Service & facilities
The great and very private service at L’oscar can hardly be described. The always attentive staff acts rather in the background but is always there when you need it. The check in is already an experience and you can’t wait to see your room.
The walk through the hotel is like a fall through the centuries and the eye always discovers new beautiful details.
Located on the ground floor, L’oscar Restaurant is the bustling heart of the hotel, with its illuminated onyx bar and decor inspired by the world’s oldest café in Venice, with walls and ceilings lined with mirrors, gilded panels, and stunning original art. L’oscar offers all the charm and sophistication of a Parisian café. A food lover’s lair, it is the go-to place for delectable breakfasts, bistro-style lunches, and intimate evening dining, or simply a late-night dessert and a soothing glass of wine.
The Baptist Bar is one of its kind. I fell in love by just stepping in to this most awesome location. This sought-after setting is the ideal place for an early rendezvous, a lively catch-up over cocktails, or an intimate late-night conversation. The lavish surroundings of The Baptist Bar were created by leading decorateur Jacques Garcia. Enjoy our mischievous array of Old and New Testament cocktails, or join those in-the-know and catch our exclusive program of visiting musicians in this chic central London hideaway.
The chapel upstairs provides an exhilarating dining experience, while downstairs the bar is decadently-designed and unapologetically sexy.
The Blue Tree Yard located next to the Baptist Bar, Jacques Garcia created a small and secret garden. The sheltering canopy is a copper tree in full blue blossom, hung with birdcages and beautiful foliage. It is the perfect setting to sip on a cocktail and explore our extensive cigar menu.
The private dining menus offer splendid feasts for any occasion. Whether catering for a luncheon, reception or sit-down dinner, L’oscar offers a menu to match every occasion – or you can create your own.
