A signature cocktail has been created by Michelin star chef Raymond Blanc to mark the opening of a new Eurostar cocktail bar at London St Pancras station.

The Lavender Dusk is mixed using Eurostar’s own gin, Toujours 21.

Located upstairs at Eurostar’s London lounge, the circular bar is open to business class passengers with complimentary cocktails designed by the London Cocktail Club.

Eurostar is introducing a winter G&T menu, featuring gins from Amsterdam, Brussels, Paris and London, paired with local tonic.

The introduction of the new bar marks six years since Eurostar and Raymond Blanc joined forces to transform the on board dining experience for Business Premier passengers.

The opening comes as Eurostar continues to invest in its stations and service, including an express hair salon in the departure lounge, eGates in London St Pancras to speed-up the security process, and World Duty Free.

Catering product and service manager, Yann Bayeul, said: “Following the success of the Paris cocktail bar, we’re excited to unveil the London edition.

“Our Business Premier passengers are often looking for somewhere to unwind after a work, and our leisure travellers are typically up for a tipple.

“With a winter menu designed by the London Cocktail Club featuring spirits from our key destinations, we hope travellers will enjoy the new experience.”

Blanc, Eurostar’s Business Premier culinary director, added: “The new London cocktail bar is a fantastic addition to the lounge.

“With its elegant design and impressive drinks menu created by the London Cocktail Club, we’re looking forward to indulging our passengers with a new and exciting space to relax before travelling.”
