London’s highly anticipated new luxury lifestyle destination, The Twenty Two, has opened its doors on Grosvenor Square.

This 42,500 square foot Edwardian manor is a Westside hideaway for the creative and the curious, housing 31 bedrooms and suites, including a mews house, an all-day neighbourhood restaurant and private members’ club.  

Sitting on the corner of North Audley Street and Grosvenor Square, The Twenty Two is located in one of London’s most central spots, effortlessly becoming a half-way meeting point for East and West London. Speaking to the brand’s core ethos, The Twenty Two aims to become London’s living room for both local residents and international guests alike.  

Drawn to the Parisian feel of the building’s exterior, proprietor Navid Mirtorabi’s realisation of the project began six years prior to opening and has been the driving force for the creative vision from the outset.

Mirtorabi chose to partner with Natalia Miyar Atelier to bring his vision to life, on what will be her first hotel. They looked to 18th century classical French design to inspire the property’s interior, reinterpreted for the modern-day through rich, playful textures and custom upholstered pieces.

This has influenced choices at every level; minor details such as gold fringing and velvet piping to statements like bevelled mirrors that dance with both gleaming natural daylight and warm reflections in the evening glow. 

“My ambition for The Twenty Two was to create a space where the creative and the curious, in London and globally, can come together and feel welcome; a living room of sorts where guests feel inspired and at home in their surroundings,” comments Navid Mirtorabi, Proprietor of The Twenty Two.    

Darius Namdar, Managing Director, formerly of Corbin & King, Chiltern Firehouse and Mark’s Club, adds: “Our vision is to instil a more playful side to Mayfair. We want everyone who passes through The Twenty Two to experience exceptional service, be greeted with a smile and, most importantly, feel welcome and accepted, whilst enjoying the best hospitality London has to offer.” 

The Club at The Twenty Two is split across the ground and lower ground floor and features four exclusive spaces, reserved for patrons and hotel guests only: The Living Room and outdoor terrace overlooking Grosvenor Square, The Dining Room, The Music Room and The Vault Bar.  

The Club is a place to collaborate and unwind, with exclusive access to an all-day space, The Living Room. On the lower ground, The Dining Room is for patrons and hotel guests to indulge in dinner. It is linked to The Music Room, a discotheque space for late night dancing as well as The Vault Bar, featuring an outdoor lower ground terrace.
