Around the World in 80 Pairs of Shoes

Momentus Champagne Bar

If there are three words that this kiwi girl loves it’s “free flowing Champagne”;  thanks to the Lovely Emma, I was invited to the Momentus Champagne Bar Opening at The Cumberland Hotel.


The Cumberland Hotel is a stylish 4 star hotel located on Great Cumberland Place (located off Oxford Street and Marble Arch), just a short four minute walk (yes I timed it!) from Selfridges which houses one of London’s best shoe departments!

The newly opened Momentus Champagne Bar is extremely chic, offering a fantastic champagne menu from the quirky named Lava Liscious Champagne Cocktail (Russian Standard, Chambord, muddled fresh strawberries, raspberries, vanilla syrup floated with house champagne) right down to a Shirley Temple.  I know where I will be taking my little sister the next time she is in London – bring on the sequels and Shirley Temples!


Stepping off the hustle and bustle that is Oxford Street, you will be utterly impressed with the relaxed atmosphere; with high ceilings and clean lines the bar is very sleek and has plenty of space to store all your shopping bags.


I love cheeky staff as they add character to an establishment – check out these lovelies!

Now you know I’m an Afternoon Tea lover and guess what, they serve Afternoon Tea in the Bar; what more could a girl want – Shopping, Afternoon Tea and Champagne Cocktails – 3 of my favourite things.  I need to make a booking to try out their gluten free Afternoon Tea me thinks!


I think it’s safe to say someone had a little bit too much Moet at the opening party!
