Kettners serves fresh, contemporary brasserie food and furniture!

This legendary venue was first opened by Auguste Kettner, chef to Napoleon III in 1867. Its recent refurbishment plays off the frisson of its proximity to the theatres… back to when it started, so conveniently situated next to the stage doors when it was a favourite of Edward VII and Lillie Langtry and  Oscar Wilde.

My favourite room has to be ‘The Apartment’ with its wooden wall paneling along with the decorative geometric ceiling. All the individual pieces of retro furniture in the different corners of the room create a real residential feel to the bar, a bit like going out but feeling like you are still in the comfort of your own home – my perfect night!

Highlights include the Warren Platner side table and matching grey Panton Cone Chairs and comfy Le Corbusier style sofas.

Urban Reef goes Retro!

Picture 3

Loving the new interior of one of the UK’s most exciting new bar and restaurants – Urban Reef at Boscombe Bay, Dorset.

With an open log burning fire, an oak clad wall holding 60 candles, a beautiful 50’s inspired interior and designer furniture with a triple height glass frontage flooding the building with light, it creates an amazing space for both summer and winter dining.
