Curating luxury for the discerning traveller

Travel-themed pop up opens its doors in Searcys, St. Pancras


The new luxury concept takes guests on a summer getaway – without ever leaving their seats

Europe’s longest champagne bar is being transformed this summer into a pre-holiday lounge that celebrates the cuisine of 12 European locations. It joins The Art of Travel Afternoon Tea which launched earlier this summer, and includes a French-themed option for afternoon tea which includes a French gâteau, Belgian mousse, and a Swiss meringue, all served in a travel suitcase and to be enjoyed before a quick trip or post-return on the Eurostar.

Opening this week, The Art of Travel pop-up will feature twelve private booths in the Champagne bar each being transformed into a famous European destination with a matching colour scheme and adornments; of the locations featured, some are reachable via a short journey on the Eurostar, such as Paris and Amsterdam, whilst other, more far-flung destinations include Porto and San Remo. In partnership with Veuve Clicquot and Sipsmith Gin, Searcy’s have not only created a champagne menu the likes of which they are already world-famous for, but also have created a number of bespoke cocktails for the event, including a special fusion cocktail that brings the two brands together in ‘Take on the French 75’, all available to order from a delightful, passport-themed menu. Reims, the home town of Veuve Clicquot, is also one of the European destinations brought into the heart of London by Seacrys.

Further adding to the sophisticated atmosphere and beautiful Victorian architecture, Seacrys have also partnered with suitcase company Globe-Trotter, who have created a stunning display which showcases their new Riveria collection of luggage, bringing the romanticism of travel by train into the heart of the experience.
