A vision of opulence
There’s little wonder why Bacchanalia has been dubbed the most expensive restaurant in the world. Housed in a former Porsche garage, it cost £75 million to transform the building into an exquisite interpretation of classical opulence. With flowing sculptures by Damien Hirst, bespoke glass by Paul Clifford and original, 2,000-year-old statues, this is a temple to beauty and craftsmanship giving guests the opportunity to escape to a world of the senses and imagination.
Craftsmanship in every detail
Brown & Carroll were involved in almost every aspect of this unique fit-out. From trenching and piling underneath the building, through to creating a cantilevered mezzanine floor, the premises needed to be able to support a vast weight of marble, stone, ornate metalwork and statuary. But it’s in the detail that the fit-out of this project really comes alive. The ladies’ restroom uses over 400,000 tiles to conjure up the mystical world of the Garden of Hesperides. Three hundred books of 24-carat gold leaf have been used to bring bold luxury to the main dining spaces.
