We apologise for any disappointment and inconvenience caused, however as we’re sure you understand the health and wellbeing of our guests and staff is our highest priority. As you may know we have a number of events planned throughout the year. We will continue to follow advice from the Government and Public Health England on whether they can go ahead, and you will be notified about all the events you are booked onto if anything changes.
Bath Bomb Fizz
Our nod to Valentine's Day goes to the Parlement of Foules (1382 - by English poet Geoffrey Chaucer). This was recorded as the first association of Valentine's Day with romantic love. Chaucer wrote: "For this was on St. Valentine's Day, when every bird cometh there to choose his mate". This poem was written to honour the first anniversary of the engagement of King Richard II of England to Anne of Bohemia. A treaty providing for a marriage was signed on May 2, 1381.
A romance between molecular mixology and love for flavour. The Bath Bomb Fizz is the equivalent of taking a bubble bath with the person you most desire and a bottle of sparkling wine. We have chosen Silent Pool Rose expression for the complexion of the gentle notes.
A nod to the host of world biggest street party, Rio de Janeiro is no stranger to let it loose and welcome the world to its flamboyant Carnaval do Rio .

Influenced by African roots, Samba music was introduced in 1917 and now for 2 days the best Samba Schools battled each other non stop to the delights of King Momo , the Queen and Princess of this spectacular show.

We know it's Easter, but we're going to try and avoid any unnecessary egg puns. Which will be hard when we're giving you a cocktail recipe served with an egg shell resting on egg white froth. But we digress – the Fluffy Tail is one of a few dynamite Easter cocktails created by South Place Hotel's head bartenders Angel de Sousa and Roland Varga, and we're teaching you to make two of them at home.
