Description: Every grand hotel needs a spectacular bar. The Rivoli Bar is one of the best, reborn in glorious art deco style. A symphony of camphor wood, satinwood, alabaster, gold leaf and Lalique glass, the atmosphere here changes throughout the day. Intimate yet comfortable, The Rivoli Bar is a dramatic and beautiful contrast to The Ritz house style and a genuine revelation. Enjoy a light lunch or supper and experience the delicious cocktails or the Champagne of the month. Monday to Saturday 11:30am - 12midnight Sunday 12:00pm - 10:00pm The dress code of The Ritz reflects the ambience and style of the different areas of the hotel. In The Ritz Restaurant and The Palm Court, gentlemen are required to wear a jacket and tie, with the exception of breakfast; jeans and sportswear are not permitted. Smart casual attire is requested for The Rivoli Bar and The Long Gallery. Please note that sports shoes are not permitted in The Ritz Restaurant, The Rivoli Bar or The Palm Court at any time.

After the most amazing meal, we decided to retire to the bar to relax with a gin and tonic, it was like stepping back in time, great atmosphere and service!

“Good but expensive !!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014

Visited the bar whilst waiting for our afternoon tea slot. Lovely surroundings and good service but a little overpriced. Wait for the champagne in the Palm court with your tea its cheaper .

“Excellent experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2014

We recently visited the Ritz to attend the Rivoli Bar for some afternoon drinks, the whole atmosphere was fantastic as well as the staff were extremely friendly and helpful

This place is well worth a visit if you would like to have a relaxed afternoon surrounded beautifully designed furnishings

I have recently added a blog about my trip there, so it will give you an idea of what to expect

“Fabulous Cocktails - Spoil Yourself !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2014

We visited the Rivoli Bar earlier in the week prior to a Film Preview event at BAFTA and it was a fabulous experience. Really atmospheric in an art-deco way it was a great way to spend an hour soaking in the ambiance.

The service was impeccable and we got carried away and enjoyed the first cocktails so much we had another ! Each drink was served with a selection of "nibbles" to enjoy - expensive as you would expect but as a one-a-year treat - just do it !!!

“squashed in a corner”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2014

Long planned celebration of my birthday and daughter's divorce, plus meeting up with her brother and his new girlfriend, did not live up to expectations. Not one of the three doormen lounging in the entrance could be bothered to open the door to the cocktail lounge for us and when we arrived we were seated at table for two in a corner - despite saying we were expecting two others. The promised table for four did not materialise although tables did become vacant.

The cocktails were good though.
