• The London popup Champagne bar where a glass is just £2.33

    aldi pop up champagne bar london

    Popping up briefly in St Christopher's Place this week is a Champagne bar with a difference. The signage out front doesn't give the game away but Veuve is actually a popup from Aldi, selling the supermarket's own-brand - and award winning - Veuve Monsigny Champagne.

    Billed as "the UK’s cheapest Champagne bar in one of the UK’s most expensive postcodes", Veuve will be open until Sunday to give weary Christmas shoppers

  • Harrods unveil their summer Perrier-Jouet Champagne Terrace


    There's no surer sign that summer's on its way than when terraces, all across town, begin to be unveiled in their new plumage.

    Top of your to-try list has to be the new Perrier-Jouet terrace at Harrods which launched to a celeb crowd last week. The fourth floor terrace (we honestly didn't even know it was there) is apparently a sunny spot facing due south west - perfect to sit and sip Champagne in. And when the weather properly bucks up there's an

  • Burger and Lobster's Taittinger brunch features a Champagne Train running along the bar


    Now we know there are plenty of fun police out there who hate the idea of gimmicks. But we are not among them and, frankly, this latest conceit at Burger & Lobster sounds like an absolute hoot.

    The Soho branch of the restaurant group has teamed up with Taittinger to launch the Champagne Train - where flutes of champagne are served by a train rolling down a 9m model railway track on the bar itself.

    It's their version of the bottomless brunch. So

    Bubbledogs gets a revamp with a bigger Champagne focus and new hotdogs

    Changes are on the way for Bubbledogs, the hot dog and Champagne bar in Fitzrovia by Sandia Chang (which also acts as a way into the 2-Michelin-starred Kitchen Table at the back). They're closing for a revamp and opening again with much more of a focus as a Champagne bar.

    And this change also means a much bigger focus on Grower Champagnes (they're the smaller producers in the Champagne region).

    Just in time for this year's celebrations of the 150 year anniversary of St Pancras Station, the station's St Pancras Brasserie and Champagne Bar by Searcys is getting a fresh new look. Just over a decade after it opened, the new design means it'll now have a Kitchen Bar which will be just the ticket for meetings during the day or evening chef demos using the space's open kitchen.

    One key element of the redesign has been the reworking of the old private dining

  • Selfridges launch a Moët & Chandon champagne photobooth for Christmas


    Can't tell you how much we love the idea of this new festive addition to Selfridges. It's a Moët & Chandon champagne photobooth. You jump in the booth, snap a pic and then use that to create personalised labels for MINI MOET champagne bottles.

    And if you want to take your time over the perfect shot (or get one done for someone else as a pressie), you can just upload a pic from your phone when you're in store and get the labels done that way. The personalised Mini Moët
