31 Jul The Savoy, London
This week we got invited to attend a show around with drinks at The Savoy! The Savoy stands proudly on the Northbank of the River Thames. The ballet, opera and theatre of vibrant Covent Garden are just a step away; with the City, world-renowned museums and galleries, and the designer shopping of Knightsbridge and Mayfair within easy reach.
The hotel’s 267 luxury rooms and suites celebrate The Savoy’s dual historical influences, featuring either elegant English Edwardian design or sensational Art Deco style. Many afford breath-taking views across the River Thames, and of iconic London landmarks. Those staying in suites enjoy dedicated Butler service, offering the discretion of a traditional English butler with the efficiency of a 21st-century personal assistant.
Firstly we stopped by the Savoy’s bijou tea store, Savoy Tea, which offers exquisite teas, chocolates and bespoke accessories in an imperial Eastern atmosphere. I would highly recommend the salted caramel truffle – it instantly melted in your mouth and the flavours were incredible.
Fine dining has always been an integral part of The Savoy since world-renowned chef Auguste Escoffier set an unprecedented standard in 1889. Today Kaspar’s at The Savoy offers informal dining in a stylish Art Deco setting, whilst Gordon Ramsay’s Savoy Grill presents a British Grill menu with a French touch. The beautiful Thames Foyer, truly the heart of the hotel, is where The Savoy serves London’s finest traditional Afternoon Tea, a custom that remains a British institution. The latest addition to The Savoy is Melba, a take-away gourmet counter enticing passers-by with the finest fare directly on the Strand.
We then ended up in the beautiful Beaufort Bar. The design and feel of this fashionable art deco bar provides a real sense of luxury and opulence. Offering an exclusive selection of Vintage and NV Champagnes and fine wines by the glass and bottle with a sophisticated selection of cocktails. We chose to taste the Composer cocktail and was instantly sold. The length of thought that went into the many flavours and design of the cocktail was stunning.
The Savoy, one of the world’s iconic hotels, provides the glamour of yesteryear with the functionality of today. Originally opened in 1889 the hotel has made its place in history, hosting royalty, world leaders and legends of the stage and screen.
