The Athenaeum Entrance

14th January 2019

Prized whiskies

Head over to our newly refurbished bar for a collection of drinks like nowhere else in London. Our signature cocktails by award-winning barman Gennaro Schiano go down a treat, but the real hidden gem in this corner of The Athenaeum is our prized whisky collection. We have more than 100 bottlings to choose from, with some extremely rare varieties indeed.

Panoramic masterclasses

The View is our new private members-style club on the top floor of The Athenaeum exclusively for guests to access. This space offers panoramic views over our glorious city, plus a complimentary drink and nibbles for guests every afternoon. However, what is even more surprising about this exclusive space is the array of events we run here. One day you may enjoy an opera singer serenading you over a morning coffee, while the next you might choose to take part in a mindfulness session overlooking Green Park.

Surprises for the children

As a family-run hotel, we love to offer pleasant surprises to each and every member of the family, and that’s exactly why we have a dedicated children’s concierge. Whether you want to treat your children to milk and cookies before bedtime, or make sure their favourite DVD is ready and waiting for them in your suite before you check-in, the little ones will be sure to have a smile on their faces with these added extras.


Whimsical artworks

We recently had a set of four original artworks created just for The Athenaeum by renowned interior designer Martin Hulbert. You’ll find these artworks in our new rooms and suites and in other spots around the hotel. Designed as old theatre sets, you’ll see something different every time you look at them. We dare you to immerse yourselves in these artworks and find the most peculiar detail you can…

Hidden hot tubs

Unlike many city centre hotels, The Athenaeum has a squirrelled-away spa that is perfect for a little rejuvenation on a London break. Relax and unwind after days spent hitting the shops or wandering around London’s amazing attractions. Guests are welcome to use our hot tubs, steam room and sauna – or even push the boat out by booking an indulgent treatment.

Your own front door

As well as hotels and suites, The Athenaeum also has a number of townhouse residences available to stay in along a traditional a street of Victorian red-bricks. For those who want their own front door in the city, complete with an apartment with a fully fitted kitchenette, lounge-diner, bedroom and en-suite, this is a truly original way to experience London. Our residences also offer a discreet entryway into the main hotel building too, meaning visitors can enjoy the best of both worlds.
