We are proud to be a part of South Kensington, an area home to a whole range of bright minds, cultural businesses and vibrant independent venues. That’s why we’ve partnered with some of the local businesses that make the area so special.
Additionally we have partnered up with a number of global brands whose values align with our own, such as The Art Newspaper and Apollo, to highlight their amazing work – as well as to create a unique experience for Cromwell Place members.
So, without further ado: meet our partners.
Food and Drink
Brompton Food Market
Situated opposite Cromwell Place, Brompton Food Market is an independent cafe and restaurant with a beautiful hidden garden. High-quality seasonal dishes are freshly made every day in-house, using responsibly-sourced ingredients.
With its bold, yellow branding, Tease isn’t exactly hard to miss – and the atmosphere inside is just as vibrant. Founded by Annabels and Soho House bartender Cosmo Lewis, the venue is a ‘modern’ tea bar with a focus on wellness and health, and a plant-filled downstairs lounge.
Since the launch of their original Dover Street location, Chucs have taken over London. As well as their three-storey Westbourne Grove venue and their Serpentine Gallery cafe, sites now include Chucs Cafe Kensington, Chucs Cafe Chelsea and their flagship Chucs Belgravia.
Located right in the beating heart of South Kensington’s Old Brompton Road, Bar Margaux’s stylish urban setting is perfect for a sophisticated meeting over dinner. Their menus, designed by Executive Chef Zsolt Ferencz, offer a mix of classic French food and international dishes.
Gyms and hotels
Core Collective Knightsbridge
Founded on the idea that exercise has the power to change lives, Core Collective is a boutique studio with a variety of classes. Their first studio is based at High Street Kensington but they have recently launched in both Knightsbridge and St Johns Wood.
Barrecore opened London’s first boutique barre fitness studio in 2011 and has since grown into one of the UK’s most well-known fitness brands. Their signature method uses technical movements which focus on exhausting your muscles to quickly transform your body and mind.
COMO Metropolitan London
Located on a quiet street in Park Lane, the cool and sophisticated COMO Metropolitan opens onto Hyde Park Corner – and its wow factor doesn’t stop there. British chef Richard H. Turner oversees the live-fire grill restaurant, while the award-winning Nobu offers unbeatable Japanese-Peruvian fusion dishes.
The Art Newspaper
The Art Newspaper is the journal of record for the visual arts world, focusing on international news and events. Its unrivalled coverage is fed by a network of sister editions, with more than 50 correspondents in over 30 countries – and editorial offices in Paris, Moscow and Shanghai.
Founded in 1925 and published monthly, Apollo is one of the world’s oldest and most respected magazines on the visual arts. It covers everything from antiquities to contemporary work, as well as providing in-depth discussion, artist interviews and authoritative collecting advice to its readers.
With a name that needs no introduction, Diptyque are one of the world’s first and foremost purveyors of candles and fragrances. With stores in Notting Hill, Mayfair and Marylebone, they’re also the best-smelling neighbours a space like Cromwell Place could ask for.
The oldest established Champagne house in the world, Ruinart have been exclusively producing champagne since they were founded by Nicolas Ruinart in 1729. Now owned by LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton SA, the quality is just as high as it was 300 years ago.
