Venue Features
The Scene:
Located in Knightsbridge on the edge of Hyde Park, the Bulgari Hotel London is both a haven of calm in the centre of the city and yet under a minute’s walk from such landmarks as the famous Harrods department store. Since opening in 2012, Bulgari has set new standards among the luxury hotels of the British capital. Elegant contemporary architecture and Bulgari’s legendary flair for design are matched by class-leading quality of service. 
Design:

As an entirely new-build property, Bulgari London benefits from having been conceived and designed from inception as a luxury hotel. Noted architect and designer Antonio Citterio was given free rein to create an environment that is faithful both to the design heritage of Bulgari and the status of London as one the world’s most exciting, dynamic and international cities.

With furnishings from Citterio’s Flexform Collection, handcrafted drapes by Enzo degli Angiuoni, plush carpeting by Altai and B&B module libraries featuring a carefully selected collection of all time classics and design books, Bulgari London presents an outstanding and elegant setting to hotel guests and locals alike.

Signature use of silver throughout the property offers subtle quotations from Bulgari’s roots as a Roman silversmith, a theme that is carried throughout the hotel, with such touches as the specially woven silk curtains featuring a pattern inspired by a brooch made by the firm’s founder Sotirio Bulgari during the 19th century. 

Standout Venue Features:
The Screening Room, dedicated to Sir Richard Attenborough, is a unique 47-seat cinema at the Bulgari Hotel. Offering the ultimate exclusive experience, it features the most advanced cinema-quality HD sound and vision, 4K resolution in 2D or the latest Dolby 3D. A curated library has over 200 new and classic films. As well as hosting film premieres and private screenings, the multi-function room is ideal for press events and corporate presentations. There is every feature one would expect including live screening and playback of broadcast, integrated technology with individual electronic voting and microphones as well as dedicated Audio Visual Support. The room is perfectly insulated to ensure zero sound reverberations.
Awards & Notables

In 2009, Bulgari decided to take action on behalf of disadvantaged children around the world, as too many children are unable to fulfill their own aspirations because their lack of education perpetuates the cycle of poverty. Partnering with Save the Children, Bulgari launched a campaign of unprecedented ambition and scope, in which part of the proceeds from the sale of Save the Children jewelry – custom designed by Bulgari – is donated to the charity.

Inspired by the iconic B.zero1 jewelry line, the special collection comprises a ring, launched in October 2010, and a new pendant, launched in April 2014. The collection's two pieces are available in Bulgari stores worldwide, select department stores and on Bulgari’s website (in the US and Japan) for €420 ($480) each, of which €75 ($100) is donated to Save the Children. After almost five years, the partnership has developed into a strong and long-term relationship.

Bulgari supports some of Save the Children's key strategic areas of intervention, including emergency relief, with a targeted focus on education, as it is the company's bold belief that no lasting development is made without education and learning. Interventions target the children most difficult to reach, while tackling the growing problem of urban poverty. With the additional proceeds from the sale of the new pendant, Bulgari is expanding the scope of its activities and focus on health by supporting Save the Children’s life-saving interventions for the most vulnerable children: newborns.

Over the past decade, the world has made amazing progress in reducing child mortality – which has nearly halved from 12 million to 6.6 million – thanks to global political action on immunization, treatment of pneumonia, diarrhea and malaria, family planning and nutrition. But this progress could stall without urgent action to tackle scandalously high numbers of newborn deaths. Bulgari has decided to take a stand in this global effort, saving the lives of 50,000 babies and their mothers through a financial commitment of €1 million. With enormous influence and unrivaled experience on the ground, Save the Children is the world’s largest independent international organization running programs in developing as well as developed countries. Teaming up with Bulgari’s brand ambassadors, it continues its exemplary work wherever its support is needed most.

To date, Save the Children’s programs have reached over 600,000 children and trained over 20,000 teachers through educational activities and initiatives in more than 1,200 schools, many of which are located in areas affected by conflict, extreme poverty or emergencies. Bulgari’s donations benefit under-privileged children in 23 countries, including: Afghanistan, Albania, Australia, Bolivia, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Brazil, China, Colombia, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Haiti, India, Italy, Ivory Coast, Mexico, Montenegro, Japan, Jordan, Kenya, South Sudan, Uganda, the UK and the US.

Eats & Drinks
Food, Restaurants, Cafes, Bars & Lounges
Food, Restaurants, Cafes:
Rivea London
Inspired by the many years Alain Ducasse spent visiting the vibrant food markets in Italy and Provence, Rivea London offers French and Italian cuisine in a chic, convivial and relaxed setting with informal yet impeccable service. Alain Ducasse is championing his protégé Executive Chef Alexandre Nicolas, who is at the helm of the restaurant. His menu incorporates the classic flavours and vivid colours of the Riviera, with a focus on simple flavours and the best ingredients.

Private Dining Rooms
Adjacent to the dining room, Rivea London's private dining rooms are suave and intimate spaces seating up to 24 guests. The rooms present the perfect setting for intimate dinner parties, more formal business lunches, or festive celebrations. Custom designed private dining menus are available to suit every occasion and make your experience both personal and memorable.

The Chef Alexandre Nicolas
Having spent more than ten years under the tutelage of Alain Ducasse in London and Paris, Executive Chef Alexandre Nicolas is the natural choice to head-up the Rivea London kitchen.

Originally from Brittany and son of a greengrocer, Alexandre’s passion for food was developed during a childhood spent on the Rungis market. His career in cuisine saw him work in some of the finest establishments; the kitchens of Palais du Luxembourg (the home to the French Senate), the Lancaster Hotel and La Maison Blanche on Avenue Montaigne in Paris before joining  Alain Ducasse Entreprise in March 2003.

Bars & Lounges:
The Spirit Room
The Spirit Room is an elegant, intimate and private room located in a quiet corner of Il Bar. Designed to emulate a lounge in a private house, with a selection of books to enjoy; the space provides a more private alternative to the main bar for pre-dinner aperitifs, after dinner drinks, or traditional English afternoon tea.

The room displays beautiful vintage and rare spirits and guests will enjoy the friendly and attentive service from Il Bar staff. Subdued lighting, wooden decor and intimately positioned clusters of custom made sofas and armchairs create a cosy and relaxed atmosphere for up to 20 people.

Edward Shakian Cigar Shop & Sampling Lounge
The internationally renowned and multi-awarded cigar merchant Edward Sahakian established the Cigar Shop and Sampling Lounge of the Bulgari Hotel as the premier London destination for connoisseurs in search of truly exceptional vintage cigars. Specialising in rare Havanas that are quite simply unobtainable anywhere else, the cigars are sourced from Edward Sahakian’s private collection, which has been assembled over the last forty years. 

The provenance and condition of each cigar is unimpeachable and unparalleled and offers such treasures as the fabled Davidoff 80 Aniversario, the Gran Corona made in Cuba for the 80th birthday of Zino Davidoff in 1986; the Churchill sized Davidoff Dom Perignon and a near complete range of Cuban Davidoffs.

Il Bar
The timeless glamour of Il Bar is concentrated around the central hammered metal bar, a unique sculpture in white metal created by Italian artisans in honour of the hammered finish that distinguished the exquisite silverware of Sotirio Bulgari. With its polished black granite floor, mahogany walls, ceiling of titanium and vibrant atmosphere, Il Bar is at the heart of the hotel’s social life.  

Il Bar is popular with visitors and Knightsbridge residents alike as a place for drinks and light meals throughout the day; the early evening aperitivo; cocktails or after dinner drinks and in the summer, outside tables along Knightsbridge Green provide a perfect space to experience la Dolce Vita London style.
