Spot Prince George, Mick Jagger, and More at Rosewood London’s Scarfes Bar
Little George Alexander Louis of Cambridge may be making his Antipodean debut on the current royal tour (and looking as a cute as a button in the process, we might add), but closer to his home of Clarence House, the baby Prince can now also boast his first caricature at Rosewood London’s Scarfes Bar.
Drawn by cartoonist and illustrator Gerald Scarfe, Prince George is in good company for many reasons: his creator’s credentials range from illustrations for the New Yorker to Pink Floyd, and aside from his immediately family (including QEII and one of her corgis), he is surrounded by everyone from James Bond and Simon Cowell to the Rolling Stones and David Beckham across eight large canvases.
The Bar opened back in October with the hotel, but became Gerald’s first and only eponymous bar later last year, with the official launch of the artwork last week. Aside from the eight canvases of British life, there are an additional three on the wall to the left of the fireplace. Titled ‘Scarfe’s World’, they contain various drawings from Gerald’s past, including the “marching hammers” from Pink Floyd’s The Wall you can see above. A set of smaller works following current affairs will rotate over time.
Scarfes is open seven days a week from midday to 1am.
