Kettner’s Townhouse To Re-Open Under Soho House Umbrella

Soho House group has confirmed it will reopen the iconic 150-year-old London venue Kettner’s Townhouse as a restaurant, champagne bar, and 33-room hotel later this month.

The historical Georgian building in London’s Soho was originally established by Auguste Kettner in 1867, who was said to have been the chef for Napoleon III. Later, the building housed “Kettner’s Townhouse”, one of the first French restaurants in the area.

The Soho house group acquired the property last year and will reopen the venue as the hospitality group’s second stand-alone property in London. The group opened Dean Street Soho in 2009. The new venue will retain the original theme with French food and 33 lavish 1920s-style boudoir style rooms. The suites have there own private entrance, a large emperor bed, spacious living and dining areas, as well as purpose-built bathroom pods with freestanding copper baths and separate rainforest showers.
