I G AN OM ES WE ARE DELIGHTED TO PRESENT THE RITZ RESIDENT PIANIST The son of a celebrated concert violinist, Ian Gomes developed a love for the piano as a child and began his career as a classical pianist before graduating to popular music. Extending his talent across the musical spectrum, Ian formed a successful rock band called ‘The Kings’ and worked with such musical luminaries as Frank Sinatra before taking up his position as resident pianist, firstly at The Savoy and since 1995, at The Ritz. Ian Gomes is the master of the international language of the piano. He is renowned for playing frequently requested songs and melodies from every country across the globe. Today he can be heard playing during Afternoon Tea in The Palm Court, and during dinner in The Ritz Restaurant. He is noted for his popular renditions of ‘Puttin' on The Ritz’ and ‘A Nightingale Sang in Berkeley Square’ which have become traditional favourites. 150 PICCADILLY LONDON W1J 9BR TELEPHONE +44 (0)20 7493 8181 FAC SIMILE +44 (0)20 7493 2687 WWW.T HER IT zLOND ON.COM T eas A fternoon Tea RITz ROYAL ENGLISH LAPSONG SOUCHONG MOROCCAN MINT TRADITIONAL AFTERNOON TEA CHOCOLATE AFTERNOON TEA An exquisite Kenyan blend of malty IMPERIALE A wonderfully invigorating spearmint tea, Assam and the fine flavour of Ceylon.
