Afternoon Tea at Kettner’s

I’m having a bit of a love affair with Kettner’s in Soho at the moment ever since I went for dinner a few weeks ago. The whole ambience of the place completely lured me in, with its sumptuous private dining rooms, velvet soaked nooks and crannies to snuggle into and the strains of big band jazz tickling my ears.

Kettner’s

Perched on the corner of Romilly Street and Greek Street, right in the heart of Soho lies Kettner’s. Adding to the salubrious history of Soho, Kettner’s comes equipped with its own tales of glitz and glamour. Originally opening as a restaurant back in 1867 by Auguste Kettner, (who just happened to be the chef to Napoleon III, casually) the list of the famous and fabulous who have supped, dined and danced here is truly amazing. Oscar Wilde was a huge fan and Agatha Christie and  ...
