A new bar, called The Wigmore, will soon open at The Langham, headed up by Michel Roux Jr.
The Langham London already has one venue overseen by Roux Jr, the Roux at The Landau restaurant. The bar will open this summer 2017, with a design inspired by traditional British pubs and taverns. However, it will also be influenced by continental luxury for a high-class touch. The design is by the Martin Brudnizki Design Studio.
On the menu at the bar/pub will be some traditional offerings, like a raised veal and ham pie and devilled lamb’s kidneys. The team behind Artesian, the award-winning cocktail bar at The Langham, will be in charge of drinks. They will also be assisted by food and drink advisors The Gorgeous Group. A selection of wines on tap, cask ales and craft beers will be available.
The bar is named after Robert Harley, Baron of Wigmore and Hertfordshire, 1st Earl of Oxford and Earl Mortimor.

The design of the bar will feature his coat of arms in recognition of his literary influence in London.
The Wigmore will be attached to the hotel, but it will have its own entrance on Regent Street to make it more accessible to the public, as well as hotel guests. The bar will be in a former banking hall, the high ceilings of which will help to form the grand art deco look, along with a chandelier and an emerald-green bar.
Roux at The Landau is 10 years old this year. It houses the Palm Court bar, which is also run by the Roux family. They also own the two-Michelin-starred London restaurant, Le Gavroche, where Roux Jr is chef-owner.
The Wigmore will be a relaxing space for both drinking and eating, ideal for a warm winter hideout, as well as somewhere to go when it opens this summer.
