Secreted inside the timeless glamour of Claridge's art deco interior, The Fumoir bar is the quintessential hidden gem. Slip into this seductive space and let our expert bartenders introduce you to a treasure chest of liquid history. Here, era-defining cocktails are twisted, forgotten classics are reconstructed and new passions are ignited. Whether it's the setting for a post-show gossip with drinks, a leisurely pre-dinner aperitif or an intimate nightcap, this place soon feels very much your own. Regular guests cherish it as a precious mystery to be kept just for those in the know. We perfectly understand if you also want to keep it a secret.
