About Kettners

Opened in 1867 by Auguste Kettner, chef to Napoleon III, Kettners is one of the oldest restaurants and champagne bars in London, and something of an institution. Three classic restaurant rooms occupy the ground floor, while on the third and second floors are a set of private rooms, each with its own ambience. The 12-cover luxurious Soho Room is furnished with deep leather chairs, while the elegant Napoleon Room provides a bespoke private dining experience for up to 16. The Pop Art-inspired Paolozzi Room seats six. Largest is the Edward Room which seats 50. Kettners may be glamourous but its versatile selection of menus is far from exclusive. Indulge in anything from a pizza to a fresh fish dish. Over a hundred different types of bubbly and champagne cocktails are served in the bar. Please note that Kettners only accepts bookings of 7 or more through

Please note this restaurant will be closed for refurbishment from 24th August 2008 - 10th November 2008.
