HAVING undergone 18 months of refurbishment, this September Mayfair’s Beaumont Hotel reopened its doors once more.
One of their most significant updates, all designed by New York-based architect Theirry Desport, is in the heart of the ground floor. What once was the hotel bar, it has now been completely transformed into Gatsby’s room – no longer serving cocktails, but offering visitors The Beaumont’s new afternoon tea experience.

Like the rest of the venue, it boasts a relaxed ambience, with the hopes that people who are paying a visit to Mayfair’s shopping scene would use it as their mid-afternoon pitstop. Think sinking into walnut-framed sofas and mahogany barrel chairs – all of which was inspired by the building’s 1926 origin.
One can expect the typical array of finger sandwiches and sweet treats, however, The Beaumont has worked on putting together a separate vegan and gluten-free menu to allow all diners the chance to indulge – all accompanied by the most helpful and charming service.
