I was here for a drink alone while waiting on friends to finish shopping. There was a great festive atmosphere, with carol singing in the voyer. The bar was not the most comfortable bar for lounging in but the staff were more than friendly.

I visited for a cocktail after work with a friend and although we enjoyed the treat I would not return. The atmosphere was lovely. It's an amazing place - very warm and cozy with a live pianist. Drinks were superb and came with nibbles. My gripe is that we were sat down for at least 30mins before getting a drink,... More

We had drinks and lunch here whilst staying in the hotel. It was a pleasure to be in such elegant surroundings. Our drinks and club sandwich with fries were well presented and could not have been bettered. This is a wonderful venue.

After a successful meeting in London I met my wife and her friend and suggested a drink in the Ritz to celebrate. The flunky at the entrance to the bar denied us entry as my wife was wearing brightly coloured 'sketcher' shoes which he designated as trainers. Now many high class venues have a dress code but if, for instance,... More

Wow wow and wow what an exquisite bar from a bygone era, sumptuous and perfect service, my Churchill cocktail was sublime! Ok parts are OTT and think it's time the pink carpet was moved on in the entrance but overall a fabulous experience!

Staying in St. James's

Neighbourhood Profile
St. James's
Perennially fashionable since the days of Henry VIII, the aristocratic “Clubland” of St James's is a premier destination for high end craft and bespoke design. Here you’ll lose count of the Royal Warrants (which indicate that the Royal Family patronizes the establishment) seen in shop front windows, even during a short stroll to bordering Green Park or St James’s Park. With the brightly lit and constantly buzzing junction of Piccadilly Circus at its northeast corner and none of Central London too far away, this is an surprisingly central and accessible part of town, especially given its prosperous demeanor.
