Paint brushes at the ready! This week, London’s hospitality and art scenes are working together to make their mark. First up, look out for one of Lucian Freud’s final portraits, this time starring The Wolseley mastermind Jeremy King, which is coming to auction at Sotheby’s on 15 October. Meanwhile, heavyweight gallery Hauser & Wirth, which branched out a few years ago by adding rooms to its rural outpost in Bruton and acquiring Dean Street members’ club The Groucho earlier this year under its new arm, ‘Artfarm’, has just unveiled The Audley. It’s a traditional boozer in Mayfair complete with a spectacular Phyllida Barlow mural. And don’t forget to move quickly to catch Matchesfashion and Michèle Lamy’s Eggs With Hun breakfasts at the Michmatch Cafe at 5 Carlos Place, where the fashion titans will be hosting delightful conversations and even better bites with artists Lisa Fox, Playton and David Hoyle.
