves, as well as delicate patisseries inspired by classic treats.
For dinner, you can expect a refined display of classic dishes, from a starter of smoked salmon with soda bread, crème fraîche and beetroot, to chicken and langoustine pie with mousseline potato, carrots and kale for main.
Art plays a starring role within the hotel and guests will find an extensive art collection on display at The Promenade, taking the beholder on an exuberant adventure through the British artistic tradition of landscapes. Adding to the room’s splendour are black and gold marble columns, studded sofas, ornate ceilings and beautiful light fixtures. It’s sure to make a spectacular backdrop at any time of day.
