Have a toast @ the Savoy

Autumn is far from being my favourite time of the year. Icy rain, less and less light, coats/scarves/gloves are out, I learn never to stray far from a radiator.

Well, if we are to stay indoors, we might as well do it in style, don’t you think?

The iconic London palace, The Savoy, has just reopened after 3 years of renovations (more on the subject this way). The utmost luxury. Every single detail shines diamond style – even the chandeliers reflect in the polished marbled floors…

To celebrate the event, a second bar, the Beaufort, sets to amaze the guests. Replacing the cabaret room, the counter actually is on what used to be the stage. Decoration infinitely Art Deco, Onyx black and gold (£40,000 worth of gold leaves have been applied).

The menu presents rare and vintage champagnes (just close your eyes on the price before ordering). You can also settle for their gorgeous signature cocktails…

After manhy hesitations, Patience  will finally win my heart: Hendrick’s gin, lime marmelade, Chartreuse, green tea abd cucumber syrup, served martini style. Refreshing, surprising, comforting… Rain  outside? Pfff, bring it on!

Bonus: forget olives and peanuts. You will also be served some delicate treats… Here, crostinis of seared salmon, figs and parmesan crips. Almost jewels!

Do not hesitate to come alone. The ballet of guests and waiters in evening wear is just hypnotising. You will leave filled with sunshine…
