The Dublin Sour cocktail was amazing, and so was the atmosphere, I loved the addition of the speakers.

Named in honour of the French philosopher, Voltaire Cocktail & Champagne Bar is a subterranean hideaway offering a light brunch and afternoon tea by day, then gourmet burgers and homemade liqueur cocktails into the night. Complete with private vaults and an al fresco cigar terrace, it is a sultry spot to escape the bustle of the City.

The gourmet burger menu boasts a seared foie gras burger served on award-winning aged beef, and the German prime beef burger served with sauerkraut, in a laugenbrot bretzel roll. Earlier in teh day, try the light brunch with free-flowing prosecco or the signature Voltaire afternoon tea and cocktails. From the drinks menu, try Voltaire’s Cooler with dark Rum, apricot Brandy, handmade lime and jasmine syrup, lime juice and apple juice, or French Margarita containing Excellia Tequila Blanco, triple sec liqueur, crème de mure, blackberry purée and handmade thyme and lime syrup.

The Grade II-listed building that houses this bar was once used as a prison, and subsequently as a bank. Voltaire has honoured this history in its name (a pun on ‘vault’) & by offering luxurious private vaults with a bespoke service. Each of these 9 vaults is named after the French philosopher Voltaire’s contemporaries, such as ‘The Thinker’, ‘The Statesman’ & ‘The Playwright’.

In the heart of the City, Voltaire in Blackfriars is a 6-minute walk from St Paul’s Cathedral. Blackfriars Tube and Rail stations are across the road.

    Booked for a surprise birthday. It was the Monday the hotel was very quiet. But the ambience was lovely the staff are great particularly the young man who served us. Happy to change parts of the food to accommodate our food likes and dislikes. And then came back and said it already and been taken care of by the kitchen from the booking.Could not of asked for any more. Highly recommended

    The sandwiches were good. So were the scones. The matching cocktails weren't good at all. Should have stuck to tea.

    Service was great, food brilliant, cocktails were brilliant. My only grumble would be that there was no offer on bottled beer whilst the pumps were off.

    Really enjoyed the classic afternoon cream tea. Very well presented, nice variety, in a lovely atmosphere and attended to by good staff. Refills of tea and coffee supplied without having to ask. Couldn't ask for more. The best afternoon tea we have had.
