raising a glass to David Bowie at Ziggy's, Hotel Cafe Royal

The lowdown

A glossy ode to David Bowie’s 1970s glam-rock alter ego, tucked away in a corner of sedate, stately Hotel Café Royal.

The concept

It’s not just Brixton that can lay claim to the late, great David Bowie – he was a regular at Hotel Café Royal, and threw a star-studded retirement party for his alter ego Ziggy Stardust at the hotel in 1973. To celebrate the association, the hotel has turned a previously undervalued nook of its mezzanine-level Laurent Grill and Sushi Bar into Ziggy’s, a slick tribute to the flame-haired rock star.
