A stay at The Fox Club is a taste of traditional Mayfair style with a fun and relaxed twist. It takes its name from a former resident of the building, James Fox, a well know civil liberty campaigner who had a certain long-term and infamous affair within the premises.
Although steeped in genteel history, they take Fox’s libertarian streak seriously, and continue to offer a fun alternative to their smarter neighbours.
A member’s club at it’s heart, the bar is twenty-four hours, encouraging an eclectic mix of people through its doors. With luxurious bedrooms upstairs you quickly feel like a part of the fox’s den. Centrally placed on Clarges street, just a few steps away from St James’s Park, with Buckingham Palace and Piccadilly on its doorstep, it has the perfect location.
The hotel itself is in a tall townhouse, with a fire lit bar and restaurant warming your first point of entrance. This sets the scene as a lovely escape from the busyness of London outside, an ideal tucked away secret of the well-trodden Mayfair.
Our room was an elegant, smart and cosy place to rest. The furnishing is a traditional, glamorous style, with two large, original windows leading you out to two balconies. Comfort was at the heart of this stay, with friendly staff below, we enjoyed both drinking in the bar as well as retreating to our room.
Balconies always set the scene for glamour in my eyes, and these really made the room shine. A joy to wake up to, open and let the sun beam in from floor to ceiling. Teas and coffees are available in your room and a large bathroom awaits you with Molten Brown toiletries, all of which are a good sign of the luxury you are staying in.
The restaurant matches the rooms relaxed-luxury style and breakfast, lunch and dinner are served here at an additional cost. This is quite a hot-spot for people to pop into and dine, it’s busiest around lunch time but you have priority if you’re staying upstairs. Definitely try to eat here on your stay, it’s a lovely experience.
Overall waking up here was an absolute delight, most importantly for its location, and for the ability to open the balcony doors out to the world whilst sipping on your morning coffee. No biscuits in the room sadly but you can’t have everything! A most lovely boutique hotel, highly recommended which stay in the city.
