A lifetime of treats on a Savoy weekend

RHIANNON MCDOWALL enjoys a weekend of luxury at one of the capital’s finest hotels


FTER 35 birthdays and Christmases it’s becoming more and more difficult to come up with ideas for presents for my nearest and dearest, after all there’s only so many picture frames, baskets of smellies and pairs of socks people can take. But when I was given the opportunity to visit the Savoy Hotel for a weekend, a whole new world of treats was unveiled, enough to take care of every birthday, Christmas, anniversary and even baby shower for a long time. It sounds clichéd but The Savoy is not just a hotel, it’s an experience. Whether it’s afternoon tea with a glass of champagne, dinner in one of its two swanky restaurants, its newly established Temptation

Wheel cocktail and desert experience, or a night in one of its luxurious bedrooms – there is something for everyone. My visit coincided with one of my best friends’ birthdays, who joined me for a treat neither of us will forget in a hurry. With its 200 year history and Art Deco splendour, the hotel is a sight to behold. The first thing we did was enjoy and afternoon tea in the elegant Thames Foyer. The huge room is filled with light thanks to a high domed glass ceiling, with an ornate ‘gazebo’ like structure in the centre. We started with a glass of Pink Champagne followed by a colourful quartet of crust-less sandwiches. Each sandwich had a different type of bread slightly, as well as usual the

brown and white there was pesto, and olive bread, which with Coronation Chicken was so delicious we asked for seconds. The scones, neatly wrapped up in a napkin and served with clotted cream and homemade jam and lemon curd, were the lightest and most delicious scones I have ever had. Bearing in mind we had an evening meal booked we decided to take it easy on the pastries and instead opted for the ‘Traditional High Tea’ rather than the Afternoon Tea, which included a savoury dish of asparagus, poached egg and crayfish instead of a larger selection of cakes. That being said, we still found space for the flour-less chocolate cake and Victoria sponge, which were both perfect.

The whole thing was washed down by a pot of tea. With a huge variety on offer I chose the palate cleansing Lemon Verbena while my friend chose the Oolong Tea, famed for being a favourite of the Queen’s. Our great plans to go and explore London fell to the waist side when we saw our room. Huge, light and airy, it boasted a view of the Thames, the London Eye and Big Ben. It had everything you would expect from a five star hotel, with a Nespresso machine, fluffy slippers and bathrobes, and a luxurious bathroom with and a monsoon shower you could stand in for hours. After spending an hour ooh-ing and ahh-ing over the plush room, we headed to the pool, steam and sauna for a relax before heading back down for our evening meal. For dinner we headed to Kaspars, a fish Restaurant towards the back of the hotel which also boasts views of the Thames. We started with a cocktail. I chose tasty gin and basil drink – which is definitely a combo I’ll be trying at home – while birthday girl chose ‘Moonwalk’, a citrusy champagne cocktail to commemorate the Apollo 11 moon landing. As you would expect, the elegant restaurant was definitely a place for celebrating. While I started with scallops and peas, my pal opted for the Lobster Bisque which she said was absolutely stunning. For our main we both opted for Catch of the day, sea bream with a garden peas and the creamiest mashed potato we’ve ever tasted. For our dessert we were taken back into the Thames Foyer where we enjoyed a ‘Temptation wheel’ experience. The menu of more than a dozen deserts and cocktails is arranged on a wheel, which means you make a

choice based on how rich you would like your desert to be, with a range of cocktail options to compliment your desert. This was a fun way to try cocktails we hadn’t considered before, and definitely added some unique charm to our evening. Despite the fact we’d eaten and drunk our weight in food and Champagne the night before, we still had an appetite at breakfast and opted for the Savoy Breakfast, a selection of sweet greats, muffins, toast, and a traditional English breakfast. As you’d expect all was amazing, but the scrambled egg deserves a special mention. It was so fluffy it felt like you were eating whipped cream. Nothing could have been better at the Savoy. So whether your celebrating or not, it’s definitely something everyone should experience – perhaps the perfect treat for someone special in your life...

