Starry-Eyed Surprise / Hg2 MUST-STAY

Hedonists of London! Come one, come all! This city is going up in the world. November 2012 will hail the birth of the Big Smoke’s first six-star hotel, The Wellesley. The new townhouse must-stay will boast 36 luxurious suites, the Oval restaurant (offering the finest in Italian dining) and the Crystal Bar (with its whisky and cognac wall). Many of the city’s music lovers were all down and out when the jazz club, which was the previous occupant of 11 Knightsbridge, shut down, but the Wellesley has recently announced that it is bringing rhythm and blues back to town. The Jazz Room at the Wellesley will be reminiscent of a speakeasy, the perfect place for an under-the-radar rendez-vous, all thanks to interior design wizards Fox Linton who are getting their inspiration from the brochure for the original 1920s Art Deco interior. We’ve heard that the opening is going to be big, with an international jazz act to ensure the Jazz Room launches with a bang. Book the four-bedroom penthouse suite and the lead table at this jiving joint will be yours, not to mention the exquisite views across Hyde Park and private lift that also come with your sixth-floor apartment. A must-stay, if ever there was one.
