The recently-launched Coast to Coast menu at the Savoy's American Bar takes guests on a journey across Britain, one cocktail at a time.
It's the perfect spot for cocktails! The term 'American Bar' refers to a bar serving mixed or 'American' style drinks, more commonly known as cocktails.
From South to North, each drink is a vivid reflection of the country's landscapes, folklore and illustrious history, featuring herbs and common ingredients from the area.

Beginning in the Garden of England in Kent and finishing at Castle Rock in Scotland, the menu comprises five 'stops'. So that Vicky and I could get the full experience, we sampled a cocktail from each one.
I recommend you do the same. The journey is like being taken back to childhood fairy stories at bedtime - the most magical time. Except this time you're an adult, it involves booze, and real education about the great UK.
The menu actually looks like an old English story book, with little illustrations to accompany the demystifying cocktail glossary.

Each of the five stops presents several cocktail options and its own area-specific, visually-striking serve. In London, for example, guests are transported to the Savoy's very American Bar which contributed greatly to the birth of classy cocktail culture in the roaring twenties. Cocktails from this area are served on Art Deco mirror trays (perfect for a selfie op, on the advice of outstanding bartender Martin).
