Café Royal is a Grade 1 Listed Building on Regent Street overlooking Piccadilly Circus. It was originally opened in 1865 and by the end of the nineteenth century had become the place to be, and to be seen. At one point, it was said to have the greatest wine cellar in the world. It was closed in 2008 for a major refurbishment.
Walter Lilly working with the heritage architects Donald Insall Associates and The Crown Estate undertook the restoration and refurbishment of the areas of the building of historical and architectural significance. These areas included the Grille Room the Pompadour suite, the Domino room, the Main Entrance and Main Staircase along with several other large suites. The Café Royal reopened in 2013 and the areas that Walter Lilly worked on form the centrepiece of the development.
