Take sanctuary from the city’s bustle and dive in to the flavours of the Mediterranean at Apero, the elegant, all-day brasserie housed in the original 19th-century vaulted cellars below the luxurious Ampersand Hotel. Offering a tempting menu of sharing plates and cocktails, head chef Mark Woolgar takes inspiration from fresh, seasonal produce, printing menus daily to allow him to easily tweak the dishes so that the best possible ingredients can be used.
Hotel guests and local residents can enjoy cocktails inspired by the tradition of the aperitivo hour in Apero’s bar. Created by the knowledgeable team of bartenders using a selection of the finest spirits, the cocktail menu perfectly complements the small plates inspired by the Mediterranean’s finest ingredients. With leather snugs, Spanish tiled floors and exposed bricks, this intimate London restaurant and bar is where South Kensington chic meets Mediterranean zest.
The Ampersand Hotel offers 111 destination bedrooms and is conveniently located in the heart of South Kensington. The hotel opened after an extensive renovation and is on the site of one of London’s original Victorian boutique hotels, which first opened in 1888.
