Enter The Victoria Room and be transformed to a bygone era where bow ties and braces rule. This plush British-raj establishment is well known for its amazing cocktails. It’s won cocktail bar of the year for more years than we care to remember, and the barmen are serious about their drinks.
The cocktail list perfectly suits the surroundings. You may like to choose a cocktail from the ‘Parlour’ list – Parlez-vous Francais anyone? By the way, say this to a bartender at The Victoria Room and you’re not asking if they speak french, you’re ordering a cocktail made from fresh green grapes with a touch of St Germain Elderflower Liqueur shaken with Tariquet Blanche Armagnac and Dolin Blanc Vermouth. Or perhaps a choice from the ‘Garden Party’ list is more your style. The Hula Hips and Sugar Daddy impress us. Never fear if you’re the designated driver – they even have a list of non-alcoholic cocktails just for you.
Luxuriate in the glamorous surroundings in your very own chesterfield, relax, soak it up and make the most of those award winning cocktails.
Should you be feeling peckish, their restaurant is well worth checking out. With a selection of Mediterranean inspired dishes designed to share, it’s just the ticket.
Sunday nights are something special at The Victoria Room with their Performance Carnival from 6.30pm.
Also worth noting, The Victoria Room serves High Tea on Saturday and Sunday, between 12 – 5pm. It’s the perfect setting to indulge in this elegant affair. Just be sure to book in advance.
