The Promenade at The Dorchester is set to return following a complete transformation by acclaimed designer Pierre-Yves Rochon and with a new, modern British menu overseen by culinary director Martyn Nail, one of the industry’s most accomplished talents.

The Promenade will capture guests’ imaginations from the moment they step through the timeless new lobby of The Dorchester.

The interiors by Pierre-Yves Rochon encompass the hotel’s charming eccentricities whilst bringing a fresh elixir of colours inspired by the British landscape.

Flanked by striking pillars along the depth of the space, delicate white and soft sage green ceilings are finished with gold leaf accents.

Surrounded by exceptional gastronomy from modern British menus at The Grill to three Michelin starred French cuisine at Alain Ducasse and famed Cantonese dining at China Tang, The Promenade returns as the ever-welcoming heart of The Dorchester.

Here, a contagiously warm energy dances through the day from the indulgent breakfasts where lobster casserole and buttermilk pancakes will take centre stage, to vibrant lunches with generous superfood salads accompanied by a trolley of seasonal ingredients, and elegant afternoon teas.

As evening descends, the space will transform once again into an intimate dining room that shines with the glow of good company and great surroundings.

Located towards the end of The Promenade, the interiors of Artists’ Bar have been imagined by revered designer Pierre-Yves Rochon. From the moment guests arrive they will be captivated by the dramatic mirrored ceiling, flanked by striking pillars along the length of the destination bar.

The design encompasses The Dorchester’s charming eccentricities, with powder blue seating dotted along the bar, circling a grand crystal chandelier, while signature patterned carpets swirl under foot.

A new destination for Londoners to be at the heart of Mayfair, Artists’ Bar will be a glamorous and sparkling area for fun evenings of champagne, seafood and entertainment.

The interior shines at every angle from the bar’s own Lalique crystal designs and Liberace’s legendary mirrored piano, which has been meticulously restored to take pride of place.

Cocktails, served tableside on bespoke trolleys to create a touch of theatre, will reflect the carefully curated collection of artwork that adorns the walls.

At Artists’ Bar, the inspiration for the spectacular artwork and for the signature cocktails is one and the same, with six signature cocktails named after each piece. Ingredients for the cocktails mirror the references and influences that each artist used to create their work.

Culinary director, Martyn Nail has curated an elegant menu focusing on British-caught seafood to complement the cocktails and champagnes served at Artists’ Bar, with options including: a Caviar selection, Irish rock and native oysters; potted shrimp, lobster cocktail and seabass ceviche; as well as a selection of sashimi and sushi.

Perfectly situated in the heart of London since 1931, The Dorchester stands tall in Mayfair with Hyde Park on its doorstep. The hotel will reveal its new interiors on the ground floor first, with the re-design of rooms and suites to be unveiled in March 2023.

The Dorchester remains open for guests throughout the comprehensive renovation.
