Soho House reopens Kettner's Townhouse

  • Posted 3 months Ago

Soho House has reopened Kettner’s Townhouse, a historic and notorious haunt in Soho, London that was initially established in 1867. The 33-room boutique hotel, Champagne Bar and restaurant joins Soho House’s first stand-alone hotel and public restaurant, the Dean Street Townhouse, opened in 2009.

Kettner’s Townhouse was one of the very first restaurants in London to serve French food and was very popular with a whole host of historical figures and creatives during it’s 149-year history - with visitors including Winston Churchill, Agatha Christie, Oscar Wilde, Bing Crosby and Margaret Thatcher.

Having closed in 2016 and bought by the Soho House Group, Kettner’s Townhouse has now returned with a luxurious and impeccable restoration. Each of the 33 bedrooms on the upper floors are individually designed in a French boudoir style and feature original Georgian timber floorboards and fireplaces, with heritage windows and vintage pieces.

The incredible looking Champagne Bar has the original mosaic tiled flooring and early-deco 1920s design, while the cocktail bar is decorated with French glass lights, a walnut bar with marble top, and vintage photos.

The menu at the French restaurant has a menu "inspired by the history of the building". The design of the space retains the original Grade-II listed details with floral plasterwork and heritage mirrors lining the walls.

Take a look at some shots of the Champagne Bar, restaurant, and hotel rooms below. Head over to the Kettner’s Townhouse website for more information.
