Throttling a cocktail

A studio apartment with a difference in Mayfair’s Mount Street

Estate agent Roy Brooks became famous in the 1960s for the derogatory descriptions he gave to the properties he marketed and such phrases as “not enough room to swing a cat” were amongst his most frequently used. His advertisements were chronicled in two books, Brothel in Pimlico and Mud, Straw and Insults, and he’d have had a field day if he’d taken on a £625 per week studio flat in Mayfair currently available through agents Wetherell.

Situated on the fourth floor of 92 Mount Street and opposite Scott’s restaurant – the scene of the now infamous setting where Charles Saatchi throttled his now ex-wife Nigella Lawson – is a “micro-pad” studio flat with a difference. Described as being “one of the smallest homes ever released onto the Mayfair market”, this 323 square foot air conditioned space has been “sexed up” and designed to resemble a cocktail bar.

 

Features include a coffered ceiling with light features, cocktail bar shelving with wall mirrors and LED shelving; a black-metallic paneled, gold edged, drinks bar and bar-stools; Louis Vuitton style dark-wood panelled fitted cupboards and ebony coloured faux leather flooring. The bathroom has been decorated in the Art Nouveau style and as well as “Connaught Hotel style chairs”, there is a 13 foot by 4 foot cocktail terrace.

 

Aside from being a perfect entertaining pad, the owner has ensured the studio is also practical. Hidden within the bar is a hob, oven, drawers and cupboards and the sofa and drinks area converts into a bedroom complete with concealed storage and utilities such as a washing machine. At just £89 per night, this studio represents surprisingly good value for money given a rather basic room in the Holiday Inn in Berkeley Street would set you back £209 per night.

 

It would have been interesting to have learnt the late Roy Brooks’ opinion of this apartment. He’d have almost certainly got in some kind of reference to “throttling a cocktail”.
