Introducing the capital’s most exclusive coffee shop.

Ettore’s Espresso Bar, in the London showroom of H.R. Owen Bugatti, is the only place in town where you can enjoy an Italian espresso against a backdrop of iconic automobiles, and a showroom filled with exquisite Bugatti Home Collection furniture.   

The first Bugatti dealership anywhere in the world to have its own espresso bar, H.R. Owen Bugatti, which normally operates by invitation-only, has opened its doors to the public for the first time.

Based at the French luxury marque’s London showroom in Bruton Street, Mayfair, Ettore’s Espresso Bar is named after the founder and patron of Bugatti, Ettore Bugatti. 

The staples of cappuccino, espresso, latte, Americano, flat white and macchiato are all available but the star turn is The Ettore Shot, an espresso served in a Bugatti carbon fibre espresso cup.

If you opt for The Ettore Shot, priced at £50, you’ll get full access to the lounge of the London showroom and see the best of Bugatti, on static display, up close, as well as being able to learn more about the French luxury brand through the Bugatti ambassadors based there.

The lounge is furnished with specially designed armchairs, made using the finest leather and blue-tinted carbon fibre – the same high-spec materials that feature in Bugatti’s cars. 

The showroom lounge also reflects Bugatti’s history and heritage, with a selection of art installations and sculptures that celebrate the brand beyond cars. 

In addition to Ettore’s Espresso Bar, there’s also the option of picking up some Bugatti merchandise, from baseball caps to VIITA for Bugatti smart watches.

H.R. Owen Bugatti is one of two Bugatti retailers in the UK, and the only official Bugatti Partner of Excellence.
