The champagne bar at St Pancras is perfect for a glass of fizz at the end of a business trip
The champagne bar at St Pancras station – or St Pancras Champagne Bar by Searcys– can be found inside the train station which is located to the north of town.
And whilst many travelers may enjoy a glass of champagne or two here before jumping on to the Eurostar to Paris, there’s always good reason to enjoy this champagne bar at the end of a successful business trip.
This champagne bar is the longest in Europe (98 meters) and if you’re visiting during the winter months, soothing art deco lighting, heated leather seating and blankets ensure maximum comfort.
Business travelers can also sample a whole host of champagnes here with a British focus such as the Searcys Selected Cuvée Brut and the Searcys Selected Cuvée Rosé.
Or they can sip on English sparkling wines whilst taking in the station’s formidable Victorian Gothic architecture which was restored in 2007.
This includes an impressive wrought iron and glass ceiling that sprawls majestically over the bar area and ensures guests can unwind in iconic London style.
Food at the champagne bar includes platters of fresh cheeses, meats and shellfish such as Jersey Rock oysters on beds of crushed ice.
There’s also native lobster, smoked mackerel croquettes and Oscietra Caviar.
Otherwise, a brasserie (St Pancras Brasserie by Searcys) here serves signature and healthy dishes and 20s classics that have been inspired by the station’s gorgeous decor and are served in private, intimate booths.
Londoners can also make use of the Champagne School here which launched recently and includes masterclasses and introductions to the elegant and historical world of ‘Champagne’ – undoubtedly one of the world’s most refined and celebrated drinks.
Hailing originally from the Champagne region in northern France and the first Champagne wine was actually made from Pinot Noir.
Over time a sparkling version was introduced followed by the modern ‘brut’ style which involved using less sugar and is the drier version that we all know of and enjoy today.
