The Garden Room at The Lanesborough is London’s most glamorous smoking area: a true ‘hidden gem’ in the heart of Knightsbridge. A discreet outdoor space for just 35 guests, The Garden Room is unique, offering guests a luxurious location to smoke in the surrounds of the world’s finest cigars and cognacs.
The Garden Room is a destination in its own right for those after “the best smoke in town” and it attracts a sophisticated crowd. The lamp-lit, heated outdoor area is the perfect place to savour a range of premium vintage cognacs and whiskeys with cigar in hand. The bar includes a walk-in humidor: the first ever to be installed in a London hotel which houses an impressive 1000 cigars and 30 private lockers for clients’ personal cigar collections.
The Garden Room proudly perpetuates The Library Bar’s Liquid History and hosts a collection of the finest vintage cognacs around, including the world’s oldest cognac which was distilled in 1770. The expansive selection of cigars is equally impressive and virtually unparalleled in London. Guests are spoilt for choice with the range of cigars including the Cohiba ‘Behike’ at £2,000 per stick, the Davidoff Dom Perignon (incredibly rare and difficult to buy) as well as Cohiba Sublimes (possibly the most exceptional cigars around and famously exclusive). The Lanesborough’s director of bars, Giuseppe Ruo, offers an incredible range of pre-embargo cigars and is on hand to advise guests on how to pair their tipple with the “Best Smoke in Town.” It is no wonder he is referred to as the “Puff Daddy of Bars!”
The Garden Room is open from 4pm until late into the evening. Connoting all the comforts of “indoors”, The Garden Room is complete with under floor heating and windproof table lights. Keeping true to its reputation for exceeding every expectation, The Lanesborough also offers guests handmade pashmina scarves and blankets for chillier evenings.
