Afternoon tea at the Edwardian
The Heathrow Radisson blu Edwardian hotel has one bar, the Bijou Bar, which is a modern, stylish and beautiful space to unwind in and enjoy a few drinks. It has silvery walls, a mirrored ceiling and a gorgeous central chandelier - so it's possibly the shiniest bar youll ever visit - and yet subtle lighting and cosy corners ensure it's a comfortable and calm space. Theyve aimed to take away the feeling of a staid hotel bar and instead have given this a cosmopolitan feel like any classy London venue - and theyve certainly achieved that.
The bar is a good mix of low tables, comfy chairs and soft, wall-lined benches; ideal for couples or groups to find their perfect spot. If youre drinking alone, there are comfy high-backed stools at the bar, and a wide screen TV in one corner.
- Weekdays: 5pm to 1am
- Weekends: 8am to 1am
The bar itself offers a good range of beers on tap and bottled, a great choice of wines and champagnes, and many spirits.
Theres also a bar menu where you can choose from a selection of British cheeses, sandwiches, salads or a plate of nachos or potato wedges, which are perfect to share. Those with a sweet tooth can enjoy a yummy dessert, a liqueur coffee, a cocktail or even afternoon tea.
Trunk restaurant also has a stunning bar in the centre of the restaurant, so if you don't fancy going anywhere after dinner, simply grab a high-backed stool at the bar and enjoy one of the delicious cocktails, or select something from their extensive wine list.
