The Beaverbrook Town House Feels Like Your Best Friend’s Luxurious London Flat

Nestled halfway up Sloane Street, opposite the serene Cadogan Gardens, Beaverbrook Town House oozes sophistication and charm. The interiors, marked by a striking Japanese apothecary cabinet, lead you to the arsenic-tinted Sir Frank’s bar, which has rapidly garnered fame as the hangout spot after work or before a theater night.

Tracing back its lineage, Beaverbrook Town House owes its existence to Joel Cadbury and Ollie Vigors, who once owned the Beaverbrook mansion in Surrey, an intelligent country retreat. Their collaboration with the Cadogan Estate birthed this urban gem, with Frank Lowe curating the London-themed art collection and Nicola Harding crafting the cozy yet elegant interiors reminiscent of the estate’s Garden House.

The rooms are all theatrically themed, each named after a London theater adorned with framed memorabilia from past productions. Those are mixed with homey Surrey fabrics, vintage cushions,  and modern four-poster beds (in some suites). Beaverbrook has thoughtfully arranged interconnected rooms for families and provides amenities to keep children engaged. 

Oh, and the service is impeccable. From reception to the bar, staff members offer assistance with a warm smile, ensuring you feel catered to without being smothered.
