Iconic Quaglino’s Set for London Relaunch

Quaglino’s, the iconic restaurant and late-night venue in the heart of London’s Mayfair St James’s, is set to re-open its doors in October 2014 following a full-scale, multi-million pound renovation.

When Quaglino’s first opened, Londoners were dancing the Charleston and King George V was on the throne. The place has history.

The re-launch celebrates 85 years of Quaglino’s iconic heritage; from its opening in 1929 by legendary Giovanni Quaglino – whose love of food and good company created a destination favoured by glamorous society – to Terence Conran’s celebrated remodelling in the 1980s right through to the restaurant’s present day status as one of London’s cherished celebratory destinations.

We’ve certainly had a few nights out there.

A modern interior redesign by Russell Sage Studio will see the signature sweeping staircase, balcony bar, main restaurant and mezzanine private dining rooms elegantly restored, along with the addition of a glamorous central cocktail bar and a stage for intimate live music performances. Art deco touches will remain, with furniture and colour palettes alluding to the era Quaglino’s was first established.

The 240-cover restaurant will feature a contemporary European menu from new Executive Chef Mickael Weiss of classics with exotic flavours and spices from the extended continent, such as slow-cooked Pyrenean lamb shoulder with spiced spinach, Marcona almonds, parsley and goat’s curd and pan-fried south coast cod with artichoke puree and a vegetable and saffron cassoulet.

Both bars will serve a variety of drinks referencing Quaglino’s rich 1930’s heritage with a focus on classic and champagne cocktails and a 300 bin wine list be shown by style rather than country of origin.

Late into the evening, the restaurant will transform to showcase music icons and lounge-style live bands with the space to cater for 250 seated or up to 500 standing with a new sound system. 

Welcome back!
