Glass experiences Jazz Age glamour at The Wellesley Hotel

WITH suites named for the likes of Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington and Ella Fitzgerald, it’s only to be expected that The Wellesley Hotel should celebrate its jazz heritage with flair. Housed in the former live music and cabaret venue Pizza on the Park, The Wellesley combines the glitz of art-deco style with immaculate service and a modern take on 1920s glamour.

The hotel sits in the heart of Knightsbridge, looking out onto the leafy borders of Hyde Park. A stone’s throw from cultural highlights including the Natural History Museum and V&A, as well as the famous Harrods and Harvey Nichols department stores, this is an ideal location from which to explore one of London’s most exclusive neighbourhoods. The Wellesley emulates this sense of culture and history within its walls, with its Crystal Bar and Cigar Lounge carefully designed to evoke the intimacy and decadence of a 1920s private club. Live music shows are hosted each Friday and Saturday in the hotel’s Jazz Lounge, serving up performances by emerging and high-profile artists alongside the finest of Italian dining experiences.

The aura of the Jazz Age continues into the décor, which was devised by Fox Linton Associates to restore the space to its former grandeur. This is most apparent in the hotel’s dazzling lobby, with its glossy marble flooring, mirrored walls and sweeping crystal chandeliers. Bedrooms blend a modern monochrome design with lavish furnishings and touches of gold. Guests can enjoy a 24-hour butler service and complimentary Rolls Royce chauffer service for local journeys, lending stays at The Wellesley an extra touch of old-world glamour.
