The Promenade


Set in the heart of Mayfair on Park Lane, The Dorchester has been a symbol of luxury and charm for more than half a century. The Promenade is the sumptuous setting for the hotel's legendary afternoon teas, offering sandwiches, scones and pastries alongside a selection of 25 different types of tea. The truly decadent can also opt for champagne while reclining on the high-backed divans, or hide away in one of the intimate alcoves for an informal lunch or a light supper.<br/><br/>Please note, all guests are respectfully asked to observe The Dorchester's 'smart casual' dress code, by refraining from wearing baseball or beanie caps, ripped jeans, sportswear (including flip-flops) and shorts while visiting the restaurants and bars.

I really like The Promenade at the Dorchester. My first experience here was at afternoon tea about four years ago when some friends were visiting from the states. I remember being supplied with some delicious tea, some never-ending sandwiches and some sweets at the end. It was spendy, but definitely worth it.

Before the tea, we ended up at the bar and had some drinks. I remember having an...more

My friend Steve who lives here says this is one of the top 10 places in London to have tea. Ok, so we checked it out. Since we had lunch at Ducasse right next door, it made it an easy choice. If you can't get one of the coveted tables along the row go to the bar and say hi to Cesar the Portuguese bartender. He'll take good care of you and give you great stories. Also he'll give you his tips on...more

The Dorchester has a timeless elegance that is beyond posh. My boyfriend and I had one of our most romantic evenings in London drinking at the Dorchester's Promenade Bar.

The Piano player is phenomenal, one of the best we have ever experienced. This is the kind of bar you expect to get one drink, but end up settling in for the rest of the evening.

Our bartender Caesar crafted us signature...more

This was a birthday treat for myself, and from the moment we arrived to the moment we left we were spoilt. It was the little touches that made the service the best we have had - such as our waiter always being there to pour our tea, asking us if we want more of anything (we ate a lot of sandwiches!) and just being friendly.

As I'm not a tea drinker, I was offered hot chocolate instead and it...more

Over the Christmas break, we went into The Dorchester Promenade bar for some festive drinks.

Bar staff were really nice/attentive. The place was filled mainly with people there for afternoon tea so we went and sat at the bar area. (Decided not to go to the actual Dorchester bar as they had carol singers in the Promenade area by the piano which happens to be just by the Promenade's bar).
