The Royal Albert Hall has opened a new bar in partnership with Berry Bros & Rudd.
The Berry Bros & Rudd No.3 Bar specialises in BB&R’s wines and spirits as well as a list of No. 3 Gin and classic cocktails which will be available to the hall’s annual 1.5 million visitors.
The bar’s food menu, from in-house caterer Rhubarb features sharing boards, freshly made salads, smoked salmon blinis and sandwiches. Rhubarb will manage the bar’s daily operations.
BB&R chairman Simon Berry said: “We were surprised and delighted when we were invited by the management of the Royal Albert Hall to open a bar. We have been supplying the hall with its wine for 18 months or so as well as a few of our spirits, including No. 3 Gin, and the King’s Ginger liqueur had also been selected to go into their bars and restaurants.
"The relationship fits very well and the bar is not only a bar, but one of the iconic arena bars. Whatever your taste in music or entertainment, I am sure that we can satisfy your taste for something to drink.”
Located on the basement level, the Berry Bros & Rudd No.3 Bar offers food and drinks two hours before every performance, in the interval and for select concerts, the bar will also be open post-show.
