“Declared by Churchill as deserved in victory and needed in defeat, I tend to believe there is a time and place for Champagne whether deserved or needed…”

For a night of old-fashioned glamour, head to the opulent Beaufort Bar at The Savoy for an extensive selection of rare vintages accompanied by nightly cabaret performances. GILT Cocktail Lounge within Jumeirah Carlton Tower offers an equally luxurious experience, boasting a Bellini collection on their cocktail list. And if you're not lucky enough to be a member, it's definitely worth befriending one for a visit to the stylish Champagne Bar at Beaufort House.

Conveniently located in the heart of the West End, Kettner's is ideal for squeezing in a pre-theatre glass of bubbles, as is J Sheekey Oyster Bar for a perfect pairing of Champagne and oysters.

Add some sparkle to a catch-up with girlfriends at Mews of Mayfair, or if you're looking to kick off a fun night out, head to the vibrant POP Bar at the Hilton on Park Lane for an early-evening glass of fizz.

Fifth Floor at Harvey Nichols is a chic retreat in which to mark the end of a successful shopping expedition, whereas the Westfield Champagne Bar offers a buzzing atmosphere that will inspire and spur on the weariest of shoppers.

Perfect for a date in the summer months, a peek at the impressive Champagne list on the Rooftop at Boundary is sure to earn you bonus points. Alternatively, with 88 varieties available by the bottle, the bar at Texture will impress the most discerning Champagne lover.

And whether en-route to somewhere exotic or simply embarking on your commute, a pitstop at either Paddington Champagne Bar or St Pancras Grand Champagne Bar will make for a wonderful start to any journey.
