Inside Annabel’s after its £55m redesign

Legendary members’ club Annabel’s in Mayfair has re-opened after a lavish £55 million redesign masterminded by man of the moment Martin Brudnizki.

The decadent new incarnation of the club has opened two doors down from the original inside an 18th century Grade One listed townhouse in Berkeley Square.

Housed in a larger space, in addition to carrying on its tradition as a nightclub, the new look Annabel’s boasts four restaurants and no less than seven bars spread across four floors. It also features a pair of private dining rooms and a cigar salon.

Founded in 1963 by Mark Birley, private members’ club Annabel’s, named after Birely’s then wife, Lady Annabel Goldsmith, has served as a den of decadence for thrill-seeking celebrities and royalty for the last 55 years.

Everyone from Frank Sinatra, Ray Charles, Ella Fitzgerald and Elizabeth Taylor have graced its dance floor and in 2003 the Queen even paid Annabel’s a visit in her first and only outing to a nightclub.

Keen to preserve the building’s period charm, Brudnizki, who has also worked his magic on The Ivy and Sexy Fish, has painstakingly restored original features including a grand stone staircase, elaborate plaster ceilings and Rococo fireplaces.
