A place to escape in Knightsbridge
THE PERFECT ESCAPE
We had the delight of staying in a suite at The Berkeley in November last year, you can read all about our stay here.
Part of our stay included drinks in their Blue Bar followed by a three course meal at The Collins Room (another place I would highly recommend).
Some of my favourite restaurants and bars are situated inside hotels. The Blue Bar has shot to the top of one of my favourites.
WHEN TO GO.
We were able to see the Blue Bar in day and night. I would recommend heading for drinks or nibbles of an evening for sure.
The Blue Bar has the most romantic setting with a cosy nook feel. Step into a very dark blue room (hence the name) that has been beautifully decorated.
Perch yourself on a velvet couch for comfort for a more laid back evening or on one of their round tables.
WHAT TO DRINK.
I stuck to the mocktail menu, which blew me away. I honestly had one of the best mocktails – EVER.
In order of the photos;
Neither Shaken nor milky – smooth and subtle strawberries
Grey Goose, La Coste rose, strawberry, rosehip, Laurent-perrier Champagne
Tangy, refreshing and quintessentially English. The best mocktail I have ever had.
Spiced cucumber, elderflower, minted apple juice
Full of tropical fruits and very easy to drink
Grey Goose, Martini Ambrato, lime, cantaloupe melon, passionfruit kombucha
CUP ZERO (NO-ALCOHOL)
Our virgin take on the classic summer
Apple juice, fig jam, citrus cordial, rooibois tea soda
WHO TO TAKE.
The Blue Bar would be the perfect place to take a date in London. Perhaps start for drinks then walk over the lobby for dinner in The Collins Room – exactly what we done.
Even if its just drinks you want, the laid back setting makes it perfect, without feeling rushed or watched.
WHAT TO WEAR.
The dress code is smart casual, however I promise you can put on your best evening outfit and not feel over dressed.
I was about seven months pregnant when we went, so opted for black skinny jeans, black netted jumper and heels. You can never go wrong with barely there sandals.
