Jimi Hendrix’s former Mayfair flat to open as a museum

The London room where Jimi Hendrix lived and entertained is about to open to the public for an admission of £7.50.

The guitar mogul moved into 23 Brook Street in 1968 and more than 45 years later the bedroom/living room of the home has been recreated.

Steak and chips, a bottle of Mateus rosé, and cigarettes were amongst Hendrix’s regular orders from Mr Love’s, the restaurant downstairs.

A room at the museum has a wall of album covers, and an index of the music played on the Danish, Bang & Olufsen turntable.

Deputy director Martin Wyatt said almost all the early bookers have gone for the £10 joint ticket.
