RM Champagne Salon
May 11, 2018
Champagne salon: those are two words to conjure with – and this place doesn’t disappoint. The RM Champagne Salon is a gloriously handsome space, all marble fireplaces and chandeliers with an upscale elegant atmosphere to match. The intimate room, which you reach via a tucked-away cobblestone alley off Randolph Street in the West Loop has a sophisticated vibe, with vintage crystal perfume bottles lining the bar and antique hand mirrors. Grace Kelly is the point of inspiration here and it shows. The wine and champagne list is artisanal, with lots of estate grown options, yet also approachable and unpretentious too. There’s also a small list of cocktails to choose from, including an aromatic eucalyptus and black pepper gin-based number called the Solstice. To pair with your fizz there’s a cheese programme and a selection of suitably dainty nibbles, sandwiches, pastries, petit fours and canapes, made by an in-house pastry chef. There are oysters, seafood platters, and larger plates too.
