Why we love it

Enjoy a cocktail masterclass at The Savoy Hotel's legendary and beautiful art-deco American Bar - the oldest surviving cocktail bar in London and recent winner of Best Bar in Europe (and second in the world) at World's 50 Best Bars 2016. It’s the American Bar’s rich history that makes it one of the most iconic cocktail bars in the world.

What's Included?

  • Enjoy a cocktail masterclass for two people at the legendary American Bar or the inventive Beaufort Bar, as part of a group of up to six people
  • Learn to create, and then sample, four classic cocktails each
  • Followed by a three-course meal each at one of The Savoy’s iconic restaurants

Description

Both of The Savoy's legendary cocktail bars are a feast for the eyes and the senses. The American Bar at The Savoy is the longest surviving of London’s bars and one of the most iconic cocktail bars in the world, while the Beaufort Bar was awarded the coveted title of Best International Hotel Bar at Tales of the Cocktail 2015 and is a fabulous art-deco space that pays homage to its theatrical past as a cabaret and burlesque venue.

In 1903 the first truly ‘famous’ bartender arrived at The American Bar, a lady named Ada ‘Coley’ Coleman, whose signature cocktail was the Hanky Panky, still a popular choice today. Ada’s successor was the inspirational Harry Craddock, who not only created a number of classic cocktails but who notoriously compiled these recipes into the legendary Savoy Cocktail book, still regarded today as the bartender’s bible.

A must for those who enjoy classic cocktails, on this masterclass, run by expert mixologists at the American Bar or Beaufort Bar, you’ll enjoy learning about the history of cocktail-making, crafting four classic cocktails, followed by a three-course meal at one of The Savoy’s superb restaurants.
