Hudson’s House Bloomsbury address, inside the St Giles Hotel, sets it apart, but not quite aloof, from boho Soho and Theatreland on the West End’s edges – a fitting home for the 21st century Bloomsbury hipsters.
Designed by Alexander Waterworth, the interiors visionary responsible for the likes of the radical revamp of legendary nightclub Annabel’s, Soho Beach House, Miami, The Club at The Ivy and Le Caprice, NYC, Hudson’s House is unselfconsciously hip; a comfortably eclectic mix of old and new.
Lounge around in the cloistered booths or on the street terrace in leather settees and knock back classic cocktails with a 21st century kick like the Caipirinha, French 75 or the Breakfast Martini. The menu is solid British, from a good old fashioned Welsh Rarebit to cheese and meat platters; from great slabs of steak to pan-fried hake.
With 80 covers, daytimes cater for brunches, business lunches and family groups while evenings evolve from dinner service to late night private gatherings.
