Have you heard about The Berkeley’s metamorphosis? An institution in Knightsbridge, the luxury London hotel has been undergoing an architectural renovation that’s set to be unveiled in early summer. Stay tuned for all the details, but suffice it to say: top architects are modernizing the façade for a “show-stopping entrance” made of glass, steel, and carbon fiber beams.
Other upgrades to the hotel include new terrace suites, and a makeover for the iconic Blue Bar (originally designed by David Collins). After a new decoration and redesign by Robert Angell, the Caramel Room—where the hotel hosts its fashion runway-inspired Prêt-à-Portea—will be named the Collins Room after the late interior architect David Collins.
Speaking of Afternoon Tea, the famous Prêt-à-Portea is celebrating its 10th birthday this year. And for the Queen’s 90th birthday on April 21, The Berkeley’s tea will feature royal-inspired treats (and the Crown Jewels).
