Planning a trip to London?

An important London landmark, the St Pancras International train station, has a unique London feature: the upper level, where Eurostar departs, sits Europe's longest champagne bar. It stretches over 315 feet and you can choose from a buffet of bubbly varieties.

"The bar has stools for 110 people and there are almost 70 Champagnes on the menu, with 10 available by the glass," Luxist describes. "You can enjoy a Champagne breakfast and spend anywhere from £39.95 to £2,700 on a bottle of bubbly. On their opening day they sold the equivalent of 4,500 glasses of champagne."

Ever since champagne made its debut in France during the late 1600s, it has gained a reputation as "the celebration wine." It launches ships, commemorates anniversaries and birthdays, toasts weddings, and now is the darling of the London St Pancras International train station. Who cares about London layovers?
