The View, it’s in the name. The new club atop The Athenaeum is all about the cityscape that it looks over. Formerly the hotel’s penthouse where the likes of Kim and Kanye have stayed, the new club features floor to ceiling windows that give uninterrupted views out across Green Park, St James’s Park, Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abbey and the London Eye. Expect to see #viewfromtheview on a feed near you coming soon.
Open to guests of the hotel only the club will serve complimentary tipples along with nibbles from Galvin at The Athenaeum as well as hosting a series of experiences. They’ll be G&T masterclasses, mindfulness sessions and even the occasional performance by an English National Opera soprano and bedtime stories selected by Mayfair’s Sotheran’s bookstore.
The opening of The View is the latest transformation of the hotel, which saw award-winning designer Martin Hulbert designing the new rooms, suites and residences. The hotel showcases the best of British craftmanship, its Art Deco roots, its location and all with a touch of English eccentricity.
The View is open now at The Athenaeum 116 Piccadilly, Mayfair, W1J 7BJ
