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.

It's easy to walk right by The Fumoir Bar, so look for the silver art deco grillwork which is the door of entry into a wonderful hideaway. We enjoyed a scotch after the theatre and it was very private and reserved.... nice not to have...More

This is a beautiful and relaxing bar for a quiet drink. However, the nibbles were quite basic and we expected more for the price paid for the drinks. Our first bowl of nuts consisted mainly of crumbs. I was shocked that a cappucino was £7.50...More
