The Stage

Step into the limelight of The Stage, where the drama unfolds with a spectacular programme dedicated to Champagne and life’s great delights.

Set across three acts, our Champagne bar in London serves a Champagne breakfast, Champagne afternoon tea, as well as a Grand Finale of oysters, caviar and more. The star of The Stage is our reserve collection of Champagne, with more than 35 bottles to choose from and a selection of Champagne cocktails.





The Acts

Act One

The morning scene at The Stage begins with our Champagne Breakfast, accompanied by fresh patisseries from the viennoiserie cart and selections from our à la carte menu. 

Act Two 

Challenging traditional perceptions of flavour and presentation, our Champagne afternoon tea in the West End features handcrafted patisserie artworks and delicious sandwiches, served with fine loose leaf tea from The East India Company.

Enjoy a complimentary glass of Gusbourne Brut with your afternoon tea experience at The Stage.


Grand Finale

Every moment at The Stage is celebrated with joie de vivre. Indulge in signature plates, the finest European charcuterie and French artisan cheese.

The Earl

Known to favour a cocktail of gin and Dubonnet, Queen Elizabeth would likely appreciate this noble touch of British eccentricity with Earl Grey tea and clotted cream.

The Earl includes Buckingham Palace gin, Earl Grey tea, Dubonnet, topped with Veuve Clicquot NV and clarified with clotted cream for a smooth and silky finish. 

When: 16th May 2022 - 12th June 2022

Sovereign’s Choice

Afternoon tea at The Stage welcomes a regal newcomer for the period of The Jubilee Summer Series. Inspired by Her Majesty’s fondness for the classic chocolate biscuit cake, our pâtissier has crafted an elegant tribute fit for a queen.

Sovereign's Choice features a delicate combination of Valrhona chocolate and buttery British shortbread, decorated with a ‘platinum’ shimmer. 

May be purchased separately or as part of the weekend afternoon tea.

When: 16th May 2022 to 12th June 2022.

Queens of The Stage

The Stage is hosting live performances by spectacular female stars of the West End stage. Toast to strong women and try one of our exquisite Champagne cocktails, or perhaps a glass of Champagne from our reserve collection.

When: 28th May 2022. 8pm to 11.45pm

The Roaring 20s 

In 1926, Queen Elizabeth II entered the world as Al Jolson was riding high with the 1926 hit ‘I’m Sitting on Top of The World’. It was the birth decade of jazz, the golden era for excess, the peak of Art Deco. To commemorate, The Stage is journeying back to a bygone era with live jazz, blues, swing and ragtime performances. Flapper fashion is highly encouraged!

When: 21st May 2022.  8pm to 11.45pm


Complimentary bubbles

With afternoon tea, bubbles are essential. Toast to an extra special afternoon at The Stage with a complimentary glass of Gusbourne Brut.
