If one bar in London embodies decadent luxury, it’s The Rivoli. Step through the door and you’re suddenly in an opulent oasis, bathed in a golden sheen with gilded ceiling domes and lavishly decorated in art-deco style with swathes of marble, glossy camphor-wood wall panels, plush leopard-print, swirly Murano glass chandeliers and vintage Lalique.
Such style has a handsome price tag – this is The Ritz after all. But if your wallet can take a hit, then settle in for patriotic signature cocktails such the Royal Albert Hall (an on-trend mix of Bacardi rum, cherry maceration, fermented pineapple tepache, lemon juice and rooibos tea) or the gin-laced Windsor Castle, created to celebrate the wedding of Prince Harry and Megan Markle (all £22).
Seasonal mixes such as the summery Royal Ascot (Grey Goose Vodka, lime, apricot and soda) are also on offer, alongside a suitably top-end wine selection and bubbles including Billecart-Salmon Rosé and magnums of Bollinger – a perfect match for the caviar menu, luxury sandwiches and savouries, or even the house bacon and cheese burger with mushroom ketchup.
