Searcys Rolls Out Champagne Bar: One New Change

Searcys has recently rolled out its latest Champagne Bar One New Change, which is located in the St Paul’s shopping district. Overlooking St Paul’s Cathedral Bar One New Change can accommodate up to 100 guests and will host an extensive Champagne list including over 30 varieties by the flute and over 100 cuvées by the bottle.

The champagne list aims to celebrate the seasons and all styles of Champagne are expected to be represented; features include tasting flights, vintage profiles, rare vintages as well as the theatrical decanting of Champagne.

Champagne will also be matched with fine foods, namely tapas style “plates” such as foie gras and green peppercorn terrine or smoked tuna with almonds.

Michelle Cartwright, the Searcys Champagne Bar concept development manager, said: “To be part of such an exciting launch is a privilege and Searcys is proud to present a bar in such a great retail development.”

Searcys operates at a number of iconic locations, including 40/30, St Pancras Champagne Bar, Westfield Champagne Bar, the Portrait Restaurant at the National Portrait Gallery and the Hurlingham Club.

Searcys plans to launch a further five Champagne Bars in 2011 at various transport hubs and retail outlets.

London: Searcys Second Champagne Bar Opens in One New Change

The upmarket restaurant operator Searcys plans to open their new champagne bar “One New Change” in a few weeks!

This is the second launch this year for Searcys Champagne Bar brand, and their spokesperson states they plan on launching five more in 2011, to be found in and around transport hubs and retail outlets.

Due to open on 30 March, the Champagne Bar at One New Change will comfortably seat 100 guests and will sell over 30 varieties by the glass, with over 100 different cuvees by the bottle including traditional method sparkling wines.

Stylish Indulgence

The company, which was bought in an £8m management buyout last year, says its Champagne Bar concept is based around “stylish indulgence”, which it says works well in its existing sites.

Searcys last year expanded the capacity of its Champagne bar in London’s Westfield shopping centre from 36 to 72 covers by taking over the adjacent area, saying that “affordable luxury” was still popular in the UK despite the austere economic times.

Design

The new site, a ceiling-to-floor glass case, was designed by Interbar. Its “plush armchairs”, marble bar and warm copper and brown tones target a “retro1970s chic” atmosphere.

Food

Tapas-style food will also be available to match with champagne, such as Foie Gras and green peppercorn terrine or Smoked Tuna with almonds.
