Following the huge success of the cocktail bar in its new Paris lounge (see our review here), Eurostar has opened another on the upper level of the London St Pancras lounge.

A press photo is below.

The menu has been designed by the London Cocktail Club and includes Lavender Dusk, a signature Eurostar cocktail created by the Business Premier culinary director Raymond Blanc.

Remember that Eurostar lounge access is a benefit of the American Express Platinum card, irrespective of your class of travel.  You cannot bring a guest although obviously your nominated supplementary Platinum cardholder can come in with you by showing that.
