Live Music and Dinner at The Savoy
As day turns to night, the Thames Foyer at The Savoy transforms into a sultry setting reminiscent of the 1920s jazz age. Highly acclaimed performers such as Nima Leon, Blue Rose and Mandy Meadows grace the stage of the striking centerpiece gazebo, as part of the Live at The Savoy entertainment programme.
Taking place in the heart of The Savoy every night of the week, each set runs from 7.00pm to 11.30pm for guests enjoying a relaxed evening of dinner and drinks.

For the first time in Savoy history, we introduce a Musician-in-Residence, performing a series of gigs in the Thames Foyer and joining our team of Savoy Residents. Our first Musician-in-Residence will be jazz vocalist and performer Judi Jackson. Having recently launched her debut album ‘Live in London’, the Virginia-born jazz vocalist and performer will embark on her new residency at The Savoy with an exciting new repertoire. Frequently on the road, Judi has sold out headline shows world-wide and has collaborated with the likes of Warner Music’s George Moore and Michael League, member of Grammy award-winning band Snarky Puppy, for the creation of her 2017 EP ‘Blame it on my Youth.’
Judi Jackson will perform at The Savoy on Wednesday 24 April, Friday 24 May, Thursday 20 June and Thursday 25 July.
Also performing as part of the Live at The Savoy series will be Montreux Jazz Talent Awards winner Jalen N’Gonda. Jalen will perform at The Savoy on Thursday 9 May, Thursday 16 May and Friday 7 June, with further dates to be announced.
DINNER AND DRINKS MENU
Available from 7.00pm, the new dinner menu at the Thames Foyer is inspired by the great Chef Auguste Escoffier, one of the codifiers of French haute cusine, who in 1890 accepted an invitation from Richard D’Oyly Carte to join him at The Savoy in London to set up and run the kitchens. Escoffier accepted this offer… and the rest is culinary history. Some of the dishes in the new menu include renowned recipes, which were invented by Escoffier at The Savoy, such as the Pêche Melba, which was created in 1893 in honour of Australian singer Nellie Melba.
Other highlights of the menu include Oeufs et Ossietre Caviar in the Prologue (starters), Cuisse de Canard Confit in the Story (mains) or Baba au Rum in the Epilogue (desserts).
Ideal alongside the live musical performances taking place every evening, the menu includes dishes that are great for sharing, creating a unique and more relaxed dining experience in the Thames Foyer restaurant.
