Artfarm, the hospitality company founded by the Somerset-based gallerists and art collectors, Iwan and Manuela Wirth, have opened The Audley pub on Mayfair’s Mount Street - giving new life to the 18th-century Audley Public House.
The Audley offers three distinct, art-led experiences: a street-level public house, the first-floor Mount St Restaurant and four spaces on the upper three floors housing four beautifully designed spaces available for private hire. Naturally, art is the backbone of the project, with a revolving showcase of important works throughout, as well as works and installations by Hauser & Wirth’s roster of leading international artists.
The food at The Audley is overseen by British Chef Jamie Shears who has worked with Gordon Ramsay, Jason Atherton and was most recently executive chef at CUT, London - Wolfgang Puck’s restaurant at 45 Park Lane. Expect a refined classic-contemporary fusion menu drawing inspiration from London’s culinary history. Downstairs, the bar offers a sophisticated twist on pub grub.
