Tucked beneath the Victorian cellar arches of The Ampersand Hotel, Apero Restaurant brings a shot of fresh Mediterranean style to the heart of South Kensington. Softly lit, with cool white metro tiles and exposed brick walls, Apero is an intimate, laidback restaurant in Kensington, where you can catch up over a shared plate of something deliciously simple and modern. Both locals and hotel guests gather here from breakfast to late evening, drawn by menus inspired by the Mediterranean's best-sourced ingredients, and the region's most enduring flavours. The buzzy bar at Apero, which is tended by staff with a real passion for what they serve, is an understated but glamorous spot to get into the ‘aperitivo' spirit with a signature cocktail, or glass of wine before sitting down for dinner.
The Snug, Apero Restaurant
An intimate space filled with plush leather banquettes, The Snug (6 seated) offers discreet dining, with the ability to cordon off the area with elegant drapes.
The Wine Room (10 seated) is adjacent to Apero Kensington restaurant, housed underneath the Victorian brick vaults of The Ampersand Hotel. Its elegant ambience is defined by its polished basalt floor and oak banqueting table, surrounded by 10 sturdy leather-bound chairs. This arrangement allows you to take over the whole room with friends.
Available for Kensington private dining, wine tasting and intimate events, The Wine Room showcases the hotel's red wine collection in an imposing floor-to-ceiling display that dominates an entire wall. When not booked for private groups, it operates under the same opening hours as Apero.
Tucked away on the lower ground floor yet filled with natural daylight, The Wine Room offers individually adjustable air conditioning and background music system with iPod dock
