The Maine – 6 Medici Courtyard

Woody Bruce


The fashion set are back partying and The Maine, Hanover Square was the place to be seen.

Whilst not opening to the public until the 15th November, The Maine played host to the British Vogue’s and Self-Portrait party last week, guests including the  brand’s newest campaign star, supermodel Irina Shayk and Lila Moss, Little Simz, Elfie Reigate, Clara Amfo and Liam Payne, while the likes of Sabrina Elba, Neelam Gill and Jean Campbell wore pieces from Self-Portrait’s.

Built in 1720, 20 Hanover Square is the only surviving Georgian ‘Grade II’ listed building on the newly renovated garden square, much of which was dug up for air raid shelters during the Second World War.  Redeveloped by Great Portland Estate, as part of a mixed-use building, combining office, retail and restaurant uses, the development and courtyard links Hanover Square and Bond Street.

Montreal gastropreneur, Joey Ghazal, and his designer Shayne Brady have brought new glamour to the restaurant trading over 3 levels, whilst the new Medici Courtyard is set to be the place to be seen, as our love of external dining continues to grow, whatever the weather.

Charlie Catterall of Etch acted for The Maine, whilst Woody Bruce of Bruce Gillingham Pollard acted for Great Portland Estates.
