ABOUT HANDEL & HENDRIX IN LONDON In a single street in London, separated by a wall, are the homes of two of history’s most significant musical artists and a unique venue for your next event. 25 Brook Street is the house that belonged to George Frederic Handel and the place where he composed some of the world’s most enduring Baroque music, including Messiah. On the top floor of 23 Brook Street is the flat where, two centuries later, Jimi Hendrix lived with his girlfriend, record player and guitar. Both were the homes of musical innovators who chose London and changed music. After opening to the public in November 2001 as Handel House, and the recent addition of the Hendrix Flat in 2016, 23 & 25 Brook Street now co-exist together as a museum space that celebrates two of the world’s most remarkable musicians. The building is composed of a series of atmospheric rooms, each reconstructed to feel as if the iconic musicians have just left. Our location in the heart of Mayfair provides a bustling backdrop for our truly unique and exciting venue. Whether you wish to host a drinks reception, conduct a business meeting or take over the whole house for the ultimate party experience, our team can help make your event truly unforgettable.
