Brown's Hotel, Donovan Bar

Brown’s Hotel is not only London’s first hotel, but also one of the most illustrious in the city. Since opening on Albemarle Street in 1837, the five-star hotel has hosted esteemed guests, from royals and presidents to world-famous authors. Situated in the heart of the distinguished Mayfair neighbourhood this hotel epitomises style and elegance.

The project was separated into four stages, incorporating a New Albermarle Entrance, relocating the Concierge Desk and Reception area, Kitchen & Restaurant works and renovation of the Donovan Bar. The Albermarle Entrance was remodelled with the existing Concierge desk and office space being converted into a new double entry door for the new Restaurant. Included were new glass panel doors, a marble entrance, timber flooring and wallpapered finishes. The Concierge Desk - a new desk was built for the Reception area which was also upgraded with new leather panels, tiling and glass.

The old Donovan Bar was given a complete facelift to bring new colours and schemes into the space. The bar was repositioned with new Italian lighting being installed. The Restaurant had its floors sanded and sealed to bring a new refreshed finish along with a new layout. The finished result was a modernised property that still maintained its classic style and sense of luxury.
