French restaurant Orrery in Marylebone is set to re-open in June following a refurbishment. As part of D&D London, the restaurant has been redesigned by Conran & Partners, to create a refreshed, contemporary new look. The bar will be transformed into its own space, featuring rich walnut and mahogany wood and a smartly upholstered leather banquette seating ideal for weekend cocktails and pre and post-dinner drinks alike. orrery 3Large vintage mirrors will also hang on the walls and textured fabrics in greens and greys will create a luxurious look and feel. There will also be ‘Fibo’ chairs designed by B&B Italia and sofas providing extra seating in the bar. The extensive bar menu will include a seasonal cocktail list and a wide selection of spirits, wines and Champagnes available by the glass, plus a selection of cigars. The Orrery rooftop terrace will also receive a makeover. Situated among the rooftops of Marylebone, with views overlooking St Marylebone church gardens, the garden terrace will have new B&B Italia furniture and will be lined with lavender flowers. Hurricane lamps will also provide a warm and intimate glow into the evening. The new furniture will accommodate more seated diners. Guests can also enjoy one of Orrery’s wine and Champagne experiences on the terrace with head sommelier Lorenzo Abussi during the warmer months.
