Searcys opens new Champagne Bar at Paddington Station

Upmarket caterer Searcys continues its roll-out of its Champagne Bar concept with the launch of a new site in Paddington Station, which opened yesterday.

The 40-cover bar, which Searcys says will hold the largest selection of grand marquee houses - many available by the glass - will also focus on supporting British sparkling wine producers such as Balfour Brut Rosé.

The Paddington Champagne Bar will offer prices that range from £8.50 a glass up to £320 for a bottle of Dom Perignon 1990 while those seeking extra indulgence can splash out £1,200 for a Balthazar of Laurent-Perrier Brut NV for £1,200.

The menu will comprise a selection of small tapas-style dishes that have been designed to match with Champagne.

The plan to roll out a series of Champagne bars was announced by the caterer in July following the successful management buy-out led by chairman Richard Tear and chief executive Doug Tetley after three years as part of the Alternative Hotel Group.

Tetley told Caterer at the time that the roll-out had "real legs" as an alternative strand to the Searcys business model. As well as in London, new sites are likely to open in Manchester, Birmingham and Brighton.
