Want to spoil your loved one this Valentine’s Day, then look no further than one of London’s most beautiful and historic hotels – The Savoy. From a romantic five-course dinner at Kaspar’s to champagne in the golden alcoves of Beaufort Bar, The Savoy will help to elevate a Valentine’s date into an unforgettable occasion.
Kaspar’s at The Savoy
With glittering chandeliers, mirrors and polished marble floors the exquisite Art Deco inspired restaurant Kaspar’s at The Savoy is a beautiful spot to take a date on Valentine’s Day. This year, the restaurant will be offering a set menu for £95 per person which features most luxurious ingredients including oysters, gold, lobster tail, truffle and champagne. Upon arrival guests will receive a glass of Rose? Champagne followed by a five course menu.
Examples from the Valentine’s Day menu include:
Intermediate Plate – Lobster Tail – Grapefruit | Yoghurt | Bisque Espuma
Principle Plate – Black Angus Tenderloin – Prawn | Morrel | Bordeaux Jus
Dessert – Lychee & Vanilla Panna Cotta – Raspberry Compote | Rose
Simpson’s in the Strand
To add a touch of theatre to Valentine’s Day guests at Simpson’s in the Strand can order 28 days dry aged roast rib of Scottish (£38) from the silver domed trolley which is wheeled ceremoniously to the table and carved in front of the guests. While this tradition began to ensure that that chess players could be served at their tables without interrupting their concentration on game, today it adds a fun spectacle to a romantic Valentine’s Date. The performance continues with a Baked Alaska (£16) of vanilla ice-cream with mixed candied fruits, cranberry sauce and an impressive brandy flambe?.
After dinner, the Knight’s Bar beckons with winter cocktails such as a crisp and dry Mineral Martini (Vodka, oyster shell, dry sherry, sea essence – £15) or the rich and luscious Fig (Bourbon, fig, spice, lemon, wormwood – £14) offering a tempting night cap.
The dramatic jet-black and burnished gold décor of the romantic Beaufort Bar exudes the glamour of a time when stars graced the renowned cabaret stage at The Savoy. Its newly launched Music, Magic and Drama menu celebrates this theatrical history and it’s ‘Music’ section is designed for the early evening and evokes the bubbly, sociable and expectant mood felt at the start of a night out through a menu of light mixed drinks. This section also features an impressive selection of vintage and non-vintage champagne available by the glass and bottle.
For those looking to prolong the evening in the Beaufort Bar, guests can choose cocktails from the Magic and Drama sections. The former uses mystifying techniques in the construction of its drinks, as well as liquids that have been manipulated on the way to the bottle through added botanicals, fermentation or fortification. The latter focuses on dark, atmospheric drinks that take guests late into the evening and explores the more potent spirits such as whisky, Calvados, Armagnac, grappa and Cognac.
