The Foyer & Reading Room

For many visitors to Claridge’s, the Foyer is the first thing that captures their imagination. In the centre of the room a striking Chihuly sculpture hangs like a chandelier. The walls shimmer with original art deco mirrors. Music drifts from the grand piano. It is here that breakfast, lunch, dinner and afternoon tea are served, as well as our inventive twists on classic cocktails.
