The restaurant is steeped in drama with the use of screens made from a variety of antiqued and coloured olive glass detail, adding an element of intrigue to the layout of the venue and also allowing guests to dine in privacy if preferred. Large bay windows provide guests with an insight into the hustle and bustle of modern day London with elevated views onto Speaker’s Corner and Marble Arch, contrasting with the heritage of the building and the traditional interior design elements within.
The bar creates the first impression as you enter the space with the use of striking bevelled mirrors and a variety of clear and coloured glass, used to reflect the marriage between the classical and contemporary design elements. Another key feature includes a glamorous mirrored chimney breast and elegant fireplace, providing a warm welcome to guests as they arrive.
For the interior design of the restaurant and bar, the team wanted to create something in keeping with the history of the building whilst also taking on the new distinct personality of the brand. The origins of the building itself would again be hugely influential within the design focus as the team sought to recreate the classical feel of London but with a contemporary twist.
Lanes of London is an interesting one: a hotel restaurant serving up the best of British street food. The decor’s fairly traditional and classic but the menu less so - the all-day menu’s split into various London foodie destinations including Brick Lane, Portobello Road and Kingsland Road so you’ll find plenty of inspiration here. There’s a danger that they’re trying to be all things to all people but Lanes makes a welcome change from some of the stuffier places in Mayfair.
