Londonís premier address, The Lanesborough, recently introduced a cigar and cocktail pairing menu. Custom made by the leading figures in the industry, the cocktail and cigar pairings menu features select drinks to complement each cigarís distinctive elements - creating the ideal balance for the smoker.
The Garden Room at The Lanesborough is Londonís most glamorous cigar bar: a discreet outdoor space for just 35 guests to enjoy a cigar and some of Londonís finest cocktails in a luxurious and peaceful environment. Davide Guidi, a master of drinks and the cigar industry, will expand upon The Garden Roomís reputation as a premier spot for connoisseurs of the finer things in life. He will work closely with Maestro Salvatore Calabrese, who previously spent ten years as bar manager at The Library Bar, and who has returned to the hotel in a consulting capacity, adding his years of expertise to the process of creating this consummate pairing menu.
Neil Millington, The Garden Roomís cigar sommelier, chose some of his favorite sticks from the hotelís expansive walk-in humidor to perfectly match the cocktails. In the new menu, Partagas, Cohiba, Montecristo, Romeo Y Julieta, Ramon Allones & San Cristobal are paired with bespoke cocktails designed to perfectly complement each cigarís aroma and flavor. Guests can relax and enjoy this expertly tailored decadence while reclining in leather armchairs amidst the sumptuous surroundings of The Garden Room.
