Arts and Culture Take Centre Stage at Quaglino’s

Quaglino’s, the iconic restaurant and late night venue in the heart of London’s Mayfair, St James, announces a curated program of live music.

Marianne Faithfull’s performance on Wednesday 5th November marked the start of Quaglino’s bespoke music programme, providing Londoners with a haven to enjoy first-class dining and unforgettable late-night experiences. A dedicated music line up of established and future stars has already been confirmed, with the following names performing every Wednesday over the next month.

This Wednesday 12th November, Quaglino’s presents Alexander O’Neal, followed by Beverley Knight, on Wednesday 19th November. November culminates with Gabriella Cilmi on Wednesday 26th November.

Best known for his solo career as a vocalist in the eighties, with hits including ‘If You Were Here Tonight’ and ‘Criticize’, highly distinguished and distinctive Minneapolis-based vocalist Alexander O’Neal will be taking to the stage at Quaglino’s to give an intimate, live performance, playing some of his greatest hits as well as a few new tracks.

Best known for her staggering live performances and A-list fans and collaborators, including David Bowie, Prince and Take That, Beverley is an award-winning singer and songwriter who has sold over one million albums, had several Top 20 hits and sold out London’s Royal Albert Hall on three occasions in recent years.

The Australian-Italian singer-songwriter known for her 2008 hit Sweet About Me has matured, returning to the music scene a ‘21st Century noir soul queen’. Her new track, Sweeter in History from her new album “THE STING”, is seductive, atmospheric and emotionally powerful, marking a decisive break from the past for Gabriella.

Alongside the music, Leica Camera and Quaglino’s have collaborated to dedicate a wall of their restaurant to Leica photography. Every four months the work of a professional Leica photographer will be exhibited. Photographer Ram Shergill kicks off the series with a selection from his portrait portfolio featuring legendary British icons, including David Gandy and the creations of the likes of Philip Treacy for Alexander McQueen. Internationally acclaimed British fashion and portrait photographer, Shergill has worked on editorial and advertising commissions for Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, i-D, Dazed & Confused and W magazine, and with illustrious subjects including Amy Winehouse, Diane Kruger, Naomi Campbell and Dame Judi Dench amongst others. The David Gandy image was captured for The Giving Back Foundation.

Quaglino’s officially re-opened mid-October following a multi-million pound renovation, and has already hosted some of London’s biggest names including: Prince Harry, actor Benedict Cumberbatch, models Jourdan Dunn and Alexa Chung, and artist Tracey Emin.
