Join the Cavalry Charge and support ‘Fashion for the Brave’ at The Dorchester
The Dorchester Hotel on Park Lane is synonymous with luxury and glamour. The venue upholds a reputation for being one of the top hotels in London and on arrival guests are surrounded by an opulent interior, which has a contemporary feel. The main bar, which is tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the foyer, oozes a sense of rich sophistication. The deep colour palette of the décor is complemented by velvet and dramatic red glass spheres that adorn the walls.
The cocktail menu is one of the most famous in Mayfair and has been devised by world-renowned expert alchemist, Giuliano Morandin. In a show of support for the fundraising initiative, Fashion for the Brave, Giuliano recently joined forces with legendary fashionista, Hilary Alexander, and Captain Damien Lipman of The Life Guards (Retired), to create a fabulous new tipple called the “Cavalry Charge”. The delicious cocktail is made of gin, wild strawberry liqueur, ginger beer, fresh lime and blue curacao. Available for £17, The Dorchester is generously giving £2 to the Household Cavalry Operational Casualties Fund (HCOCF) for each one sold.
This imaginative drink is exclusive to The Bar at The Dorchester and the venue provides a perfect location to begin an evening out with the girls. Once you have sampled the Cavalry Charge, a Champagne Shimmer (£28) should definitely be considered. Not only does this sumptuous cocktail sparkle with gold dust, but it is presented in a tall, elegant glass and also arrives accompanied by a lipgloss, which has a light and a mirror. A different shade is offered each month, from rose pink to ravishing red.
For those who like to enjoy a gentle bite to eat alongside an early evening drink, an appealing snack menu is also offered at The Bar. If you are planning an elegant evening with friends, you can’t go far wrong by showing your support for Fashion for the Brave, whilst enjoying the chic atmosphere at The Dorchester.
