The building, dating back to 1854, was the original home of Josiah Blackburn’s “London Free Press”. It served as the Queen’s Hotel from 1871 to 1920 and became the home of the “Farmer’s Advocate” from 1921 to 1965.
With the intention of bringing “A Taste of Europe” and its warm hos-pitality to London the Marienbad opened on March 8, 1974. The restaurant took its name after the famous Czech spa Mariánské Lázne - Marienbad. Founded by queen Maria Theresa, Marienbad is located in the Western part of the Czech republic near the borders of Germany and Austria. A monument near Marienbad celebrates the fact that this place is the geographical centre of Europe. The Marienbad menu reflects the mixture of history and culture that is Central Europe. The spa itself is characteristic of the art nouveau style and was frequented by the likes of Britain’s King Edward VII., Goethe, Chopin and Mark Twain. The focal point of the Atrium is a mural of Carlsbad - Karlovy Vary, a spa town not far from Marienbad. Carlsbad was established in 1348 by King Charles IV.
