Renovating and recovering awnings and blinds is an essential service which Deans offer to all new and existing customers.Renovating and recovering awnings is a cost effective way of preserving your existing awning by changing the appearance or even creating fresh graphics and colour change, when circumstances demand, for example when there is a change of ownership. This is a typical example at REFUEL, a member of the Firmdale Group, in Richmond Gardens, London.
Most of the Firmdale Hotels in London and New York have their own restaurant and bar which is open to hotel guests and the general public. They are light and airy spaces – some with outdoor dining – and have a casual brasserie-style atmosphere. All have private dining rooms. The restaurants offer fresh, seasonal produce on their regularly changing menus.
Richmond Mews is just off Deans Street which has a very interesting history In 1764 Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, then a young boy, gave a recital at 21 Dean Street.
Admiral Nelson stayed in Dean Street the day before setting sail for the Battle of Trafalgar. He spent the night drawing up his final battle plans, including the masterstroke of painting identifiable gold and black checks on the ships. He is said to have spent the early part of the evening at a nearby undertakers selecting the coffin he would like to be buried in were the battle not to go according to plan, which proved to be time well spent, for he died in the battle despite leading the British fleet to victory.
Charles Dickens was also a regular on Dean Street when he was a young actor enthusiastically participating in amateur productions at Fanny Kelly’s Royalty Theatre at number 73-74.
