Private dining experience launched for Platinum Jubilee

Ultimate Experience, seasonal venues and events specialist and arm of CH&CO, has announced the launch of the Glass Rooms – a collection of 12 glass dining pods set along the iconic riverbank of the Thames.

Created in conjunction with 'Superbloom' at the Tower of London, the unique experience will run from June to September for one summer only, landing as the nation celebrates Her Majesty the Queen's Platinum Jubilee. 

With panoramic views of the Thames, Tower Bridge, The Shard and the Tower of London itself, the Glass Rooms will seat a maximum of eight. Guests can enjoy a menu inspired by British growers and farmers in the privacy of their very own dining space. Menus are priced at £60 for two courses and £75 for three courses.

Dishes include Evesham asparagus, girolles, summer truffle and sorrel, followed by Dover sole, warm potted shrimps, champagne butter sauce and new season potatoes, served with daily changing vegetables. Barbary duck breast with ancient grains, apricot and glazed heritage carrots is also featured, as is 35-day aged native beef rib, smoked potato, grelot onions and crushed green herbs. Seasonal cheeses are available to follow, the selection curated by Paxton & Whitfields, London’s oldest cheese shop.

Stand-out desserts include gianduja chocolate mousse, gooseberry caviar and banana ice cream, along with the vanilla-soaked Rum Baba, chantilly and summer berries.

The drinks menu will include a selection of classic cocktails and mocktails, including a ‘Superbloom’ signature cocktail. The Glass Room is partnered by Laurent-Perrier, the largest family-owned Champagne house and holders of a Royal Warrant from HRH the Prince of Wales, in recognition of its commitment to environmental sustainability.

"This is sure to be one of the season’s most sought-after dining experiences," says Carly Mitchell, MD of Ultimate Experience. "London deserves the ultimate summer of celebration and we’re honoured to be part of it."
