My boyfriend and I stayed for the event at The Savoy hotel, before heading over to St Pancras station to get our train back to the midlands. We decided as it was a special occasion we'd pop into the exquisite Searcys Champagne Bar.
I have been back and forth to London for as long as I can remember, I started heading over to London as a little girl with my Mum when we'd stay over and see a show. Then as I got older I came for shopping days, then press events and now I was in London following on from an awards ceremony. Everytime I'd come to London I'd always be in some sort of a rush, my ticket would fly through the barrier and I'd zoom off down the escalators to wherever I running for. This time I had a chance to enjoy the beautiful station that is St Pancras, there are numerous shops, places to eat and of course the Searcy Champagne Bar - a place I'd admired but never dared to go to. I'm not sure why but I always thought I wouldn't fit in having a drink there, and I guess this is why I'd never been before now.

After getting nice and toasty sitting in my pretty Darling dress, next on my list was to order some champagne. After talking to the lady who served us and debating, we decided to go with Duval Leroy NV Brut, which was £9.00 a glass and £53.00 for a bottle. I had already had some wine before the British Fashion Awards and as it was a school night I didn't want to over do it - instead I simply sat and indulged in the moment with my glass.
Whilst sat enjoying my glass of bubbles, I noticed on the menu it gave you a variety of options. For example if I hadn't already had a few drinks I would of loved to do the Tasting Trio for £16.00; 3 tasting size champagne flutes of Besserat de Bellefon Cuvée des Moines Brut NV, Bollinger Rosé NV and Gosset Grand Blanc de Blancs NV. If you didn't want just a glass of champagne you could have champagne cocktails, fruity bubbles and even non alcoholic cocktails. Whilst experiencing some fabulous bubbles you could also order some delicious nibbles to go with your visit, and even sign up to the Searcy's Bubble Club!
Whilst sat there with the one I love and having had such a fantastic evening, I had been completely won over by my Searcys experience - hence why I've decided to even blog about it all.
I'd noticed they have a New Years Eve party planned which looks to be absolutely amazing... Moulin Rouge fancy dress and champagne?! I'll have two tickets please!
If like me you weren't sure about popping into the Searcy's Champagne bar, I couldn't reccommend it more, great staff, fabulous drinks and an experience I'd happily revisit. Next time you're in London... why not stop by?!
