The American Bar
Well, it’s got to be on our list hasn’t it? So, here’s to The American Bar – Best Hotel Bars London.
No other bar in London has the fame, the fortune, the fabulous décor, the fantastic cocktails that this one does.
Despite the Savoy’s recent multi-million pound refurbishment program, the American Bar – one of our best hotel bars in London – has retained its art deco style and its unparalleled wow-factor.
It’s not intimate, it’s not discreet, but it really is impressive. It’s got history too… this where back in the 1930s Harry Craddock invented The White Lady cocktail and wrote his definitive tome; The Savoy Cocktail Book. To this day their cocktails are still amongst the best to be had, made expertly with the finest ingredients – as you would expect from the prices. And, fittingly as the bar which grew to fame in the jazz age, you’ll still find a pianist playing classic Jazz here every evening
One of the world’s greatest hotels, one of the world’s greatest bars. What’s not to like? Possibly the fact it is too much of a tick box bar, where tourists and rubberneckers arrive to have just one cocktail before breaking the bank. A destination where queuing is common, albeit in amazing surroundings. A tourist site rather than a refuge. But having said that, it is one of those bars that you really rewards a visit – even if it is just for one night only. If you’re looking for something a little more intimate and less showy we also highly recommend the Beaufort Bar at The Savoy.
