Looking for somewhere to take your date on Valentine’s Day? Champagne Bureau UK has rounded up some of the most romantic Champagne bars in London to pop a bottle and toast to everlasting love.
The Rosewood’s Mirror Room is a fantastic spot for a Champagne brunch or Champagne Afternoon Tea - and at its Champagne Bar, in the heart of the Mirror Room, guests can enjoy a post-dinner glass of bubbles. For Valentine’s Day this year, Cupid has given its Champagne Afternoon Tea a romantic twist with the designs reimagined in a fitting red and pink hued palette. Alongside these aesthetically pleasing cakes, Mirror Room will serve up a selection of sandwiches with traditional Japanese ingredients, such as chicken teriyaki and spring onion. Fresh Japanese flavours pair well with a crisp zero dosage Champagne, with less sugar, it is the purists choice!
For a touch of class, whisk your date off to The Connaught for a bottle of Champagne in its dedicated Champagne Room. A hidden gem in the heart of London, this intimate space seats up to 20 guests. By day, you can enjoy the natural light from overhead, and in the evening, the candles are lit making for a truly romantic atmosphere. A timeless location and, with plenty to choose from on the menu, this is the place to indulge with a bottle of Vintage Champagne. Aged to perfection, the complexity of a Vintage Champagne pairs well with red meat and strong flavours such as truffle, so the black truffle and fontina pizza from its canape menu would be a great pairing.
Launched at the end of last year, Ginger Lily is Pan Pacific’s Champagne bar with a truly impressive Champagne list. With over 100 Champagne houses available to choose from on the menu, and five different Champagnes available by the glass, the bar is the perfect place to take any Champagne aficionado. For something a little different than your classic Brut, try a bottle of Blanc de Blancs Champagne. Meaning ‘white of whites’, Blanc de Blancs Champagne is made purely from white grapes - rather than the red and white blend of a Brut - giving it a zestier flavour.
Set inside Pall Mall’s Grade I listed building, the former wine cellars of the Prince of Wales and the United Service Club have been transformed by Searcy’s into an underground Champagne Bar. The bar has one of the largest selections of magnums in London in an array of different styles, from Brut, to Demi-Sec and Rosé wines. Situated in the West End, with its plush velvet seating, exposed brickwork and vaulted ceilings, this cosy venue is ideal for a pre-theatre aperitif or post-dinner night cap. Pop a bottle of Blanc de Noirs, or ‘white of blacks’, made purely from red grapes, giving it a rich, full-bodied flavour.
For a romantic treat, you can’t go wrong with sweets and Champagne. Cakes & Bubbles, which launched in November 2019 at Hotel Cafe Royal, is the brainchild of famed pastry chef Albert Adrià. Inspired by La Dolça - the dedicated dessert area at his former, well-loved Barcelona restaurant ‘Tickets - Cakes & Bubbles offers guests a dessert and Champagne experience where diners can try a number of Adrià’s exquisite creations alongside a curated Champagne list. Rosé pairs well with berry flavours, so why not try The Rose: lychee, raspberry & rosewater with a Rosé Champagne.
