Where Agatha Christie and Oscar Wilde were regulars: Kettner’s
This glamorous institution is a must-visit in Soho, one of the oldest restaurants in London and steeped in old-school French charm.
Sip from coupes at the plush champagne bar, try fresh, contemporary cuisine at the brasserie, or relax in the club-like space known as The Apartment or the Pudding Bar. This legendary venue was first opened by Auguste Kettner, chef to Napoleon III in 1867, and was one-time favourite of Edward VII, his lover Lillie Langtry and Oscar Wilde to name a few.
A luxe makeover has made it a top destination to this day.
