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.

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 and was not served with biscuits or petit fours when most casual coffee shops include... More

Favourite places - The Fumoir Bar, Claridges Hotel. It's tucked behind a discrete glass door of the right hand side of the lobby and is in oasis of calm and sumptuous art deco glamour with an extensive drinks menu with 1930s inspired cocktails.

This bar is a dark decadent and delicious secret buried in the middle of Claridges. It is so discrete that it is almost travesty having it on this excellent website. Others may disagree but for me The Fumoir has consistently delivered perfection year after year. Claridges offers three drinking experiences, all of which have great panach and totally different atmospheres.... More

I went to Claridge's for a business meeting and we were sat at the Fumier Bar. Whilst beautiful Belle Epoque and Art Deco interiors, the service shocking: we had to order our drinks twice and had to ask for the bill three times.

Popped into the Fumoir Bar on Friday afternoon with my husband for a very special glass of champagne. It is so special to visit such a special, relaxed and history soaked bar and to enjoy such a luxurious and yet relaxed and private space in London. Just love it and always so special.

Staying in Mayfair

Neighbourhood Profile
Mayfair
Set beside some of London's best parks and home to world-class galleries, luxurious hotels, and famed thoroughfares, the ultra upscale Mayfair is one of London's most exclusive haunts. Here the shopping is haute, the dining is exquisite, and the nightlife is vibrant. A casual stroll through the area’s chic streets will reveal that Michelin stars and chauffeured cars are practically the norm here. Even if you're on a tight budget, this exceptionally well connected swath of Central London is worth exploring, if only for the chance to take a peak at the goings on of upper crust English society.
