Mortons is ineffably cool, sexy and old-world classy. Originally built for the Chancellor of the Exchequer in 1823 and famously one of the automobile record-setting Bentley brothers‘ favourite haunts in the Roaring Twenties, Mortons has held sway over London‘s luminous social scene for the past thirty years. Now helmed by restaurateur extraordinaire Marlon Abela, Mortons staunchly maintains its elite personality while remaining a hip and desirable option for the bold and beautiful. Set over four storeys, Mortons encompasses a night lounge, bar, restaurant and club room. It also houses one of the most enviable collections of modern and contemporary artwork in the capital with Frank Auerbach, Joan Miro and Henri Matisse represented amongst many other noteworthy artists.
Each floor entails a different ethos - the night lounge is all high-spec industrial chic glamour. The bar is art deco sultriness with glass panels gazing out onto Berkeley square. The restaurant on the penultimate floor features one of the most talked about terraced dining rooms in Britain and executes Mediterranean-tinged cuisine with panache (Marlon Abela‘s two A Voce restaurant in NYC both currently hold Michelin stars). Dishes like scallops with fregola sarda, broad beans and Niçoise olives never disappoint. The clubhouse effectively merges business and pleasure - it‘s available for private hire and ideal for corporate gatherings.
With a menu of events spanning all areas of entertainment, a varied and select clientele drawn from all walks of life, and a rich tradition of character and charisma, Morton‘s is intractably one of the capital‘s superlative clubs.
