This bar is a dark decadent and delicious secret buried in the middle of Claridges. It is so discrete that it is almost travesty having it on this excellent website. Others may disagree but for me The Fumoir has consistently delivered perfection year after year. Claridges offers three drinking experiences, all of which have great panach and totally different atmospheres.... More

Wonderful cocktails and food on the bar menu. One of my favourite hang outs when in London. Staff are very attentive despite this being just a bar.

I went to Claridge's for a business meeting and we were sat at the Fumier Bar. Whilst beautiful Belle Epoque and Art Deco interiors, the service shocking: we had to order our drinks twice and had to ask for the bill three times. Other guests were equally as unpleased often times having to stand up to get the attention of... More

This bar is a great place to pop into for a drink with friends. It sits only about 20 people I think, is busy but not loud and has great music. The drinks were delicious, especially the mocktails. The sharing platters, burger, fries were really great. I had the seafood pasta which was good but didn't have much flavour unfortunately... More

Popped into the Fumoir Bar on Friday afternoon with my husband for a very special glass of champagne. It is so special to visit such a special, relaxed and history soaked bar and to enjoy such a luxurious and yet relaxed and private space in London. Just love it and always so special.

We were living at the St Pancreas, but we dropped by the Fumoir for pre-theatre drinks. When we arrived the bar was full, but they managed to create a couple of spaces for us at the bar, even if being walk-ins and not residents of the hotel. Like like walking into another time, Hemingway Bar at the Ritz, Paris, comes... More

We decided to visit Fumoir for pre-dinner drinks. Service is attentive, but I would probably suggest a little less hands-on than Claridges Bar. I still prefer this bar as it's more intimate and the decor just exudes a lovely touch of class, perfectly complementing the evening. Cocktails are excellent - I had the best whiskey sour I think I've ever... More

Staying in Mayfair

Neighbourhood Profile
Mayfair
Set beside some of London's best parks and home to world-class galleries, luxurious hotels, and famed thoroughfares, the ultra upscale Mayfair is one of London's most exclusive haunts. Here the shopping is haute, the dining is exquisite, and the nightlife is vibrant. A casual stroll through the area’s chic streets will reveal that Michelin stars and chauffeured cars are practically the norm here. Even if you're on a tight budget, this exceptionally well connected swath of Central London is worth exploring, if only for the chance to take a peak at the goings on of upper crust English society.
