The Hyde has officially opened its doors at luxury boutique hotel The Royal Park and will serve rare and fine whiskeys and cognacs.
Comprising three renovated mid-19th century Grade II listed townhouses, the central London bar promises to offer some of the world’s most exclusive, rare and fine whiskeys and cognacs, as well as a selection of small eats and afternoon teas.
Laurence Wall, director of operations and sales, said he hoped it would become one of the most quintessentially British public houses in London. “It is probably going to be one of the most quintessentially British public houses in London, offering the finest wines and spirits, spectacular small eats and sumptuous teas,” he said.
“Most importantly, its absolute unique selling point lies with the fact that the bar retains a remarkable 19th century character providing guests with an intimate and luxurious setting to socialise, celebrate or simply indulge.”
On the official opening evening, whisky expert Graeme Sutherland unveiled 12 rare and fine whiskies and cognacs valued at more than £100,000, some of which are now available at The Hyde.
