With opulent interior by Fabled Studio, the new jewel-box space shines to a high sheen with signature Russian red flourishes and crystal galore. Theatricality comes care of tactile was dressed in leather and velvet upholstery, plus dramatic crystial lighting and marble flooring.

Helmed by Cameron Attfield, one of 2019’s World Vlas Bartenders, the Baccarat Bar serves twenty signature drinks (with four non-alcoholic options) all in Baccarat glassware. The cocktails are created around the theme of refracting light, and the menu is dividend into seven colors (with two cocktails per color). For example, try the Starry Nights out of the ‘Blue’ section, which is crafted with Beluga Gold Line Vodka, sake, black rice milk distillate, lacto-fermented rock melon, sesame, Chablis and caviar and served in Baccarat Harcourt Talleyrand Tumblers.

The cocktail menu will evolve every six months to include the concoctions of guest bartenders. Food, crafted by Harrods’ in-house culinary team, is also available. The Baccarat Bar in Harrods is now open and reservations are now available.
