One thing that you already know about me is that I’m incredibly smitten with glamour and champagne, so there is no wonder that I’ve fallen madly in love with GILT.
GILT Champagne lounge, located in London’s Jumeirah Carlton Tower Hotel in the heart of Knightsbridge, offers a drink menu of 10 Champagnes, several specialty champagne cocktails as well as the typical bar drinks.
The 1940’s replica brass doors open at 6pm to welcome guests in to relax on sumptuous velvet chairs, sip champagne and nibble on a selection of decadent snacks such as langoustine tempura and foie gras pancakes with plum sauce.
The intimate lounge is bathed in hand-blown Murano glass screens made up of 4,500 glass balls and a chandelier made of 140 larger Murano glass spheres created by New York artist Suzan Etkins.
The astonishing brass briquette floor tiles from De Ferranti’s Alchemy Collection set the foundation for this seductive venue.
Displayed on the bar is a large hand-cast glass champagne bowl filled with Pommery Champagne bottless. The luxurious lounge also features lucite tables, cream leather banquettes of soft Scottish leather contrasting with chocolate velvet mohair seating.
Can you imagine a more perfect place to sip champagne?
