Tom Kerridge creates menus for newly opened Pavilion Club Knightsbridge
Tom Kerridge, owner of the two-Michelin-starred Hand & Flowers in Marlow, has designed the menus for the Pavilion private members' club in London's Knightsbridge, which opened today.
The six-storey property also has a serviced club and members' lounge, two members' bars, 17 private office spaces and one penthouse suite. The interiors have been designed by Russell Sage Studio.
His first members' club venture, Kerridge's simple, seasonal dishes include bacon and smoked cheddar burger, dressed Cornish crab with radish and apple, and a smoked king oyster mushroom masala with coconut naan. The menu will be available across all three levels of the members' club.
Kerridge said: "We are really looking forward to this. It is an incredibly exciting project in the heart of London that connects the business world and entrepreneurial spirited, like-minded people with a food style that is fast, accessible but also high level. The brand ethos of Pavilion Club and the Tom Kerridge group sit really well together, as it is about embracing people and personalities, whilst delivering a high-end product that guests recognise and enjoy."
The drinks list offers wines from small producers, including organic and bio-dynamic options, with LVMH Champagne and craft beer as well as cocktails created by bar manager, Fabrizio Donno, formerly bar supervisor at Stanley's in Chelsea and bar manager at Tramp members' club in Mayfair.
The property, 64 Knightsbridge, overlooks Hyde Park and was originally built for the London & County Bank in 1884. Between the 1920s-1990s it served as the Danish Club and was acquired by Pavilion in 1996. Located next door to the Mandarin Oriental hotel and opposite Harvey Nichols, the site was most recently home to luxury serviced offices.
Harry Hunt, director of Pavilion Club, said: "We are excited to be able to deliver a new breed of members' club for people who are looking to enjoy both a casual, yet sophisticated environment nestled in the heart of London. With the evolution of remote working and working from home, Pavilion Club will provide people with the perfect space to enjoy from day to night."
Pavilion operates three luxury buildings across London in Kensington, Cannon Street and St James.
Kerridge also operates Kerridge's Bar & Grill at the Corinthia London hotel, the one-Michelin-starred Coach and the Butcher's Tap, also in Marlow, Buckinghamshire, and the Bull & Bear restaurant at Manchester's Stock Exchange hotel.
