“Fresh Picks” features the latest luxury properties admitted into the Kiwi Collection. This week, we take a peek inside 45 Park Lane.
Where: Birthplace of the Rolling Stones and Robert Pattinson, it’s London calling. More specifically, the new hotel is parked in the heart of Mayfair, right next door to its storied sister property, The Dorchester.
What: The total number of suites is just the address plus one (yes, 46). Plus a chic cocktail bar where, by the looks of it, Mad Men characters sipping whiskey would fit right in. The stand-the-test-of-time interiors were designed by Thierry Despont. And the exterior, that’s futuristic; A façade of aluminum fins reduces solar gain and the power required to run air-con.
Who: Brad and Angelina for one. Well, two technically. Just a few days ago the infamous couple shacked up here.
Why: Pitt and Jolie. They stayed here. Enough said. But if you need more Grade A Top Choice Meat than that to woo you, inside there’s also CUT, a modern steak restaurant, the latest from Wolfgang Puck. Chop, chop.
