This Christmas, step through the doors of London’s first hotel and into a tropical festive fantasia, with decorations designed for Brown’s by legendary British designer, Sir Paul Smith.
This novel-Noël concept is inspired by the 125th anniversary of the publication of The Jungle Book, penned by acclaimed author Rudyard Kipling at Brown’s, with tropical fruit and wild animals playfully adorning the hotel. A quirky combination of the classic and the unexpected, much like the iconic British brands, Paul Smith and Brown’s.
For almost two centuries Brown’s has been at the heart of London’s festive celebrations. With sparkling fairy lights outside its doors on Albemarle Street, the hotel is located just moments from the tinkling bells and bright displays of Bond Street. Guests can make the most of Mayfair this festive season and expect the unexpected by celebrating at Brown’s with two of Britain’s most iconic brands.
Throughout the decade-long friendship between Brown’s and Paul Smith, Sir Paul’s furry Office Manager, Mr Brown and the hotel’s own soft monkey mascot, Alby, have formed a bond too. After travelling the world together, these globetrotting explorers are returning to their favourite festive destination, Brown’s in London, to enjoy mulled wine in front of the fireplace and reminisce over holiday snaps. Little guests staying at Brown’s will receive their very own fluffy Alby toy upon arrival; whilst big guests can also enjoy a variety of festive surprises throughout December, ensuring memorable moments for all.
Brown’s Hotel, a Rocco Forte hotel located in Mayfair, the beating heart of London’s literary history, is honouring the 125th anniversary of the publishing of Rudyard Kipling’s Jungle Book which was written in what is now rightly named the Kipling Suite, with a limited-edition hardcover reproduction, exclusively created for hotel guests.
The celebration of the literary classic continues throughout the hotel for all guests to enjoy and includes a Jungle Book afternoon tea reading, a Cocoa-Nut spa treatment and a special Jungle Julep cocktail at the Donovan Bar, only available until 5th January 2020.
Looking for a place to curl up by a fire and relax after a long day of shopping on Bond Street? Enjoy a festive take on the much-loved British pastime, once regularly enjoyed by Queen Victoria at Brown’s and have a festive afternoon tea. Curated especially for the season, guests are invited to settle into a comfortable armchair, warmed by a cosy log fire, and savour three tiers of themed treats and an aromatic glass of mulled wine or Champagne, accompanied by the sound of carols played by the hotel’s resident pianist.
In addition, Brown's would be delighted to welcome you for Christmas dinner at their newly-opened restaurant, Charlie's. With its bright botanical palette, Charlie’s is perfectly designed for the hotel’s jingle-jungle theme. The hotel’s new restaurant, led by Chef Director, Adam Byatt, will serve a decadent six-course menu on Christmas Day showcasing great British dishes with local ingredients, such as Moxon’s smoked salmon, Blackwell farm turkey or Essex goose, complemented by Christmas pudding, mince pies and more. Guests can also enjoy à la carte option for dinner, continuing the festivities into the evening.
