Paul Hamlyn Hall Champagne Bar

A unique collaboration with Ruinart Champagne, the Paul Hamlyn Hall Champagne Bar is what many people instantly think of when they hear about the Royal Opera House.  Enjoying a glass of chilled, crisp champagne before curtain up or during the interval is, for many people, a part of the ritual and enjoyment of a night at the opera or ballet.  So, too, is a plate of our smoked salmon, prepared exclusively to our unique recipe by Severn and Wye.

If you haven’t booked a table and you would still like to have a snack before the performance or in the interval why not order on the night from our daily bar menu. Click here to see our sample menu. Please note we can’t guarantee a table for bar orders.


Alternatively, if you want something more substantial than a sandwich but don’t want to linger over dinner, our new supper trays are the answer. Find out more about Supper Trays.

Or, for those wanting a more elegant daytime occasion in which to enjoy the magnificent surroundings of the Royal Opera House, we are now taking bookings for Tea at the Royal Opera House, an afternoon treat in the beautiful surroundings of the Paul Hamlyn Hall. Book your tickets now.
