BACCHANALIA is located in London, its construction cost 75 million British pounds, it is housed in the old Porsche garage, its statues are 2,000 years old, the works of art were created by Damien Hirst and its dishes are signed by a Greek chef.
BACCHANALIA, which opened its doors to the public only a few weeks ago, is located in Mayfair and is the Greco-Roman inspired restaurant is the most expensive in the world. Both its interior decoration and set up are equal to Buckingham and Versailles Palaces.
This is without a doubt a legendary dining area that strictly adheres to British protocol and proves that despite the 400 pounds required per person for a meal, the person concerned has to wait up to 2 months to find a table. Again: Only if he is lucky will he find!
The 75 million British pounds that restaurant king Richard Caring (major shareholder of Caprice group) owner of Annabels, Sexy Fish, Scotch, Yve Club, etc. poured into its construction may seem mythical, but it seems logical for the end result.
The luxurious restaurant BACCHANALIA - which takes its name from a celebration in honour of the Bacchus God Dionysus - refers to ancient Greek and Roman feasts and orgies with lots of wine, music, food and beautiful people.
In the centre of the main hall - from floor to ceiling - the visitor faces Gary Myatt's contemporary interpretation of 'Romans in Decline'.
For VIPs there is also the privet part of the restaurant with plush seats, silver cutlery and porcelain tableware. Through the impressive private dining hall, which has been named 'Artemis', select customers are treated to a special treatment, being able to watch what is happening in the main hall.
For Vips customers there is also the members club for those who can afford to pay a very expensive subscription.
This is Apollo's Muse, London's newest members club inspired by the Admirable Gallery at Villa Albani. This special part of BACCHANALIA offers a personalised menu and a range of exquisite experiences that never see the light of day as both photos and social media posts are prohibited.
The most expensive restaurant in the world didn't have time to open its doors to the public and some are talking about the Michelin stars it definitely has in his pocket.
The man who inspired the dishes is none other than the successful Greek chef, kitchen star Athinagoras Kostakos.
The flavours come to complement the incredible setting. Through the mastery of Athinagoras, the palates are dazzled with unprecedented flavours.
"The dishes are made with the most expensive ingredients. There are rare collections of caviar and also a lamb that I bring exclusively from Greece. In BACCHANALIA I exhausted my creativity!".
