Before St. James's was a luxurious boutique hotel, it had a distinguished past as an exclusive Gentlemen's Club. Previously owned by Sirs Michael Caine and Sean Connery -- and frequented by Winston Churchill and Gregory Peck -- this striking building on a quiet cul-de-sac in prestigious Mayfair now houses lavish accommodations. A recent multi-million renovation brought in bespoke furnishings, and rooms offer high-tech perks such as free Wi-Fi and iPod docks. An outstanding feature here is the Michelin-star restaurant directed by executive chef William Drabble. The hotel is also filled with notable Cubist paintings and offers close proximity to shopping and galleries.
Sophisticated and contemporary restaurant with elegant lounge areas
The St. James's Hotel and Club follows in the footsteps of its own distinguished past. The lobby and lounge create an exclusive atmosphere with plush velvet chairs and silk-paneled walls. There are also striking contemporary elements, such as black lacquered furniture set against gold and cappuccino-toned accents. The in-house art collection is the finishing touch to the scene at the St. James's, including works from the Cubist masters as well as pieces of different ethnic origins. The varied art collection is lively and interesting, from Mongolian war helmets in the lounge to frisky 1930s caricatures decorating the bar.
