The Fumoir

Discreetly tucked away in Claridge’s art deco interior, The Fumoir is where those in the know have enjoyed a quiet drink in London since 1929.

By day, sip a cappuccino and nibble on truffle gougères. Come by for pre-theatre drinks such as a signature Fumoir Negroni. Or drop in for a vodka martini nightcap, perfectly mixed and served in an ice-chilled glass. As William Klein portraits gaze down moodily from the walls, this is a place to settle in, enjoy a luxurious cocktail and relish the moment.

Acclaimed artist, architect and designer Thierry Despont poured his passion for the beaux-arts into every detail of The Fumoir. With the atmosphere of a jewellery box, this art deco hideaway is perfectly enhanced by lighting that gleams softly in the Lalique crystal panels.
