Architectural Digest: Jimi Hendrix’s London Flat Is Open to Visitors
Now, Jimi Hendrix fans can see how the legendary musician decorated his London apartment with antiques and Persian rugs.
Tucked away on a cobblestone alley off of London’s Brook Street, audiophiles can find the former homes of two major musical talents. But you won’t believe which one had a flair for antiquing. In 1723, the German composer George Frideric Handel took up residence in a Mayfair flat, where he lived until his death 36 years later. More than 200 years later, a rising rock-and-roll musician, already gaining fame in Europe, moved into the same apartment with his girlfriend. That man was Jimi Hendrix.
