Look sharp with a spa treatment or grooming experience in one of the many establishments near the hotel. At The Athenaeum you will find our fully equipped spa and exercise room. Feel great with a morning gym session or a run with your friends in Green Park. A brief walk from The Athenaeum to Curzon Street where you will find G F Trumper, with their own range of fragrances and shaving products. Call ahead to book for a shave and hot towels, beard trim or moustache wax and curl for a luxury barbering experience.
Exploring the many boutiques and gentleman’s outfitters of Mayfair is enough to fill more than a short break. Mayfair is home to the famous Savile Row, world renowned for its bespoke suits and gentleman’s tailors. Our luxury Mayfair hotel is on Piccadilly, meaning that we’re a short walk from Piccadilly Circus, Bond Street, Regent Street and many other famous shopping districts. From Green Park station it is one hop on the tube to Bond Street and the top stores on Oxford Street.
Mayfair is the home of the dealerships for many top super car brands. Aston Martin and BMW are found on Park Lane, while a short walk away on Berkeley Street are Bugatti, Jaguar, Bentley and Rolls-Royce. On the streets of Mayfair you will also see many examples of custom super cars, making it an automobile lover’s dream.
If you prefer the sea to the land, there are several yacht brokers in Mayfair, including Princess Motor Yachts, Yachtmasters and Sunseeker London.
Look no further than our own Galvin at The Athenaeum for a luxury fine dining experience. Offering a modern cuisine and private dining for groups, it’s the perfect place to eat with friends. With fine weather we offer dining on the terrace. Why not try our Gentleman’s Afternoon Tea which is a unique take on a great British tradition. It includes a tasty selection of sandwiches, Goosnargh duck Scotch eggs and sausage rolls, accompanied by a dram of Athenaeum Blended Scotch Whisky. This makes an ideal gift for Father’s Day or a perfect opportunity to catch up with friends.
