This unusual champagne bar is located on the concourse level right under the high, vaulted ceiling of St Pancras’ terminal treating its punters to some impressive views of the station. Besides the bar’s iconic location, there’s another impressive feature: It claims to be the longest champagne bar in the world measuring 98 metres.
There are twelve cosy banquettes laid out right along one of the Eurostar platforms and in the middle there is a glass, square bar surrounded by high tables and chairs.The red leather banquettes are equipped with leg heaters and woolly blankets to keep you warm when temperatures drop. (St Pancras station is one big open space after all). And don’t worry about grabbing the attention of the wait staff on the other end of the bar. Each and every table is fitted with a champagne call button if a refill is in order.
The selection of champagnes is as long as the bar itself and ranges from the reasonably priced to bottles that cost a month’s salary. There are also some cocktails on the menu like bellinis and gin cucumber cocktail. If you’re peckish you can opt for smoked salmon, caviar and lobster or the less posher fish and chips and Cumberland sausages and mash.
In all it’s a fun place to indulge a little in the sparkly stuff, even if you’re not waiting for a train.
