West End
Bar / Restaurant

France has some of the best exports that we can't live without: good smelly cheese, creamy and delightful; and champagne, crisp, bubbly and perfect for the fanciest occasion. Champagne + Fromage have married these two delights and created a shop and bistro that's entirely cheese and wine. Their focal point is their champagne which has won over 25 awards. Clueless bubbly lovers are given a chance to learn their way around the treasured grape with a monthly champagne tasting session. Enjoy their sixteen different champagnes and take part in the champagne afternoon tea which adds fizz to little finger sandwiches.

Image of St Pancras Grand Champagne Bar

Kings Cross

Putting some glamour back into railway travel, the 96m champagne bar at St Pancras station is touted as the longest champagne bar in Europe but in winter months it could also be known as the coldest champagne bar, thanks to its large open entrances. But a glass of bubbly is a much better send off than a Big Mac and Coke. And the design of the bar, heated banquette seating and superb view of St Pancras's vaunted ceiling and passers-by make it a keeper on Fluid's list even in the cold months.

Image of The Vaults at Voltaire

City of London

Whilst vaults may conjure up images of massive metal doors with spinning locks that never let you leave, the Grade II listed Vaults at Voltaire are completely different. Take a former jail, give it a refurbish with some plush sofas and you have a champagne lover's dream. The Vaults at Voltaire can be proud to say that they house the most extensive list of Pommery champagne which is legendary in France. Sit in the oval vaults or at the bar and enjoy good company, drink over twenty elite champagnes, an array of cocktails and smoke Cuban cigars amongst the elite clientele.

Shepherds Bush

Adding a touch of glamour to the luxury Westfield London Shopping Centre, Shepherds Bush, Searcys Champagne Bar is the social heart of The Village. Surrounded by the likes of Gucci, Dior, Louis Vuitton, Tiffany & Co. and Prada, it's somewhere to watch the world go by. Combining stylish, oyster-colored leather with polished nickel, punctuated by an ornate chandelier, the opulent décor marks the venue as one of the top bars in London for atmosphere alone. It's the perfect environment in which to relax after a day of shopping, or to mull over a possible extravagant purchase with a customary flute of fizz.

Bar / Restaurant

The French know how to live. They speak the language of love, they have passion, style and grace. Nobody looks cooler than a French person wearing skinny jeans, a Breton top and leather jacket. When it comes to French food, well, c'est magnifique! That's why we're grateful Champagne + Fromage bar and restaurant is in London. The Brixton branch has made some bubbling waves. Despite some grumblings of South London gentrification going too far, the independent Champagne + Fromage have been welcomed with open arms by the Brixton Village community. Champagne is served by the glass (or by the bottle). Artisanal cheeses and meat from France are also on the menu. Take away is available.

Image of Fifth Floor Bar


Playing up to its champagne chic credentials, the Fifth Floor bar is decked out like an art nouveau salon, the bar is full of lime green and acid pink velour upholstered chaise lounges, sofas and armchairs. Admittedly, the vibe can be a little 'aren't we rich' but it's a great Saturday afternoon drinks hangout. A cupcake from Ella's Bakehouse and glass of champers costs £15 on mid-week afternoons.

Image of Bubbledogs


Bubbledogs is a Champagne bar that does not serve caviar. Instead, sink your teeth into gourmet hot dogs and quench your thirst with some of the world's greatest grower Champagnes.

No prizes for knowing what goes best with Champagne - it rhymes with caviar; and is caviar - and this central London shop-cum-restaurant is the best place to go for both. The combination of bubbles and salty caviar is confirmation enough that, yeh, life is all good. The house Champagne here is only £45 a bottle and there are plenty of light bites and luxury gifts to purchase as well so this would suit a shopping expedition or a special treat for that special someone.
