The restaurant area was stripped back to shell, as was the basement private dining, kitchen and office areas. The fit-out works involved many specialist trades including ‘fine decorating’ to the ceilings, walls & floors, order control systems, new catering equipment and bespoke furniture.

Works were completed within a 12 week time frame, despite the addition during the works of refurbishing a hidden vault area under the Piazza which was converted to form restaurant WC facilities.

Located just off the Covent Garden Piazza, the client commissioned Russell Sage Studio to produce a concept design based upon the history of the building, which was previously constructed by the Duke of Bedford in the 1870's.

Prior to this the building was a hotel of some ill-repute called Hummums, which was a Turkish Bath establishment frequented by the gentry and politicians of the time, and it is specifically mentioned in the Charles Dickens novel ‘Great Expectations’.
