The Rivoli Bar, an intimate cocktail lounge within the famous Ritz Hotel, re-opened in 2001 after a closure of some twenty years with interiors stylishly updated from their original early Art Deco look into the current more luxurious style of the late 1920s. Likened by Tatler magazine to a "gorgeous little jewel box", the award-winning Rivoli Bar drips with Murano glass chandeliers suspended from gilded ceiling domes, and is encased by wood veneer walls decorated with delicate Lalique glass insets originally made for the Orient Express trains. The cocktail list includes one Sir Charlie - a mix of whisky, absinthe and Champagne - named after Charlie Chaplin, a regular at The Ritz. The Rivoli Bar was, most memorably, the place where American actress Tallulah Bankhead sipped champagne from her slipper during a press conference to celebrate her arrival in London back in 1951 - and so created another chapter in Ritz history.
