Elon Soddu

Head bartender at The Savoy’s Beaufort Bar

In Conversation

A short walk from Somerset House’s skate rink, The Savoy’s Beaufort Bar is the ideal place to go for a post-skate drink. We asked head bartender Elon Soddu for his favourite festive spots.

What’s your all time favorite London restaurant?
Black Roe in Mayfair – I love the poke there. But I only go for special occasions.

Where do you go in London to feel festive?
I love seeing the lights on Carnaby and Oxford street, and I always make sure I check out Winter Wonderland.

What’s your favourite winter drink?
For outdoors, it’s got to be mulled wine. Or Bar Swift for an Irish Coffee!

Where do you go to celebrate?
I don’t have a particular favourite place – I usually explore Soho and Mayfair.

What’s your favorite London bar?
It’s hard to choose a specific one, as there are so many and they all have such different identities. The Connaught Bar and Coupette are definitely favourites though.
