spy venues

“The South Place Hotel takes a different angle on the spy story. While perhaps not the stuff of spy novels, the hotel nevertheless takes inspiration from the thrillers that we love. So the laid back salon, perfect for an informal meeting with a megalomaniac city financier intent on world domination, is named Le Chiffre, after the Bond villain. The two largest meeting rooms at the hotel are called Purdey & Steed, honouring John Steed and his sidekick, Purdey from The Avengers. Continuing the theme, a further room is called Peel, after Avengers character Emma Peel, while private dining rooms Kuryakin and Solo take their inspiration from The Man From U.N.C.L.E characters Illya Kuryakin, the Russian agent (it’s painted red) and American Napoleon Solo.”
