The American Bar at The SavoyDuring The Savoy's £220million refit the American Bar was barely touched, ensuring it stayed true to its traditional, sleek design that is synonymous with the iconic drinking destination. The white décor, art deco mirrors and fittings, polished piano - used for live American Jazz seven nights a week - and Terry O'Neill monochrome portraits come together to form one of the capital's most stylish bars. Erik Lorincz currently leads the award-winning team of bar staff, who still refer to the legendary Savoy Cocktail Book that is considered 'the bartender's bible'. Written by Harry Craddock, the head bartender in the 1930s, the book contains cocktails such as the famous White Lady, which is made with Bombay Sapphire gin, dry orange liqueur, fresh lemon juice and a dash of egg white. As well as these traditional choices, the bar aims to serve classic drinks that appeal to the modern palate.