The Strand


The best Christmas dinner menus in London

Remarkably, it was only last year that the Strand first hung Christmas lights, but they proved a success and happily will be returning for 2016. This year they’re the greenest lights in London, powered by biofuel made from cooking oils leftover from London restaurants. Don’t forget to wander down to the Savoy, whose silver frontage will be topped by lit-up Christmas trees (and treat yourself to a cocktail in the iconic American Bar, or the cosier Beaufort).

4.Glitz and glamour at The Savoy The Savoy is one of those icons that really lives up to its legendary billing – as our reviews of The American Bar, The Beaufort Bar and The Savoy Grill attest. This year, the entire hotel is set to be filled with ludicrously well-dressed party-goers drinking and dancing their hearts out, as champagne corks pop and trumpets blare. Both bars are hosting long NYE evenings, with live entertainment, and, at the Beaufort, live dancing. Go drink your fill in some of the finest bars in town – there's a £60 deposit required, but you'll get a complimentary cocktail on arrival. Elsewhere, they've a five-course meal at Kasper's, the seafood bar and grill, which comes with live entertainment. Afterwards there'll be dancing: old-school elegance at its finest. If that's not quite enough, the beautiful Lancaster Ballroom is hosting a black tie party, which includes a champagne and canape reception, a seven course meal, dinner and dancing.

Howdo you dream up with new cocktails? Cocktails at The Savoy's iconic American bar - In pictures

We have about 60 different whiskies, 30 rums, and 30 gins to work with, as well as different herbs, aromatised wines and spices. You have to understand the tasting profiles of those drinks, and what works with that type of flavour. Sometimes it’s a surprise. Last week I was creating a cocktail for a special event where I infused aromatised wine with absinthe, whisky and infused this with oyster mushrooms. I tasted the raw mushroom and it almost cooked itself. I wanted to throw it out but realised it was tasty and I used it as a garnish.

As the head bartender at the Savoy, how many cocktails do you expected know off the top of your head? To pass the exam to get my job at The Savoy I had to learn 250 classic cocktails, and since then I have picked up more that I have learned or created. Yes, I think I know about 400 and I would be ready for the challenge to see if that's true.

What are your top tips for making the perfect cocktail? It’s like cooking. If you want to make drinks at home its very important to following the recipe and measure everything. I’ve been a bartender for 15 years and I still measure every single drink. If someone comes to my bar three times and orders the same drink, they want consistency.

For instance, absinthe is so strong with an aniseed flavour, and the Sazerac cocktail only needs three drops. Any more, and you’ll cover the whole flavour profile of the drink. If you measure by hand, then you’re very brave. What is the most incredible thing you have been involved in since working at The Savoy?

O Christmas Tea… November 23, 2016 FO O D & D RIN K Publication Date: November Circulation: Monthly unique browsers: 3,100,000

