The Arts Club, the private members’ club established in 1863, is to add 16 beautifully designed hotel rooms and suites to its impressive Mayfair townhouse in late 2014.
Located on popular Dover Street, the hotel will offer a discreet escape and enable guests to access all of The Arts Club facilities, including the three restaurants, garden and nightclub.
The suites, which are on the second, third and fourth floors of the Georgian building, are elegant and glamorous in design and each evoke the style of Europe in the early 20th Century.
The original Arts Club in 1863 had six bedrooms in its home in Hanover Square, but the bedrooms did not transfer across when The Arts Club moved to its existing home in Dover Street.
Ranging in size up to around 100m², the suites will include furnishings from iconic designers in Europe, such as Jacques Adnet, Gio Ponti, Finn Juhl, Piero Fornasetti and Hans Wegner with finishing including specially embossed leather headboards, eglomise mirror panels andhand tufted rugs.
Ceilings will contain mirror elements with stretched fabric while the bathrooms will feature walnut doors and marble.
Alice Chadwyck-Healey of The Arts Club, commented: “Many of the Arts Club members have asked us to expand our offering so we expect plenty of demand to stay.
“We believe that the new hotel will attract a very international guest, who wishes to relax in a high-quality, glamorous and discreet suite in central London.”
The hotel, which has been created by London design specialists Sagrada, is due to open in the fourth quarter of 2014.
