Behind a curious window display of spotlit zebras, flamingos and penguins, Hux has brought its singular brand of eccentric elegance to Kensington High Street. The new 60-cover eatery fuses gastronomy, atmosphere, seductive cocktails and mysterious luxe, launching as London’s latest go-to for Modern British cuisine, private dining and late-night live music in unforgettable surroundings.
Adjacent to Kensington Gardens and offering an immersive experience of flavours and design, Hux’s menu was crafted by Head Chef Stephen Collins and invites diners to indulge in robust delights that pair tradition with a contemporary edge.
Highlights include the Poached salt beef, carrot, parsley and foie gras terrine, Coq Au Reisling mushrooms and shallots with truffle creamed potatoes and the Bittersweet chocolate mousse with clotted cream, peanut butter cookie and espresso syrup, which guests can enjoy alongside the resident DJ, stationed in a church pulpit and curating a live soundtrack of house and techno beats.
Hux’s interior is a visual thrill, blending vibrant aesthetics with intrigue and the unexpected; diners are cloaked in royal blue walls with sharp jade accents, while taxidermied parrots watch from darkened corners, a lion takes centre stage above, and a mighty giant giraffe oversees the room.
The upper dining enclave offers a playfully discreet venue for private parties, while a hidden staircase leads to the underground music lounge, destined to become a favourite for those in the know, where revellers can recline with Hux’s exquisite cocktails in the depths of their soft sofas to the soulful Afro-Latin beats of the house band, Baldo Verdu.
An essential destination spot and a sumptuously extraordinary addition to London’s restaurant and hospitality scene, Hux is now taking bookings for dinner and Sunday Lunch.
Hux is located at 7-9 High Street Kensington, London, W85NP. More information can be found at www.huxhotel.com.