The best meal of the day? No contest—a proper afternoon tea kicks all other comers into touch. It is both comforting and luxurious, being by its nature indulgently surplus to requirements. It’s also the perfect way to carb-load after December’s most physically demanding endurance event: Christmas shopping. If you’re in London for said activity, there are some heavenly versions to be had. Shop Covent Garden, then hit The Savoy’s Thames Foyer for the Ice and Diamonds Festive Afternoon Tea, with Louis Roederer Vintage Rosé cuvée, a carefully curated selection of sandwiches including Wiltshire bone ham with horseradish remoulade and apple cider chutney, cakes, scones, and Boodles-themed patisserie including a Frozen Fantasia opera pink almond macaroon. The whole is served amid a sparkling winter scene with an indoor ice rink and cascading Louis Roederer bauble installation. You just can’t fail to feel Christmassy after all that. If Mayfair is your destination, the Night Before Christmas Afternoon Tea at Sketch is such a treat, featuring their delicious signature sandwiches, scones and jam, Christmas petits gâteaux and a bûche de Noël. From November 26-December 30 at The Ritz, you can listen to carols sung by The Ritz Choir whilst sipping a glass of champagne (there’s a Ritz teddy for children) and taking tea in the hotel’s gilded Palm Court. Marylebone High Street is always a lovely, low-key place to shop: after hitting The Conran Shop, Brora, Emma Bridgewater, Skandium and Daunt Books you should have your list pretty well licked and will have earned tea at the Zetter Townhouse Marylebone, where you can nibble on Christmassy delicacies such as haggis sausage roll with homemade brown sauce, egg nog macaroons, and whiskey and chocolate Yule log. Or hit the Langham for a sparkly Festive Asprey Afternoon Tea, complete with Balvenie whiskey smoked-salmon sandwiches and a fairytale mini gingerbread house. Finally, Charlotte Street Hotel is a place to salve Oxford Street-frayed nerves. But it also makes the perfect post-matinée destination when, on December 6, 8, 27 and 28 it will be serving a special Nutcracker Afternoon Tea at Brasserie Max, featuring (as well as the usual) the prettiest sugar fairy pistachio macaroons and candy cane opera cake.

The American Bar at The Savoy, reviewed: A triumph of evolution


The American Bar at The Savoy, reviewed: A triumph of evolution | London Evening Standard

The Savoy is far from a creaking museum rolling out its most famous exhibits, says David Ellis DAVID ELLIS | 9 minutes ago |  0 comments



Bringing the bar into a new era: head bartender Erik Lorincz

The American Bar at the Savoy is one of many American Bars around the world. It’s not even the only one in London.­american­bar­at­the­savoy­reviewed­a­triumph­of­evolution­a3389556.html

There’s something about that dumbly straightforward moniker that sounds like Paris in the 20s, Fitzgerald with Champagne, or Bette Davis doing that thing with her eyes. Just the ticket to advertise what you’re about if you aren’t feeling creative. For a couple of reasons, though, The Savoy has set itself apart from the others. First, if you say you’re off to The American Bar, no-one thinks it’s time to swing by the Stafford in St James, or the Beaumont in Brown Hart Gardens. The Savoy may as well have copyrighted the name in London. Secondly, according to the ever intriguing World's 50 Best Bars list, the American Bar is the best bar in Europe, and the second best in the world. Big billing, no? Lists like these are, of course, impossible: bars do different things for different people at different times. The dive serving cheap beer and whisky chasers to its pool tables is heaven some nights, but you might not want to propose there. The glimmering deco spot

where men in black tie wrap their white-gloved hands around martini glasses will never fail to impress, but can intimidate. A lot of the time, the best bar is the closest one – few in the world are destinations in the way plenty of restaurants are.


World’s 50 Best Bars 2016: London versus New York

The American Bar is. It has been since Harry Craddock first penned The Savoy Cocktail Book, 86-years-old and still in print, and since the likes of Frank Sinatra washed away glasses of Jack, or since Marilyn Monroe sank Dom Perignon after long press days pretending to get on with Laurence Olivier for The Prince and the Showgirl. And though the place is smart, it doesn’t necessarily wow: there are no gimmicks, no grand set pieces. That’s not the Savoy’s style. Neither, I would have thought, is the awful carpet, but each to their own. What the Savoy does is old world glamour, a little glitz that sidesteps the tackiness. There are photographs on the walls to remind you just whose ghosts you’re sitting next to, and a piano, regularly played, to add a little background to the chatter. The bar is usually busy – impressive given it doesn’t have it’s own entrance. That they don’t take reservations hints at their confidence.  The best bars in London

