    The Waldorf Hilton, situated on Aldwych in the heart of London’s theatre district, is re-launching its Homage Bar exclusively for private bookings. Homage, previously the hotel’s cocktail bar, will be an exclusive venue and follows the launch of the hotel’s newly acclaimed flagship bar Good Godfrey’s Bar and Lounge, which opened earlier this year.Homage has played host to the finest parties of the fashion elite and gatherings of corporate aristocracy. Designed by the famous restaurateur, Sir Roy Ackerman, its luxurious surroundings are in keeping with the hotel’s heritage, which dates back to 1908. The venue was originally three bars separated by pillars – Gaslight Bar, Opera Bar and Carriages Bar – catering for theatre goers in the early 1900s. The interior was originally inspired by the grand cafés of Europe and still retains those stunning and unique features today.

    The versatile venue is suitable for a range of events, catering up to 50 people, such as breakfast gatherings, networking events, presentations, product launches, birthday celebrations and festive occasions. Cocktail parties are also on offer, with a private cocktail making lesson hosted by the hotel’s award-winning mixology team.

    In addition to offering a bespoke menu which could include such gastronomic delights as foie gras and duck breast with plum compote canapés and ragout of salmon, saffron cream and crushed new potatoes; the hotel’s events team also provides room dressers and florist quotes upon request.
