Above Mount St. Restaurant, discover a collection of rooms: four beautifully designed spaces each with its own story and available for private hire.
Situated in the elegant Victorian building on the corner of Mayfair’s Mount Street and South Audley Street, The Audley offers guests three distinct experiences: The Audley Public House, a traditional London pub on street level, Mount St. Restaurant, a modern London restaurant on the first floor, which then leads to three floors housing four beautifully designed spaces, each with its own story and available for private hire.
Built in 1888, The Audley was designed by Thomas Verity, the man who designed the exterior of the pavilion at Lord’s Cricket Ground. Paris-based Luis Laplace, who designed various Hauser & Wirth spaces including Somerset and Menorca, was the lead architect behind the restoration of The Audley. With a signature style that is both bold and timeless, Laplace’s design is refined and tailored while subdued, allowing the art to take centre stage in the building.
Head Chef Jamie Shears (previously of 45 Jermyn Street and Wolfgang Puck’s The CUT at 45 Park Lane) has created a distinct menu, with one foot in the past and an eye very much on the present. Working closely with farmers, growers and makers to secure the freshest seasonal produce from around the UK with an emphasis on sustainability.
Art is at the heart of the building, with The Audley acting as a showcase for extraordinary and important works alongside specially commissioned site-specific art interventions created by Hauser & Wirth’s roster of globally celebrated artists, including Phyllida Barlow in The Audley Public House, Rashid Johnson in Mount St. Restaurant and Anj Smith in the Games Room turret.
Over 200 pieces of art feature throughout The Audley, including works by Andy Warhol, Henry Matisse, Lucian Freud, Ferdinand Hodler, Peter Fischli and David Weiss.
