Hotel Café Royal Venue Hire W1
A London Legend Reborn True to its original glamorous spirit, Café Royal has reopened as a luxury 5 star hotel in the heart of central London. With elegant Mayfair to the west and creative Soho to the east, Hotel Café Royal is perfectly positioned within walking distance of London’s finest shopping streets, tourist attractions and theatre land.
Paying homage to the history of the building, grand historic areas have been sensitively restored and a selection of restaurants, bars and events spaces are a tribute to the rich heritage of excellent hospitality and dining. In its reincarnation this iconic London landmark now features 160 contemporary guestrooms, including 54 suites and seven signature suites. Continuing its celebrated legacy, Hotel Café Royal offers a selection of restaurants and bars for guests to enjoy. At the heart of the hotel, the Ten Room offers British informal dining all-day, while the Green Bar is the perfect place to relax and unwind with a cocktail.
Restored to revive the ornate Louis XVI décor and detailing, the jewel of the hotel, the Oscar Wilde Bar (formerly the iconic Grill Room, originally established in 1865), is now the place to enjoy Champagne, cocktails and a light menu of British dishes, complemented by live entertainment on select evenings.
The Café, on Regent Street, revives the European tradition of café culture. To complete the full experience, the Akasha Holistic Wellbeing Centre is an urban retreat spanning over 1,200sqm/13,000sqft. Akasha is leading a new concept of wellbeing, featuring a state-of-the-art-gym, large lap pool, Watsu pool, sauna and Hammam/steam room and offering a range of signature treatments which marry innovative Western practices with ancient Eastern traditions.
Hotel Café Royal is the second member of The Set, a collection created to redefine the concept of the luxury hotel for sophisticated, design literate travellers in the 21st Century. Working to an uncompromising brief that called for hotels that were not only of the moment but that would define their times and locations, architects and designers to rework the DNA of the grand hotel and create spaces that are contemporary in conception, whilst simultaneously evocative of the style and glamour of the past. Located in existing landmark buildings, each member of The Set is rooted in the history and culture of its location as well as the contemporary needs and desires of its guests.Packages
