If you ‘forgot’ to book your holiday to the French Riviera (read: can’t actually afford it and don’t want to miss a week of Love Island) then you’re in luck. The Four Seasons Hotel London at Park Lane has teamed up with Belvedere Vodka and Dom Pérignon to create L’Azur an exclusive yacht themed hide-out for those of us who are staying put this summer.
Dressed up in with buoys, anchors and azure hues, the nautical terrace features an upper and lower deck, making it a prime spot for catching the summer rays, sure you won’t have the crystal blue water lapping at your yacht and you will have the sound of black cabs driving past, but we’re not really in a position to argue here.
L’Azur’s crew will be creating new cocktails throughout the summer including the Belvedere Espress made from Belvedere Vodka, coffee liquor and cold press coffee. Elsewhere on the menu you’ll find L’Azur Spritz, their take on a traditional Aperol Spritz and The Mule, made from Hennessy VS, falernum cordial, apricot brandy, ginger beer and homemade bitters.
To eat, there’s a specially curated Les Petites Bouchées menu with favourites including La Courgette Fleur, Les Salade du Superfood and for pudding the classic La Tarte Tropézienne’, an orange blossom and vanilla cream filled brioche.
And if you really want to go the feel the cool water on your feet then the Serpentine isn’t that far away…
L’Azur is now open at Four Seasons Hotel London at Park Lane, Hamilton Place, Park Lane, W1J 7DR www.fourseasons.com
