There’s nowhere better to savour a delicious Afternoon Tea than The Montague, overlooking peaceful gardens in the heart of London. We are very proud to have received a special ‘Award of Excellence’ for our Afternoon Tea, and to be commended in the Afternoon Tea Awards 2016 and 2017. The Safari Afternoon Tea is served with our signature Leopard Cocktail – made with Amarula cream liquor and decorated with leopard spots and paw print!
The Leopard Bar at The Montague on the Gardens Hotel is an oasis, tucked snugly away from the city streets offering a perfect blend of chic traditional British elegance and colonial South African inspired furnishings, alongside comfortable, quiet and cosy corners. Enjoy a variety of bar snacks and meals, and an excellent selection of drinks and expertly mixed cocktails whilst listening to the relaxing live entertainment which is provided in the bar every Monday to Saturday evening. Join us for live jazz music every Wednesday and Thursday – the perfect accompaniment to a glass of your favourite tipple or our signature Leopard cocktail.
Celebrate your Summer and Winter parties with a difference at The Montague: Here at The Montague, we are lucky to have a wonderful outside area overlooking peaceful gardens. If you are looking for a unique way to celebrate the festive season in London then look no further than Montague Ski Lodge – London’s original ski lodge and winter party venue.
The Wood Deck will be transformed into a magical ski lodge; with pine trees, falling snow, reindeer, snowmen, ski racks, piste maps and strings of fairy lights and lanterns. The centrepiece is a bar serving a selection of beverages from a choice of 12 including Schnapps and flavoured vodkas.
To help combat the cold and lightly drifting snowflakes, guests can enjoy our delicious candied pecans, mulled wine, hot spiced cider, mugs of steaming hot chocolate cocktails and big woolly rugs, which will all help to keep you lovely and snug during the long winter nights. Or head to the Log Cabin – an atmospheric space to enjoy a drink in front of a decorative fire, Christmas tree and cosy armchairs and sofas complete with blankets.
