Red Room, The Connaught
An artistic hideaway of splendor and elegance at The Connaught Hotel.
Red Room is a speakeasy hidden within The Connaught Hotel. The space takes inspiration from a series of Louise Bourgeois pieces collected by the client. Letting the artworks lead, we imagined the space to feel like the guest was sitting in the living room of an art collector. The furniture, a blend of studio originals and mid-century finds, is eclectic and relaxed.
The main area is dominated by two vast stained-glass windows in vivid reds and blues by London-based Bryan Clark, with a large circular pendant overhead. Front of bar is moulded high shine ceramic panels in oxblood with pink onyx bar top and back bar which is backlit. Directly in front are custom stools, each with a sparkling crystal stem.
Tucked away is the oxblood snug, designed for intimate occasions. It features a solid marble table and antique Murano chandelier.
