Artfarm, the hospitality arm of the modern art gallery group Hauser & Wirth, have already opened the 5-star boutique hotel The Fife Arms in Braemar and Somerset’s Roth Bar & Grill. Now they have some ambitious plans for London.
They're behind The Audley in Mayfair, a five-storey public house and restaurant. It's taking over the space of what used to be a Mayfair pub called The Audley (they're keeping the same name) in a Victorian building which is in the process of getting a complete renovation. Once done there will be The Audley Public House at ground level and Mount St. Restaurant on the first floor. Head upstairs from there and the remaining three floors will be up for hire.
Art will be a big thing for the development, with all the areas designed to showcase art from the Hauser & Wirth art galleries.
In charge of the food will be Jamie Shears, who's worked with Gordon Ramsay, the Galvins and Jason Atherton and was most recently executive chef at CUT at 45 Park Lane.
It's still early days on this one - we'll update with a bigger look at the place and the menu closer to the opening.
