Welcome to another edition of Premier Hospitality where the crème de le crème of UK restaurants, bars and hotels are united in one magazine.
In this month’s issue we feature the Gatsbyesque ballroom in Claridge’s; we sample the breathtaking view from Oblix at The Shard; and we take a look at what Robert Angell has been up to.
Situated in the heart of London, and housed within a beautifully designed Art Deco room, Clarigde’s ballroom has been lovingly restored to its 1920’s grandeur by prestigious designer Guy Oliver. Claridge’s has been a royal favourite down the years and it is now once again fit for a King. Located over the entire 32nd floor of The Shard, Oblix offers diners stunning views of London, from the Houses of Parliament to Battersea Power Station. The restaurant references a New York grill as the backdrop for the menu with dishes delivered in the Rainer Becker signature style of upscale, sophisticated, urban dining.
Heading up the 100-seat restaurant and 100 cover lounge and bar, Becker chose Chef Fabien Beaufour, who began working in a professional kitchen at the age of 14 in his native Grenoble, France. Having worked and staged in some of the most acclaimed restaurants in the world, Beaufour has developed a philosophy of cooking that mirrors Becker’s; quality, precision, and consistency.
Based in London, Robert Angell Design Studio is a young expanding company currently working throughout the UK and Europe. Over the last decade, Robert has designed some of the most prestigious and luxurious restaurants, hotels, residential and retail interiors for the biggest brands Work from the studio has featured in several editions of Premier Hospitality and we thought it about time you got to know the man behind those fantastic designs a bit better.
Now, with all that and more it’s time to sit back and enjoy another edition of Premier Hospitality.
