It was 1929 when iconic London restaurant Quaglino’s opened. King George V sat on the throne. Londoners were dancing the Charleston. The first ever British sound film, Alfred Hitchcock’s Blackmail, was shown to the public.
Actors and musicians have visited the restaurant over the years. Judy Garland had her wedding reception there. Even royalty has enjoyed the place.
Quaglino’s became the first restaurant to be visited by a reigning monarch when the Queen dined in 1956.
The Mayfair venue has now reopened its doors following a £3 million renovation, marking 85 years as one of London’s premier dining destinations.
Designed by Russell Sage Studios the new look incorporates an underlit bar and stunning backlit central staircase using materials supplied by Translucent Creations Ltd.
