LONDON STYLE with Sketchbooksix

Hey you all,

Today is time to make a different Post from all the others, a crossover with another amazing blog Sketchbooksix and how we have made it? first of all we've chosen a City, London, after that she made a Post about London Fashion and I've made a Post about a Historic London Hotel!

So I introduce to you a Magnific Hotel from 1889, The Savoy Hotel!


The Savoy Entrance



Here a short brief of the Hotel History!

"Established in 1889, The Savoy was the brainchild of the Gilbert and Sullivan impresario Richard D'Oyly Carte. Originally managed by Swiss hotelier César Ritz and Maitre Chef Auguste Escoffier, the hotel quickly became known for its glittering parties and glitterati guests. Escoffier created dishes for Sarah Bernhardt, Lily Langtry, Dame Nellie Melba and the Prince of Wales, later Edward VII, while Ritz instituted the impeccable service, attention to detail and creativity that came to be the hallmark of the hotel. For more than a century, Savoy Court was the stopping point for the Rolls-Royces of royalty, prime ministers and Hollywood stars.
The hotel’s two main design aesthetics, Edwardian and Art Deco, have been carefully brought back to life under the direction of world-renowned designer Pierre Yves Rochon. More than 1000 craftsmen and women, artists and artisans have worked tirelessly to create interiors that are in keeping with the hotel’s original and much-loved spirit."

As you can see the Hotel was very known by his Bars and Restaurants, Like the American Bar and the River Restaurant!

The Hotel in December of 2007 had closed his doors for a huge restoration process, that ended this year and now is back to continuing his Legacy! With a new Royal Suite  featuring two bedrooms, a study, sitting room, dining room, master bathroom, dressing room (with a specially ventilated shoe closet) and a master bedroom with a bespoke Savoir bed.

"The legendary River Restaurant sees a contemporary interpretation of Art Deco décor while guests will welcome the reopening of the American Bar, refreshed but intact in spirit. In addition, Savoy Grill will return under the operation of Gordon Ramsay Holdings with Chef Patron, Stuart Gillies and Head Chef, Andy Cook."

New to the hotel will be The Beaufort Bar, a glamorous Art Deco bar built on the hotel’s original cabaret stage that will offer champagne, cocktails and cabaret and Savoy Tea, a bijou teashop selling Savoy tea, accessories and fresh patisserie. Within the Thames Foyer, the re-introduction of a stunning gazebo beneath an ornate glass dome will provide the perfect ambience for afternoon tea.

A perfect place that make guests first priority!

    Wouldn't it have been an adventure to go back in Time and visit there during its heyday?
