My partner and I reserved a table before our pre theatre meal whilst staying at the hotel. I felt I had walked back in time-stunning. We were really dressed up, the whole experience was glamorous, the staff were knowledgeable about the champagne we had and The Ritz 110 cocktail was the best cocktail I've ever tasted. I could smell the... More

We dropped in after dinner for a quick drink and ended up staying for a couple. The decor is fascinating, it feels like you're in another world, not in the middle of London. The staff were really kind and very helpful with drinks recommendations.

My husband I stopped at the Ritz London for some lunch at the Rivoli bar. You don’t need a reservation to have lunch here it’s a walk in table service. On arrival we were greeted and directed to the bar. Because we had travelled from Birmingham to London we had our trolley cases and there is a room available to... More

We popped into the Rivoli Bar following a disappointing dinner elsewhere and it saved the night! We each enjoyed a beautifully made cocktail and were spoilt with a tray of petit four! The staff were fun with just the right amount of chat and respect for privacy! We will definitely return.

My spouse and I had drinks there two nights on our recent trip to London - our favorite cocktail place out of 10 upscale bars visited. Besides the gorgeous surroundings, the bar is quiet, servers very professional, drinks wonderful (tad high even for London). Snacks kept being replenished, almost didn't want to go to dinner next door. My husband had... More

Family cocktails to celebrate a family birthday. Expensive but well worth the cost because of the diversity and excellence of the Cocktails. They appear to have cut back a bit on the free nuts etc but this is still a good watering hole, especially if you enjoy the live musical accompaniment.

Staying in Mayfair

Neighbourhood Profile
Mayfair
Set beside some of London's best parks and home to world-class galleries, luxurious hotels, and famed thoroughfares, the ultra upscale Mayfair is one of London's most exclusive haunts. Here the shopping is haute, the dining is exquisite, and the nightlife is vibrant. A casual stroll through the area’s chic streets will reveal that Michelin stars and chauffeured cars are practically the norm here. Even if you're on a tight budget, this exceptionally well connected swath of Central London is worth exploring, if only for the chance to take a peak at the goings on of upper crust English society.
