Named in honour of the French writer and philosopher, who famously spent six years exiled in London, Crowne Plaza London: The City's Voltaire Cocktails & Champagne Bar is the perfect subterranean spot within the sublime hotel.
The bar offers a refined gourmet burgers and drinks menu by evening, but during the day, serves a stunning range of Afternoon Tea: serving as a much needed antidote to an exhaustingly busy day of shopping and sightseeing in central London, or the perfect business meeting with a twist.
Voltaire sits in the basement of the regal hotel, and since it served as a prison in the days of King Henry VIII it still retains a number of private cells and vaults, which have been decorated with contemporary chic furnishings. The atmosphere, teamed with the fabulous selection of foods and drinks available in their Afternoon Tea offering will surmount to an unforgettably stylish afternoon.
The vaults are heated and have their own music systems, temperature controls and table service. There’s also complimentary wifi, meaning social media addicts will get to share their experience with the world as it unfolds.
Voltaire at Crowne Plaza: the City is located in Blackfriars, within a minute’s walk of Blackfriars underground station. With Shakespeare’s Globe, Victoria Embankment and the bulk of London’s primary attractions within walking distance, there’s no better location to enjoy some tea, cakes and scones whilst soaking up everything the city has to offer.
Please Note: This Afternoon Tea offer is not available on Bank Holidays or on special celebration days such as, but not limited to, Mother's, Father's or Valentines Day.
