The 20 most beautiful bars in London

The Fumoir at Claridge’s

The dimly-lit Fumoir bar at Claridge’s has such a timeless feel, you half expect to walk in and find Ava Gardner and Grace Kelly sipping Martinis on the burgundy leather stools.

Framed by Art Deco lights, the back bar is home to so many exquisite decanters it looks could be mistaken for a perfume cabinet. With action centred around the marble horshoe-shaped bar, the Fumoir’s opulent aubergine décor and crystal lighting was designed by Thierry Despont.

The tiny bar has been serving cocktails for the duration of Claridge’s 200-year history. Formerly a cigar and cocktail bar, hence its name, the three-stool bar serves “era-defining cocktails” with a twist, forgotten classics and future classics.

Exclusive to The Fumoir, its Saffron sidecar is a blend of Martell Cordon Blue Cognac, saffron infused Cointreau, lemon juice and fresh pear.
