Cocktail of the Week: International Champagne Day

18th October 2019 // By Emma Reynolds

There’s nothing quite as exquisite as a crisp glass of bubbly champagne, and (like everything else) there’s now an entire day dedicated to this effervescent spirit. At Elite Traveler, we think that International Champagne Day should be celebrated all weekend, which is why we we’re highlighting one of the most elevated experiences you can have to celebrate the global day.

In Bangkok, Lebua Hotels & Resorts has the world’s tallest al fresco champagne bar, Flute, by Perrier Jouët, that sits more than 800 ft above the city on the 64th floor of the hotel. Specifically for this champagne bar, Perrier Jouët created their first-ever special-edition bottle in collaboration with a hotel and restaurant. Perrier Jouët’s other creations will be available, including the Blanc de Blacs, Cuvee Belle Époque Brut and Rosé and Blason Rosé. It’s the only champagne currently being served at flute. Order by the bottle or the flute – or even in a bellini, kir royal or mimosa – to try some of the brand’s most delicious creations while admiring the glittering city skyline of Bangkok.

Lebua’s Flute champagne bar will serve the perfect pairings: caviar and oysters. Champagne connoisseurs will appreciate how many options are available, which come from the Exclusive House of Caviar. Try tastes of their Caviar Service, Imperial Beluga, Beluga, Royal Oscietra and Oscietra. It comes on a chilled Himalayan sea salt plate in a variety of sizes.

The elevated champagne, caviar and oyster list is complemented with a sleek, modern design, lit dimly as to not overpower the skyline’s shine. There is ample seating area – and even much more to explore in the hotel once you’ve had enough champagne.

The good news is that if you don’t find yourself in Bangkok this weekend, or anytime soon, you can still visit the al fresco bar and order yourself a glass of bubbly to marvel over the incredible views.
