Kettner'sThis elegant Baroque building houses a French restaurant, champagne bar and a Soho House owned townhouse hotel with 33 rooms. Originally a grand hotel built in the 1860s by Auguste Kettner, chef to Napoleon III, Kettner's was taken over by Soho House in 2018 and restored to its Edwardian beauty. Set in the heart of bohemian Soho, Kettner's is a renowned Theatreland haunt and often has a buzz about its grand, belle epoque interiors. Over the years a fair few personalities have passed over its impressive threshold, including writer Oscar Wilde, King Edward VII and his mistress Lillie Langtry, Agatha Christie and Bing Crosbie. Critics have expressed a certain nostalgia towards the previous set-up, where even hard-up students could have a slice pizza and quaff champagne in opulent surroundings at an acceptable price. Certainly, with a three-course meal for two with wine coming uncomfortably over £100, the food comes at considerable price. But a night at Kettner's really isn't about budgeting - start the evening in the adjoining Champagne Bar, one of the most celebrated places to drink fizz in the area, or stay the night and you'll be in for a treat.
