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.

“Small Bar, good service but average drinks”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 August 2014

We recently stayed at the Ritz and our only disappointment was the Rivoli Bar, the service was ok but the drinks weren't up to the standard that you would expect in a five star hotel, on our second night we went out elsewhere for pre-dinner drinks.

“art deco”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 August 2014

a nice bar with friendly and attentive staff.the table snacks were tasty which partly makes up for paying £19 for a cup of irish coffee and £9.50 for a glass of guinness

“Timeless Luxury”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 August 2014

If you've never been you must give the Rivoli Bar a try, just through the lobby of the Ritz Hotel on the right hand side, a small intimate bar that has seen a few staff changes over the past ten years which has resulted in a few changes on the cocktail list sadly and maybe lost a little of the friendly feel that it had for many years. It's still however one of the best in class. Prices are as you would expect on the high side, but someone has to pay for all that Gold Leaf and it's unique. Ritz also sell a selection of their own label Champagne and Wine alongside an extensive cocktail list.
