Begging for bubbles? Check out these establishments, each of which has created a unique Champagne serve in celebration of the day
To celebrate Champagne Day on Friday 22 October, Tempus and the Champagne Bureau UK has partnered with three of London’s top Champagne venues, Ginger Lily at Pan Pacific, The Stage at The Londoner, and St Pancras Brasserie and Champagne Bar by Searcys, who have each created a unique Champagne serve in celebration of the day.
If you want to get your bubbly fix, here are the best ways to do so in the capital:
Ginger Lily at Pan Pacific
Bottling the buzz and excitement of Singaporean bar culture for London, Pan Pacific’s dedicated Champagne Bar, Ginger Lily offers a premium drinks experience, boasting an extensive Champagne list from over 200 houses and the largest list of by-the-glass bubbles in the City.
For Champagne Day, Bar Manager, Francesco Putignano has created ‘The Ginger Lily’ a serve of Champagne accompanied by a parmesan crisp, and three raspberries finished with icing sugar.
‘The Ginger Lily’ available at Ginger Lily exclusively on Friday 22 October, Champagne Day
The Stage at The Londoner
The Stage Champagne Bar at Leicester Square’s hotly anticipated new hotel, The Londoner, is launching a new Champagne Afternoon Tea this autumn and will be offering an exclusive preview of this on Champagne Day, 22 October, with patisseries by Executive Pastry Chef, Dale DeSimone.
Challenging traditional perceptions of flavour and presentation, the Champagne afternoon tea in the West End features handcrafted patisserie artworks and delicious sandwiches, served with fine loose-leaf tea from The East India Company.
One of the pairings is a fruit caviar cake with chocolate, complete with edible spoon, that pairs perfectly with Champagne.
