I knew this would be a quietly luxurious experience: Thirty years ago, Elmer Bernstein chose an apartment (with a piano) at the Athenaeum in which to spend several weeks writing the sound-track to a film in which I was involved. It did not disappoint. There's...More

Modern, relaxed, non-stuffy surroundings. Good ambiance. Mixture of staff, some excellent, others not really in evidence. Food is competent but uninspiring and a little "heavy" We felt incredibly "full" after three courses, but cuisine is tasty enough. It's not a bad place and very reasonably...More

I love cream teas - Claridges, The Ritz, Fortnum and Mason - over the years I have tried them all. But for the price of £35, this is poor. The garden room (where you sit) is in the basement, so very dark with a low...More

This was my third afternoon tea at the Athenaeum in so many years, and definitely my last one. The service was lax and the waiters surprisingly inattentive and we registered that torn jeans and t-shirts seemed to be an acceptable dress code. The tea room...More

Had afternoon tea here with two friends yesterday and can highly recommend it. The Garden Room has a relaxing ambience with comfortable low tables and chairs. The waiting staff, although a little difficult to understand due to heavy accents, were highly attentive offering more sandwiches,...More

Set beside some of London's best parks and home to
world-class galleries, luxurious hotels, and famed
thoroughfares, the ultra upscale Mayfair is one of
London's most exclusive haunts. Here the shopping is
haute, the dining is exquisite, and the nightlife is
vibrant. A casual stroll through the area’s chic
streets will reveal that Michelin stars and
chauffeured cars are practically the norm here. Even
