Head Deeper Underground…
By Sarah Ratner
Situated in the heart of St James, London, is the beautiful Stafford Hotel. Following a renovation towards the end of 2011 it is fresh-faced and elegant whilst retaining its traditional charm. However it is underneath the cobbles of this five star hotel’s courtyard that you will find the unusual event space – The Stafford Wine Cellars.
Built in the 17th century by Lord Francis Godolphin, the Cellars consist of 350 year old stone. Used as a bomb shelter during the Second World War, there is war memorabilia accessorising the space. It is authentic and haunting and creates a distinct atmosphere. Once down there you cannot help but immediately feel transported into another time zone.
The space can take up to 44 people and with simple candlelight looks truly stunning. The cosy environment is ideal for an intimate dinner or a wine-tasting reception with the hotel’s superb sommelier, Gino Nardella. For a daytime meeting with a difference it is an exclusive hideaway, buried amongst approximately 6,000 bottles of wine!
