Malmaison London is situated in Charterhouse Square, on the sharper edge of the Square Mile. It's a grand Victorian red brick property which stands in a leafy cobbled courtyard in fashionable Clerkenwell. A truly elegant hotel, it boasts stone flourishes and extravagant archways. Tasty, beautifully presented cuisine is prepared by head chef John Woodward and his team using local ingredients and served up with professionalism and passion, whether you're looking for the best business lunches, a quick light healthy bite or a delectable dinner. The brasserie is beautifully chic, with mood enhancing lighting and a lively atmosphere. The original vaults have been opened up to create intimate dining spaces, while cosy corners with plumped silk and velvet cushions create a warm relaxed environment. If private dining is your preference, then either room is perfect for larger private soirées and can hold up to 30 people. This can be partnered with the Veuve Cliquot Champagne bar and transformed into a stand up Champagne reception for up to 80 people. For smaller get-togethers the London Mal features a private dining room that seats up to 14 people. The other dining space, The Butcher's Block, features banquet-style dining from an imposing wooden block table that seats six. Here the order of the day is mouth-watering meats and tender joints cooked to perfection, fresh from the meat markets of Smithfield. Chez Mal is open for breakfast and dinner seven days a week, lunch from Monday to Friday and Sunday Brunch.
