Veuve Clicquot Champagne Bar
87-135 Brompton Road
London SW1X 7XL
Date of Last Visit: Thursday, July 9th, 2009
The Victims: Jen, Feathers
The Damage: About £15 each. But the snacks were free!
The Background: We dropped into Harrods for the sales the other night. Crazy sales. Really unbelievable. If only I were rich. And thin. I'd be wearing half-off Valentino right now.
We needed a little break at one point, so we dropped into the Veuve Clicquot bar and ordered a glass of champagne each. Pricey at £14.50 for the gold, and £15 something for the rose. But when our complimentary snacks arrived, we felt a lot better. Some nice crispy cracker bread, studded with sesame seeds and poppy seeds. And some delicious tangy yogurty cream to scoop it all up with. A nice surprise. And just enough to tide us over for the rest of our shopping.
The Verdict: A nice little London oasis, but pricey for the champers. Next time, I'll see if I can snag the snacks by just purchasing a £9 glass of wine.
The Question: Where are your favorite complimentary bar snacks?
