The changing face of Weighhouse Street, Mayfair, W1

An end of an era & beginning of another chapter for North Mayfair

During the final days of December, gone was the Mane Hair, Bosini’s & Mini Market on Weighhouse Street. Some might call it the end of an era, other’s might say that this was an inevitable move by land- owner Grosvenor.

You see, the success of Mount Street’s revival made its way North to Duke Street during 2014 with the opening of home-grown British brands- Duke St Emporium, Penelope Chilvers, E Tautz & Private White V.C. –gone are Garfunkel’s, Pizza Hut, Allan’s & Ryman Stationers.

With this change, Allans of Duke Street (finally) vacated their corner premises on Duke St and Grosvenor’s plans for the area began to un-fold. 2016 is set to be another big year for the street and we are looking forward to North Mayfair evolving further.


2014 also saw the opening of Corbin & King’s, The Beaumont Hotel at Brown Hart Gardens.

2015 saw the continued development of the street with the odd long-term establishment moving on.

2016 has so far seen the arrival of french brand, Ami Paris and the departure of Pure Waffle.


So, what do Grosvenor have planned for Weigh House Street?

Well, on July 2014 City of Westminster approved plans to amalgamate the former space of Mane Line & vacant store to become a café/restaurant with use of ground & basement levels.

The former site of Bosini’s & Mini Market, will become one single retail unit with use of both ground & basement levels.

So, watch this space as another street is re-born.
