Michel Roux Jr to oversee new Langham London hotel bar The Wigmore
Michel Roux Jr is to oversee the food at The Wigmore, a new bar set to open at The Langham London hotel from the team behind the venue’s existing Artesian bar.

The Langham London also houses Roux Jr’s Roux at the Landau at the Langham restaurant.

Expected to open this summer, The Wigmore will take inspiration from traditional British public houses and taverns, but will aim to bring a touch of continental luxury to the concept.

Created by Roux Jr, who is also the chef-owner at his family’s two-Michelin-starred Mayfair restaurant Le Gavroche, the menu will include traditional British fare, including a raised veal and ham pie, devilled lamb’s kidneys and paprika-glazed short rib with bone marrow crumb. 

Drinks will come from the team behind Artesian with help from food and drink advisors The Gorgeous Group, including the house ‘Saison’ variety, brewed in partnership with Bermondsey microbrewery ‘Brew By Numbers’.

There will also be a selection of wines on tap, cask ales and craft beers.

The Martin Brudnizki Design Studio will create the interior design.

The venue is named after Robert Harley, Baron of Wigmore of Herefordshire, 1st​ Earl of Oxford and Earl Mortimer, and will feature his coat of arms in the décor, in a nod to his influence on London’s literary culture.

Roux at The Landau at The Langham opened in 2007, and also houses the Palm Court bar, also overseen by the Roux family.

The hotel itself is part of the Langham Hotels & Resorts group, including 20 hotels across Asia, Europe, North America and the Middle East.
