London Loves: Kettner’s Townhouse

There’s something special about Soho at night. Although I’m often adamant I’m not a fan of London in the rain, seeing the glittering oil-slick shiny roads and pavements after a late afternoon of showers- reflecting neon lights on the street below has something quite beautiful about it.

Which is where somewhere like Kettner’s Townhouse comes in. Having been a bit of a London institution for the last 150 years, it was only at the beginning of this year that it reopened after a year of rest- after a shiny new facelift and boasting 33 beautiful bedrooms (trust me), a champagne bar and gorgeous restaurant to boot.

A new found member of the Soho House group, Kettner’s oozes the familiarity of Morris-style wallpapered walls, plush velvet couches and slick twenties decor with a modern and endlessly sophisticated nod. By day it’s a Soho hub for everything from leisurely brunch meetings fuelled by juice and eggs to indulgent afternoon tea. By night Kettner’s transforms into a haven of speakeasy romance, intimate dining by candlelight and the buzz and hum of chatter, clinking and discovery from hallway staircase to barstool catch ups.

After an afternoon of bridal fittings, my mum, best friend and I headed here for an early evening afternoon tea. Typically something we’d have normally squeezed in earlier- it made for the perfect treat before dusk and also gave us a little peep into how special this place really is come evening. With tiers of sandwiches, warm sultana scones and unique cakes and rhubarb macarons- the tea here is certainly not traditional, but offers some seriously delicious treats nonetheless and it’s already been bookmarked in my little black book for the perfect Soho pitstop. Whether you’re after cocktails, cupcakes, pre-theatre dinner or even a particularly fancy Sunday lunch- Kettner’s is worth taking note of…

    Even though I’m a big foodie, love dining out and have been to London so many times, I haven’t been here yet so
    I’m putting it on the top of my list for my next trip to London! πŸ™‚

    I just love your photos. The ones here make me want to go to that place and I usually don’t go to bars

    The atmosphere seems so unique… I love the vintage vibe. Never heard about it before although it’s been there for over a century. Seems like a great place for a dinner date!
