The Cavendish Hotel launches the Rosa Lewis bar and London Cocktail Month:
Jermyn Street London is home to the Cavendish Hotel. It’s an area of London where finding somewhere for a relaxing and not too expensive. I was invited along to the launch of the new Rosa Lewis cocktail bar, which has been opened to fill just that gap, offering shoppers and tourists alike somewhere to sit and drink away from the hubbub on Piccadilly.
Rosa Lewis who has lent her name to the new bar was chef and owner of The Cavendish Hotel in London from 1902 to 1952. Known as the “Queen of Cooks” her culinary skills were highly prized by Edward VII with whom she was rumoured to have had an affair in the 1890s. She was also called “The Duchess of Jermyn Street.” Rosa Lewis was a strong woman and a infamous character amongst society and many tales are told of her flamboyance. One of her employers was Lady Randolph Churchill. One day, Rosa chased Lady Churchill’s then ten-year-old, red-haired son Winston out of her kitchen, shouting “Hop it, copper knob!”
