Sitting on the upper deck of L’Azur, a French Riviera themed summer hideout at the Four Seasons Hotel London at Park Lane, one could be mistaken for being on a yacht somewhere out sailing on the azure seas on a fine summers day.
As someone who grew up by the sea and whose house is filled with nautical ornaments, I absolutely adore this brand new collaboration between Four Seasons Hotel London at Park Lane, Belvedere Vodka and Dom Pérignon Champagne and the nautical theme, with shades of blue and white, is my favourite yet. The perfect alfresco outdoor summer drinking spot!
I was there enjoying the gorgeous weather in the fabulous company of my blogger friends Angie and Emma, and we were sat on the upper deck where there are some lovely tables with high stools. The lower deck has more comfortable seating with rattan lounge chairs and is also a lovely spot to spend the afternoon relaxing whilst catching up with friends or family.
We had kicked off the afternoon with a chilled glass of Dom Pérignon each (which the lovely team at Four Seasons London at Park Lane ensured was topped up). We also tried their version of the Aperol Spritz which has champagne in lieu of prosecco, as well as a Belvedere Espress, made from Belvedere Vodka, coffee liqueur and cold-press coffee.
The food was also incredible and Executive Chef Romuald Feger’s has really created an outstanding menu of ‘Les Petites Bouchées’ inspired from the South of France. I adored the courgette flowers, mini veal burgers whilst Angie and Emma enjoyed the pan bagnat tuna sandwiches. These sandwiches are a speciality of the South of France, where it is common to use leftovers from a Salade Niçoise and turn it into a sandwich.
Dessert was moreish brioche balls filled with indulgent vanilla cream and the perfect sweet note to end a wonderful afternoon in the sunshine at L’Azur. I already know that I will be back several times for a glass of bubbly and more of those tasty dishes with friends and family.
I highly recommend heading to L’Azur, which is open daily between 2pm and 11pm, for a slice of the French Riviera in the heart of Mayfair. There is a no-booking policy so I would advise on getting there early to get a stunning spot to relax in.
