Inspiring Restaurant Designs: Christopher’s in Covent Garden

Christopher’s has been one of the most recognized spaces in the London’s Food Scene over the last 24 years (and counting!). Studio DeMatosRyanwas the team in charge of this restaurant’s renovation and we really want to share with you this unique piece of interior design.

Christopher’s Covent Garden has reopened with an opulent new interior designed in close collaboration with DeMatosRyan and the restaurant’s owners.
Originally opened in 1991, Christopher’s has become a much-loved spot amongst London’s media crowd. It occupies a Grade II listed building in a prominent location right in the heart of London’s Theatreland.

The main focal points of the room are a gold mirrored and brass clad bar and the black floor lamp called Sinatra and designed by DelightFULL. Bottles are displayed against a faceted smoked gold mirror backdrop cut with the repeat abstracted motif of a martini glass which is animated by a dynamic installation of suspended lights. The Dining Room (below) is a much brighter space with expansive windows overlooking London’s Theatreland. The furniture is bespoke and includes individual soft back dark wood chairs and booth seating, carefully arranged to create intimacy within the larger dining space and maximise magnificent views across Waterloo Bridge from the smaller dining space. The room is lit by slender black metal wall and ceiling lights designed by Serge Mouille. The Club Roomand Bar in the basement (below) shares the design language of the main spaces, incorporating mirror lined walls and a brass clad bar so that the spaces are distinct yet unified. The entrance hall sets the tone with its charcoal grey walls, restored marble floor and domed ceiling highlighted with warm silver ornament. Ceiling lights designed by DelightFULL.
