Blakes Description

Book a table at Blakes

Nestled beneath the gloriously couture Blakes Hotel one of London's greatest gastronomic secrets hides in subterranean splendour. Blakes Restaurant is not just for guests but has become, over the course of more than three decades, a destination in itself. Serving cuisine that has been designed by Anouska Hempel with as much attention to detail as her architectural projects and over the years has been refined and perfected. With delicate influences from the Orient and Asia to the decadent indulgences of Europe, each item on the menu entices the senses. On few menus in the world would Sashimi sit so comfortably next to a huge Blini crowned with smoked Salmon and Caviar. Like the immaculate room in which it is served, the cuisine reflects the tastes and travels of Anouska Hempel and every guest leaves with a treasured experience.

Created by Anouska Hempel, the London hotelier and internationally renowned designer, the hotel offers her style, elegance and sensational service to the well-travelled connoisseur. Blakes is now established as totally unique and has been the model for the "fashionable small hotel" in London and cities around the world. Respected for protecting the privacy of it's clients against the paparazzi, it is the London base for film stars, musicians and all the top designers, earning it's reputation as The "Couture" Hotel.

Blakes, is situated in the quiet residential area of South Kensington. Easily accessible by underground (South Kensington or Gloucester Road) and a short taxi ride from Harrods and Knightsbridge. A five minute walk can take you to the fashionable Brompton Cross or the Kings Road. Museums such as Victoria and Albert, Natural History and the Science Museum are only five minutes by taxi or a fifteen minute stroll. The Hotel is also close to London's famous Royal Parks with Hyde Park, Kensington Gardens and The Albert Hall.

Miss Veronica, London (2 years 9 months 23 days ago)

“Insanely expensive. Only go here if you are proposing to someone and can put it on expenses. That said, the environment is unique and seductive. Very 1930s with a strange gothic overtone. Imagine Poirot's dreams after too much Absinthe. The food is divine and the wine list is very good if you can take that kind of pressure.”
