The Twenty Two reveals design details

The Twenty Two, a new hotel in London’s Mayfair, has revealed design details ahead of its Q1 opening. Set within a Grade II-listed Edwardian manor at No.22 Grosvenor Square, the 42,500ft² property will house 31 guestrooms and suites, including a Mews house, as well as an all-day restaurant and private members’ club.

The interior scheme is being led by London and Miami-based designer Natalia Miyar, who is working closely with hospitality entrepreneur, hotelier and tech investor Navid Mirtorabi. The Twenty Two is Miyar’s first hotel project, with each room and public space expertly decorated in an opulent yet welcoming style.

Blending rich textured fabrics, embroidered silks, lavish velvets and bespoke wallpapers, Miyar’s concept is a modern interpretation of classic maximalism that pays homage to the grandeur and legacy of the building.  Original architectural features, including double-height ceilings, have been restored in some of the rooms and suites, while modern amenities, mini-bars and 24-hour room service bring the offer up to date.

The F&B programme meanwhile will feature high quality seasonal produce whilst focusing on local suppliers and mindful practices. With a kitchen overseen by Executive Chef Alan Christie, the all-day public restaurant will serve modern-British menus with influence from southern Europe. The beverage offering at each of The Twenty Two’s four bars will showcase the brand’s own spirits, creative cocktails and low ABV alternatives.

Members’ of The Twenty Two, as well as in-house hotel guests, are also invited to use the club as a place to collaborate and unwind, with access to an all-day lounge space featuring a bar and open outdoor terrace overlooking Grosvenor Square, an evening dining room with a covered outdoor terrace, and a cocktail bar.

“We want to redefine the traditional Mayfair hotel and club by bringing a new community to this iconic part of the city,” explains Mirtorabi, whose current portfolio includes Humble, Lunaz Design – Classic Electrical Cars and Little Emperors, as well as various other projects. “To create a space where people can come together and feel welcome, regardless of where they come from, what their profession is and what they wear. London is a melting pot of creative people from all cultural backgrounds and we want to celebrate that.”

The property will be overseen by Managing Director Darius Namdar, formerly of Corbin & King, Chiltern Firehouse and Mark’s Club: “Our vision is to instil a more playful side to Mayfair,” comments Namdar. “Everyone who passes through The Twenty Two will experience exceptional service, be greeted with a smile and, most importantly, feel welcome and accepted, whist enjoying the best hospitality London has to offer.”
