So what should we know about this new bar in Harrods?
This is the latest in a flurry of new openings and activity at the Knightsbridge store, coming hard on the high heels of Harrods’ Angelo Musa patisserie and Jimmy Choo cafe openings. It’s the Champagne house’s largest stand-alone Champagne bar in Europe with seats for 34 up at the counter and at tables dotted around the bar (including some great people-watching tables by the window).
Where is it?
You’ll find the bar on the ground floor of the store, towards the rear next to Kylie Cosmetics. Entrances 2 and 2a are the nearest and it’s pretty well signposted from there.
Where should we sit?
If there’s a group of you, then the tables by the window overlooking Basil Street would probably be best – otherwise it’s up at the bar. That said, we did notice that the ends of the bar are designed in such a way that they’d be great for a group of four (see the pic below).
So what’s on the menu? Champagne, obviously…
By the glass, bottle and magnum, this is a place to delve into Moet’s cellars with everything from a glass of non-vintage Champagne at £16 up to a 1959 Grand Vintage Magnum at £4,400 on offer.
But there’s also quite an enticing bar snacks menu, most of which we had a go at.
Anything else we should know?
This is a bit of a left-field one, but we did note just how low the calorie count was on all of the bar snacks here. The lobster bites were 81 calories and most of the dishes clocked in at under 400 calories. If you fancy a drink and a bar snack and still want to fit into that body con Mugler dress or Celine suit you’ve had your eye on, this might be the perfect place for you.
We’re rather partial to a good in-store bar (more of our favourites can be found here) so the arrival of a rather beautiful new Champagne bar that’s easy to dive into is something to be welcomed. Sure, it’s a pricey treat, but if you’re already shopping in Harrods, we’re going to presume the cost of a glass of fizz isn’t something that’s going to cause you too much stress.
