Brasserie was once part of The Regent Palace Hotel, which was built by 'T Lyons & Co. Ltd' on Crown land, and was designed in the Beaux Arts style by Messrs. Henry Tanner, F.R.I.B.A, F.J. Wills and W.J. Ancell. It opened on Wednesday, May 16, 1915; the largest hotel in Europe at the time, with 1,028 bedrooms.
The early 20th century was the architectural heyday of grand hotels and The Regent Palace Hotel had the opulence and scale of a transatlantic liner, with a marble entrance vestibule, a Winter Garden decorated with palms and rattan chairs, and a large Rotunda Court for afternoon tea. It was run by Joe Lyons as a more democratic version of the Ritz, "to make the luxuries usually available to the very rich open to the less well-off". Maids served tea, ran baths for guests and cleaned rooms by plugging tubes into a vacuum system built inside the walls.
In the early 1930s, Oliver Percy Bernard OBE MC (1881 - 1939), an English architect, and scenic, graphic and industrial designer, was commissioned to redesign some of the Beaux Arts interiors of The Regent Palace Hotel.
