    Not as special as the main hotel bar but cheaper and more casual. Good fun and friendly service

    Amazing cocktails in a classic hotel bar atmosphere. Not very experimental but the menu is a walk through the history of mixology.

    All known cocktails are available here there's no need to stick to a menu. They are great but I prefer the Old Fashioned from The Ivy.

    The cocktails were probably the high end of London prices but you can't fault the fabulous service and attention to detail. Cocktails were amazing to top it off.

    The bar is over 125 years old, and it is still THE place for a fancy tipple. Some of the best classic cocktails were created here, so indulge yourself. An elegant experience with a live pianist daily. Read more

    Open for over a century, The American Bar was one of the first "American-style" cocktail bars in London and was once home to legendary bartender Harry Craddock, author of The Savoy Cocktail Book.

    Excellent quality cocktails in salubrious but unpretentious surroundings. Try the Moonwalk cocktail originating from the 1969 recipe to celebrate the moon landing. Classy

    One of the best cocktail bars in the city. If you can find Luca at the bar, sit back, relax and follow your (and his) cocktail heart.

    The Savoy is the Art Deco doyenne of London’s premiere hotels, so chic it has the only right-hand street in the UK leading to its bronzed portal. One Night, their signature cocktail is delicious! Read more

    If you decide to order a Sazerac, be careful not to accidentally end up with the one that costs £5,000.

    Have a Maid in Cuba! Created by Tom Walker at The Savoy, London - Bacardi Superior, lime juice, mint, cucumber, splash of soda, absinthe rinse. I really like cucumber daiquiris and this is next level!
