Situated within a period building, Moncks is a comfortable neighbourhood establishment nestled between some of London's most exclusive restaurants, bars and galleries.
Bespoke Multi-Arm Chandeliers & Bar-Top Antique Brass Table Lights
Named in honour of Sir Christopher Monck, the 17th-century maverick and Mayfair resident who owned the nearby Clarendon House, Moncks of Dover Street is an all-day neighbourhood brasserie that serves up crowd-pleasing classics from a delicious full English breakfast to a range of French brasseries classics and American burgers.

The design team for Moncks of Dover Street wanted to create a warm and inviting restaurant and welcoming dining experience with a character that complements the classic and cosmopolitan food being served.
Fettle has designed the space to reflect the Georgian architecture and heritage of Dover Street and conveys a timeless aesthetic as if it has always been there. The interior palette of Moncks is traditionally British, steeped in rich oxblood reds and royal blues with layered details and intricacies providing a modern twist. Fettle has maximised the floorplan and utilised natural light through both the front and rear areas to create two contrasting offerings within the same space.
Northern Lights were privileged to realise the brief set out by Fettle by designing and manufacturing a range of bespoke lighting fixtures that would marry well with their considered interior. Multi-arm brass chandeliers complete with matt opal glass spheres adorn the ceilings in the bar and restaurant areas, which are waxed during the manufacturing process to allow for natural ageing. The statement design of the chandeliers follows a distinctive form that allows light to pass with a diffused aura in every direction. Measuring a metre in diameter, the beautifully curated fixtures provide a focal point in an already eye-catching environment.
A timeless design comes to life through the placement of multiple bespoke antique brass table lamps that sit upon the eight-metre-long aged pewter bar. Each lamp is complete with an off-white silk shade with edging detail and linear fluting. The boutique-styled fixtures play a considerable part in forming the bar's classic Parisian aesthetic. A high gloss paint finish enlivens the bar's under counter. In contrast, a tiered timber back bar with bespoke antique mirror and blue glass panels provide a contemporary touch to the traditional design.
Fettle Design have created an inviting space for leisurely dining, utilising rich and luxurious material and finishes with fine detailing and contrasting yet complementary quirky artwork.
