The Athenaeum Hotel & Residences

In the heart of Mayfair, opposite tranquil Royal Green Park, you will find the award-winning, one-of-a-kind Athenaeum Hotel & Residences. A proudly independent spirit acts as a driving force behind this truly unique family-run five-star hotel.

The Athenaeum has been re-opened following a multi-million-pound refurbishment, with Michelin-starred chefs The Galvin Brothers now at the culinary helm, it promises an exclusive experience reflecting its proud Art Deco history and welcoming in a new era of sophisticated luxury.

Our brand-new entrance takes you inside our spectacular new architectural double storey lobby and lounge areas with floor-to ceiling windows giving the impression of being in, rather than opposite, Green Park. This impressive space is peppered with elegant bespoke furniture and flooded with natural light, making it the perfect spot for Afternoon Tea, a coffee, or a place to simply relax and take in the views. Outside, the new Terrace is one of the few outdoor dining areas on Piccadilly.
