About Carousel


You can never be sure of quite what to expect from Carousel, but you are bound to get plenty of food for thought. Taking the fashion for supper clubs and pop ups to the next level, Carousel is a permanent restaurant and event venue which brings top chefs from around the world to showcase their skills for around a fortnight at a time.

Carousel is the brainchild of brothers Ed and Ollie Templeton. The venue originally opened its doors in 2014 at a site in Marylebone, but in 2021, moved to a new, larger site in Fitzrovia which spans three Georgian townhouses. Alongside the main dining room, Carousel also comprises a wine bar open throughout the day, a 10-seat incubator space which houses new concepts and longer term residencies, as well as private dining and event hire spaces.

The wine bar at Carousel is a minimalist and stripped-back space featuring bright white interiors and floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking Charlotte Street. In the warmer months, the windows open fully, with tables and chairs spilling out onto the street. The menu changes often and comprises snacks and small plates infused with Mediterranean influences, paired with a thoughtfully compiled list of wines and cocktails.

The chef residencies that Carousel is famous for take place around a kitchen island, allowing guests to be up close and personal with kitchen goings on. The ever-changing line-up consists of both homegrown and international faces, with several chefs in the past using Carousel as a test kitchen for fledgling restaurant concepts, making this a great place to find undiscovered talent and chefs to watch. The intimate 10-seater incubator space meanwhile, is located next door and features new concepts every three to six months.

Upstairs, there is a large, flexible space offering culinary workshops where guests can refine their kitchen skills.
