Hotel Café Royal
In December 2012, Regent Street’s famous 19th-century restaurant and bar reopened in all of its extravagant, Louis XVI−style glory as a luxury hotel.

The heart of London’s social scene for nearly 150 years, Café Royal was a hangout for Virginia Woolf, Mick Jagger, and David Bowie. Today, the café’s Grill Room has been reconceived as a champagne and caviar lounge. Bartenders drip absinthe from a traditional fountain and mix it in cocktails such as the Piccadilly (Lillet Blanc, absinthe, gin, grenadine, and sugar). The hotel’s public spaces feature gilded wood paneling and other historic details while the guest rooms are the epitome of modern.

Walking in front of The Café will make you stop—the window fronts are filled with cakes and sweets that make you immediately want to enter for a dessert and coffee, which is what I did. You really did feel like you were royalty sitting at the marble tables and looking out on the streets of London. The latte was one of the best I had had and the cake was superb—it was just the right amount of sweetness to compliment the latte. Plus, it was fun to see how it crumbled with the special knife/fork they gave you to eat it.

Hotel Café Royal
Café Royal, and the other Set Hotels, celebrate the seven arts, among them architecture. The precise restoration and refurbishment of the hotel by David Chipperfield is an architectural delight, and right outside the hotel’s front door is another. The Café Royal is located on Regent Street, a grand achievement of urban design by John Nash. Constructed between 1814 and 1825, the street cut a path through the warren of medieval streets typical of London and connected the city center with the then new Regent’s Park. While only one of John Nash’s buildings still stands, the street remains an impressive feat of urban planning and lined with later, but still listed, buildings.
