• Champagne Dinners at Claridge's
  • Champagne Dinners

    Claridge’s champagne dinners are a celebration of the art of the marques, an education and a delightful social occasion, wrapped into one stylish evening in the hotel’s private dining room.

    Each dinner focuses on a particular champagne house, with the opportunity to taste five different cuvées. The evening starts at 7pm with canapés and a first glass of champagne, before you take a seat with the other guests at the long dining table for a four-course dinner. The dishes on the menu are specially created by executive chef Martyn Nail to produce fabulous combinations when paired with four different styles of champagne.

    The evening is co-hosted by the cellar master or an ambassador of the featured champagne house, along with Claridge’s sommelier Thomas Roger. The marque is introduced at the beginning and the food pairings are described. Throughout the evening, many stories are shared about the history, traditions and personalities involved in the life of a champagne house.
