The Mandrake

The scent of jasmine hangs in the air at The Mandrake, an independent boutique hotel owned by Rami Fustok.

20-21 Newman Street, London, W1T 1PG

Tube: Tottenham Court Road Station , Goodge Street Station

 
 

The scent of jasmine hangs in the air at The Mandrake, a 34-room independent boutique hotel set around central courtyard surrounded by hanging gardens. Set up by entrepreneur Rami Fustok, a Londoner born in Beirut and the son of sculptor Bushra Fakhoury, the hotel has been inspired by the medicinal properties of the Mandrake plant. Design touches have a slightly narcotic bent, hinting at the aphrodisiac. This is bourne out in the priceless art collection which includes works by Francesco Clemente, Jonas Burgert and Peter-John de Villiers among others, soundscapes come from French sound engineer Pierre-Arnaud Alunni and scents from Azzi Glasser. The hotel hosts an 'Artist in Residence' with Mark Mahoney, one of Hollywood's top tattoo artists, the first to hold the position. A basement screening room and restaurant from the team behind Hong Kong's Michelin-starred Serge et le Phoque complete the package.

 
 
 

Ham Yard Hotel

Art enthusiasts can get a guided tour of Ham Yard and some of Soho and Mayfair's most prestigious galleries.

Kit Kemp's passion for art is evident in the interior design of all Firmdale Hotels and at Ham Yard you can book in for a guided tour. Distinctive artworks range from Tony Cragg's sculpture at the centre of Ham Yard Hotel's courtyard, to the mesmerising A Million Times installation by Humans since 1982 and Martha Freud's 32 glowing porcelain pots, which feature within the restaurant. Starting in the drawing room, you'll be guided through Kit's personally chosen art collection, before going on an intimate walking tour to some of Soho and Mayfair's most prestigious galleries, led by curator Olivia Paterson. The walk ends with a three-course lunch or afternoon tea at Ham Yard.

The Beaumont

The boutique Mayfair hotel has a stand out inhabitable sculpture by artist Antony Gormley.

8 Balderton Street, Mayfair, London, W1K 6TF

Tube: Bond Street Station , Marble Arch Station

 
 

'Angel of the North' artist Antony Gormley has created an incredible inhabitable sculpture of a crouching man on the side of The Beaumont, a 75-room boutique hotel in Mayfair owned by Jeremy King and Chris Corbin. The sculpture isn't the only noteworthy work of art. The building itself is a 1920's Art Deco structure originally used as a garage. King and Corbin, who have made their name with top notch eateries like The Wolseley, The Ivy and Le Caprice have spent £40 million doing the place up. The result is a spectacular hotel with a royal suite, Colony Grill Room restaurant, a small private private dining room, American lobby bar, spa and leisure facilities as well as a unique work of art.
