ONCE con­sid­ered the venue of choice for dan­ger­ous li­aisons, Soho restau­rant Kettner’s has re­launched as Kettner’s Town­house, with home in­spi­ra­tion at ev­ery turn. There to cel­e­brate were Fawn and In­dia Rose James, be­low, of Soho Es­tates.

Un­der the Soho House helm, with a twist, it is a glo­ri­ously deca­dent break from the cosy mem­bers club model. The Geor­gian build­ing, where Os­car Wilde had il­licit assig­na­tions and the fu­ture King Ed­ward VII was said to have wooed Lil­lie Langtry, now houses 33 bed­rooms, a restau­rant and a cham­pagne bar.

The orig­i­nal spi­ral stair­case leads to the en suite rooms with their wooden floors, Geor­gian fire­places, her­itage win­dows and vin­tage chan­de­liers. An art col­lec­tion is in­spired by the build­ings’ ru­moured rep­u­ta­tion for af­fairs, with in­stal­la­tions by Danny Au­gus­tine and Sara J Bea­z­ley. Visit ket­tner­stown­ to book.
