An all day Brasserie, Cocktail and Champagne Bar and Seven Private Dining Rooms in the heart of vibrant Soho. Kettner’s has lived, surviving four kings and a queen, the blitz, several booms and more than a few busts, Kettner’s has seen it all and is an integral part of the vibrant, glamorous and debauched Soho we know and love today. Originally a series of four Georgian town houses, Kettner’s was first opened as a restaurant by Auguste Kettner, (chef to Napoleon III) in 1867. Popular with deliciously colourful characters of the time including Oscar Wilde, Edward VII, Lillie Langtry, Agatha Christie and Bing Crosby, Kettner’s was renowned for hosting incredibly risqué parties. Gorgeously glamorous, Kettner’s today boasts an all day Brasserie, Cocktail and Champagne Bar and eight Private Rooms. The Grade II listed building retains much of the original architecture, creating an intimate, homely feel, whilst a recent refurbishment has lovingly restored the space for a modern audience. Kettner’s elegant 1930’s style Brasserie serves Modern European dishes all day with a range of menus to suit all occasions. Kettner’s is situated in the heart of theatre land and the Set Menu is the perfect choice at lunch and for pre and post theatre dining. Live music from Tuesday to Saturday on a beautiful white grand piano sets the evening ambience.
It’s all about British classics at this relaxed brasserie filled with glamour and bubbles. Whether you go for the pan roast venison or the beef bourguignon, you are sure to leave with a smile on your face. The desert menu is something else entirely with chocolate snowballs, salted caramel ice cream and honeycomb cheesecake on offer. Tuesday is Jazzy day, with live music wafting around the tables amongst the buzzing diners, so hop along pre or post theatre or later in the evening for a truly tasty time.
