new cocktail menu at the beaufort bar

The Savoy’s Beaufort Bar has launched a new cocktail menu that turns the hotel’s history into a series of innovative drinks. Created by head bartender Kyle Wilkinson and bar manager Anna Sebastian, the illustrated tunnel book menu opens with Under The Stars, inspired by Fred Astaire’s dance on the rooftop in the 1920s and includes drinks like Height of Fashion (Remy Martin VSOP, Italian blend, Cocchi Torino and leather) inspired by the first ever hotel lift in London, the Garden of Memories (Don Julio Blanco, passion fruit, agave, St Germain and lime), named after an infamous party where the courtyard was flooded and guests had dinner on a gondola, and the Read All About It! (Johnnie Walker Blue and Black, coffee, banana and paper) inspired by the wartime journalists that would drink in the hidden Tich’s Bar during WWII. So now if you want to uncover the history of The Savoy, you can drink it as well as read it.
