Luxurious surroundings in the Art Deco style and innovative drinks are not the only reason to visit Beaufort Bar at London’s Savoy hotel.
The bar itself is beautiful and is located on the site of a former cabaret of the hotel, where many famous names performed. The tradition of live performances and entertainment in this area continue to be pursued, so here you can see an evening performance of known and unknown artists, as well as a monthly evening dedicated to cabaret and burlesque. The news that we present to you this time, are not related to performance or renovation. This bar has just launched a new cocktail menu, which features beautiful handmade and cut illustrations. This menu not only illustrates cocktails – ot gives them life, as is done in the style of pop-up books.
Combining traditional and contemporary styles and techniques in working with ink, pencil and digital color, artist Joe Wilson and expert cutting paper Helen Friel, presented the creations of award-winning Head Bartender Chris Moore in the right way.
‘The drinks range from light at the beginning of the book to dark at the end,’ Helen Friel tells LS:N Global. ‘I hope the book conveys not only the ingredients but also the mood of each drink.’
At the start of menu, there are soft drinks, followed by a mixture of fruit and sweet drinks, and at the end of strong drinks, with spicy notes and rich flavors.
Included in the menu are the Beaufort Bar’s popular Character Cocktails and other entirely unique creations such as the Impressionist, a dramatic cocktail dedicated to Claude Monet and served with a smoking rose, and Ratification, incorporating Martini Rosato pressure infused with strawberries.
The limited edition menu, of which there are only 1000 copies, can be bought for £50 ($80) from Savoy Tea or the Beaufort Bar itself.
