The Phene is a public house at 9 Phene Street, Chelsea, London SW3. It was designed by and named after the architect John Samuel Phene.[1] The Daily Telegraph called it "George Best's second home".[2]

It is owned by the property developer Robert Bourne, who in 2012 applied for planning permission to turn it into a £15 million house.[2] In 2013, it was announced that the pub had been saved from closure.[3] At the rumoured cost of £4 million, it represented the first London acquisition for new owners The City Pub Company.[4]
