Named after the eponymous character created by Virginia Woolf, an author whose name will forever be associated with the area, Dalloway Terrace is set to become central London’s best kept secret.
Fully heated, this indoor-outdoor, all-day dining destination is located just off Great Russell Street in The Bloomsbury Hotel and will offer the peace and charm of a secluded secret garden in the autumn and winter and the perfect alfresco hideaway in the spring and summer.
With its fully retractable roof and hidden lower level, the dining space opens at 7am daily, for light breakfasts followed by brunch and an all-day dining menu. Situated in Bloomsbury, an area rich with literary history, guests will also be able to enjoy a traditional Afternoon Tea, inspired by the Bloomsbury set (an influential group of English writers, intellectuals, philosophers and artists).
Elsewhere the decor – created by Alexander Waterworth – draws subtle design inspiration from the 1930s. Menus will feature a floral motif based on the technique of preserving fresh flowers, while classic typefaces will evoke a sense of nostalgia.
