As London welcomes the arrival of the Frieze international art fair(s) – three of London’s finest hotels join in on the festivities with art-inspired activities and amenities. All October long, art enthusiasts can celebrate in style across London.
In partnership with Frieze London and Frieze Masters, The Mayfair Townhouse offers exclusive complimentary tickets to both Frieze events to the guests booking rooms with the Frieze package priced from £480.
And for the cherry on top – the package also includes a speciality cocktail during the guests’ stay.
Eager to get in front of an easel? The Mitre in Hampton Court is conducting a resident artist course overseen by Melanie Cambridge. It’s a two-day affair in which the Hampton Court’s Pond Garden and Bridge will become the subject of guests’ expertly advised paintings. The course costs £300 pp.
Art history lovers can pop into The Hari in Belgravia to enjoy a line-up of fine art-themed cocktails. From Jackson Pollock to Frida Kahlo, bartender Giuseppe Abbracciante has concocted delicious cocktails inspired by some of the most infamous works of art, such as the Studio 54 – a cool take on the classic Bloody Mary cocktail inspired by Andy Warhol’s famous Campbell’s Tomato Soup painting.
Cocktails, including the Van Gogh-inspired “Stargazer”, are priced from £16.
