I am delighted to announce today that 24 years after Geoffrey Moore and I opened the doors, the lease of Hush Mayfair has been acquired by Soho House, which in many ways, is its spiritual home. I have been a Soho House member since before I opened Hush in 1999, and I'm a strong supporter of the group and its team so I'm delighted that, in Soho House’s words, ‘we finally got married after a very long engagement.’
Over 24 years, we have witnessed so many magical moments; Sir Roger Moore’s many birthday parties, to Victoria Beckham making cocktails behind the bar; Bill Clinton going into the kitchen to shake hands with the kitchen porters, and Giorgio Armani getting lost in the basement. We have so many happy memories and are delighted to be going out on a high.
Hush has been a part of my life for almost half of my life and holds a special place in my heart, as I'm sure it will be for the hundreds and thousands of customers we have looked after during such a long and successful run – the first dates, engagements, birthdays, and milestones that have been celebrated here. We have provided jobs for hundreds upon hundreds of remarkable people who have always considered Hush to be an extension of their family.
But it’s not quite ‘goodbye’ yet! Hush will be popping up in Holborn as part of our farewell tour, and many of our team members are making the move.
From Tuesday, 5th December (intitially for reservations only) Hush will be taking over our sister restaurant, Haché in Holborn, a beautiful space just moments away from High Holborn Station. Expect to see some familiar faces, as well as much of the look and feel of our original Mayfair home. On the menu, we’ll be bringing back some old Hush favourites, such as Chicken Milanese with black truffle, Venetian Tiger Prawn Curry Risotto and Seabass all’Isolana. We’ll also be migrating over Hush’s beloved cocktails, so you’ll still be able to get your favourite Woodford Old Fashioned and Garden Spritz in our new home.

I look forward to welcoming you in Hush Holborn soon,
Chairman and founder, The Hush Collection
