The May Fair Hotel in London was opened in 1927 by King George V and Queen Mary, quickly earning a reputation as one of the most elegant and stylish hotels in Europe. Since the 1950s it has been a destination for global icons of the music, fashion, and film industries. In 2004, the hotel underwent a transformation by Edwardian Hotels with the addition of new wings and floors, and a contemporary aesthetic achieved through the application of glass, leather and marble. The 404 room hotel features twelve unique signature suites as well as the May Fair Spa, May Fair Theatre, and May Fair Kitchen.
May Fair Kitchen offers a selection of Spanish and Italian small plates complemented by the finest wines. The restaurant makes use of natural materials throughout from the hardwood flooring and panelled walls and furniture to the bronze top and marble top tables. Large latticework screens create a layering effect that divides the space, while maintaining a feeling of openness. Floor to ceiling windows run the full length of the restaurant, inviting sunlight to spill over the space throughout the day. Butterfly Chair and Butterfly Bar Stool in two differing heights designed by Autoban and crafted by De La Espada features throughout in white and black leather.
