The Savoy is to luxury hotels in London what Big Ben is to landmarks. Countless movie scenes have been filmed in this legendary building located on The Strand, London’s historic artery. Oscar Wilde and George Bernard Shaw enjoyed setting their upper-class protagonists against the backdrop of the Savoy Grill. This hotel icon was closed for almost three years; it was reopened in 2010 after undergoing a complete restoration originally budgeted at 100 million pounds, but which ended up costing 220 million. The results exceed glamor. Offering champagne and cabaret performances, the Beaufort Bar is a new addition.
