London’s Berkeley Hotel has introduced a wonderful new service delivering some of their finest cocktail creations to homes in the local area via their very own Blue Bar Bikes.
The 5-star Berkeley is a sister hotel to Claridge’s and The Connaught and is renowned for its style and luxury. Aside from its excellent location in the city, it is also home to the legendary Blue Bar which has entertained the rich and famous for decades.
Given the restrictions which have been in place, many of the hotel’s local-living residents are probably missing the Blue Bars amazing ambience and delicious cocktails. Very soon, not only will this be addressed, it will be done so in extraordinary style.
From June 22nd, The Berkeley will be taking to the streets with their brand new Blue Bar Bike service and what makes this so original, is it to be done via their Blue Bar Bikes and will be on the customers doorstep.
When we mention the word bikes, we don’t mean those noisy, polluting nuisances, we’re talking about some good-old-fashioned traditional bicycles. As you would expect from The Berkeley, there will be no half measure with this service (excuse the pun).
The Blue Bar Bike cocktail service will be available seven days a week; the only caveat is you’ll need to live in the SW1X area. This makes complete sense, can you imagine someone decked out in a pristine outfit peddling to the outskirts of Croydon or Reading?
When a resident of SW1X fancies a tipple, they can place an order via the telephone, and the Blue Bar Bike Team complete with the requisite ingredients and a full mixing kit will cycle over and mix the drinks there and then (we told you there would be no half measures!)
Up to six servings of two types of a cocktail can be ordered, which are then poured into the customers own glasses. Or, if they prefer Blue Bars glasses can be added to the order.
Whether it’s a Margherita or a Martini, the team will safely ensure that local residents don’t miss any of the bars magical cocktail making skills.
If an instant cocktail doesn’t take your fancy, you can also order bottled cocktails which come in a Blue Bar-clad glass, 200ml or 500ml. The bottled cocktails include classics such as Pimm’s Cup, Negroni, Pear Tommy’s and Old Fashioned.
2020 marks the 20th anniversary of the Blue Bar and in other times, something a little most spectacular would’ve marked the occasion. However, this new service will still allow local residents the opportunity to raise a glass and toast this exceptional bar from the comfort of their own home.
