With a ‘Press for Champagne’ button glittering temptingly on every table, it’s no surprise that this place serves more bubbly than any other restaurant in the UK. Relax into a luxurious booth in the glamorous dining area and simply press the button whenever your glass runs dry! Decadence is at the heart of any visit here and we're always utterly seduced by the whole experience. Last month we indulged in Truffled Potato and Mushroom Vareniki, Lobster, Crab and Shrimp Pelmeni and Salmon Tartare Imperial - all of which pairs perfectly with Champagne - it was Bollinger Special Cuvée Brut for us. One for when you're looking to impress!

Champagne by the glass starts at £13.75

Champagne + Fromage

With a relaxed bistro feel, Champagne + Fromage’s three London locations each serve rustic French food alongside an impressive selection of grower Champagne. Menu highlights include tartines, wonderful desserts, and, of course, more cheese than you’ll know what to do with!

Kettner’s Townhouse

Originally opened by Auguste Kettner, personal chef to Napoleon’s nephew, Kettner’s Townhouse played host to Oscar Wilde, Agatha Christie, Robert DeNiro and even Winston Churchill, before closing its doors many years ago. Now, the Soho institution is back, and it’s just as glamorous as you dreamed it would be - head to the Champagne bar to marvel at the original mosaic flooring while you enjoy a glass of bubbly or a luxurious ‘Champagne Tea’.
