“This is my first real home of my own” – Jimi Hendrix, 1968

The top floor Mayfair flat which Jimi Hendrix called home during a pivotal period of his life will open permanently to the public on 10 February 2016. Following a £2.4M, two-year period of restoration, building and development, the upper floor rooms of 23 Brook Street will open as part of a genuinely unique new heritage site, celebrating the lives of two great musical figures.


Handel House (25 Brook Street) is the elegant Georgian townhouse where George Frideric Handel lived and worked for 36 years. He wrote many of his greatest works there – including Messiah – held rehearsals and first performances of his music and died in his second-floor bedroom there in 1759.
