The Guardian reports on Gatti House, a luxury building on the Strand, that looks to give its upper-crust residents a slice of the good life via “pizza elevators” that transport culinary delights directly to the master bedroom.

Each of the four flats in the luxury Gatti House development has a butler’s lift in the master bedroom leading up from a restaurant next door.

The new residents will be able to call down and place an order, and will not even have to get up to answer the door for delivery (although they may want to move through to the kitchen so they don’t end up with crumbs in their bed).

The buyers, in their 30s and 40s, and a mixture of overseas buyers and City executives, were all apparently fans of the idea of being able to order dinner in their pyjamas.

The lifts survive from the building’s previous life as the Adelphi Theatre’s restaurant, when the upstairs rooms were used as private supper rooms and frequented by actors and playwrights including Oscar Wilde, Sarah Bernhardt and Noel Coward.
