The View at The Athenaeum

26th November 2018

From its lofty position atop The Athenaeum, The View is a exclusive club for hotel guests to soak up panoramic views of London. With floor-to-ceiling windows, cosy seating areas with coffee tables and design-led furniture, this is a space that offers a stylish retreat from the buzz of the city down below.


Every day, guests at The Athenaeum can enjoy a complimentary tipple together with nibbles supplied by our restaurant by Michelin-starred brothers – Galvin at The Athenaeum. It’s a space with a regular array of inspiring experiences going on too, from masterclasses on making the perfect G&T to mindfulness sessions overlooking Green Park. There will even be an occasional performance by an English National Opera soprano over a breakfast Mimosa and bedtime stories selected by Mayfair’s famous Sotheran’s bookstore.


True to its name, however, The View is all about the cityscape of London the space overlooks. While there are plenty of spots in London to get a bird’s eye view of the city, few places offer a panoramic experience from such a luxuriant and exclusive setting. As well as views over the Royal Green Park, you can also see St James’s Park, Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abbey and the London Eye from our privileged spot above the rooftops.


You’re in good company when you visit The View too. Formerly the hotel’s penthouse apartment, The Athenaeum decided to open the space back up to guests for an exclusive experience they can all enjoy. While it was still a penthouse suite, however, guests included the likes of Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West. The Athenaeum boasts a long line of famous guests, from Elizabeth Taylor and Nelson Mandela, to Samuel L Jackson, Harry Styles, Natalie Portman and Russell Crowe, to name but a few. Take That also announced their split from The Athenaeum, and Steven Spielberg edited E.T., Close Encounters and Raiders of the Lost Ark from the property too!

The launch of The View is the latest transformation of The Athenaeum. Award-winning designer Martin Hulbert oversaw the design of The Athenaeum’s new rooms, suites and residences. His designs make the most of the greenery and natural light from the property’s location by the Royal Green Park while capturing the essence of the historic Mayfair location.


Showcasing the best of British craftsmanship and the hotel’s Art Deco roots, the new designs also incorporate a touch of eccentricity in a series of bespoke new whimsical artworks, featuring London landmarks with everyone from David Attenborough riding an elephant to the Queen with her Corgis. The newly redesigned bar completes the new feeling of The Athenaeum – a hidden hideaway with Kinnersley Kent Design jewel toned chairs, signature cocktails and cosy alcoves overlooking The Athenaeum’s verdant living wall.

Make sure you pay a visit to The View when you book a stay with us.