Still, there are plenty of hotel bars, all with plenty of history. The Savoy earns admiration for its fine balancing act: it simultaneously embraces and rejects its history. Embraces with its look. Rejects Publication Date: November with its menu: bartenders build their reputation here with new Circulation: 12,088,625 monthly unique browsers. ideas, fresh takes, different concepts. You can drink classics here, but they don’t push them like some creaking museum rolling out its most famous exhibits. Instead, head bartender Eric Lorincz is keen on introducing new ideas. He is at first a quiet, concentrated man, but one who opens up with a little prising when it comes to talking drink, and then chatters excitedly about his plans, inspirations, experiments. He can oversee drinks while chatting to customers, jot down an order while tidying the shelves and explain 11/8/2016 The American Bar at The Savoy, reviewed: A triumph of evolution | London Evening Standard the backstory of a cocktail without being a bore about it. Oh, and he can pull of the white jacket/black tie look: one hell of skill in itself. No surprise he was headhunted. With him, the bar has triumphed, after a slump a little while back, because of its evolution.­american­bar­at­the­savoy­reviewed­a­triumph­of­evolution­a3389556.html

No explanation for the carpet: the main bar area

So the drinks themselves, then. Is there much point in describing them? You know the answer: they are exquisitely mixed, thoughtfully built and charmingly presented. Perfection is so dull to right about. I say perfection, but that’s not quite right: the drinks are very pricey: non-alcoholic cocktails, for instance, come in at £11.50, and proper ones run from £16 – £50. Some of the spirits seem a little suspect: Haig Club in a £25 drink is an unconvincing choice, even if the Pirate's Hook is bracingly flavoured. Still, I paid £16 for a double of Aisla Bay last week in a city bar and though that’s a lovely dram, the mark up made me sick (I said so). So the American Bar is expensive, but there are many other places which are a rip off. You won't be ripped off here, you'll just leave poorer. At least they serve healthy portions.

Or the Beef Tartar and Caviar canapé which is served with perfectly triangular crackers and presented in its own caviar tin. Also, with all the glamour of the season, ordinary batter will simply not do so, we’ll be taking a cue from The Savoy‘s King Prawns, which are instead wrapped in the exquisitely complex kadaifi pastry.

Some might almost say that the art of cocktails and bartending was created at the Savoy in the ‘20s, when some of America’s best stirrers and shakers came over to a land where booze wasn’t illegal. Loaded with two bars -- the monochrome American Bar, which was recently voted the Second Best Bar in the world),and the dark and sultry Beaufort Bar -- this place is the definition of classic; it's no surprise that legends like Frank Sinatra and Marilyn Monroe called this their local.

Boodles decks the halls of The Savoy in diamonds and ice October 31, 2016

The Savoy London


British jeweler Boodles is dreaming of a pink Christmas at Fairmont-managed hotel The Savoy in London. This holiday season sees Boodles and The Savoy team for seasonal decor for the second year running (see story). The jeweler and hotel’s team will construct the holiday display on the night of Nov. 19, transforming The Savoy’s entrance hall into a “surprise of diamonds and ice” on the morning of Nov. 20.

Diamonds on ice For this year’s holiday display, Boodles and The Savoy found inspiration in “frozen fantasia.” The display will include the Boodles Christmas tree, decorated in the jeweler’s signature soft pink and ombre and mirrored details to create a “diamond and ice” theme. Ornaments include mirrored deco squares and rectangles and bespoke decorations inspired by Boodles’ most iconic designs.­decks­the­halls­of­the­savoy­in­diamonds­and­ice/

Also within The Savoy’s entry hall, Boodles has placed a pink pillar box next to its Christmas tree. Guests of the hotel will be encouraged to drop a Christmas letter into the post box using Boodles’ cardstock.

Illustration of Boodles' holiday 2016 efforts at The Savoy When the holiday season is over, Boodles’ chairman Nicholas Wainwright will select a card at random. The selected holiday card will be gifted a special piece of Boodles fine jewelry. The theme of diamonds and ice is also continued at the Thames Foyer through a partnership with The Savoy and Champagne house Louis Roederer who has collaborated on an ice rink installation. Inspired by the mirror of a jewelry box, sculptor Gareth Knowles created a life-size ice skater who will pirouette in the center of the bauble-adorned gazebo during the holiday season.
