KASPAR'S, THE SAVOY, LONDON, UK


Kaspar’s Seafood Bar & Grill at The Savoy is a stunning new Restaurant located in one of the most prestigious Hotels in the World. Kaspar’s follows hot on the heels of the restoration of The Savoy in 2010 and is very much a destination in its own right.
The Savoy is one of the World’s most Iconic Hotel’s and they wanted to enhance the dining experience whilst continuing to appeal to the local crowd.
“With the theatres, museums and the Opera House across the Strand, Kaspar’s will retain the loyal Savoy Guests and celebratory Customers, but will also attract the discerning young Affluents, Ladies who lunch and Captains of Industry.
Through intelligent and considered design, this was a seamless transformation to create an exciting and dynamic restaurant that has subtle points of difference from breakfast through to lunch and dinner.
The Art Deco inspired Restaurant takes reference from the Savoy’s steeped heritage, to give a timeless eating experience. The layout is dynamic and flexible, with new lighting – including a beautiful bespoke chandelier – a stunning marble floor around a new dramatic Seafood Bar and elegantly designed furniture to punctuate the space.
New comfortable banquette seating and table arrangements allow the restaurant to cater for the needs and expectations of Guests. Meanwhile, the ceiling has been fitted with silver leaf to bring a touch of glamour to Kaspar’s and additional features include brass balustrading and art deco mirrors.
“We wanted to give the Restaurant an elegant, sophisticated and relaxed atmosphere. We kept many references to The Savoy and kept some of the existing elements; however it is a new and radically different look to what was there previously.”
“The restaurant is visually enticing, glamorous and sophisticated, welcoming and relaxed in its atmosphere with an aura of informality, combining a blend of strong design with a casual, modern food and service offering.”
The overall design of the Restaurant takes its inspiration from The Savoy’s rich history, whilst it takes its name from a three foot high cat sculpted in 1926 by British Basil Ionides. The Cat is steeped in superstition and has a longstanding history with The Savoy.
