A TASTE FOR THE FINER THINGS?
Taking some time away for a break is the perfect time to indulge yourself a little. Whether you want to fill up your Instagram feed or just want to have some new experiences with friends or family, London is a fantastic place to be able to enjoy the finer things in life.
Here are some of the best places right in the heart of the city, where you can kick back and relax in some truly stunning environments:
CHAMPAGNE + FROMAGE
First on our list is the award-winning Champagne + Fromage. With Somerset House, St Paul's Cathedral and the West End to call its neighbours, you can't really get more in the heart of London than this.
The Bistro itself serves up an authentic French menu, which includes favourites such as tartines, cheese and charcuterie boards, salads, baked cheeses, as well as many seasonal specials. Its shop-come-restaurant decor gives the space a truly decadent feel, as well as allowing you to take your favourite produce home with you.
What makes this an exclusive hotspot though, is its selection of award-winning grower Champagnes on offer. The dedicated staff will be on hand to help you find the right drink to complement your dish of choice, whether you pick from the wide variety of cheeses on offer or something else.
A short walk away from Champagne + Fromage, is the suave and sophisticated Searcy's 1847 Champagne Bar. The incredible St Paul's Cathedral is right opposite, making this exclusive venue one of the most photogenic for visitors and the photo opportunities don't stop there.
With a chandelier made from glistening wine glasses and leather-clad booths, the interior is just as attractive as its surroundings. The drinks menu is what Searcy's prides itself on and with good reason as it boasts a range of cocktails, handpicked wines and craft beers, as well as the Champagne on offer.
If you find yourself getting a little hungry, don't worry, as Searcy's has you covered there too. With a selection of snacks and sharing platters, there is something for everyone.
Named after the French philosopher and writer who was exiled to London for a number of years, Voltaire offers a unique twist on the Champagne Bar. Whether you want to impress on your social media channels or simply want to take a memento of your experience, you'll be sure to take as many photos as you can once inside.
A chic lounge complete with premium booths are paired with an alfresco cigar terrace where you can dine above the hustle and bustle of the city. However, it is probably the historic vaults that make it the most unique Champagne Bar in London.
Each named after a friend of Voltaire, they all have a distinct personality that is sure to bring a certain level of exclusivity to your party.
Have you heard about our champagne promotion in Bertie's Bar? From Monday to Saturday you can enjoy a glass of your favourite bubbles, such as Theophile, Louis Roderer and Laurent-Perrier.
If you're not a fan of champagne, don't worry we have a gin promotion on too. Vilmos and his team have created four special gin cocktails for you to choose from, or choose all four for only £40.
