The Landmark London Champagne Bar Launches an English Rose Garden With Award Winning Florist Mary Jane Vaughan

An impactful and timelessly British collaboration with bespoke list of rose champagne, rose wines and cocktails

The Landmark London, the five-star Grand Dame hotel, is proud to announce the launch of the Rose Garden at the Champagne Bar, a beautifully curated partnership with award-winning local florist Mary Jane Vaughan. For an evocative summer of fresh blooms and sophisticated serves, the elegant space will transform into a floral haven with an accompanying list of Rosé Champagne, Rosé wines and cocktails.

Evoking the look and feel of a classical rose garden, and with a focus on fresh flowers from English farms, the impressive display is inspired by the long-standing British heritage of the hotel, with the conservatory-like feel of the central mezzanine newly adorned with lavish rose plants that are set to grow and evolve into a range of pink and white buds that celebrate the effervescence and colours of Rosé Champagne.

With a range of English buds, Paul’s Himalayan Musk and Perfect Pink open roses reflecting the natural progression of a garden, the intertwined plants are a welcome flush of colour, and make for an impactful contrast between the fragility of the living roses, and the permanence of the steel framed gazebo of the bar itself. All the roses have been sourced locally through Mary Jane Vaughan’s close ties with growers and wholesalers, to be refreshed throughout the summer long tenure for an ever-fresh abundance of flowers. When the plants reach the end of their lifecycle, the team will donate the plants to homeless-focused charity St Mungos’ ‘Putting Down Roots’ horticultural therapy and training program.

Perfectly complimenting the new surroundings, the Champagne Bar will also offer a newly created drinks menu from Director of F&B Cedric Lescure, and his skilful team, with a carefully crafted list of cocktails, Champagnes, and English sparkling. Taking inspiration from the stunning roses perkily placed throughout the bar, the new tipples centre namely around Rosés, such as Tattinger’s Prestige Rosé Brut, English sparkling Nyetimber Rosé and Chateau D’esclans from the Provence region. For the sober curious, non-alcoholic options will be provided from Wild Idol, a vibrant and naturally alcohol-free sparkling alternative to wine, hand-crafted from a superior blend of grapes by expert winemakers. The full list of drinks will include:

Champagne at Dawn: Cold brew wild berries, rose liquor, vanilla vodka, infused rhubarb, orange bitter, champagne

La Dame: Montelobos Mezcal, Lanique rose liqueur, lychee liqueur, elderflower syrup, raspberries

Rose Garden: The Botanist gin, maraschino liqueur, rose syrup and raspberry foam

Petals: Lanique rose liqueur, elderflower, Aperol, Champagne Lallier rose

La vie en rose 15 (non-alcoholic): Passion Fruit, orange, and pineapple, Wild Idol alcohol-free sparkling rose

Rose Royal (non-alcoholic): Rose and elderflower cordial, grapefruit soda, Wild Idol Rose

The Champagne Bar was refurbished last year and is the jewel in the crown for many who visit The Landmark London, serving up a wide range of luxury Champagnes. Rich fabrics and furnishings decorate the terrace, complemented by a soft carpet running throughout the hotel. Guests can take a seat at the golden raised bar under the rose-covered glasshouse or across the sophisticated terrace which features plush sofas and cosy armchairs. Come evening, a range of dishes are served, accompanied by twinkling piano music from the Winter Garden Restaurant below. In a romantic setting, diners can relax under the starry sky, visible through the glass atrium ceiling.

Mary Jane Vaughan, says: “I am thrilled to be partnering with the historic British hotel, The Landmark London for the summer, particularly as they celebrate their 125th year. This is the natural season for roses, and we have collaborated on this special project to create a unique floral oasis in the centre of busy London. I was particularly inspired by the iconic building’s rail history and proximity to Marylebone train station with its bold structure, much like the columns of the pergola at the Champagne Bar. In addition, The Landmark London stands for a very proud time in English history, and roses are so quintessentially English!”

The Landmark London is centrally located, directly opposite Marylebone train station with excellent inner-city and national transport links. Since its inception over 125 years ago, the hotel remains an icon of quintessential and elegant London charm, offering guests an oasis of luxury and serenity in the heart of the capital.
