The Oscar Wilde Bar


Arguably the most famous room in the Café Royal establishment, the Oscar Wilde Bar is drenched in history. Named after Ireland's favourite son Oscar Wilde, the room was originally established in 1865, then known as the legendary Grill Room and has since been restored to its former glory, mimicking the original Louis XVI inspired decor. 

An important piece of history, it's the room where Oscar Wilde fell in love with Lord Alfred Douglas, David Bowie retired Ziggy Stardust and The Beatles, Mick Jagger and Elizabeth Taylor all partied the night away. A unique afternoon tea place during the day and champagne and cocktail bar in the evening.

Afternoon tea is served in the Oscar Wilde Bar daily from 12pm.

The Oscar Wilde Bar is open from 18.30 Tuesday to Saturday and has a regular programme of live entertainment on select evenings including singers, pianists, DJs and the flagship cabaret show Salon des Artistes, presented by The Black Cat Cabaret. An important spot in the West End which has been adorned with the some of the most important faces since the 19th century, drink here and make history yourself.
