A Look inside The Stafford

A haven of curated luxury and characterful history dating back to the 17th century, The Stafford London's 5* spaces are brimming with stories to be explored. Below ground are 380-year-old wine cellars that once doubled up as an air raid shelter during World War II and which preserve one of London’s most complete wine collections to this day. The broad history and collections of the wine cellars make The Stafford London a must-visit spot for any avid wine connoisseurs to enjoy a vintage bottle selected by a sommelier, or to immerse themselves in a wine tasting held in the cellars. And, of course, there is also the famed American Bar, one of only two American Bars left in London to retain this original name. Initially catering to the vast inflow of travellers from the US in the 1940s, The American Bar now serves cocktail classics to its patrons, with every available wall, surface and square inch of ceiling displaying an intriguing collection of artefacts, knick-knacks and signed celebrity photographs, all of which have been lovingly donated over the years.

From pink-tailed vanilla mice and decadent coffee choux buns to uniformly laid finger sandwiches and decorative cakes topped with shards of honeycomb, the Afternoon Tea spread at The Stafford London is as delicately whimsical as it is varied. Accompanied by either a teacup or a fizzing flute, the broad tea selection including St James specialty blends is as wide-ranging as the champagne list. The choice is yours.
