The award-winning Rivoli Bar at The Ritz London has launched an exquisite and visually striking champagne cocktail as part of its summer menu: THE TALLULAH, a cocktail to celebrate a legendary moment of Ritz history.

220px-Tallulah_Bankhead_1941Served in an extraordinary bespoke ‘glass slipper’, The Tallulah has been created by head bartender Walter Pintus, and commemorates the moment in Ritz history back in 1951 when American actress Tallulah Bankhead sipped Champagne from her slipper during a press conference to celebrate her arrival in London. The Tallulah is an enticing and elegant blend of Soshu Japanese spirit, Jasmine Pearl tea, Cinzano Bianco, geranium essence and PIPER-HEIDSIECK Champagne, and each beverage will be accompanied by a numbered scroll, allowing guests to take away a little piece of Ritz history for themselves.

Drink in the Gorgeous 1920’s Designed Bar

Imagine walking into an interior, a shining gem of late 1920’s design, The Rivoli Bar is replete with Murano glass chandeliers are suspended from gilded ceiling domes, whilst panelled walls in polished camphor wood veneer are decorated with delicate Lalique glass insets originally made for the Orient Express trains. The windows, each etched with an art deco emblem, overlook the Piccadilly arcade allowing full daylight during lunch service, but with the lights dimmed, cocktail hour enjoys a more romantic ambience.

The cocktail bar has an onyx marble counter lit from above and below giving the glasses, bottles and silver shakers a brilliant sparkle. Mirrored panels in gold and silver leaf, designed in the style of the 1920s Parisian artist Jean Dunard, cleverly reflect the light and are further enhanced by a gold leaf Art Deco ceiling frieze while, at each end of the room, there are gold and copper silver bas relief inspired by the famous Yugoslav sculptor Mestrovic. A polished bamboo floor covered with Art Deco designed rugs completes the design.
