Seven Park Place
St James hotel and club – just away from the bustle, dripping with elegance – is notable for being one of the most intimate and relaxing establishments in London.
The venue combines rooms, a club of the old-school variety, and two places to eat overseen by William Drabble: the main restaurant Seven Park Place, and the more informal William’s Bar and Bistro. Serving as exec chef since 2009, Drabble has rejuvenated modern French cuisine there in all of its luxuriousness, and has found himself the surroundings to match.
With a dining room that wouldn’t look out of place in fin de siecle Paris or one of Prague’s more rococo tea, cake and absinthe dens, Seven Park Place screams luxury as soon as you walk in. There’s a formal air in service, and respect for this expected from the clientele, to match. With a la carte, afternoon tea, and private dining “dinner parties” available – as well as cheese and wine master classes – there’s a focus on choice as well as intimacy and exclusivity.
Seven Park Place is located in Mayfair, London
