A D V E R T I S E M E N T | My friend and I had the absolute pleasure of enjoying dinner as guests of the Studio Kitchen eatery of K West Hotel & Spa.
K West Hotel & Spa underwent a dramatic interior redesign in November 2014, inspired by the cult West London hotel’s rich music heritage and history of musicians staying at the hotel. Formerly the BBC Building Kensington House in the 60s, an endless list of Rock ‘N’ Roll royalty has stayed, played and misbehaved at K West – Bob Marley, Bowie and The Kinks to name a few.
Studio Kitchen is an informal eatery with an urban New York vibe. Edgy city landscape sketches stretch along the walls, mirrored by a quirky wave of banquet seating.
Sprinklings of filament light bulbs suspended on individual wires add an abstract, arty feel to the room.
