Café Royal opens as hotel and restaurant for the Olympics (Condé Nast Traveller) | Definitive Cities

Cafe Royal as it will look in London when it reopens

A London institution will reopen this summer as a luxury hotel. Café Royal began life in the 1860s as a place to eat and drink, and has been legendary ever since, popular with the city’s in-crowds through the decades: Oscar Wilde, Noël Coward, Virginia Woolf, Brigitte Bardot; then, later, rock stars and royals, with rumours abounding of debauched parties behind its velvet curtains.

In summer it begins a new chapter. David Chipperfield Architects have reimagined the Grade I-listed building at 68 Regent Street, which has been closed for half a decade. They have sensitively updated the listed interior, which dates from the 19th century and also from its first refurbishment in the 1950s.
