Beaufort Bar Named World's Top Hotel Bar


We are delighted to announce that the acclaimed Beaufort Bar at The Savoy has been named Best International Hotel Bar at the 9th Annual Spirited Awards at Tales of the Cocktail 2015 in New Orleans.

The Beaufort Bar is truly honoured to receive this recognition of excellence, following what’s been the largest nomination pool in the history of the event, and a rigorous judging process by some of the most respected members of the cocktail industry.

If you aren’t familiar with the Beaufort Bar at The Savoy, it’s more than just a place to savour some creative cocktails; it’s an immersive, theatrical experience. The bar itself stands on the hotels former cabaret stage, which was graced by such luminaries as Carol Gibbons and George Gershwin. And the rich tradition of live entertainment continues to this day.

From the moment you arrive, you’ll know you’re somewhere special. It’s like stepping back into a bygone age of old-world glamour, where every detail is a pleasant, thoughtful surprise. Even the menu is dramatic, taking the form of a limited edition pop-up book, featuring beautiful, hand-drawn illustrations. 

The cocktails themselves are works of fine art. It seems almost a shame to drink them…until your first sip is rewarded with flavour explosions that dazzle your palate. We recommend trying The Impressionist, one of the bar’s most popular cocktails, which arrives at your table with a ‘smoking rose’ for that signature element of Beaufort drama.

As we celebrate this prestigious honour, we invite you to experience the Beaufort Bar for yourself on your next visit to London. Your table is waiting.
