Kate Middleton's Hen Party Venue
The venue for Kate Middleton's Hen Night in 2011.
Location: 86 Fulham Road, Chelsea, SW3 6HR
Description: Founded by entrepreneurs George Adams and Charlie Kearns (owners of the Coco Club in Verbier), Eighty Six was designed by designLSM. They turned this grand Chelsea townhouse into an exclusive restaurant and club. It features gold panelling and a mosaic floor. Adams said We had a marketing pack ... but when we pulled the plaster off we discovered the number 86 set in gold leaf. So having always thought that naming bars in that way was particularly unimaginative, this time it made sense.
It's also the prospective venue for Kate Middleton's Hen Night prior to her marriage to Prince William in the Summer 2011.
It was formerly a Cactus Blue restaurant.
