Hotel Cafe Royal London launches Diwania Lounge in collaboration with Harrods

This summer, Hotel Café Royal will launch an exclusive pop-up in collaboration with London’s most famed department store, Harrods.

From the end of Ramadan, The Pompadour Ballroom, a beautifully restored room in the gilded style of Louis XVI, will be transformed into an extension of the Mezzah Lounge at Harrods. Inspired by the food and culture of the Middle East, this sensational space will be open as the Diwania Lounge for the summer in London.

Reminiscent of French palaces belonging to the most prestigious royal families, this beautiful all-day lounge will be adorned with luxurious chaises-longues, sumptuous sofas and embroidered cushions. Harrods Home will add statement pieces, making it an individual, stand-out space for invited guests and hotel residents.

With a selection of dishes created by the Head Chef of the Mezzah Lounge at Harrods, Hotel Café Royal’s Diwania Lounge will serve traditional Middle Eastern dishes in a beautiful yet contemporary environment. The exceptional menu will include hot and cold meze, grilled chicken skewers, marinated lamb cutlets and tagine, as well as delicious delicacies like baklava and Turkish delight. These dishes will be complimented by a selection of international dishes from the hotel’s own culinary team, under the guidance of Head Chef, Armand Sablon.

Guests can enjoy cool summer evenings on the terrace, with panoramic views of Regent Street, one of London’s most famous landmarks. This exclusive terrace is an ideal place to enjoy mint tea and shisha, in the stunning setting of Mayfair’s historic buildings and elegant architecture.

Harrods will also present “Made With Love”, with a range of products showcasing the quality and craftsmanship behind Harrods’ most-loved brands. With a focus on the story behind the brand, these products are exclusive to Harrods, highlighting the provenance, history and artistry behind each remarkable piece. With personalisation services such as engraving and monogramming available at Harrods throughout the summer, Made With Loveshowcases the excellence behind our top international brands.

This exceptional Middle Eastern lounge is available by confirmed reservation and invitation only or to guests of the hotel’s suites – from the beautifully detailed red and gilded Club Suite to the 500 sqm six bedroom Royal Wing.

Open from 15th July until 31st August 2016, until 3 am daily.
