Corbin & King at our Mayfair round table
We are delighted to welcome renowned restaurateur, Jeremy King, to our second research Mayfair round table this week.
Jeremy is famous along with his business partner Chris Corbin for acquiring, creating and running some of London's best-loved and most successful restaurants. These include Le Caprice, J Sheekey, The Ivy and their current portfolio which is made up of The Delaunay, Brasserie Zedel, Fischer's in Marylebone High Street, and Bellanger in Islington. The Beaumont in Brown Hart Gardens, Mayfair, is their first hotel.
In partnership with Grosvenor Estates, Corbin & King re-purposed a Grade 2 listed art deco building which had housed garages and Avis Rent-a-car offices into the five star Beaumont Hotel. Architects Reardon Smith removed the interior structure behind the retained façade, while creating two additional floors on the roof. The interior design of the hotel by Fiona Thompson of Richmond, evokes the elegance of pre-war Mayfair and includes a Turkish Bath. An 'inhabitable sculpture' in which you can stay as a hotel guest, was created by Sir Anthony Gormley and sits above the hotel's south wing.
