It may sound familiar as the Kate Middleton’s chosen hotel for bridal party preparations and now The Goring is somewhere you can visit too – for less than the £8,400 Royal Suite price tag. From the 9th November the popular terrace at the hotel will be transformed into a magical and glamorous alpine bar, in ode to ski resort St Moritz.
For a hotel who has just won a Michelin star and, of course, has royal approval it’s no surprise that this old-school ski bar has been created with immaculate attention-to-detail. Closely-guarded family cocktail recipes from award-winning barmen have been flown in from the resort’s Badrutt’s Palace hotel and will be served alongside Swiss-inspired canapes, tartiflette and potato roesti from Michelin-starred chef Shay Cooper – warming comfort food, elevated.
Sip a Suisesse to an elegant backdrop of Ella Fitzgerald and Frank Sinatra, twinkly lanterns, cosy sheepskins and cashmere rugs. It all sounds pretty ideal so just to top things off, imagine slick waiters clad in vintage ski jumpers, et voila, you’re transported to one of the most luxurious ski resorts in the world, in one of the most luxurious hotels.
The St Moritz Ski Bar runs from Monday 9th November 6-9pm until February at The Goring, Beeston Place, London SW1W 0JW
