Description: Every grand hotel needs a spectacular bar. The Rivoli Bar is one of the best, reborn in glorious art deco style. A symphony of camphor wood, satinwood, alabaster, gold leaf and Lalique glass, the atmosphere here changes throughout the day. Intimate yet comfortable, The Rivoli Bar is a dramatic and beautiful contrast to The Ritz house style and a genuine revelation. Enjoy a light lunch or supper and experience the delicious cocktails or the Champagne of the month. Monday to Saturday 11:30am - 12midnight Sunday 12:00pm - 10:00pm The dress code of The Ritz reflects the ambience and style of the different areas of the hotel. In The Ritz Restaurant and The Palm Court, gentlemen are required to wear a jacket and tie, with the exception of breakfast; jeans and sportswear are not permitted. Smart casual attire is requested for The Rivoli Bar and The Long Gallery. Please note that sports shoes are not permitted in The Ritz Restaurant, The Rivoli Bar or The Palm Court at any time.

….but when in England, you really should have local draft beer. The Rivoli has impeccable art deco decor with excellent service and staff who genuinely recognize you when you return. The added cost is worth the experience, but I'd rather have the option of a Fullers London Pride.

The bar isn't huge and is seated only therefore if you want to guarantee a space then I recommend booking a table in advance. The interior is worth the visit alone as it exudes sumptuous and opulent art deco credentials that make it a feast for the eyes.

The sensory overload continues with an incredibly diverse cocktail and drinks menu. The drinks are pricey but the surroundings, service, quality and attention to detail cannot be faulted. If you are just having cocktails then one is served with complimentary snacks that are regularly replenished!

The food that I saw looked good and others have reviewed that element. We were dining so didn't indulge.

Its a great place to start if you are going out for a posh dinner somewhere and v impressive for out of town friends.

Our champagne cocktails were 20 quid each but worth every penny. Please go and indulge. You're worth it!

My friend and I sipped on champagne, immersed in the bygone era of elegant glamour, and beautiful furnishings. The Swan & Figure bronze coloured pieces of artwork were stunning as you walked in to the Bar area. Superb staff, first class service and what one would expect. Definitely returning!

I came here with two guests and had a wonderful afternoon. The service, food and cocktails were all first class. Out of all the places we went in our few days in London, my guests enjoyed The Rivoli Bar most of all.
