Tucked away in a hidden space off The Connaught’s Champagne Room is the five star hotel’s all-new hideaway, with a velvet-curtained doorway concealing the Red Room’s entrance. Designed to showcase works in red, this cocooned area is designed by Bryan O’Sullivan in a soft palette that effortlessly complements the artwork. Each of the four pieces is the work of a female visionary, with ‘I Am Rouge’ by Louise Bourgeois taking centre stage above the fireplace. Bourgeois’ piece is joined by works in crimson and scarlet from Jenny Holzer, Tia-Thuy Nguyen and a single photographic piece by Trina McKillen, whilst flanking the fireplace are two striking, vast glass panels in vivid reds and blues by celebrated British artist Brian Clarke – the only male exhibited in the Red Room. Open from Wednesday to Saturday from 4pm – 1am, guests can drink and dine on The Connaught’s exceptional cocktail and wine list and an offering of charcuterie boards, selections of British and French cheeses, oysters, carpaccio and more.
The Red Room operates a no reservation policy for all-day dining and drinks.
