Those London bound for the holidays are in luck as the Mandarin Oriental Hotel near Hyde Park is ready to showcase some of their newly renovated spaces.
Positioned near Harrods, in the hub of Knightsbridge, the hotel is in the perfect spot to dose up on the festive cheer, especially if you’re heading to Winter Wonderland.
Once you’re done exploring and shopping, step into the newly designed lobby featuring glass chandelier in the shape of a closed flower bud and artwork by Fredrikson Stallard. Then, tuck into the reshuffled menu at the Bar Boulud under the eye of an English born executive chef John Barber. His menu will feature dishes with a British contemporary twist on French classics. A Christmas and New Year menu will also be available.
Award winning Dinner by Heston Blumenthal will reopen with Chef Ashley Palmer-Watts at the helm showcasing a new selection of dishes. The restaurant’s iconic meat fruit will make a comeback, featuring a festive twist with a plum jelly rather than the traditional mandarin jelly.
The Rosebery will unveil its festive afternoon tea and welcome this year’s Harrods Christmas Bear, Oliver, for all young fans of Mandarin Oriental to enjoy this holiday season. Executive Pastry Chef Paul Thieblemont and his talented team have created homemade sweet treats such as Honey Tree Madeleines and Santa’s Lollipop for the occasion.
Have you been good this year? Then go ahead and treat yourself.
