Debuting its first UK opening, Smith & Wollensky is a 300-cover American steak restaurant situated in the Adelphi Building behind The Strand.

Echoing the architecture of the building, the restaurant’s décor subtly nods to the Art Deco period, most notably through the use of real copper leaf detailing on the ceiling and an intricate monochrome mosaic marble bar flooring in the centre of the room, framed in timber. A classic aesthetic runs throughout with the addition of timber wall panelling and an impressive central bar.

A blackened steel bar crafted from antique copper and brass with a neutral Carrara top also provides a focal point to Smith & Wollensky. Complemented by blacked mirror panelling, the bar area provides a social exchange for all.

Spread over two floors, the large space also includes three private dining rooms which are all adaptable, according to party size.
