Mandarin Oriental awaits Mayfair entry
Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group will expand its presence in London this autumn with the opening of Mandarin Oriental Mayfair, London on the historic Hanover Square.
The property comprises 50 guestrooms and 77 private residences, and is developed and owned by Clivedale London, an independent, Mayfair based developer. It will house the first namesake Akira Back restaurant in the UK from Michelin Star award winning Chef Akira Back, as well as his ‘ABar Lounge’ concept and ‘ABar’ rooftop bar. There will also be an urban spa, focussed on renewal and recalibration.
Within walking distance of London’s admired fashion houses on Bond Street and the boutiques of Saville Row, as well as auction houses and art galleries, Mandarin Oriental Mayfair will provide a stylish base in one of the city’s most sought-after areas, where culture and fashion collide.
Taking advantage of this world-class location, the new hotel will offer guests and MO Fans exclusive access and experiences from high fashion to art, culture, and dining.
Designed by internationally renowned Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners (the talent behind the Lloyd’s building and the ‘Cheesegrater’ in London, as well as the Pompidou Centre in Paris), the building’s design has a rich historic context, given its location on the corner of Mayfair’s oldest square.
