Wimbledon is adding to the list of VIP experiences at The Championships in 2024 with the launch of ‘Le Gavroche at The Lawn’.

The Experience Experts, Keith ProwseOfficial Hospitality Partner of The Championships, Wimbledon – have worked in-collaboration with The All England Lawn Tennis Club and world-renowned Michelin Star Chef, Michel Roux, to launch ‘Le Gavroche at The Lawn’.

The new destination is an exceptionally exclusive space within the already multi-award winning facility, The Lawn.

With Mayfair’s iconic Le Gavroche restaurant having closed its doors in January of this year, ‘Le Gavroche at The Lawn’ will offer guests the opportunity to experience an exquisite tasting menu showcasing exactly what made this dining experience – the very first to be awarded a Michelin Star in the UK – so very special.

These signature dishes will be perfectly paired with outstanding, hand-selected wines – all of this, embellished with the famous Le Gavroche Cheese Trolley, Assiette du Chef and a complimentary bar including premium spirits, bespoke cocktails and vintage champagne.

Roux said: “When we announced the closure of the restaurant, we said that the Le Gavroche name will live on, and this will be a Wimbledon experience to remember. It’s not just a chance to enjoy an iconic Le Gavroche menu, but also to be surrounded with some of the memorabilia that made Le Gavroche a welcoming and beautiful place to enjoy for so many years.”

The space itself will emulate that of its Mayfair predecessor with select SW19 styling; a private balcony, a glass wine wall frontage and a curated, intimate space with tables for 2, 4 or 6 guests – with finer details featuring original and historic artwork and artifacts from both Le Gavroche and the Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Museum’s archives.

With official Wimbledon 2024 hospitality packages now over 90% sold out, this represents the final opportunity for guests to guarantee their place on the world-famous Centre Court – subject to availability – at the world’s oldest Grand Slam and tennis event which will take place from Monday 1 – Sunday 14 July 2024.

Andy Vinsen, Managing Director of Keith Prowse, commented: “We are very excited to bring the ‘menu exceptionnel’ of Le Gavroche to the iconic SW19 this summer, and for years to come. In line with a core pillar of ‘never being satisfied’, we love what we do and challenge ourselves every day to do it better. We continually innovate and are delighted that this will add to what is already a highly valued and award-winning range of experiences at The Championships, Wimbledon”.

Usama Al-Qassab, Marketing and Commercial Director at The All England Lawn Tennis Club, commented: “We are delighted to welcome Michel Roux and ‘Le Gavroche at The Lawn’ to The Championships 2024. Working closely with our Official Hospitality Partner, Keith Prowse, our ambition is to provide guests with a range of fine dining experiences at Wimbledon, and we are confident the addition of this exceptional menu from ‘Le Gavroche at The Lawn’ will be warmly welcomed.”

Meanwhile, a planning row is still continuing over the club’s proposal to build an 8,000-seat stadium show court and 38 grass courts on Grade II-listed Wimbledon Park.

Wimbledon currently has 18 Championships grass courts, as well as 22 grass practice courts. So, the new courts would bring the club’s total up from 40 to 79 grass courts, almost doubling capacity for matches.

The Mayor of London’s office has now taken charge of the decision on whether to approve the All England Lawn Tennis Club’s plans to build on a Grade II*-listed park to expand the Wimbledon grand slam championships.
