- – The spotlight on an extensive champagne collection from over 50 Champagne houses by glass, bottle and magnum.
- – A new seafood bar from caviar to oysters and shellfish.
- – Bookings now available at www.stpancrasbysearcys.co.uk
The landmark space on the station’s upper concourse has been updated with décor that is carriage-inspired to reflect its location using a palette of deep rail blue and tan, with copper and brass detailing and signature geometric tiling throughout.
The winged seating area have been fully transformed with new velvet clad booths, installed to create snugs and private spaces, suitable for both groups and individual guests, complete with striking marble top tables. Movable furnishings have been chosen to give the space flexibility for seasonal activations, pop-ups and collaborations.
Putting the spotlight on Searcy’s extensive champagne collection of bottles and magnums, the bar’s signature ‘Press for Champagne’ buzzers – the much imitated but original in London – remain.
A new seafood bar has been installed and features all-day menu, with the new hero dishes including the seafood platter.
Paul Jackson, Searcys’ Managing Director says, “In the year we celebrate our milestone 175th anniversary, we have invested in our beloved Champagne Bar at St Pancras. The iconic setting is steeped in history and that’s something that’s really informed the redesign. We wanted to retain all the heritage details whilst offering the best indulgent moments for all our guests in a bar that really showcases our extensive champagne, offers a new food menu and gives our guests a fantastic experience.”
Wendy Spinks, Commercial Director at the station’s operating company HS1 adds, “We’re delighted to welcome the re-opening of Champagne Bar by Searcys following its extensive refurbishment. Nestled among the station’s world-famous artwork and architecture, it has long been a must-visit destination. The beautifully updated space will invite groups of all sizes to meet over a glass of bubbles, whether meeting friends and family or starting a journey on one of the station’s many transport links in style.”
St Pancras Champagne Bar by Searcys is now open seven days a week, with space available for bookings and walk-ins.
