Full-time Kitchen/BoH: Chef de Partie

About us

Our inspiration for Carousel was simple. When the four of us aren’t talking about food, drink or travel, we’re dreaming about it - so what if we were able to work side by side with the people behind our favourite restaurants from around the world, right here in London?

Split across three buildings and six floors, our revolving creative hub is home to a carefully curated programme of chef residencies, art exhibitions and all round awesome experiences - morning, noon and night. Not to mention the best lunch in Marylebone. 

Big name chefs from all over the world, wild life drawing, terrarium building, pasta making, live acoustic sessions, paper flower workshops, you name it... No two days here are ever the same. Subscribe to our newsletter to find out what's happening next. 

We also partner up with a variety of brands on events of all different shapes and sizes, offering up top-notch food and drink and creative in-house production across all three floors. Visit our Hire & Events page to find out more.
