The Mayfair Townhouse – Mayfair, W1
Spread across 15 Grade II-listed Georgian houses in London’s historic Mayfair, this playful yet sophisticated spot draws on its rich history and literary associations to evoke an ‘Oscar Wilde meets Alice in Wonderland’ aesthetic. The sister property to countryside stalwarts Cliveden and Chewton Glen, the Townhouse has the feel of a home away from home – a discreet residency for those in the know. At its heart, the colourful Dandy Bar has already become a hot spot for Mayfair’s chic crowd, serving a dazzling array of cocktails and an impressive all-day menu with scrumptious small plate classics like tuna tartare, and truffle and parmesan arancini, overseen by Michelin-starred chef, Adam Simmonds. Rooms and suites all showcase individual touches. There are 172 to choose from, though you wouldn’t know it, tucked into different corners of the connecting townhouses as they are. From cosy cabin rooms designed for one to Garden Suites that open onto a walled courtyard garden, there is something for everyone at this future classic.
