Housed in a grade II listed building on the site of the former Bridewell Palace, Voltaire is a swanky Square-Mile hotspot opposite Blackfriars station. Decorated with a cool and contemporary interior, and complete with spacious, private alcoves; Voltaire is a cocktail bar and cigar terrace that is a popular drinking spot amongst the City crowds. Originally built to house a Bank's treasures, the vaults offer guests a private space, complete with comfy sofas, cool wall art and your very own iPod dock so you can be DJ for the night.

The cocktail bar offers a variety of Afternoon Tea options by day with inclusions such as cocktails and champagne, and as the evening approaches, enjoy expertly crafted cocktails and a formidable range of sparkling thirst-quenchers; from half bottles and nine litres, to vintage years alongside a range of mouth-watering gourmet bar bites. If this isn't enough for you then head outside and make use of the cigar terrace, where Cuban cigars are on offer. Monthly cocktail masterclasses and quarterly cigar masterclasses book up fast.

Voltaire is a luxurious spot, perfect for just about any occasion. With a cool following and a VIP feel it is sure to give any event something a little extra.
