A family-owned boutique hotel in Central London has marked the end of its refurbishment programme by opening the doors of its new bar.
The Rubens at The Palace hotel, overlooking the Royal Mews of Buckingham Palace, has officially opened the Leopard Bar for business. The bar will serve over 200 whiskies and 30 champagnes.
The new Leopard Bar looks to enhance the guest experience at The Rubens at the Palace and completes the spectacular multi-million-pound refurbishment of the property which has touched every room and public area.
It is the latest addition to the portfolio of Leopard Bars and Lounges, which have become signature features of selected Red Carnation properties around the world, each individually designed but sharing hallmarks, such as a statement bronze leopard sculpture by South African artist and jeweller Donald Greig.
General manager, Malcolm Hendry, said: “The launch of the Leopard Bar is the final reveal in our extensive and loving refurbishment of the Rubens. The other Red Carnation Leopard Bars and Lounges worldwide have become vibrant destinations in their own right and we are excited that this bar will bring a certain glamour and joie de vivre to the hotel and the wider area.”
