Mews of Mayfair

7 user reviews 4

Tucked away off the cobbled streets of an historic courtyard, Mews of Mayfair is where elegance meets eccentricity. You can't fail to impress mum and dad with dinner on the second floor, where antique maps and original beams create an Imperial vibe. Wow them further with a couple of drinks on the ground floor cocktail bar then finish by checking out the basement lounge; the perfect spot to unwind and reflect on a stunning night of drinking and dining.
