Mayfair Art Tours
The Caprice group’s restaurants have always had a close association with the contemporary art world, featuring works by leading British artists including Damien Hirst, Polly Morgan and Tracey Emin, with many pieces especially created for the restaurants. Often, however, diners are unaware of the significance or story behind the works hanging on the walls around their table. To give more insight into the collections the Caprice group launched a series of Saturday morning art tours around their Mayfair restaurants in September 2012.
Starting with coffee at The Mount Street Deli at 9.30am, the tour - at the great price of just £20 - examines works at Scott’s and 34 and concludes at 11.30am at 34, where guests can stay on for a 3 course brunch and a Bloody Mary for an additional £40.
The next available 2014 dates are:

About the Tour
The tours are led by James Cahill from leading London gallery Sadie Coles HQ and examine works at Scott’s restaurant and private dining room, including Gary Hume’s Bouquet and Yoko XIII by Don Brown. The tour will then move on to the group’s newest restaurant, 34. Located just a stone’s throw from Scott’s, 34 offers a range of smaller-scale paintings by an international range of artists, ranging from the established to the newly emergent. In addition to the main restaurant, the tour will focus on the stunning new private room upstairs, The Emin Room, a spacious setting within which Tracey will continuously fill with one-off creations throughout the year as the development of the space continues to evolve, installing a variety of specially commissioned works including tapestries, drawings, neon text sculptures and cast bronzes. The room will stand as unique testament to her powerful oeuvre – comic, confrontational, and tender.
