The Bacchanalia restaurant in Mayfair opened its doors on December 1 in 2022 and boasts a broad interior space designed with mystical energy communicated through an impressive array of artworks. From captivating mosaics, Luna marble statues over hand-painted murals to ceilings pictured with modernized versions of ancient works. British artist Damien Hirst took over London restaurant Bacchanalia by injecting his otherworldly sculptures into its elegant layout designed by Martin Brudnizki Design Studio.
In the main dining room Hirst displayed five angelic figures that feature winged lions, unicorns, and angels alongside depictions of snake-haired Medusa and the Roman god of agriculture, Bacchus. Approx 79 2,000-year-old statues sit on the bar at Bacchanalia London together with three murals by Gary Myatt, that interpret French artist Thomas Couture’s 1847 painting Romans in their Decadence. However, in Myatt’s murals the classically dressed figures can be seen using laptops and holding iPhones.
Bacchanalia also hosts a brand-new exclusive members club named Apollo’s Muse. Inspired by Rome’s Villa Albani, the area will feature a bespoke menu, personalized service, and weekly events for members to enjoy.
