Harvey Nichols' Fifth Floor Café will undergo its first complete refurbishment in 20 years this month.
It will reopen in late November with a bigger, open plan space, and a new interior alongside a new food and drink offering created by a team overseen by executive chef Jonas Karlsson.
EDGE Architecture + Design, London-based interior architects and designers, have been brought in to design the new interior.
The Knightsbridge department store's café will be given a new horseshoe-shaped Espresso Bar with its own enlarged seating area with high tables and oak bar stools.
The main café area will also offer a variety of seating areas, from leather banquettes running along the side and by the floor-to-ceiling windows, to more open seating in the central space.
The new flooring will be in a herringbone pattern in complementary shades of white oak, and light and aged elm.
There will also be a new open plan kitchen, clad in white and gold tiles.
