There are plenty of ­reasons to book a high-­profile event-say, for the afterparty of a very important, very royal ­wedding-at the highly anticipated new location of the legendary Mayfair venue Annabel’s.

“It’s the most famous private club in London. Any event held here will go down in history,” says Jemma Cave, the design director for de Gournay, whose bespoke wallpaper was used by designer Martin Brudnizki-in ­addition to murals by Gary Myatt, furniture by Davison Highley, and lighting by Villaverde.

Since it was founded in 1963 by entrepreneur Mark Birley (he named it after his wife at the time), Annabel’s has been the preferred hangout of Holly­wood stars, the international jetset, and royalty; it is said to be the only club the queen has ever been to (officially).

Beyond its renown, there are the interiors. ­Throughout the space-which will include restaurants, bars, and a nightclub that can all be rented out by members for private parties-Brudnizki has applied what he describes as a “maximalist” style. “I’ve never seen interiors finished to this degree,” Cave says. “Each room is really a wonderland.”
